Wouldn't it be great if you could play a game where you can play as a crew as well doing battle in space? Now you can.
Game Review by the UNDEAD VIKING
Destiny Aurora: Renegades is a uniquely immersive sci-fi game where players control both dogfights in space while their Away Team performs a mission on the planet’s surface. Discover a universe of alien races and indigenous creatures and even board enemy ships as the story unfolds. Customize your crew and your ship during this exciting and fast-paced campaign-based miniatures board game based on the successful book series.
With your help we are developing an amazing new world inspired by the characters and elements of the Destiny Aurora novels, with you at the helm. You have the con. "Fast-paced, strategic and fun!" Those are the words that describe the new Renegades Board Game that we've been play testing for the past eight months.
With a set of 24 unique Figures you can play as Jayce, Rovanna, Flibby, X, Rolf, as well as Kunlore Thorne and others as you command the Destiny Aurora, the Cerberus, the Hades or the Eden Fyre while going up against the Zurathi and the Dreggs for the fate of the galaxy.
Choose your faction: will you take jobs from the black market as the mercenary-style Renegades or play as the Intergalactic Coalition Peace-keeping force trying to lock them up for good. Choose your ship and your crew, consisting of a Commander, a Pilot, an Engineer, a Weapons Expert and a Communications Officer/Medic.
The core game will include 3 unique campaigns consisting of 16 different Missions that will send your team to various corners of the galaxy. The Renegades crews may have to abduct a Princess, kill a creature to get a blood sample, steal vital information or even enact an assassination. It's the job of the Coalition crews to thwart them or possibly arrest them. Crews can even board opponent ships.
Each Campaign culminates with an Epic Ending that might have you battling in a civil war, or teaming up with your opponents to fend off the a cataclysmic event that would lay waste to the galaxy.
Choose between 4 uniquely sculpted Ships and a crew consisting of 5 crew members. Each has specific abilities that makes them valuable on both the ship and on the Away Team. Strategize and choose your Landing Party carefully.
Place your Crew on the Ship in one of the 5 Stations. When you send out your Away team you'll have a skeleton crew left on the ship, so your remaining team will have to move between the Stations. Until you earn enough money through completing missions and defeating villains to buy more crew to fill in the gaps.
Tim Russ on The Destiny Aurora: Renegades game:
Destiny Aurora: Renegades is a 1-4 player game that takes between 90 to 120 minutes. With your help we are developing this amazing new world inspired by the characters and elements of the Destiny Aurora novel series.
The game components are inspired by the characters from the novel series by award-winning writer, Frank Zanca. The game features incredible art and amazingly detailed figure sculptures, which will allow you to immerse yourself in this fantastical futuristic world and create stories of your own.
The game is played on two different boards simultaneously. Beginning with the Space Phase where you engage in battle with your ship or land to deploy or pick up your Landing Party. The Planetary Phase is where your team conducts the Mission.
Each of the two boards is created from 9 unique tiles and 4 end caps that are randomly built ensuring that no two games are alike even if you replay the same mission.
You will not only have to go up against your opponents, but enemy ships, Villains and indigenous Creatures will also appear to impede your path toward the Epic Ending that could alter the face of the galaxy forever.
Upgrade your characters and your ships by finding items on the planet or Salvaging debris in space, or you may purchase weapons and items during Shore Leave between missions.

Risks and challenges
There are always risks in backing a new company. This is B&B Games second game, the first being the Refuge. Destiny Horizons has released several books (Destiny Aurora, The Return, Shadow Raven & Escape from Berlin as well as a feature film (Six Gun Savior).
Most of the miniatures have been sculpted and 100% of the art has been finished. We have released the first draft of the rulebook,.
Production delays may occur but we will do our best to deliver on time.
Some art, rules may be altered upon further development
