Jump in your cockpit and blast off into orbit to fight off a swarm of enemy fighters. That's where you find yourself in Interceptor, a classic miniatures game. Well, FASA is bringing us a new version of the game. You can head over to Kickstarter and check it out.
From the campaign:
Interceptor is a game of space fighter combat. Pitting fighter against fighter, this is combat to control the local space around any important installation, location, or convoy. Set in FASA's new Aetherstream universe, five major factions and countless others vie for control and power. ...
In FASA's 40 year history, we have published many combat games. Interceptor takes from the best of them to create a fast system that's fun and easy to play. Battles between 6 to 12 fighters per side should be resolved in an hour.
The basic game contains 20 fighters, 2 hex maps, 2 maneuver templates, and plenty of dice. Fighter cards and pilot cards keep track of stats and condition. It’s all here, ready for you to play right out of the box. The photos below show prototypes and painted models; the models in the box are unpainted and will be manufactured in their house colors.
Gameplay is designed to be fast. Fighters are expendable and it will be a rare game where even the victor doesn't lose some part of their force. Here are a couple of videos and links showing how to play and some of our playtest sessions.
The campaign's up and over its funding goal with 30 days left to go.
