The Joy of Unboxing: Core Space

Dear Buddha, please bring me a pony and a plastic rocket…

Salvage, trade, adapt and survive in Core Space by Battle Systems Ltd.

After reading this review by Michael Barnes on There Will Be Games, I knew I had to snag myself a copy of Core Space, and Battle Systems were kind enough to oblige. And what a wonderful sci-fi toybox it is! Only a few days have passed since it arrived and I’ve already painted and re-based the miniatures and I’m itching for my first game tomorrow night. This really looks like the skirmish-level sci-fi miniatures game I was waiting for—grittier than Star Wars, less gothic than W40K, and landing right smack-dab on that Firefly feel.

I don’t know if you can resist the gorgeous cardboard 3D terrain, but I can’t. It looks dauting, but once you get the hang of it, setup is surprisingly fast. And I love the way the expansion boxes add more figures and more terrain.

Keep an eye peeled for the rules summary and reference, coming very soon! I’ll be telling you a lot more about Core Space as I get to know it.
