You need the original Starcraft board game. The brood war expansion is optional. Some printing might be required to play the game


The objective is to make a solitaire version of of the game. The general idea is that the players try to keep the control of a galaxy made of 3 planets while invaders controlled by an artificial intelligence are constantly invading the galaxy. Will you be able to hold until the end draws near!?


The variant is currently under development. Since a lot of people seem interested by this variant, this page will be used to sumarise the development of the variant and host the files.

January 19th, 2012: I made another play test by trying a more powerful AI and the game balance seems to work well. So you could consider this as almost the final version of the rules. I'll have to make the combat card tables, gather feedback, try to make other test and It should be ready to launch. If you ever make some test, I want your comments.

You can also use this table for combat resolution which was made by Victor Kostin if you do not like my combat cards. The file can be found on Board Game Geek:
