Gameday First Play – Galaxy Defenders
Galaxy Defenders defending the Galaxy…
..is what you’re supposed to do.
Galaxy Defenders is a sci-fi cooperative, tactical battle game in which 1-5 players fight together against an oncoming alien menace. Each player takes control of one or more agents with unique powers to defend the planet from the alien invasion. Game play revolves around a tactical combat system, using custom ten-sided dice. Each player sequentially plays his Agent turn and then one Aliens turn. Players carry out their turns [agent and aliens] in clockwise order until the last player finishes his Aliens turn. Once done, the game passes to the Event phase that will bring the players to the next round.
So this is one of those games where you pick a character and try to complete a goal against game controlled enemies.
It’s nice, pretty and clever be we got destroyed so quickly I barely had enough to form an opinion.
You have a move, action and attack action and you use various combinations of these to do stuff which is cool in a D&D way. Also, your gun jams more often than not.
So I’ll play it again but I really have very little to say about it.
