|Man where to start as far as why I love Battlestations. There aren't many games out there that mix being on a spaceship with space combat with just a splash of roleplaying with that board game feel. Battlestations somehow comes off doing all of this and is light and fun enough that I keep coming back for more! If you can grab the expansions also, because they add SO much more to the core game. You don't need them, but they also show how flexible this game is even if you decide to create your own "house rules!"

|Ambitious boardgame/RPG hybrid where you mix the action in space with the actions of your characters on board your ship. Boarding parties, missile, scans, daring piloting moves, and lethal hand-to-hand combat....all in the name of science!
Endless amount of potential in this box. Can be as much either RPG or boardgame as you wish it to be, and that's brilliant.
