Five Great Science-Fiction Games (Deseret News)

Posted: September 22, 2012 in Uncategorized

Cody Carlson has published an article at the Deseret News about his favorite sicence fiction games (by which he apparently means space games).

He starts out…

Have you ever wanted to manage a galactic empire? How about interact with strange, new, alien races. Or perhaps you’d just like to command vast starfleets in epic space battles.

There are a host of science-fiction board game titles out there — some great, some not. The following is a list of my top five board games with a science-fiction/space opera theme.

1. “Battleship Galaxies” from Hasbro/Wizards of the Coast is perfect if you’re a space combat junkie. “Battleship Galaxies” offers a variety of spaceships, large and small, in the deadly fight between humanity and an evil alien race known as the Wretcheridians. A riff on the old “You sank my battleship!” motif, players must roll dice that hit only within letter and number grid coordinates. Players may also complement their ships with special weapons and crew members for combat bonuses. This two- to four-player game definitely is not your mother’s “Battleship.”

Go read the rest of his article to find the other four games.  Do you agree?
