Spartan Games has been publishing the Firestorm Armada game for 8 years now, and as they gear up for the biggest expansion to the game, they have announced a board game. Firestorm: Strike Force is a deck building game where you are trying to obliterate your opponents in space. Each player starts with the same starting deck, and these cards let you do things like put ships on the board, attack with your ships, move your ships, and to buy upgraded cards. These cards can come from the advanced deck, mission deck, or your own personal faction deck, each giving you better abilities and more options.
Also of note is that is first set is just a starter set with two factions in it, which they plan to expand will more factions, campaign and more. Plus rules are included to put multiple games together to expand the player count and board size to epic proportions.
Look for this game on store shelves in September, and you can read more about the game on Spartan Games website.
