Rebellion is a very fun game.
The rule book looks quite thin - so I'm hoping for a quick learning experience.

The rules are pretty straight forward.  The brain burn comes during the hide and seek confrontation between the rebel and empire.

The Rebellion box is massive by the way.

I'm hoping someone comes up with a clever way to play solo before my daughter decides she's too grown up to play board games.

Can Rebellion be played solitaire? You know, for those of us without friends.

Too much hidden information methinks.

So you're interested in Solo play?

I don't think there is any real way for it to be played solo IMHO.  The rebel player is dependent on the secret base location.  I know that people play it solo, but I don't see the fun if you know the location that is supposed to be secret information for the Empire player.

Supposedly, that's what the app addresses - http://starwarsrebellionsolo.com/
