StarCraft: The Board Game pits 2-6 players against each other in a desperate struggle for control of the galaxy. Based on the hit Blizzard computer game, StarCraft: The Board Game puts players in control of one of three unique races to battle across multiple worlds, forge alliances, collect resources, and build armies in an attempt to conquer the known galaxy.
In StarCraft: The Board Game, players take control of high-tech armies and battle for dominance in an ever-changing galaxy. Take command of your favorite race and set out to conquer! *Players* Two to six players each take the role of an important leader from the StarCraft universe - Jim Raynor, Arcturus Mengsk, Judicator Aldaris, Executor Tassadar, Sarah Kerrigan, or the Overmind - and take command of powerful armies. With three distinct races, each with two unique factions, each game of StarCraft: The Board Game will be different.

At the beginning of the game, players assemble a galaxy of interconnected planets, each with regions containing resources such as valuable minerals, vespene gas, and conquest points. Planets are connected by both normal and z-axis navigation routes, representing the three-dimensional nature of space. By strategic placement of valuable worlds and navigation routes, players can create strongholds for themselves or connect their worlds to planets ripe for conquest. Once the galaxy has been assembled, players place their initial bases and units and the conflict can begin!
