Ever since picking up some of War Rockets space fighters several years ago I have been on the lookout for a decent set of Space Combat rules – Well Ganesha Games latest offering on Kickstarter just might do the trick.
Star Eagles is a science fiction action game of futuristic space fighter combat that allows you to play out the battles from your favourite books, movies, and TV shows. In a standard game, each player controls a squadron of 4-12 ships competing in exciting, objective-based missions in space, on moons, and in the atmosphere of planets. The game is easy to learn, yet tactically rich with many options that provide variety without bogging down the pace.
Players build their squadron from a variety of small craft ranging from nimble, yet fragile, light fighters all the way up to larger gunboats and corvettes.
With what appears to be a standalone ship building element I should be able to draw up stats for the Flash Gordon Fleets, although Ganesha will be producing two full sets of miniatures representing the two main adversaries, the mysterious and technologically advanced S’Sekai, and the loosely aligned Confederate Stars, made up of former earth colonies and a few independent alien homeworlds.
The Kickstarter campaign is already fully funded and has a planned shipping date of September 2017. You can back it Here.
