Games From the Basement - Starfire (Spaceship Combat Game)
I really, really wanted to get into Starfleet Battles back in the day. There were just a few problems with it that I saw.
One - It looked really rules heavy.
Two - It seemed to have an endless supply of supplements.
Three - No one in my game group had any interest in playing it.
My solution? Starfire, from Task Force Games. One box seemed to cover everything from Introductory to Immediate, it was cheaper than Star Fleet Battles and possibly, just possibly, someone in my gaming group would play it with me.
That never happened, as I punched out (2) two, yes, (2) two starship counters. Oh, and the dice included are one of the smallest pairs of D6s I've ever seen ;)
