“Funko Games Strikes Back” with Star Wars Rivals, a brand-new expandable dueling strategy game! Funko is the leading producer of pop culture collectibles. It has demonstrated its eagerness to dominate the “expandable” strategy board game space with the incredible Funkoverse series of miniature games based on your favorite movies, series, and brands.
Star Wars Rivals puts you at the helm of a deadly battle between the Dark and Light Sides of the Force in an expanding head-to-head duel game. Take strategic control of iconic locations by assembling your forces and outmaneuvering your enemies. It’s an action-packed game where you can collect 30 characters and mix and match them to build your ultimate team! The new line features stylized vinyl figures of some of the most popular characters from the Star Wars universe, including Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Yoda, Boba Fett, and many more.
With the Star Wars Rivals Premier Set, you can play Star Wars Rivals right out of the box! Featuring four exclusive characters, a stunning prism die, and unique abilities and location cards, it’s the perfect introduction to Star Wars Rivals. Choose your side of the Force and add new mystery characters to your collection with the Character Booster Packs. Fans will be lining up to collect them all. You can combine the Rivals and Booster Packs for additional characters, locations, abilities, and unlimited replayability!
Star Wars Rivals has everything you want from a Funko game. It has novel mechanics with straightforward and engaging gameplay! Join forces by teaming up three characters from the alluring Dark Side or the noble Light Side of the Force. Strategically deploy your trio of characters, and then roll the dice to see where you’ll make your mark. There’s more, though; with a handy action card up your sleeve, you can tip the odds in your favor. To ensure victory, you must combine the influence of characters at each location. At each round, you will collect location cards scored during that round and upcoming locations will be added to the fight in the following round. Keep playing until all locations have been won, and the player with the most points will emerge as the ultimate winner.
The Star Wars Celebration hosted a limited pre-release sale for all Star Wars Rivals products. The Star Wars Rivals Premier Set will be limited in availability starting May 4th at Walmart.com. Later this year, the game will be available at retailers everywhere.
This is your chance to shape the galaxy’s destiny in the battle between light and dark! Are you ready to take on this exciting challenge and see if you have what it takes to dominate the galaxy?
