Armada focuses on the battles between starships. So if you're the kind of fan that has always longed to be in control of your own platoon of deep space war ships, this is the game for you. There are, of course, a number of miniatures involved but the game play is more than just have having the rarest miniatures.

Players are tasked with combining both miniatures with different card types to help build a strong fleet. Strategy can range from just focusing on ships to building strong crew for them. Really, it's all up to how the player wants to play the game.

Included cards detail the different ship types, the crews that will be manning them, the commanders who will be in charge, and of course, the weapons attached. All of these things come into play when establishing your fleet and if you don't spend at least some time thinking on all of them, you're likely to fail.

The game is currently in its preview stage and some more in depth details can be seen at Fantasy Flight Games.

This game is a dream for hardcore Star Wars fans. Over the dinner table, you can decide the fate of the galaxy. It's in your hands.
