    Outer Rim is just great. Easy to learn and easy to teach. I would like to see more of everything that this game has to offer.

    More planets/smugglers/weapons etc.

    Me and my group absolutely love it!

    Star Wars: Outer Rim

    his game plays similarly to Firefly, with players taking shipping, smuggling, and bounty hunting jobs; purchasing mods for ships and gear for characters; and taking on crew to help, using a keyword system similar to Firefly’s Misbehaving. It scores similarly to Xia, with players racing to reach ten fame points. Pros: Less brutal than Firefly or Xia, with an easy way back after dying; interesting storytelling mechanics; character roles are varied; both your character and your ships flip to give new abilities after meeting goals; very streamlined combat, including against other players; and a short play time with shorter player turns, so less time waiting than in Firefly or Xia. Cons: Not a terribly original game; maybe a bit too streamlined in combat and missions, which tend to be short and simple; limited replay, at least until a badly needed expansion comes out; not as rich a Star Wars feel as FFG’s Rebellion, largely because it draws from the original trilogy, the cartoons, and Rogue One for pilots, ships, and contacts without as many references to familiar storylines; and not a lot of strategy, complexity, or depth, even for a sandbox. The board (which is not modular) feels a bit cramped and static. This is a good game that a strong expansion might make into a great game.
