Last night I was finally able to crack into the board game I received for Christmas.
There are Tribbles!
The premise is that Q gathers each captain from each series on a holodeck, and faces us against each other to determine a winner. The armies are counted in flagships and shuttle craft. Territories are planets, continents are sectors. There is a neutral zone barrier between United Federation of Planets and romulan space. There’s a set of crew cards from each series that gives you a handful of buffs if you pay an associated cost. And a whole deck of “How Q screws with you this turn” cards.
4 person game went slow as we learned the rules and differences, and explaining it to someone who never played ANY risk game before, but completed in about 3 hours.
It was a blast.
