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.

Active kickstarter project: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/798220334/time-flux-an-e...

EDIT: the kickstarter was sucessful, and the game has since changed it's name to Arc and then had an unsucessful indiegogo campaign.

This will be available at GenCon. Preview here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/142245/item/2255112#it...

Now available at the publishers online store: http://timetravelgame.com/store/
