Description

Perfect for the novice, yet sophisticated enough for the veteran, Starion Tactics is a turn-based digital board game that delivers a deeply tactical and highly visual experience with fun and quick gameplay.

After assuming command of one of four human or alien factions vying for galactic dominance, immediately define your game’s scope. Play for minutes to hours across tens to hundreds of planets in single-player skirmish or multiplayer modes—it’s entirely up to you.

Leave the tedious, everyday tasks that take away from crafting and executing tactical strategies to your faction as you explore the galaxy. Explore the galaxy map and discover different planet types: some rich in resources, some barren and unfit for terraforming. Expand your empire by choosing which planets to invade, colonize, destroy or simply ignore. Exploit and terraform planets, acquiring resources to grow and strengthen your fleet, empowering you to exterminate enemy factions and rule the galaxy.
  • Fully customize each game by creating your own settings so that no two games are the same.
  • Assume the role of a faction leader and command one of four factions
  • Focus your efforts on crafting and executing your tactical strategy while your faction takes care of tedious, everyday tasks
  • Engage single-player skirmishes or up to 8 player multiplayer wars across 10 to 100 planets—you define your game’s scope
  • Use resources acquired from planets to build and strengthen your fleet
  • Construct ships that range from small, agile scouts to colossal battle cruisers
  • From improved mining to solar eruptions to labour strikes and beyond, implement cards and/or artifacts to make games more interesting with the element of chance

  1. More boring than an RTS
    by Yawaru, USA - Mar 15th 2016

    Starion Tactics is basically a board game version of a space RTS. If the battles were more interesting or the stages had more variety this game could be decent. As it is, the game is like Monopoly without Chance or Community Chest cards, you just keep shuffling around the board until someone wins or, more likely, everyone quits.

    The game looks decent, but it's a hollow facade. There's 3 different game modes that are all essentially the same with a few features added or removed. There is no story mode or campaign, if there's a difference between factions besides the color then I can't really tell. The resource management aspect is pretty shallow, you pay points to make ships, bigger ships cost more, but you can make whatever you want with enough money and points.

    The tutorial is pretty bare-bones too, 10 slides describing what various symbols on the UI mean, yet it still contains pretty much all the information you need to play the game, frankly that isn't good.

    The problem is there's a lot you can do with a video board game that this game doesn't do. The only value of various planets are the number of resources and the fact you can build new ships. The combat is a simple battle of numbers in normal mode, and random dice throws in board game mode. I couldn't even tell what happened in the dice battles because there's almost no feedback. It doesn't say HIT or MISS, and the dice aren't adequately explained in the minimal tutorial, so you're basically just waiting until the end to see who survives. The boards themselves are just a Chinese Checkers board with random planets, which gets very boring even within a single play through.

    I'd rate the game lower but it's not really a bad game, just lackluster and incomplete. With a few more features to spice up combat and different types of terrain, maybe a Campaign/Tutorial mode to give some context to the warring factions and it could be a decent game.
