Just don’t give in to the Dark Side, and look at the answer key. Where is the fun in that?
How To Play 📜
This game is a two parter. ✌️ Using the clues below, you must determine what emojis represent each film in the Skywalker saga. Each film is made up of 9 emojis representing various story points. Emojis from the Unicode standard version 14.0 set were used in creating the game. You can find all emojis here if needed.
Episode I: The Phantom Menace
Problems always seem to start because of money, don’t they? A blockade forces two Jedis to try to resolve the conflict. But they fail and eventually find themselves in the seas of Naboo where they fail a second appeal for help before barely escaping the jaws of a colo claw. Eventually, they find themselves on Tatooine where they befriend a young boy and his mother. The boy enters a race. After he wins, they take him with them to the galactic senate before returning to Naboo in time for a battle that is won with the help of the Gungans and their great big energy bubbles.
Episode II: Attack of the Clones
In a nighttime metropolis, an investigation is underway. Those clues lead a Jedi to the stormy oceanic world of Kamino, where tests are discovered and clones are being constructed. He continues on to Geonosis, where he and his friends eventually find themselves chained for execution in the Petranaki arena. But they escape the claws of an Acklay and fight their way home. In the end, all’s well that ends well… especially when you end on a wedding.
Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
A kidnapping comes with a call to the Jedi for help. Anakin begins having visions regarding what Padmé is expecting. The multi-armed General Grievous creates a web of problems for the Republic, and Obi-Wan must deal with him directly. Anakin is lured by the demon-like Sidious who finally reveals himself. And with the official Order 66 proclaimed, the fateful demise of the Jedi begins, leading to a tragic confrontation on a world of fire and magma. In the end, Anikin is left maimed and is transformed into a new playing piece in Sidious’ game. The great pillars of the Galactic Republic have fallen to a new imperial reign.
Episode IV: A New Hope
Droids escape to a desert planet and are found by Luke and Obi-Wan. They make their way to a cantina to solicit the help of a smuggler to get them to Alderaan. There they find Han Solo who agrees—and who definitely shoots first. After a jaunt through hyperspace they find no Alderaan, just a tractor beam that pulls them into some dark moon. It turns out to be a new Imperial base, and in their escape attempt, they wind up in the trash. Most of the team makes it out alive just in time to join an attack effort against the base which leads to its ultimate destruction.
Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
The rebels have a new winter base. Repeat. The rebels have a new winter base. Luke is instructed to go to a marshy planet for training. There he learns from the wise yoda who is not what you would expect. Meanwhile, the others land on an asteroid and barely escape the innards of a space slug. But the Falcon now needs repairs, so they head to a city in the clouds. There, an old friend betrays Han and he winds up frozen in a block. Luke arrives to help his friends but it doesn’t go well for him either, and he ends up down a hand.
Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
It opens at a palace in the desert where a rescue doesn’t go as planned. The trio lands themselves on a barge and almost meets their fate to the Sarlacc before a daring escape. A second enemy weapon is under construction and the trio lands in the forests of Endor to disarm its shields. A high speed bike chase ensues and they have a run-in with a local tribe of plush cuties. In the end, Luke is almost killed by surges of the emperor’s force lightning, only to be saved by his father, who takes the brunt of the shocks instead.
Episode VII: The Force Awakens
A pilot is sent to the deserts of Jakku to obtain a map that marks Luke Skywalker’s location. A ball of a droid then carries that map to Rey. Soon enough, a new fellowship is formed including Han Solo and a familiar furball of a first mate. They travel to the planet of Takodana where Rey finds Luke’s lightsaber and has visions upon touching it. Another ice planet serves as a base, but this time for the dark side. The base causes destruction but is ultimately destroyed itself. Rey finally tracks down Luke herself, at the top of a mountainous peak. There they share no words. She just presents his lightsaber in an outstretched hand, hoping he will reach out to hers to take it?
Episode VIII: The Last Jedi
It begins with an explosive battle and bombs dropping. In another part of the galaxy, Luke lives in a hut and enjoys… an interesting beverage. But he refuses to help the cause. He’s even prepared to burn down the entire Jedi legacy. Fin and Rose have some misadventures in a casino, while Kylo and Rey defeat Snoke and his Praetorian Guards. Holdo makes a heartbreaking sacrifice that splits Snoke’s ship in two. And finally, Luke decides to help, using force projection to save the Resistance.
Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker
Kylo Ren is searching for a wayfinder that once belonged to his grandfather. Rey finds a dagger with a dark past. Chewbacca & the dagger are captured, but C-3PO comes to the rescue because he has the inscription deep within his memory. Rey learns who her father really was. The wreckage of the Death Star lies on Kef Bir in the middle of an ocean. Rey storms to Exegol for a final battle surrounded by bolts of lightning. Rey meets with the Dark Lord. There is one last moment of affection for the dyad. At last, Chewbacca finally gets redemption, and receives his award.
