Choose your Team
Each player starts by choosing a Character Card, which is your persona to adopt during the mission.
You'll all have a chance to take charge, and lead the team to victory during a particular challenge. It will require you to step up, manage communication, read the relevant mission details, and make the calls that will get your team to the other side.
Optionally, feel free to role-play, use a different accent, and generally be the biggest ego in the room.
Note: If you don't have 6 stacks of Challenge cards set up, jump over to the Setup Guide and sort them into piles.
Jump online... or don't...
Rebel Revolt is designed as an online game. You need to go online in order to check your answers, as well as access hints and solutions when your team gets stuck (of course, I'm sure you won't get stuck. You're far too clever!).
However, we know better than to give rules to a group of trigger-happy rebels! You can play Rebel Revolt offline with our Printable Hints pack.
Just print the 'printable hints' pdf in the 'game' folder, and you're good to go! (And don't worry, you can fold the hints sheet to play it completely spoiler free!)
(How to solve puzzles)
Rebel Revolt is broken into 4 challenges. You'll receive these as printed puzzles, and check your answers on your phone by entering them on this website.
To get a feel for this try solving the Training Mission card before starting the game. If you get stuck, just tap on one of the hints to get a clue. If you're still unsure just click the solution box to reveal the answer. However, using these will lose you Rebel Points. If you're playing competitively, this could cost you big.
What's the name given to Mech A?
When you solve all the puzzles, that make up a particular challenge, tap the button at the bottom of the page to proceed to the next phase of your mission. Yes, this means you can cheat, but then you'll have to deal with Tess...
Hint: A is for apple. It's also the 1st letter of the alphabet.
[Loose 5 Rebel Points].
How did you go?
Once you've completed the Training Mission, it's time to get this party started! To move to the next stage just tap the large red button at the bottom of the page. Throughout the game, this is how you'll go to the next challenge (the next stack of cards).
Yes, the crafty one among you just mentioned cheating... but it's a lot more interesting to solve puzzles and have fun. Keep being cunning through. You're going to need it.
When you're ready, mash the big button:
