Clans

is a hidden unit board game of strategy and cunning. It is a new exclusive release from Large Visible Machine and legendary designer Lew Pulsipher (Britannia, Dragon Rage, Sea Kings).

Take your starship fleet into battle and manoeuvre your way to victory in this unique hidden unit board game of strategy and cunning designed by industry veteran Lew Pulsipher.

Doomstar is a board game for two players where you have to devise a plan and use your cunning to locate your opponent's Command Ship and destroy it to win the game. The identity of a player's ship is visible to him but not to his opponent and different pieces have different capabilities and movement rules which creates a tense and deeply tactical affair.



Main features

  • Learn the game by battlling four different opponents in the single-player campaign
  • Play against friends or online opponents with fully asynchronous online multiplayer
  • Multiple ship types with unique abilities and tactics
  • Customise your fleet and board for even greater gameplay variety
  • Exclusive five-song soundtrack from space composer Simon Heath
  • Steam Achievements and Trading Cards
  • The world's greatest space duck.

history

Legendary board game designer Lew Pulsipher (Britannia, Dragon Rage, Sea Kings) started working on Doomstar more than 30 years ago but it is not until now the game is finally released as a digital exclusive. The game was initially conceived as a more fluid and less hierarchical version of L’Attaque/Stratego. The introduction of specialised units and unique mechanics result in strategically varied and much shorter game sessions than the original Stratego.

The digital version adds customisable fleets and board designs as well as a single-player campaign where players can learn how to play the game and master the different strategies against the computer.
