From the campaign:

Just when you thought you’d seen them all, here comes yet another space conflict game. What makes this one different from the rest? A lot, as you will see.

In Fleets, each player buys unique mother ships with spaces for upgrades and escort ships. These can be organized in different ways, and your choices will determine the outcome. Do you want a strong, aggressive fleet, a diplomatic fleet, or maybe a resource extractor fleet?

Once your fleets are constructed, they are deployed to star systems, where they will engage in diplomatic actions and battles. At the end of the round, all surviving fleets on the game board will receive rewards. Any fleet that is the sole controller of a system scores 1 VP. First player to reach 7 VPs is the winner.

    Oh boy I can’t wait for Soul’s comment on this one…

      Sorry to disappoint. Fleets doesn’t look any more embarrassing than the boxes of Fleet that my grandfather would have me pick up for him at the drug store. It’s certainly no Rise Within. Original name aside, I’m all sentimental and crap when it comes to four Swedish brothers cooperating on a project. It’s like my favorite scene from Splash meets my favorite Muppet chef meets the family dynamic I had always dreamed of. Oh man . . . now I’m crying . . . which is to say, vomiting, since real men don’t cry. They vomit.

        HEY! This is you, isn’t it?
