Take your first steps into a galaxy full of adventure with The Force Awakens™ Beginner Game from Fantasy Flight Games
Coming in the third quarter of 2016, The Force Awakens Beginner Game allows you to enjoy the action and energy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens through the lens of the Star Wars Roleplaying Game.
You and your friends will travel to Jakku, the remote desert planet above which was waged one of the last great battles of the Galactic Civil War. In that battle, the Empire suffered a horrific defeat, and scores of its warships plummeted into Jakku’s arid sands. Shortly afterward, the remnants of the Empire and the nascent New Republic signed their peace treaty, and civilization quickly forgot about Jakku. In the following decades of peace, the planet became a haven for junk scavengers, criminal elements, and those trying to stay hidden from the rest of the galaxy.
It is on this forsaken planet—the same planet that saw the fateful introductions of Rey, BB-8, and Finn—that your adventures begin.
