I love science fiction.

I read it, I watch it and I'd like to play it. I haven't had much access to sci-fi games in the past but am really looking forward to some of the new crop that are coming.

In the meantime, below is a list of what I've noticed is coming soon - please add whatever I've missed.

(BTW - I'm into 'hard' sci-fi. I.e. I see fantasy as a separate category, if you're wondering why I haven't included those games here).

Est. 2008. SEVEN(!) years and still going strong!

*UPDATE August 2015 - click here to jump to new additions*

If you're new to this list and you're interesting in games with a sci-fi theme, hit the subscribe button. As you can see the list is updated regularly (several times a month).


Like the list? Get (and display) the microbadge! mb

Note: Inclusion on this list is not an endorsement. Users can make up their own minds and use whatever criteria and discretion they would like to, to decide on the merits of each game in relation to their own gaming needs/tastes.

My personal attempt at Building a Sci-Fi Games Collection.

Sci-fi and a dex game? Sounds good to me!

EDIT: Available here from Print & Play Productions: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/47270/item/1928261#item192...

(If it wasn't for the fact international postage is the same cost as the game I would be very tempted).

No this is not to tell you that The Amazing Science Fiction and Horror Trivia Game is being released, instead it's....


The FFG SW LCG Guessing Contest


It's simple, all you have to do is this:

1) Comment on this item (don't add a new item)
2) State what date you think the first LCG expansion pack will be announced by FFG. I will use the "published on" date on the Star Wars: the Card Game news page to determine the winner - as seen below.



3) the contest will remain open until FFG makes the first announcement. Any comments made or edited within 24 hours of the announcement date will not be valid.

4) That's it, it's that easy! The winner will get 10gg or an opened pack of Star Wars trading cards that I have left over from my card collecting days (they aren't from a game but they are pretty). I'll post a picture of them soon. No it's not a big prize, it's just for a bit of fun.

Edit: given the different dates formats used around the world it would be helpful if you could list the date as, for example, 1st Nov 2011, instead of 1/11/11 or 11/1/11 to avoid confusion - thanks!

Edit: CONTEST RESET!!! Given the delays this game has suffered and that it is finally going to be released 9 months after it's expected release date, all entries will be reset. If you want to enter again comment below.

I now return you to your normal programming.

EDIT: we have a winner!

FFG have announced the publication of the first expansion pack (Star Wars: The Card Game – The Desolation of Hoth)here: http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=3727

The date was Nov 9 2012 as seen here:



So the winner is:

Gudjon Torfi Sigurdsson
Iceland
Isafjordur
Isafjardarbaer

Who was only off by 2 days in his guess. Prize coming to you soon!

Thanks for sticking around and playing. When I announced the contest I didn't imagine it would be open for 15 months.
