Description

Please note that this is a DTP (Desk Top Publishing) game designed on a desktop computer and all components, including the counters which will have to be cut and mounted, are printed on paper. These are designed by some very well-known designers and are a low cost alternative to today's professionally produced games. On rare occasions, some of these games are reproduced by other companies with higher quality components including die-cut counters but most of them are not. If you believe this game to have a professionally produced version, please contact us with your inquiry and we will help you to locate it if it does indeed exist.

The game Barnard's Star deals with the critical battle of the Naronian War. Players assume the roles of the Naronian and Terran leaders fighting the battle on the planetary surface. As the battle progresses, it is a race against time for both players. The number of beacons destroyed will determine the fate of the coming Terran counterattack fleet.

Barnard's Star contains all the science fiction chrome a player could want: interstellar movement, space battles, jump troops, planetary defenses, etc., etc. - all done with as little grit as possible. In this system, every unit has its own purpose - its own strengths and weaknesses - without lengthy special rules.
