BATTLE FOR ANDROMEDA - Conflict for a Trillion Suns!
Strategy based game from 1976 and VERY RARE in any condition.
Game has been proofed and is complete and in plastic zipped bag. Everything is in very good condition.
According to GAMEBOARD GEEK:
"According to a Galaxy-Foundation Games catalog, they licensed Taurus to produce an initial print run of 6,000 copies of this game. It is not known if GFG did any further print runs.
There were further games in GFG's strategic series: Deliverance From Beyond the Stars, The Xenon Empire's Star Wars: Crusade Against the War-Lords, and The Collodian Conspiracy: Science Against Chaos Unleashed. These games used Andromeda Foundation Official Battle Manual, which is a slightly changed version of the Battle for Andromeda rules, as the series rulebook.
There was a companion tactical series of games beginning with Warriors of the Dark Star: The Age of the Neutron Wars."
