    Welcome to a galaxy of adventure!

    In the frozen heart of space lies a fantastic galaxy of planets populated by space-faring factions called Planeteers, who wage a never-ending battle of Rayguns and Rocketships. Some seek action like the brash Astro-Rangers, others desire riches like the fearsome Star Pirates. Some planeteers will to conquer like the horrible alien Blaarg or hunger for honor like the reptilian Zard. Which Planeteers will be the master of the galaxy? That's up to you!

    Rayguns and Rocketships is an action strategy game inspired by the sci-fi classics of the pulp era. The game features fast-paced strategy, pulse-pounding action and over 32 original miniatures!

    Players starts by selecting a Planeteer faction consisting of a rocketship miniature, a rocketship interior map, a crew of six Planeteers miniatures, a captain miniature, a two-sided captain card and a deck of maneuver cards unique to each Planeteer faction. Player place their crew on their rocketship map - in the cockpit, manning the control systems or manning a raygun - each gives advantages in flight and combat.

    Play is divided into three phases: rocketship movement, rocketship combat, crew movement and combat. Players plot their Rocketship's course using maneuver cards or star cards which are added to the player's hand each turn to provide additional tactical and combat advantages during play.

    As the gigantic rocketships maneuver on the Star Map, they blast away at each other with their deadly rayguns. Crew members can leap out of the airlocks to jetpack into combat with other Planeteers or board enemy rocketships to engage in fierce hand-to-hand combat!

    Points are scored by defeating crew, playing star cards and destroying rayguns and rocketships. The player who reaches the game's victory point goal wins the game and is declared master of the galaxy!
