Battlestar Galactica Starship Combat Rules

Harry Pratt’s Battlestar Galactica Starship Combat Rules are designed to recreate starship combat rules from the msot recent Galaxtica television shows.

I have to say that the fleet combat sequences in the series are absolutely spectacular, with those missles streaking through space and the ships burning up under multiple hits. Perhaps not the most scientifically valid, but spectacular nonetheless.

Full Thrust Starship Rules Wiki

I absolutely love the Full Thrust starship rules. If you can’t get enought of the rules, there’s now a Full Thrust Wiki.

Legends of Old Mars LotR LotOW Variant

Legends of Old Mars is a Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom variant of Games Workshop’s Lord of the Rings / Legends of the Old West game. I think that system is perfect for playing games involving John Carter, Tars Tarkas and the other denizens of Burrough’s Barsoom.

Warlords of The Wasteland

Marcus Reynolds offers Warriors of the Wasteland, a set of skirmish level science fiction rules that he devised when he became tired of the shenanigans of a certain miniatures gaming company who shall remain nameless but whose initials are GW.

Blasted Planets Science Fiction Skirmish Rules

Blasted Planets is Lance Runolfsson’s set of free science fiction skirmish rules to support his line of miniatures. Lance writes:

Blasted Planets Skirmish, is basically a set of house rules a few friends and I use to play games with my Sci-Fi figures. I am not trying to model a “Hard” Sci-Fi environment here. I’m borrowing as much from Horror and Fantasy as I am from Sci-Fi. I mean how serious can you be. When you have, Dog headed, Gator men chasing an Elephant guy around an Omni Field generating White rabbit? There is enough “real” world framework here that basic tactics work (most of the time). But enough of a fantastical element that you really can’t count on the idea that the Fin headed alien with the pin gun is going to nail the cave man with the rock every time.
