In Space, no one can hear you scream.
But the fires on your ship can be seen from 10,000 miles away . . . .
Babylon 5 Wars is a hex-based starship combat game set in the Babylon 5 universe. For me, no game, since Star Fleet Battles, has captured the thrill of a tactical board game with the appeal and fascination of great science fiction series. B5W, is one of the best tactical combat games I've ever played, and given the current 'life' and future of Star Fleet Battles, perhaps the best space game available.
In it, different factions, each with its own unique technology and play style, fight for control of the universe (or at least the corner of the map they are in).
Fast paced, and with good flowing rules, the second edition of B5W has added much to the game without slowing it down or adding unnecessary complexity to the rules.
