Released after Return of the Jedi, part of a series of games depicting Star Wars events, this game plays out the battle on Hoth. The object of the Imperial player is to destroy the Shield Generator at opposite end of the map to Imperial deployment. The rebels' goal is to forestall Imperial victory until the "Transports" are away. Setup is limited to certain areas of the map, thus setting up a very accurate scene to play from the film "The Empire Strikes Back." Troops, vehicle strength and damage are tracked on the map, using various counters. One even gets to use Luke on the battlefield and his all important Force ability. Dice are used to determine combat attack and defense. It's a hex based map, and the counters all have stands. Low rules learning. Random card powers throughout game (events.) VERY little hidden from other player.
