Players receive a number of Jedi cards through a random draw. The Jedi cards are placed around the circular battle field board along with the enemy cards which include Geonosians, battle droids, Jango Fett and Count Dooku.
On each turn, players roll dice and, based on their role, move one of their Jedi and attack enemies pieces. They can also move an enemy toward another player's Jedi and attempt to injure that Jedi. One of the dice includes Yoda on two sides. When Yoda is rolled his marker is moved closer to Geonosis. When Yoda arrives, the game is over.
Players win by destroying the most creatures, counting only those on their surviving Jedi cards. There is also a game mechanism that allows eliminated players back in the game by using unclaimed Jedi cards.
