This game is based on the Starcraft computer game. As such, it does a great job of modeling the concepts and gameplay of Starcraft in a tabletop environment. It uses a combination of game tiles, figurines, cards, and cardboard chits to represent the Starcraft game.

If you don't have an experienced player to guide you, plan on taking a whole day to learn this game. Once everyone knows the game, plan on 2-3 hours per game.

The game is of quality construction - almost all the Starcraft units are represented with plastic figures, along with cardboard punch-outs representing things like planets and buildings, and finally sets of cards that represent technology, random events, and unit combat power.

The basic board consists of laying down 2 planets per player, with a starting base on 1 planet. Planets are connected, but require a transport to move units between. Planets have areas on them, each area either has crystal, Vespene gas, or conquest points players struggle to control. You will build, move, research, and battle in order to achieve victory later in the game.

Though it takes time and a lot of reading, the rules are logical and consistent, so once you start understanding the phases of a turn and the subtleties of the rules, you begin to appreciate the amount of strategy available - just like in the computer game. You can try to rush, expand, build mass air, turtle up. A lot of the computer game concepts translate quite well into the board game.

Even the real-time nature of the game is modeled in the game. Players take turn laying down "order" tokens on planets. Nobody knows what each others orders are, but the orders on a planet stack up, and during the execution phase, the orders are revealed one at a time.

This is one of the best strategy board games I played. Unlike Risk, battles are not resolved by dice throws, hence there is no chance involved at combat time. Instead it takes a card game approach, you resolve the battle by playing the cards in hour hand. The element of chance is still there, but it occurs earlier, when you draw the cards, so at combat time you already know what you are holding.
It takes about two hours to learn by reading the book, and about 45 minutes to explain the rules properly to someone else. A game takes about 3 hours. I highly recommend it to any hardcore strategy gamer or Starcraft nut, but also to casual strategy gamers, if you don't mind feeling a little geeky moving little plastic figures around :) .
The only problem is the plastic figures, which are very detailed, are a little fragile (some of them came broken, or with parts missing). I would have liked them sturdier, even at the expense of some detail.

It's what you'd better be if you're going to play this. It comes complete with a 48pg. full color instruction book, which you will need and may in fact need to read more than once, especially if you're new to this style of board game. If you have trouble sitting through the short game of "Monopoly" this isn't for you. I'd be more willing to put it on a level with "Risk" as far as the amount of time you invest in it and the number of pieces, but there are no dice, and it takes a little getting accustomed to. Not a game you want to get the kid (or adult) with a short attention span). As long as you're willing to put the time and love into it, it's worth it. Just remember, it's not the PC game either fanboys but when the power's out and you need your "Starcraft" fix it's got enough friendly faces to get rid of the shakes. As far as my durability score goes, all of the unit pieces are made of a rubbery plastic, but as you may know a number of the units are flying creatures and in an attempt to be super cool looking, these units are mounted on a clear acrylic base. It does look super cool, however about seven (not really a lot considering there are 180 unit pieces) came to me snapped off of their pedestals. I was a bit disappointed, but with some super glue and a bit of patient matching (it's not just a board game it's also a puzzle. Bonus!) you can hardly tell now.

I have been playing the PC game since Brood War came out in 98' and have been enjoying the series ever since. The board game is a very good translation from computer to a tactile gaming experience, but it has it's new twists as well.

First, the rules themselves are simple enough. Plan and lay orders, execute orders, battle, regroup, loose/gain territory and resources. The complexity comes in the different options and the many ways the truck load of cardboard and plastic bits interact with the game. Half the rule book is explaining the purpose of each component, card and unit, rather than the actual intricacies of the rules.

So, how does it measure up to the PC game? Well first off, you can pretty much use the same unit tactics and technology as in the PC game. You can tech up to Carriers with increased Interceptor Capacity, or rush with a swarm of Zerglings. Most of the upgrades are there, and base and economic management are just as important as a good group of units. While abstracted, the game plays out much like the PC game in many respects.

The differences lay in two major mechanics. The order system, and the capture-and-hold Conquest Points win conditions. I believe the order mechanic does a really nice job in simulating player actions or "clicks" in the PC game. However, a good part of the games strategy lies in the placement of orders such as blocking orders, order timing, placement, and which orders you choose (you only get 4 a turn).
Second, the Conquest Point system turns the game into more of a capture and hold style of game, rather than a total, all out slug fest. This has some draw backs (such as the feeling of satisfaction as you completely destroy your opponent), but it also adds a bit more long term strategy.
