Sarlaacs and X-wings

How To Make It
  1. Choose the game grid that best suits the space you have available.

  2. Print out the number of board game tiles that suit your chosen game board size.

  3. Draw the game grid on a hard surface such as a patio and add numbers in the squares as well as the arrows moving you up and down the board. Remember to make the squares big enough to stand in.

  4. If you add an up arrow, place a X-Wing or hyper drive at the base of the arrow. If you add a down arrow, place a Sarlaac pit at the base of the arrow. Follow the picture for ideas.

  5. The aim of the game is to be first player to reach the Death Star which you should place at the far corner of your board.

  6. All players start at their home base in Tatooine. This is square number 1.

  7. To decide who goes first, all players need to roll a dice. Whoever gets the closet to 6 gets to take off on their X-Wing first!

  8. To advance, each player rolls a dice and moves the resulting number of squares.

  9. As you get nearer to the Death Star, you can only land on that space if you roll the exact number you need to reach the goal.

If you don’t have any outdoor space, you can always use coloured washi tape to create a game board inside your house!
