WARRIORS OF THE DARK STAR - The Age of the Neutron Wars
This vintage game is VERY RARE and in Excellent Condition.
A Taurus Science Fiction Game/Galaxy Foundation Games
This is a tactical single ship to ship combat war game that takes place in outer space for those you who do not already know.
This was the first in a series of tactical space combat games linked to Galaxy Foundation Games' strategic Battle for Andromeda: Conflict for a Trillion Suns! series. Further games using the same rules were Dual of the Sun Slayers, Vengeance Crusaders vs. The Monads, and they probably never published Plunderers of the Planets.
Galaxy-Foundation Games licensed Taurus Games to produce the initial print run of the game (6,000 copies, according to a later GFG catalog). Whether GFG produced any further copies is unknown; at least one later game in the series included a completely rewritten Warriors of the Dark Star rulebook, but no copy of the original game with that rulebook has been seen.
This game includes:
A 24-page rulebook, with a familiar-looking ship (not appearing in the game) in the foreground.
A single-piece map.
A sheet of "power grids" to be cut apart.
6 laminated ship record sheets.
A page explaining the ship record sheets.
A sheet which is partly an advertisement and partly a display of the various ship icons used in the Andromeda game series. Some of these icons are meant to be mounted and cut out, then used in this game as counters on the map - no die-cut counters were provided originally which has since been confirmed.
