Description Edit | History

Galactic Strike Force is a cooperative, deck-building game in which two to six players each take control of a ship and a crew in defense of the galaxy! Dangerous opposition forces threaten to overrun the entire galaxy, and the players must not only build up their ships, but also work together tactically to stop them!

However, this Strike Force is not made up of stalwart defenders, space cops or Volnethian Guardians. In Galactic Strike Force, you play as scoundrels — members of the galactic underworld! Smugglers, space pirates, gun runners, bounty hunters, and information brokers make up the ranks of the Strike Force which has come together to defend the galaxy!

Galactic Strike Force takes about an hour to play and all of the players are engaged throughout the entire game. Rather than having individual turns, each player is constantly acting through the phases of the game, and each ship is in constant peril! As the game progresses, players travel from sector to sector, purchasing powerful tech upgrades for their ships and boosts to help them in battle. Then, after installing the techs, the Strike Force ships engage the opposition ships in battle throughout the galaxy!

4 Galactic Strike Force Reference Sheet
A handy 2 page reference sheet - one page with a broad sweep of the basic turn phases, the other page with details of general game concepts. I've tailored this for new players, and to keep my wife from getting totally frustrated during our defense of the galaxy!

7 GSF Turn Tracker Card
The turn track on the back of the rulebook was not quite as useful as it needs to be. I came up with this so you can place the TRIBA standee on it and and know exactly which phase or sub-phase you are currently in and when you can play Boosts. Hope people find it helpful.
