Writing a Sci-fi Tabletop Wargame – Part 12

It is 400 years since man first set foot on the moon, and 300 since man found out the Galaxy is a dangerous place….

As with everything I would like this to be community driven, so if you see any typo’s or think paragraphs need rephrasing or moving then please let me know in the form at the end of this article.

Last Weeks Poll Results for Orders

Here are the results from last weeks polls.

Based on these results, the following wording will be added to our living rules:



All infantry moves at a BASE MOVEMENT RATE (BMR) of 5” and all vehicles move at a BMR of 8”, however depending on the faction or the type of unit this can vary. Whatever a unit’s movement is will be shown under that unit’s movement statistic on their FACTION SHEET.


Once a unit receives a move order, that unit can make a move up to its maximum move distance. Remember that a unit can be ordered up to twice per turn and both orders can be move orders.

As well as the above, I’ve written up an introduction for the game along with some others bits and bobs.


Continuing our polls around movement, we need to take into account aerial and space units. For example, in a ground combat theatre where infantry and vehicles are involved and moving at 5″ and 8″ respectively, what should the movement be of an aircraft? Also if the theatre only involved Aircraft what should their movement be then? How about in Space, what should Spaceship movement rates be?
