Starcraft is based on the setting of the videogame with...

Big Box.  No, BIG box.  And big play.

Thanks for putting this together. I would love to give this game a shot or at least have a reskinned version see the light of day.

EDIT: I forgot that Forbidden Stars was a reimplementation! Not sure how similar they are, and now that's largely gone too. Maybe the design is cursed.

I dig a lot of the stuff from this era of FFG's catalog. Big, ambitious games like this just don't seem to be of interest to publishers these days. I can think of plenty of reasons as to why, but that's not really relevant to Starcraft.

I have this and the expansion and have played it once but refuse to let it go. Prime toad, not a cold war like TI, great central action mechanism. As mentioned above, this is a great era for FFG games imho despite a lot of criticism about game length and size at the time.

I got no problem with long games if it’s a good game.

I'm squarely in the Forbidden Stars isn't quite as good as StarCraft camp. It's still pretty darn good though, and I feel like it is significantly easier to teach.
