We were just talking about Viking Gods with its paper map and thin counters so now we go to the Star Wars Universe with Assault on Hoth that also has a paper map and rather thin components but the game packs a punch so you don’t really notice.

Assault on Hoth is a tactical battle game much like the command and colors system in which you play out the battle of Hoth as seen in the movie The Empire Strikes Back.

The game includes all the necessary features like taking down the power grid, using the force and harpooning walkers to make them fall like dominoes.

The game is very well balanced and very detailed and you track damage for individual walkers and speeders. A super fun game that is out of print but well worth your time hunting it down.

Assault on Hoth, Star Wars the Queens Gambit and Star Wars Epic Duels are the 3 best Star Wars Boardgames out there and a must for a Star Wars Fan collection!
