Star Trek Board Games

Postby patrickivan » Fri Dec 22, 2017 12:51 am

Hey

Anyone here play Star Trek Starship Tactical Combat Simulator?

I was just looking through my boxed set, lamenting over old games and not having anyone who wants to play, what is a seriously complex and fun turn based game.

Amazed how decent condition all the books have remained in. The box is a little rough. I even have an old poster of Troi in it, that I got in the old Starlog mags.

You do know that it has been computerized?

neat!
I haven't played ST:STCS in a long time,
I recommend Lead Adventure.de -> Other Tabletop -> Trek Games
or Boardgamegeek etc for folks who're more active players.

I'm playing Modiphius Trek and ST:AW these days,
that and ST:Fleet Captains, ST:heroclix,
G.O.B.S. trek, GURPS-trek, etc.

I haven't played FASATrek or ADB's Starline Trek in quite a while :lol:

-----
There's also thanks to hangouts etc,
the possibility of real-time correspondence gaming.
I know folks like USO are looking into that for stuff,
as are RedCross, Freethinkers Without Borders and VA/RVASL stuff,
so those are opportunities for gaming as well.

I did not know that...

You got a link you can throw up here?

Granted, it's the interactive gaming with real people in the same room that I like. I still play games like Zombies, but no one is interested in ST... :evil:

Did you guys have the metal miniatures as well?

I still have Regula 1, and a couple other ones. Love the heft to them.

I don't. I have however seen same at a Con. It is like the version where you play the bridge crew, except that the paper boards are on the computer and it handles the crunch work. So the social aspect is not lost.

Found it- at least I suppose the guy who originally had the PC version. Apparently CBS told him to remove it, a few years ago, so no links anymore.

It would be neat to have.

Looks like there are links through Trek Core.

And I'm getting a message that prompts me to abort due to protection measures. Oh well.
