Really nice game. Simple rules with a lot of strategic and tactical decisions. Fun theme and variations on the original Battleship. Nice, nice components.

Played solo to give it a try. I really hate Hasbro now. This game has so much potential, but they released it unfinished, and have left it to wither on the vine. This could have been a great franchise with proper support.

They took a ho-hum game like battleship and turned it into something special. THIS is the way all battleship games should be designed.

Can not wait to get my hands on this one. I am actually excited for a space game - and that is saying a lot for a hard core fantasy person such as myself! Bought at underhills July 30th 2011, $65, but I wanted it

Just played two games tonight. Really enjoyed the game. I hope there are expansions for cards, ships, maps, races, etc.

Simple game but with tactical depth. There is much more to it than simply advancing head on and roll some dice: Use the abilities of your ships and cards and maneuver your ships wisely to make the most of it. A lot of fun

It's everything I wanted from Aerotech, all those years ago. Fast, action-oriented, and the ships look awesome.

Very, very good here. Better than Heroscape! (at least comparing the base sets).
To be honest, I was expecting something similar, because the authors are the same ones who developed some of my favorite games such as Star Wars Epic Duels, Heroscape and Summoner Wars.
Battleship Galaxies is so simple to learn but quite deep, strategic and tactic. There is lucky involved for sure, but I love this kind of games also for that. Overall, one word: AMUSING.

Game mechanics are well done (the old battleship to-hit system remand is a finesse!) and the mix-combo between ship abilities and cards is great; the possibility to play permanent card-attachments on the ships (like heroes, ship enhancements and additional weapons) gives to the player a good customization feeling for his fleet.
Very, very good components too: the ships are beautifully detailed and a marvel to see on their elevated stands on the board during a game, the artwork is good, there are two boards.. and I liked the idea of the comic in the box as a background story for the game. Really appreciated. High production value.

In my opinion there are some balance issues (Wretch are a bit too strong). A real pity, but something that can be handed (see my balance suggestions on the forums).

I hope for some kind of expansion - a new stand-alone set with two new factions and 4-players (team) rules and scenarios would be the absolutely best for me.


EDIT: in the end I bought a second copy of Battleship Galaxies to create a more complete game (mostly for 4 players), because I see that the game will not be supported with expansions... so bad.

After hearing about the project, I wasn't really impressed. A handful of minis and a kinda stupid, Battleship license-forced battle system... But because of the designers, I was sure that after two or three expansions it will be a decent game. It took only one actual play to convert us to avid fans. The whole combat side of the game is a low-fuss, intense fun, and the battle system makes complete sense, doesn't feel gimicky at all. Despite the relatively low number of actual models there are multiple variants of each ship/squadron giving a whole lot of options choosing your forces, and on top of that, the tactic deck preparation adds another layer of fun. Here's hoping for dozens of expansions, but despite the expectations, the base game alone will be sufficient enough for quite a while.

What a wasted and missed opportunity from Hasbro/WotC... This is such an amazingly fun Space Combat game, such a shame it has been put to bed without so much as a single expansion lullaby.

As it stands, even without any add-ons to expand its horizons, Battleship Galaxies is one helluva great game, dogfights happen often, grudge matches break out and flaming death greet you at every critical hit!

The rule sets are easy to learn and its strength lies in this simplicity as it doesn't waste time thrusting you into the melee.

Stay clear if you love your charts/tables/reference sheets because BG is about fast, tactical and often frenetic fun.
