Deep Space D-6: Armada is the standalone multiplayer sequel for Deep Space D-6.
In the far reaches of the galaxy, a local cluster of planets has been overrun by a hostile regime known as The Federation. Players take command of starships and work together to complete missions while defending the system from enemy fleets.
Each player starts the game with their own starship with unique capabilities and basic crew. As you gain credits from completing missions, you'll be able to upgrade your ship and hire advanced Heroic crew members. Your crew are your dice and players roll them, then assign them to their ship's stations in order to perform actions during combat or to complete missions.
Ship to ship combat in Armada requires managing your crew and ship stations. As your ship is damaged, your stations become disabled and require repair actions by engineers. Your crew is also susceptible to injury and you'll use medic actions to revive them. Ships may be customized to your individual playstyle, whether you prefer to deal direct damage, or support teammates by disabling enemy shields and stations.
Each round is comprised of the following phases:
1) Planning: Players will travel to nearby planets. Players can also repair and upgrade their ships or hire new crew members during this time.
2) Encounter: Players battle enemy fleets or resolve missions (together or alone).
3) Resolution: Hazard effects and event cards are resolved. Enemy reinforcements also appear at this time.
Once players have obtained enough Data tokens, a final encounter is revealed. If they can beat this final encounter, the players will win the game. What challenge will face our Captains? And who is responsible for all the terror?
DSD6: Armada takes the gameplay of Deep Space D-6 and enhances it with ship upgrades, dice mitigation, missions, and co-operative gameplay- all while keeping the game's signature minimalist style.
DSD6: Armada is not an expansion and does not need the original Deep Space D-6.
