In Star Wars: The Clone Wars – A Pandemic System Game, players choose from seven Jedi, including Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker, each with their own unique Force abilities. Across four epic scenarios, the Jedi must team up and defeat a member of the dark side like Count Dooku and General Grievous. Each scenario can be completed using different Jedi powers, squad members, and objectives, adding high replay value to every adventure.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a powerful saga of heroes coming together to save the galaxy, and this game is no different! It’s also the culmination of a fantastic partnership between one of the world’s biggest franchises and board gaming’s defining cooperative system,” said Sophie Gravel, head of Z-Man Games. “Our cooperative Pandemic System helps bring iconic Star Wars characters and stories to life – with our Jedi needing to combine Forces to stand a chance against unending waves of Separatist troops. Players will be on the edge of their seat with every playthrough as they fight for victory…and bring balance to the Force.”
