Battlestations (tabletop starship simulator), plus 300 page Advanced Rulebook!
“One of the best gaming experiences I’ve had all year… Anything I say can’t compare to actually playing the game. Some games in my life…translate into stories that bring back great memories. These games I’ll never get rid of them and always be glad to own them. Battlestations is one such game.” – TOM VASEL
“Battlestations is the living manifestation of every spaceship I drew in my middle school notebook instead of listening to my teachers. Its modular design is tremendously influential among game designers, and it’s great to see it roar back onto the scene.” – MIKE SELINKER, Designer of Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Co-Designer, Betrayal at House on the Hill
Battlestations is a multi-map board game that simultaneously features ship-action in space AND the events on board the ships involved in the conflicts. Several video games like FTL have emulated this concept, but Battlestations is still the true original, and still the only board game that puts you on board a starship with ongoing adventures for your characters learn from and grow.
The game rules are very simple but they allow for complex RPG-like imaginative choices like teleporting to an enemy ship, hacking their helm controls and steering their ship towards a black hole before ejecting yourself out the air lock.
Battlestations has been slowly building a loyal community over 16 years and I’ve been hard at work preparing this brand new edition.
60-180 min. 1-9 players, usually with one player as The Enemy. Many missions can be played solo, and some missions work for large groups.
