ISS Vanguard is a 1-4 player co-operative, campaign Board Game. It will bring players right into epic Sci-Fi adventure, as they will play as 4 sections (security, recon, science, engineering) onboard the first human ship with the possibility to reach outer space.
Campaign will introduce the unique story written by Krzysztof Piskorski (Tainted Grail) full of hard player choices, twists and branching storylines.
Gameplay is divided into 2 main stages: Ship phase and landing on planets.
During the Ship phase, players will manage their ship (binder with printed sleeves), where every section will have to make gameplay decisions.
Then, you will prepare your crew for landing on the next planet, in search of answers to humanity’s biggest questions. Together you will pick lander and customize it with modules, then each section will choose a crew member to take on a mission ( more experienced crew members will have better ranks ), deck-build skills deck, take equipment and choose dices for his character.
The game will come with over 100 different Crew members, each with unique characteristics.
During all phases of the games players will be directed to Log-book, consisting story encounters, often written in the form of action-packed dialogues between the characters.
Solo, 2 Players, 3 Players, 4 Players

It's still early yet, but I'm not enjoying it much. There just isn't very much there in terms of a real fun gaming experience. Although there are ways to mitigate the randomness, it's still way too random for my tastes. And I really enjoy chucking dice. The ship exploration phase is interesting, but planet exploration? Interesting puzzles, I suppose but I'm not big on puzzles, per se. I was expecting WAY more in the way of interesting activities to perform. But it's just dice management. I have played about 20 hours or so, and currently have the game saved at planetary exploration. I have no real desire to break it out and continue.
After two plays, two players two handed we are enjoying it very much. My Wife is Star Treek fan and the game feels a lot like it.
