About

Update: If this project reaches the $700 goal, I will also be creating videos teaching the expansion, Rise of the Empire.

My name is Seth Cloud, and I am the operator of a channel named LonelyMan BGs, where I create high quality videos on how to play board games. 

With your help, I'm looking to create an awesome video series on how to play the game Star Wars: Rebellion, as well as its expansions. I recently created a series of 'how to play' videos for the popular Lord of the Rings-themed game, War of the Ring

 War of the Ring | The How to Play Series 

Here's another example of a 'how to play' video I have created for Mage Knight:

As I did for War of the Ring, I wish to do for Star Wars: Rebellion. These are two of the coolest two-player experiences that one could chance upon, so in order to make this series come to fruition, I need your help. 

I am looking raise $700 for the core game as well as the expansion, Rise of the Empire. With your help, I will create a series of 8 videos that go over all of the rules in Star Wars: Rebellion, in addition to 2-3 videos for the expansion. 

So, why should you spend your hard-earned money on some videos?

Teach Your Friends

  • Star Wars: Rebellion registers in at a BGG weight of 3.69, which is a pretty heavy game for most players. Instead of mucking around, trying to force-feed them rules, let me coax them into a gentle rules-learning submission through my artful videos. 

High Quality Video

  • As my previous work can attest, I strive to provide the highest quality camera work possible. Just check out that War of the Ring series that I created, shown above. 

Motion Graphics & Animations

  • Throughout the videos, small animations will light up areas on the map, cards will pop up on screen, and the characters will move around the map. This is done in order to best demonstrate how to play the game. 

Professional Voice Over

  • You will have my voice to guide you along the way, as I explain each rule in the game. 

Now, let's get into the breakdown of what videos will be created. 

Star Wars: Rebellion | Game Overview

Star Wars: Rebellion | Setup & Victory Conditions

Star Wars: Rebellion | The Assignment Phase, Action Cards & Leaders

Star Wars: Rebellion | The Command Phase & Mission Cards

Star Wars: Rebellion | The Refresh Phase & Probe Cards

Star Wars: Rebellion | The Rebel Base, Sabotage, and Structures

Star Wars: Rebellion | Loyalty, Subjugation, and Captured Leaders

Star Wars: Rebellion | Combat & Tactic Cards

Star Wars: Rebellion | The Death Star and Destroyed Systems

Expansion:

Star Wars: Rebellion - Rise of the Empire

  • This expansion is largely inspired by the movie Rogue One and offers new leaders, new missions, and changes combat entirely. 
  • Update: I will be creating 2-3 videos for the expansion if the $700 goal is met. So, woohoo, free videos! 

Thanks to Ashley J. for advice on how to arrange the videos for this category:

  • 1A. Rise of the Empire | Setup and Victory Conditions
  • 2A. Rise of the Empire | The Assignment Phase, Action Cards & Leaders
  • 3A. Rise of the Empire | Cinematic Combat & Advanced Tactics

Risks and challenges

There are no risks or challenges. If this series is funded, I will begin publishing videos in August of 2019, and the production may go into September 2019.
