A Billion Suns is a tabletop wargame of spaceship combat, coming from Osprey Wargames in September 2020, which places you in the admiral’s chair of a massive fleet of interstellar warships. It allows you to fight out cinematic space battles with spaceship miniatures in any scale and across the full gamut of sci-fi tropes.

At the heart of the game is the Admiral’s Helm, which lies at the centre of a tense and interactive command dice system. The command dice act as a sort of bluffing mini-game throughout the turn. The game also feature an innovative combat resolution system to model the massive range of weapon scales.

Featuring innovative “RTS” style mechanics, and a host of different missions for players to tackle, it allow players to create and customise their fleets to fit their chosen science-fiction setting. Whether you want to fight space battles in Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, The Expanse, Babylon 5… everything is be supported and full of flavour.

The game supports spaceship miniatures of any scale and does not requires any specific basing for those miniatures; players will be able to use their existing collections or choose miniatures from any manufacturer.

The game is designed and written by Mike Hutchinson, the author of Gaslands, and will be published as part of the Osprey Wargames “blue book” series in 2020.
