Great game, even at Solo

I am a long time player of titles such as Xia and Firefly, my only real concern with these were the setup time and amount of time it plays. I was advised to try out OuterRim as its a quick setup, and a slightly shorter playing time - it also has a pretty solid Solo mode.

Had a quick game with the AI and really enjoyed it, even without any 'second player' to bounce off - then tried a 3 player game and it was extremely fun. The Characters, locations, ships and Items are all instantly recognisable even for someone who isn't a huge Star Wars Fan, and really help the game feel more than just a pick up and deliver type outing. The randomness that can be added ensure each game feels different enough to be enjoyable each time, whilst making sure there isn't anything 'too' random to push the game into a more luck based event.

Excellent game, relatively simple and sensible rule set with a few twists to make it a little crunchier, but really flies by, great game and good production as you would expect from FF.

Take to the stars and become a living legend in Star Wars: Outer Rim, a game of bounty hunters, mercenaries, and smugglers for 1-4 players!

In Outer Rim, you take on the role of an underworld denizen, setting out to make your mark on the galaxy. You'll travel the outer rim in your personal ship, hire legendary Star Wars characters to join your crew, and try to become the most famous (or infamous) outlaw in the galaxy!

But it won't be easy since the warring factions of the galaxy roam the outer rim, hunting down the scum that have proven to be a thorn in their side, and other scoundrels looking to make their mark see you as the perfect target to bring down to bolster their own reputation. Do you have what it takes to survive in the outer rim and become a living legend?

In more detail, a game of Outer Rim takes place over a series of turns that sees players taking dangerous jobs, tracking down bounties, upgrading their ship, and more, all in service of gaining more and more fame. Regardless of the path you take to get there, your goal is to gain ten fame, which can come from a variety of sources, such as completing your character's personal goal, collecting on bounties and jobs, delivering illegal cargo, taking down patrols from the various factions struggling over the galaxy, and enjoying the finer things in life by purchasing luxury items with your hard-earned credits.

While the path to victory may be different for scoundrels finding their way in the Outer Rim, everyone starts from the bottom with a simple starship. Your player board not only tracks your fame progress, but also contains slots for your ship, your character card, gear, reputation, modifications, jobs, and bounties.

 1-4 PLAYERS  |  120-180 MINS  |  AGES 14+
