Big ship combat in a small $1 package

Kickstarter launch on September 15th

Have you ever asked the question: “What if you removed hex grid maneuvering from a war game and focused on just the combat?Stellar Armada represents an exciting new concept that attempts to answer that question!

About the Game

Stellar Armada is an exciting microgame of starship combat. Each player controls a powerful star cruiser with numerous systems and weapons. Players can fire missiles, recharge shields, repair damage, maneuver to avoid attacks, and more. Fight your ship to its last breath even as reactors blow and oxygen streams into space! As the commander of your ship it's up to you to outthink your opponent, take risks, and emerge victorious.

Inspired by the “Obligatory $1 Pledge Level game”, fledgling game designer Jerason Banes applied his creative skills to design an inexpensive game that players would want to come back to again and again.

The game is played on two poker-card sized player mats with seven markers per player and one or more D6 dice. Mats show players what ship systems are available. Markers are used to track the destruction of those systems. Dice are used to decided the outcome of weapons fire.

(Dice are only included in the $5 Deluxe Edition.)

Players are forced to think on their feet as their ship is savagely destroyed underneath them. Waste precious missiles or use less powerful energy weapons? Spend dwindling energy on evasive maneuvers or recharging the shields? Should they repair the engines or let loose with everything they have left?

In Stellar Armada there is no right answer! Only the decisions you make and the victor that emerges.

Number of players: 2-4 (four player requires two copies of deluxe edition)
Time required: 10 - 20 min
Recommended ages: 13+

Re: Stellar Armada - $1 board game
Hey Warren, fancy meeting you here! (I know, two board game designers finding each other on THE board gaming site. Unheard of. )

Huge thanks for all your help in play testing! There's some better pics of you over on my Facebook page along with a first-name callout for your help.

I'm glad you posted as I wasn't able to find the right place to put my info on the Protospiel website. You made my search a lot easier. And now I'm subscribed to you so I can keep up to date on the progress of your game! (Loved that end-game!)
