From the post:
Space is a popular theme in modern board games. I think the reason this has happened, besides the popularity of Star Wars, Star Trek, and Battlestar Galactica, is that there is just so much you can do with it. Themes like races, resource gathering, combat, or colonization of planets are all things that you can do in the vast emptiness of space.
Today we will be looking at a co-op game, currently on Kickstarter, that focuses on the colonization of volatile planets. The year is 4010 and mankind still hasn’t gotten around to colonizing other planets, lots of red tape involved. In a tragic turn of events, the Earth explodes leaving only a small group of humans rallying to the nearest life-sustaining planet. Players will work together to colonize this new home world while dealing with dangers presented by the planet. Let’s dive a little deeper to see if this game is something you would like to support.
Last Starfleet is a 2-6 player, cooperative hand management game that plays in 60-90 minutes.
