What is Forbidden Stars about?
The shifting Warp Storms that surround the long lost Herakon Cluster have finally abated, leaving the ancient treasures and planets within this sector open to the rest of the galaxy. Now, the great factions of the galaxy mobilize their fleets and race to establish a foothold. The reward for successful domination surpasses all other concerns, and the price for conquering this sector will be paid in lives.
Forbidden Stars is a 2-4 player game, challenging players to take command of one of four mighty fighting forces:
The Ultramarines chapter of Space Marines
The Eldar of Craftworld Iyanden
The Evil Sunz Ork clan
The World Eaters Warband of the Chaos Space Marines
Each faction offers unique armies and play styles and players need to build massive armies and command them in unending war to beat their enemies and claim their objective tokens. Forbidden Stars features three phases in each round. These are:
The Planning Phase
The Operation Phase
The Refresh Phase.
Players need to dominate, strategize, deploy and advance to win this highly strategic game.
