Star Wars: Bounty Hunters is a light strategy game, where players will compete to be the best bounty hunter in the galaxy. Players will have three goals which will help them earn points: capturing targets, completing contracts, and purchasing droids and crates at the Jawa market.
There is no down-time in this drafting game: all players go at the same time. Players begin with 4 cards in hand. Each turn, players pick a card from one of the available piles (targets, hunters, contracts, and Jawa market). Then, they can opt to either play or sell a card. Finally, they give their remaining hand to their left-hand neighbor.
Target cards have defense values, while droid and hunter cards have attack values. To capture a target, players must equal or exceed the target’s defense values by putting hunter and droid cards in front of their targets. Once a target is defeated, it is placed horizontally.
Players can also fill contracts by choosing contract cards. These give bonus points for capturing specific targets and purchasing crates.
The first player to get 4 targets earns bonuses, and this triggers the final 2 turns. Using the scorepad, players will count the points they earned from capturing targets, filling contracts, and purchasing crates, and they deduce points they spent to hire hunters. The player with the most points will be declared the best bounty hunter in the galaxy!
