A Quick Four Player Space Challenge
February 02, 1999

If you love or hate Battlestar Galactica, it probably won't affect what you think of this game very much. I get the feeling that the Battlestar name was simply tacked onto an already existing game.

GOAL: you are one of four newly trained Viper (fighter) pilots on a training mission. A disabled enemy Cylon fighter is drifting in the middle of the board. You try to be the first player to tow it back to your mother ship.

WEAPONS: you have two weapons systems:

  1. Torpedo which can hit the other players and send them back to their ship.

  2. Force field which allows you to force a single opposing player to land on any nearby moon

DEFENSE: you can protect yourself by using your shield cards, of which you only have three.

The ENJOYMENT of the game comes from knowing when to use, and when to save, your weapon and shield cards. Unlike many games, once you use them they are gone. Use them too quickly, and you have nothing left. The other players will push you around easily. Save them for too long, and the others will be long gone with the enemy fighter.
