Engage: Spaceship Combat
by Stuart T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/15/2020 15:43:43

Lots of content in the rules, much of which really could have done with cutting - for example, far too many actions to be able to actually use them all. Some really nice basic rules but then some odd ones too - ships move only 4-6" per turn and only turn 90 degrees a go, which is slow. That would be OK but then scenarios are only supposed to last ~8 turns which means an average map (4x4) is huge. Overall I think there is a decent game in here but it would require some work to get a lot out of it. Company seems defunct.

Engage: Spaceship Combat

Looks like a nice, playable game with lots of potential - but the movement and firing arcs are very simplistic and will require modification to be true to the Star Trek universe. And no one ever responded to my post on their forum, so you're on your own.

Engage: Spaceship Combat

At 94 pages, this PDF of spaceship warfare looks quite good.

This reminds me of Star Fleet Battles (SFB), with it's power allocation system. I believe someone said it reminded them of SFB with the numbers filed off.

A good number of pictures to show off the various starship models from various manufacturers. Also includes some themed fleet lists.

The Red Wyvern site does provide some downloads (even a printer friendly ship sheet!).

I would like to give it 5 stars, but the PDF is ink intensive. A printer friendly version would have been good. At £6.59, it's fairly good, and should remind you of SFB.

Worth a look at.

Hi Stephen, Thanks for your review, we do now have a Tablet/Printer friendly version that comes with all electronic copies of Engage! It should dramatically cut down on ink costs (only text boxes, text and the bare essential images). It comes as a PDF that has also been designed for use on a tablet (small files size) with links from the contents page and a home button on each page to take you back to the contents for quick and easy use. Cheers, Red Wyvern Games Team.
