Hello everyone,

I am looking for some cool game with miniatures. One thing I should mention ahead I dislike fantasy (it's nothing personal, just my special taste). Can you recommend me something? Ideally 3 hours max length (rather shorter my friends are not that much boardgame enthusiasts).

Thanks
Jan

Galaxy Defenders might do it for you.

edit: or Cry Havoc if you want something competitive.

Galaxy Defenders +expansions. Lots of alien minis, most of the characters are taken from popular Sci-Fi shows/movies and there is a good overall storyline/development between all the games.

+∞ for Cry Havoc. Excellent miniatures, and a cool sci-fi theme. Plus, the different groups each have very different playing styles, so there's lots of variability and replay-ability.

Slaughterball is a sci-fi blood sport game along the lines of Blood Bowl. It offers 3 levels of play, from the very-accessible Scrimmage matches up through League Play that allows for athlete advancement on unique teams. The core mechanic involves building a dice pool of custom dice and rolling them against each other to see who succeeds in contested actions. It plays very easily after a learning game or two. The miniatures are on larger scale from most games of this type, and the game looks quite impressive when set up with the big board and vibrant player pieces.
