Is this the coolest space skirmish game ever? Yes. Yes it is. As a retail store we backed Battle System for the excellent cardboard terrain, and the amazing sculpts - both of which were worth the price of admission alone.
But then the game is so evocative of exactly what you want a sci-fi skirmish game to be - filing the void of Space Hulk and Space Crusade, and blasting the opposition out of an airlock. The only downside? fitting all those amazing components back in the box!
Is it a miniatures game? is it a boardgame? Who cares - just play it
Core Space is a science fiction miniatures board game for 1-6 players. Each player takes control of a band of Traders trying to make a living in a dangerous galaxy, all the while hunted by the Purge, a semi-sentient race of humanoid machines whose sole task is to harvest worlds. It can be played competitively or co-operatively, and missions can be linked with a detailed campaign system.
