Fantasy Flight Games have a long history with tabletop gaming in the Star Wars IP. They already have every other type of tabletop gaming covered with card games; dice games; role-playing games; X-Wing; which allows you to re-enact the space skirmish warfare that Star Wars is famous for; Armada, which took those space battles to a bigger scale and allowed you to play out entire fleet battles; and Imperial Assault, which combined a board game with roleplaying game elements and allowed to you fight small skirmish missions on the tabletop.

We were given a rough idea of where Solo: A Star Wars Story falls on the timeline when the film was first announced, but new details get a little more specific. Del Rey Books, the official publisher of Star Wars novels, printed a nifty timeline for all of the novelizations that have come out thus far.

The events of Solo take place before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars Rebels, the highly acclaimed animated series that’s in its fourth season, as pointed out by The Hollywood Reporter. That also means Solo takes place after Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, and just after the Empire’s rise. This is where Del Rey’s handy-dandy timeline comes into play. Star Wars: Tarkin and Star Wars: A New Dawn (a prequel to Rebels that takes place six years before the … [Read more...] about Where does Solo: A Star Wars Story exist on the Star Wars timeline?
The Force Awakens wasn't the first attempt to continue the story of the Skywalker family. The original Star Wars sequel trilogy actually launched way back in 1991, although you'd be forgiven for missing it--after all, it debuted in bookstores, not the local theater.Now that The Last Jedi has split the Star Wars community in two, some fans have proposed that Disney should have brought author Timothy Zahn's Thrawn books--the original Star Wars sequel trilogy--to the big screen instead of introducing viewers to Rey, Finn, Poe and the rest. But those books are decades old. Would they really be better than Lucasfilms' newest efforts? And what makes them so popular, anyway?It's all a matter of timing.Reanimating a dead universeIt's hard to imagine these days, when every year brings a new Star Wars movie and a truckload of spin-off media, but in the early '90s Star Wars was effectively dead. In the '80s, Lucasfilm had tried to keep the franchise alive with animated series like Droids and … [Read more...] about The Star Wars Books Fans Wish Disney Had Done Instead Of The Last Jedi
