Star Wars Missions is a simple solitaire adventure game. Each mission is a 74-page book which contains the start of a story, a mission briefing (telling the player what cards may be used), and then the rest of the story. After the mission briefing the player chooses a character card and a specified number of weapon, vehicle, and ability cards which can be used on the mission. At many points in the story the player will be required to use a weapon, a vehicle, or an ability, to check against a skill level, and in some cases to choose one of several possible courses of action.
The object is to complete all the missions without running out of mission points. While the player in general cannot lose a confrontation, if he or she does badly mission points will be lost. When playing on the advanced level every weapon, vehicle, and ability costs missions points for every use.
The basic set includes 1 mission book, 1 mission blueprint (a diagram of locations), and 12 cards in addition to the rulebook, score pad, log book, rules summary sheet, and dice. Supplemental missions were sold, each consisting of a mission book, mission blueprint, and additional cards.
