Description

The game features a modular gameboard consisting of up to twelve (depending on the number of players) specific planets in the StarCraft universe. Players control the familiar terran, protoss, or zerg air and ground units in a bid for domination of these nine worlds. A diceless, card driven combat system allows players to modify and upgrade their faction with a wealth of powerful technologies.

Most of the units are described with detailed miniature pieces. Worker units (SCV, probe, drone) and transport units (dropship, shuttle, overlord) are represented by tokens. Orders are issued with tokens representing different orders, namely Combat Tokens, Research Tokens and Production Tokens. When an order is given, cards called Event Cards, Combat Cards and Upgrade Cards are used to judge the outcomes. The cards are divided on the basis of tiers. Factors such as Splash damage are also featured.
