The innovative game system features easy to learn rules, a unique set of maneuver cards for each spaceship, and two exclusive devices - the control panel and the rotating miniature base. You will be able to relive on your tabletop the exciting combat sequences from the TV series, just a few minutes after opening the box!
This Starter Set includes four beautiful ready-to-play miniatures: two Colonial Vipers Mk. II (including Apollo's Viper and his pilot card) and two Cylon Raiders, along with their special control panels, playing bases and maneuver decks. Also included are combat rulers, spaceship cards, pilot cards, talent and flaw cards, asteroid and planetoid templates, and everything else you need to play.
You can begin playing with the Quick Start Rules, to handle a simple dogfight where the goal is eliminating your opponents. Once you've learned the basics of flying and fighting with a spaceship, you can go to the Complete Rules and experiment many other scenarios, and then add further details to the game by including some or all the Optional Rules and using Optional Features, which add special elements to the game, from pilots' abilities to the use of asteroid fields and planetoids.
This Starter Set is a complete game, but it is also your starting point for the whole range of Battlestar Galactica - Starship Battles products. You can add more spaceships to your games with additional Starter Sets or Spaceship Packs.
