Description Edit | History

(from back of box)

"Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo and Chewbacca are trapped in the Death Star Trash Compactor. It's your challenge to help them escape to the freedom of the Rebel Base."

"R2D2 spins out your moves, but you must decide what passage ways to follow. The safe way is the long way. And time is running out. You must turn off the tractor beam and pick up a pair of secret plans. Will you take short cuts that risk encounters with the Force? You will if you're daring, and could be the first to board the Millennium Falcon, fight your way through Tie Fighters, and reach the rebel Base to win!"


This is one of two games released by Kenner almost concurrently with the original Star Wars movie (Star Wars: Destroy Death Star Game is the other).

Each player races through the Death Star with two tokens (Luke/Leia and Han/Chewbacca), picking up good/bad 'Force' cards when they land on blue spaces.

Both tokens must reach the Millennium Falcon and fight their way across TIE Fighters to win the game!

Board features some cool prints from the movie as well as a great outside view of the Death Star.

  • Once you finish this game you can then breakout your 'Destroy Death Star Game' to launch your X-Wing assault and complete your Star Wars gaming experience!
