On the fringe of human space, raiding fleets prowl the star links for valuable cargo. Genetically engineered to survive their fierce jungle worlds, these disparate raiding tribes have unified into The Standing Nations in a bid for sovereignty.
At distant outpost Coyote Station, the threat comes not from human space, but from beyond. In search of food, the living ships of the Kirikin Swarm have arrived. The Overqueen broods deep in the bridge-womb of her command ship. She has seen great possibilities in the resources of this "human" space.
FLAGSHIP is an expandable card game. It includes everything two, three, or four players need to play. Flagship also includes deck construction rules for expert level commanders.
Each player selects a Flagship, Commander and fleet of escort ships. Ships rip into each other with Guided, Direct and Boarding attacks in an attempt to destroy the enemy fleet. The first player to destroy the enemy Flagship wins!
I really like this game. The artwork is very good, though someone commented on it being a bit dark, which I can see. It plays very quickly and is fairly easy to get into, even for non-gamers. It is basically a battle game, so those looking for something else should look elsewhere. On the other hand it is playable as is, but holds out the hope of expansions that could make the gameplay variety even more compeling. I am hoping that the game generates enough sales to allow the expansions to be produced, I think they will add alot to the game.
My sons & I like this game because it is fairly simple & quick, but there are many choices to make and there is uncertainty in the card draw.
The game never plays the same way twice and there is no perfect plan. While not a game for everyone,
we like the variety and the fact that GMT is coming out with 'stand alone' expansions for the series. How can one be bored ?
Dan Verssen, designer of GMT's superb 'Down in Flames' series of WWII combat games, has come up with another winner. The perfect wargame to entice your kids and spouse after they've seen 'Star Wars: Attack of the Clones,' but also a quick-playing blast to play with your wargame grognard buddies.
