About this project
In the Apocalypse Universe, heroes fight for the entertainment of the crowds. Single combat or Team vs Team. Choose your champions, choose their abilities and choose your destiny!
GALACTIC ARENA is a fast paced tactical battle BOARD GAME. Players choose a Hero or Heroes and take on the role of galactic gladiators. Your Heroes battle in the GALACTIC ARENA: an organized spectacle that is broadcast for the entertainment of the populace all over the galaxy.
Before the game starts, players secretly customize their Heroes. They choose special abilities and weapons from a large pool. They then enter the arena and duel each other in an exciting battle of wits and weapons. GALACTIC ARENA can be played 1vs1, 2vs2 or 3vs3. Only the best advance.
This game is the first in a series of interconnected board games set in the APOCALYPSE UNIVERSE. The Heroes in the GALACTIC ARENA are a part of a long story-line in a grand space opera with lots of drama, dangers and horrors.
We have been developing the ideas behind the GALACTIC ARENA for the last 8 years and now we want to share them with you.
So get ready for a competitive game like no other!
"It's a heck of a fun game and we had a blast playing it... I am always impressed when someone has made a game with all these variable powers and crazy critters and they are able to balance it. They have done that really, really well with this… This game is fantastic. It's a ton of fun!"- Undead Viking (UndeadVikingVideos)
Dice help determine the results of a fight, a lucky turn could do 3 damage, or do none! Strategy also plays an important role. Simply attacking and defending leaves your results to chance.

Risks and challenges
Galactic Arena is a finished game from a design standpoint. We have sent the production files to the printing press right before the start of the campaign in order to make boxed set prototypes. The number of copies produced will depend on the success of the campaign. Stretch Goals will also affect the number of additional components produced. Barring unforeseen circumstances we expect production to be finished by the end of October 2014.
Shipping will take place from Europe. If we discover shipping is delayed in any way we will immediately inform the affected backers.
If a package is lost or damaged we will send you a new one. Should the loss of a package occur because the wrong address was given or should the backer not claim the package in time, we will request compensation for the additional shipping costs.
After the campaign ends you may cancel your GALACTIC ARENA pledge for any reason until the end of October 2014. Send us a message and we will refund you.
The Miniature Preview only has 2 Miniatures. We release an expansion for Galactic Arena with 20 miniatures sometime next year. If you picked up the PREVIEW we will offer a cheaper version of the expansion that includes the 18 miniatures not in the PREVIEW SET.
There are 10 Heroes in the CORE SET. Each of them with unique abilities, flavor and combos.
