Huge, capital starships might be trading fire back and forth, but it’s the small, nimble starfighters where the action is. They zip and weave among each-other, as well as the debris being created between the larger ships. This is combat on a personal level. Pilots dodge and weave, looking to get an angle on an opponent while making sure to not leave themselves open to attack. That’s just the sort of action that happens in Shattered Void, a new sci-fi dogfighting wargame that’s up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players take on the role of a squadron leader, directing their fighters in combat. Squads consist of about 5-15 ships per side (depending on how you load them out), with games taking 1.5-2 hours. You can check out a rules overview there in the video. They also have posted the full rules online (which White Dragon Miniatures says will always be available and free that way), as well as some print-and-play ships for you to test it out. If you try it and like it, they would greatly appreciate you joining in their campaign. They’re getting very close to their funding goal already with still 25 days left in the campaign.
