    What is Battlestations?

    "Deep Ones in Deep Space" has arrived!

    Adventure between the starry arms of the galaxy, where H.P. Lovecraft's dark visions can be seen in shadows.

    Battlestations is a pulp sci fi adventure boardgame. Ongoing adventures feature simultaneous ship-to-ship and boarding combat in space. Players work together as a starship crew aboard a ship of their own design facing referee-controlled forces. You’ll track the heroes' positions on the starship layouts and the starships’ positions on the space map. The action in Battlestations is character driven. If you want the ship to turn, speed up, or launch a missile or blast the enemy ship, a hero has to take an action to make it so.

    Take action to defeat enemy warships, resolve alien encounters or adventure through uncharted astral phenomena.

    With the expanding Battlestations universe, there's always a new adventure in the stars!

    Small Craft Warning: Lifeboat just released!

    Lifeboat is a devious card game of underhanded back stabbing and secret support aboard a lifeboat adrift at sea. The passengers must cooperate to survive, but each has their own agenda!

    Battlestations is YouTubed!

    Some Brazillian humans have taped the adventures of the zoallan cruiser, the Aerosol Bomber and put them on the interweb for your enjoyment. NOTE: Most episodes are in Portuguese, with some English subtitling.
    The unique intros to every episode are classic homages, and the Battlestations action is clear in any language: hull checks are blown on both sides of the war, and clones will be activated!
