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.

Project: Pandora

From the press release:

D6Frog wrote:
http://www.manticgames.com/Shop-Home/Project-Pandora/Product...

Quote:
Project Pandora: Grim Cargo is sci-fi board game pitting the Corporation against the mysterious 8th Race, who have boarded a Corporation Starship in attempt to steal its precious cargo – a cargo which the Corporation will do everything in it’s power to keep hold of.

Written by the author of the sell-out Dwarf King’s Hold series, the game features an innovative dice-driven combat mechanic and a scenario based narrative, allowing you to recreate the mission.

It includes 20 highly detailed plastic Corporation and 8th Race miniatures, stunning new artwork depicting the starship and action counters, and the Grim Cargo rulebook, featuring a host of fast paced and easy to learn rules that will lead to some incredibly tense games.

This set includes:

Project Pandora: Grim Cargo Ruleset
10 x Corporation Marines
10 x 8th Race Scavengers
Starship Tilepack
Game Counters and Dice






There is some more images/info in the thread.

Forget the FFG or Lego Star Wars, forget Starship Merchants, forget even Star Trek Catan. The sci-fi game of the year that everyone has been waiting for is coming!!!!

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Yes it's Starcraft: Risk!!! I can't wait.


Sorry for the sarcasm but this sort of thing really does seem superfluous to me.

Edit: added to db.

Overkill: Last Man Standing is a board game about space ships, guns and blood! The players control a spaceship crew fighting against the invaders.

This game has a deck of cards, four dice, eight paper figures, a game board and the rulebook.

There is three missions: Steal data (Capture the flag), Invasion ( Time race ) and Overkill (Last Man Standing). In each mission you need to remake your strategy to win.
