Spacefighter Board Game Up On Kickstarter

I don’t know about you, but I just love dogfights between different starfighters. If there’s a scene of squadrons fighting against one-another in a sci-fi movie, chances are pretty good that’s my favorite scene. Spacefighter, a new strategic board game up on Kickstarter, looks to bring the thrill and excitement of those encounters down onto your tabletop. Get your squad together and beware the opponent’s Mothership.

From the campaign:

Yellorg aggression is matched only by Bluzark’s smug confidence – And there can only be one spacerace left standing. Choose a side & your fleet to command a triumphant victory. Last Mothership standing wins. Protect her at all costs with your 3 Fighters & your choice of 2 Special Fighters. But don’t underestimate your Mothership, for ACTIVATING her EMP can wreak havoc in all directions.

SPACEFIGHTER is a grid based, combat game with elements of chance & strategy. Accessible, with 2-Player games lasting between 30-45 mins. Roll 3 Action dice per turn to decide your combination of Move, Attack, or Draw. The leftover D6 is the Distance Roll which determines how far your ships travel with each movement.

The Kickstarter is about 1/5 of the way to their goal with still 25 days left to go.

    Somebody needs to make Silent Death all plastic and take it to Kickstarter. Now that was a dogfighting game.

      Hell yes. Loved Silent Death. Still have so much of it, would love to see it come back.

      Silent Death is still in production and for sale on their site!

      Also look into Star Eagles by Ganesha games (successfully kickstarted and moving toward release) and 5150 Fighter Command by Two Hour Wargames. Both systems let you build your own fighters and use what minis you want.

        I know it still exists, but as piles of old metal models that could use an update and a better distribution presence. Hence the “plastics” comment.
