Board Game Review: Star Trek Fleet Captains

Featured ImageIf you don't feel like reading this whole post, let's get straight to the point using puns: Star Trek Fleet Captains from WizKids Games and NECA sets its phasers to fun, and will make you want to rock out with your Spock out.

Still with me? Let’s La Forge ahead. (Sorry.)

In recent years, there’s been a serious uptick in the popularity and proliferation of entrants in the “serious” board game category. You know the kind: the rules are more complex than Monopoly or Risk, there are tons of tiny pieces and markers, and winning often takes serious strategy. Games like Arkham Horror and Wrath of Ashardalon can last hours, and while playing these games can be a lot of fun, sometimes the work that goes into simply understanding the rules diminishes the enjoyment that should’ve come from just playing the game.

And like all expensive, licensed games, here’s what a typical fan might expect out of Star Trek Fleet Captains: maybe it could be fun? It’ll probably scratch that Trek itch, and take up an afternoon with your friends.star trek fleet captains wizkid games 1 Board Game Review: Star Trek Fleet Captains But after playing through one session, a game like this could easily get shoved in some corner of the apartment—an $80 rectangle that would gather dust and your girlfriend’s scorn.

Fortunately, Fleet Captains will remain dust- and scorn-free. This game is incredibly fun and it might even be one of the best board games around—period. It’s incredibly well-balanced, exciting, and complex without being complicated—a rare feat in the “serious board game” genre.

Simply put, whether or not you actually like Star Trek, Fleet Captains is great.

WizKids Games drew on years of experience making their unique HeroClix sets, a long-running collectible miniatures game system that’s taken on licensed and original properties over the decade or so of its existence. To summarize: game pieces sit on circular “clix” bases, which contain stats for each piece’s different attributes. When the piece is affected by events in the game—often taking damage from another player’s attack—you’ll click the base to a new, usually lowered sets of stats. The pieces in Fleet Captains follow that basic principle, but with a few elegant twists that seem to be the best use of the clix concept yet.
