With the release of J.J. Abrams’ STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS approaching in just about two weeks, families will soon feel themselves overcome by The Force, and seeking new ways to experience a galaxy far, far away at home. From Wonder Forge comes a pair of new games that are rooted in the worlds explored in STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS – STAR WARS: GALAXY HUNT, and STAR WARS: STAR DESTROYER STRIKE! Both are featured picks in my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide here at THE ROCK FATHER Magazine.
A Target Exclusive this Holiday Season, STAR WARS: STAR DESTROYER STRIKE puts up to four players against each other in a race to get their tokens into the safe zone. The laser-armed STAR DESTROYER in the center of the board can work for you or against you, but whoever’s piece ends up getting zapped will find the true power of The First Order! Decked-out with graphics showcasing some new faces like Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron alongside Chewbacca – the face of a losing child is slightly akin to a Wookiee ripping arms out of sockets after losing a game of Sabbac.
Available at Walmart, STAR WARS: GALAXY HUNT is a simple game that works well with younger players. Simply pull back the spring-loaded push arm and place all The First Order and Resistance pieces in place. Each player attempts to remove a piece without the arm moving, and at the end of the game the numbers (+ or -) are tallied, with the highest score winning the game!
