Star Wars Versions of Classic Board Games

I was recently looking at the long history of Star Wars Monopoly games. So when I was browsing through the toy aisles the other day I had it at the front of my mind. Then I noticed that there were actually a lot of classic board games with a Star Wars theme. Operation,  Battleship, Risk and Clue all had Star Wars versions.

So to put them all in one place seems like a good idea. So without any further ado, I’ll jump right into this list of Star Wars Versions of Classic Board Games.

#1 – Star Wars Monopoly

This one is covered in a lot more detail in the article: Star Wars Monopoly Edition Board Game List.  But here are the two versions that you can currently find on store shelves.  The first is the 40th anniversary Star Wars Monopoly edition, and if you’re actually looking for a real Monopoly game experience, then this is the one you want. The second is the Star Wars Monopoly “fold out” edition. This is a modified board that is NOT a traditional Monopoly game. It’s updated, simplified and could be just the right thing for you… but don’t get something you aren’t expecting or you could be disappointed in your purchase.

#2 – Risk Star Wars Edition

There are two versions of Star Wars Risk that are currently available. The first is classic “Star Wars Risk” and the second is the “Star Wars Black Series Risk”.  The Black Series in all Star Wars collectibles means “higher quality” and in this case it’s reflected in both the pieces and the board. Here are some details about both versions of the game.

#3 – Clue Star Wars Edition

In this Star Wars version of the classic board game Clue, the objective isn’t to solve a murder, but instead it’s to steal the Death Star plans. You have to discover

  1. Where Darth Vader is going to attack next
  2. The location of the Death Star plans
  3. Which vehicle you can steal to escape

The other big difference is the layout of the board, which is updated to be a 3-D multilevel monstrosity. I can’t actually imagine playing this and having fun. It seems like a stupid way to update this game. Am I wrong? Tell me in the comments, we can hash it out.

#4 – Battleship Star Wars Edition

This is another one that I’m not a big fan of. For one, you only get 4 ships per side instead of 5 in a normal game of Battleship. Second, the grid is 9×9 instead of 10×10. But neither of these are as big of a problem as the actual ships themselves. The ships are large and elevated off the board, so that they look difficult to put the pegs in. Another problem is that with the ships being larger than the stands, it makes it near impossible to put some of the ships right together.

Take a look for yourself. Maybe this is alright, since usually the Battleship game doesn’t come out a whole lot – it’s a closet game that mostly stays in the closet. But for me, even though this is a movie franchise I love, I’d avoid this version of the game and just get the classic version.

#5 – Trouble Star Wars Edition

There are two Star Wars Trouble versions out.  You can get a classic trilogy version featuring R2-D2 or a Force Awakens version with BB-8. Though I had some problems with the last two entries, I don’t think these Star Wars versions of the classic board game Trouble have the same issues. They both update the game, but they don’t detract from it.

Take a look at both of these versions, either one would make a good present for a kid or for a family game night.

#6 – Sorry! Star Wars Edition

Sorry! is a game that I played a lot as a youngster. It is an easy game to play and understand, and it doesn’t take too long or get too complicated. The Star Wars version of the classic board game Sorry! keeps the rules simple and updates the board to the shape of the Millennium Falcon.

#7 – Star Wars Chess Set

I love Chess. I wish I were better at it. There’s not much to say about this, except that it’s Chess, and thank goodness that Hasbro didn’t try to update Chess to change the board to a circle that’s supposed to be The Death Star.

The lame thing about this game is that the pieces are not consistent. White has two knights, and they are Han Solo and Chewbacca. That doesn’t make any sense to me. What would be the problem with having Han Solo as the knight, and having two of him on the board? Or have the knights be X-Wings, or Tauntauns, or anything that can have two on the board.

That’s my gripe with it. If you’re just starting out in chess you would probably do better with a standard board, or even the Mario Bros. chess set, since they put two Yoshi’s as the knights, and two Princesses as the bishops.

There is another set, the Star Wars Saga Edition, but it’s more expensive and has some of the same problems. I’m leaving it off of here.

#8 – Operation Star Wars Edition

This one is like Trouble, in that you can’t really mess it up. It’s a board that shakes, and you’re having to fix it. In this Star Wars version of the classic board game Operation, you aren’t operating on Cavity Sam, but instead performing repairs on one of the droids from the Star Wars movies.

#9 – Star Wars Black Series Trivial Pursuit

The Star Wars Black Series Trivial Pursuit game is a deluxe edition of Trivial Pursuit. It keeps all of the same rules as Trivial Pursuit, and the board is great. It keeps all of the game intact and just updates it with images.

Something that I really like is that the pie pieces fit into the game piece from the side instead of dropping down into it from the top. This lets you still see the logo of the piece that you’re using. It’s a really nice look. There are 1800 trivia questions from the movies included with this game.

Extra: If you like Trivial Pursuit, and you’re more a fan of the Original Star Wars Trilogy, then you should also know that there was a previous version of Star Wars Trivial Pursuit. The Star Wars Original Trilogy Trivial Pursuit game is still available, though it’s price has gone up some.

#10 – Guess Who? Star Wars Edition

This is a really fun one to include on this list. There are again two versions of this game. Both are reasonably priced. The one in the dark box is for ages 5 and up, the one in the white box is for 6 and up. The younger version has 15 characters per board, and the older version has 24.

Both are fun so take your pick and then play with your favorite 5 and 6 year olds!

#11 – Life Star Wars Edition

With the Star Wars edition of the classic board game Life, you have different choices than you have in the classic version. Instead of deciding whether you should go to college, you have to choose between light side of The Force and the dark side. I haven’t played this version, but it looks like a lot of fun.

What’s your favorite from this list? Are there some that you have? Some that you think would be good to try? Am I unreasonable in my wanting them to not put different pieces in the Star Wars Chess set? I love hearing from readers, so tell us what you’re thinking!
