Anyone who is a fan of Star Wars will love that they can also play board games along with the many other Star Wars activities. Of course, they can watch Star Wars movies and go to conventions, but sometimes you just want to curl up at home and enjoy board games. And now Star Wars can be part of that mix for anyone who wants to have a blast and have the best characters of all time to back to life in your living room. The board games options with Star Wars is as vast as the other Star Wars choices and anyone who wants to start playing will need a bit of a Star Wars Board Game Review to get started.

A Few of the Choices

Here are just a few of the choices with the Star Wards board games series. There are others out there — but this will give you a taste of your options as you start to venture into the series. The Queen's Gambit is one choices and this is really the most complex of the games on the list. It recreates the ending of The Phantom Menace and has four simultaneous battles. It includes 155 miniatures and three boards. It even has a three level board that represents the palace. It is for two to four players. Another great choice with the Star Wars Board Game Review is the Epic Duels.

Now, this game was published in conjunction with Attack of the Clines and it allows the player to recreate the amazing battles from Star Wars or even to come up with their own battles. This game allows you to know what it feels like to fight with Boba Fett or with Han Solo or to see a fight between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Emperor Palpatine. This is a great game that many players love to enjoy as their first introduction to the Star Wards board games series.

More Fun

Now, with the Star Wars adventures, the Clash of the Lightsabers is another choice. This is only a 20 minute card game, so it doesn't require such a commitment. It's a great game for the youngest of children to those who just want a fix of their Star Wars fun without a large time commitment. Here, it recreates the lightsaber battle between Qui-Gon Jinn and Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace. There are three rounds to the battle and is the goal is to win two out of the three. Sometimes as you play you'll have to retreat in one battle to then be in a better position for the next.

It's a game that includes strategy and that keeps the player on his toes. Another awesome game is Star Wards Stratego. If you already like Stratego and you love Star Wars, then this is the choice for you. It combines the game of Stratego with the pieces like Yoda and Darth Vader that have special powers in the Star Wars game. One side chooses to play the Dark Side and the other will work with the Force. The characters come from Episodes I, II, IV, V and VI. And, there are four varieties to this game so there is always something new and refreshing to do.

Even More with the Star Wars Series

A final recommendation with the Star Wars Board Game Review is the Jedi Unleashed. Here, every player has a team of Jedi and they work to kill the enemies who are mostly Battle Droids, Count Dooku and Jango Fett. With each turn, the players move one of their Jedi and then attack one or more of their enemies by rolling the dice. This is a fun game but it doesn't have the depth of strategy that some of the other games have. So if you're looking to really act like a Jedi, you might want to play one of the many other games.

All of these games allow the payer to really get into the look and feel of Star Wars and to have a blast as they play. Get in the mind of a Star Wars character today and enjoy your time playing.
