What is ISS Vanguard about?

ISS Vanguard is a co-op campaign board game for 1-4 players. On board the ship ISS Vanguard, players control four asymmetric sections (security, recon, science, engineering). You land on planets and discover their secrets, and then you manage your ship in between missions, where you recruit crew members, research materials, make new landers and ship modules. There are a lot of epic stories, tough gameplay decisions, and some serious consequences of your decisions

How to Play

The game starts off with players taking on the roles of crew members aboard the ISS Vanguard spaceship, which is on a mission to explore the depths of space. Each player has their own unique abilities and responsibilities, making teamwork crucial for success.

What I found most interesting about the gameplay was the use of a narrative-driven system. This means that as you play, the story unfolds and presents new challenges and choices for the players. It’s like being in your very own sci-fi movie!

The game mechanics are well thought out and add to the overall immersive experience. From managing resources to making tough decisions under pressure, every aspect of the game feels realistic and keeps you on your toes.

One thing that sets ISS Vanguard apart from other board games is its replayability. With multiple story paths, different character combinations, and a modular board, each playthrough can be unique and offer new challenges.

Who Can Play

As for the type of audience who might enjoy this game, I would say it appeals to both experienced gamers and casual players. The cooperative aspect makes it a great choice for game night with friends, but the depth and complexity of the gameplay also make it satisfying for more serious players.

What Makes It Fun

But what truly makes ISS Vanguard fun is the sense of adventure and camaraderie it creates. As you work together to overcome challenges and explore the unknown, you feel like a real space crew.
