Starmada X Rulebook

ZIP File

Starmadais a simple (but not simplistic) board game of starship combat, in which players square off in a general attempt to blast each other's fleets into just so much space junk.

While the universe of the Imperial Starmada and its major adversaries is fully detailed in the rulebook, Starmada is much more than just another game, tied down to its own background. Instead, Starmada can be played in just about any science fiction setting you can imagine. There are dozens of optional rules, exotic special equipment items, and menacing weapons that can be used or discarded at your discretion, to create the type of game you want to play!

Starmada Xis the latest and greatest version of the Universal Game of Starship Combat. This rulebook includes:

  • The Starmada X rules
  • Appendix A: Starship Construction
  • Appendix B: Weapon Abilities
  • Appendix C: Special Equipment
  • Appendix D: Vector Movement
  • Appendix E: Movement Options
  • Appendix F: Fighter Options
  • Appendix G: Combat Options
  • Appendix H: Scenario Options
  • The Imperial Starmada history and ship designs
  • The Arcturan Federation history and ship designs
  • BONUS: The original Starmada rules from 1994

Note: This product is identical to Starmada X: Brigade (MJG-0112) with the exception of the background material and starship designs.

One of the most fun miniature games I've ever had the pleasure to play. Not only are the rules solid and strategic without bogging down play, but the ship construction and plethora of optional rules give the players power to create just about anything [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
