Battlestar Galactica: Starship Battles

2 1

The Cylons were created by Man. They evolved. They rebelled.

After 4,571 days, the Cylon War ended with a sudden armistice. Peace lasted 40 years. But now the Cylons are back, as fierce and combative as ever. They want to exterminate what remains of Mankind. And they have a plan.

The Twelve Colonies are wasted and in ruins. But the Colonial Fleet is there, to face Cylon spaceships and protect what it is left of Mankind.

Welcome to Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles, the new miniature board game created by Ares Games, launching at the end of 2018.

In Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles, players take control of Colonial and Cylon spaceships and face each other in furious dogfights and daring missions, piloting beautiful pre-assembled and pre-painted miniatures, faithfully representing the spaceships from both the Re-imagined and Classic versions of the shows.

Designed by Andrea Angiolino (Wings of Glory, Sails of Glory) and Andrea Mainini (Sails of Glory), the game uses a unique game system, inspired by its “glorious” predecessors, but at the same time featuring many new features, to represent the cinematic, yet realistic space battles of the show.

The game will cover both the classic series and the reimagined one that I would assume most people are familiar with. You can see some of the prototype ships above but have no fear as the actual game will feature pre-painted and pre-assembled miniatures for you to take to deep space with.

They are looking to try and emulate the unique way that the ships fight in the TV show and hopefully bring that to the tabletop. We hope to learn more about it at Gen Con!

Created by the same designers of the popular “Wings of Glory” and “Sails of Glory” game systems (Andrea Angiolino and Andrea Mainini), the Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles game will be first presented to the public at Gen Con 2018 (August 2-5, Indianapolis).

Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles will feature ready to play, painted and assembled miniatures, with a special base to support its unique game mechanics. Players will take control of one or more Colonial and Cylon ships, and face each other in furious dogfights and many other different kinds of missions.

The game will feature innovative mechanics allowing players to simulate space combat using simple and intuitive rules to imitate the unique dynamics of the battles in the TV show.

The “Battlestar Galactica” license agreement with Universal Brand Development includes both the classic series, created by Glen A. Larson in the late ‘70s, and the re-imagined series developed by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick which aired until 2010.
