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.
