Last month we made you a promise. We showed the first half of Star Wars themed games in our 15 Star Wars Games You Didn’t Know Existed article, but the full list would require another fifteen from the latter part of the alphabet.
Take a few moments to refresh your memory with the original list and then continue with these recognizable games that have been given the Star Wars treatment!
The abstract game of Qwirkle consists of 108 wooden blocks with six different shapes in six different colors. There is no board, players simply use an available flat surface.
Players begin the game with six blocks. The start player places blocks of a single matching attribute (color or shape but not both) on the table. Thereafter, a player adds blocks adjacent to at least one previously played block. The blocks must all be played in a line and match, without duplicates, either the color or shape of the previous block.

Timeline: Star Wars is a card game played using 110 cards. Each card depicts a Star Wars Universe event on both sides, with a number referring to the point in time in which that event occurred on only one side. Players take turns placing a card from their hand in a row on the table. After placing the card, the player reveals the time information on it. If the card was placed correctly with the number in chronological order with respect to all other cards on the table, the card stays in place; otherwise the card is removed from play and the player takes another card from the deck.

Tsuro (Asteroid Escape)
Each player has a spaceship marker that comes on the board by one edge. In his turn player places a tile that will advance his marker on the board, creating a path. Also players must avoid asteroids flying on the board. The goal is to remain on the board last and therefore push his opponents off the set by forcing their path out of bounds.
This game is an adaptation of Tsuro with a new twist: Asteroids will disrupt things.
Ubongo: Star Wars: Das Erwachen der Macht merges the best-selling Ubongo game with numerous motifs from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with the Jedi players racing against time to demonstrate their skill in covering ground with the predetermined tiles, no matter the light or dark side is in play. Whoever succeeds in time moves their spaceship ahead in the galaxy, with the fastest players naturally moving farther. After seven rounds, whoever has explored the galaxy the most wins.
On each turn, you roll the dice UP TO THREE TIMES, trying to roll as many of the same characters as you can. You roll Yahtzee style … selecting the dice you wish to re-roll … and re-rolling up to two times after your first roll.
As in Yatzee you throw five dice. You can throw each die 3 times and you score by getting certain combinations.
In Star Wars Yatzy you don´t have a fixed set of combinations, but instead you draw mission cards. Each player have two mission cards and they draw a new if they have less than 2 cards. you dicard a card if you finish a mission. If you don´t use all your throws you can add one mission card. When one player has finished 8 missions, the game ends and the player with most points wins.
We’ve talked about a number of these games in the past, but never the Star Wars versions!. Ubongo! and Qwirkle are parts of our permanent collection, as is Tsuro. We’ll have to search long and hard to procure the Star Wars versions of them since they were only released overseas! But that’s half the fun of collecting – the hunt!
