At the end of 5 rounds of betting and guessing, the Secret Document is revealed.  Players receive points based on how accurate their guess was, and a new round begins. When all players have been the start player once each, the game ends, and players add their points together to determine the winner.

The Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion Is Now Available for Star Wars: Legion

July 16, 2018

Now, you can bring these objectives to vivid life and reshape the very landscape you fight on. The Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars: Legion is available now from Fantasy Flight Games, encouraging you to bring a new level of Star Wars realism to your battlefields today!

As the desperate struggles of the Galactic Civil War play out across the galaxy, the goals of the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire are rarely as simple as the total destruction of the opposing army. Similarly, whether they take you to the dense forests of Endor, the vast deserts of Tatooine, or the frigid wastes of Hoth, the battles of Star Wars™: Legion see you fighting to accomplish a variety of different objectives.

The Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion offers several ways to shake up your games of Star Wars: Legion, starting with the way your objectives are represented on the battlefield. Each of your Star Wars: Legion battles tasks you with completing specific objectives in order to gain the tokens you’ll need to claim victory. You might fight to secure transmissions containing vital intelligence, recover lost supplies, or simply attempt to gain control of strategically important positions. Normally, all of these objectives are represented by objective tokens placed across the battlefield.

With the twelve new objective miniatures contained in the Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion, however, these objective tokens become a part of the landscape of the battleground itself. The three comms stations, four moisture vaporators, and five supply crates you’ll find here deepen your immersion in the Star Wars galaxy by providing a visible representation of your objectives or adding more thematic variety to your terrain.

The battles of the Galactic Civil War take place on many fronts. Put your own personal touch on each one with the miniatures and cards found in the Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion!

The Pickle Rick and Jaguar miniatures are moved across a dynamic board made up of tiles that are constantly being added, rotated, and flipped. Once play is over, everything can be placed right back into the Pickle Rick game case.

Rick and Morty: The Pickle Rick Game will initially be available in limited quantities at Cryptozoic’s Booth #115 at San Diego Comic-Con, at Booth #601 at Gen Con, and via Cryptozoic’s eStore.
