Star Flickers

A modular sci-fi tabletop game of dexterity and space ships.

Welcome to Star Flickers!

In Star Flickers, you assume the role of the captain of a corvette-sized light transport called a Starflicker. You will use your ship to outfly and outgun other pilots, capture enemy plans, win dangerous races, and smuggle precious cargo.

Star Flickers is not a single game, but several that use the same components and use the same basic mechanic - flicking your spaceships around a modular spacescape! Players can modify every game mode in nearly infinite ways.

Rotate_ready_flick2.jpg All elements in the game are dexterity-based, but there is a great deal of strategy in the various game modes.

  1. In Capture the Plans (a Capture-the-Flag-style game), your activation order will matter, and each of your Starflicker ships is outfitted with a custom assortment of weaponry of your choice.
  2. In The Flicker Cup (the racing game), will you attempt a dangerous shortcut, or will you go the safe and slower route? Do you attempt to pick-up the game-changing power-ups to gain the upper hand? Or do you put the goal above all else?
  3. In Last Ship Flying (a deathmatch or team-deathmatch mode), you will push the limit of your Starflicker to take dangerous risky shots, hoping to score a kill and not receive reciprocal fire.
  4. In Twelve Parsecs (a mini-golf style game), you'll attempt to capture all the cargo in the least amount of turns. It's not as directly competitive as the other game modes, but anyone who loves putt-putt will feel at home.

Outmaneuver and devastate your opponents with the Electromag Cannon!

The game is fast, with little down-time between players and a great deal of anticipation when players are lining up their moves and their shots. Because the game requires players to take shots from different angles, players will be circling the play table like a game of billiards, constantly jockeying to make the best shot.

Coins and play mat not included.

Note there is no box included for this game. This was done to save cost (the cheapest box to fit the components would have added $10 to the price! Once all the components are punched out, I figure you can find a cheaper storage option at a hobby store).

Also check out the first two expansions: Mines and Munitions and Through the Storm!

Notes

  • This game contains a premium upgrade called UV Coating that makes the printed components more durable.
  • This game does not come in a box.
  • This game contains laser cut components. Laser cut items will have a slight amount of soot around the edges, which can easily be wiped off; and will have a campfire smell for about a week after you open them.
