Star Wars plus Descent sounds too good to be true, but Fantasy Flight Games plans to create just that with their upcoming board game, Imperial Assault. I’m really big fan of Descent’s rule set and mash it up with the Star Wars Universe and you’ve got my attention. Hopefully it won’t be too long of a wait for this release.

From Fantasy Flight’s website:
Imperial Assault casts you and your friends into the climatic events following the Death Star’s destruction above Yavin 4, and offers two full game experiences within the Star Wars saga. In the campaign game, you and up to four other friends play a series of thrilling missions woven together in a narrative campaign, and in the skirmish game, you and your opponent muster your own strike teams and battle head-to-head over conflicting objectives. Whether you play as a hero of the Rebellion and fight alongside iconic characters like Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, or command the seemingly limitless armies of the Galactic Empire, you’ll enter the Star Wars universe in Imperial Assault.
