Description

Dystopian Wars is a tabletop wargame of naval battles using highly detailed miniatures to represent huge engines of destruction on, above and below the high-seas. Set in an alternate late-Nineteenth Century called the Dystopian Age, super-science fuelled nations clash over resources and power. Pick your faction and fight for dominance over the seas and skies with incredible machines of war fuelled by extraordinary technology – dread marvels of the Dystopian Age.

This box set not only provides everything you need for two players to start playing Dystopian Wars, but it also contains a campaign that details the theft of the prototype Hypatia Class Generator ship by the Russian double agent Helsinki Markov. The Commonwealth Intelligence Service (known as the Okhrana) have seen a chance to acquire Enlightened secrets and add new technology to their arsenal in order to better defend the Commonwealth. They risk reprisals from the Enlightened but as long as the technology is theirs it would be worth the consequence. The Covenant guard their secrets jealously and losing the Generator ship will cost them years of research and development. The game is afoot and the stakes are high for both sides.

The Hunt for the Prometheus will walk players through the rules of Dystopian Wars game by game, slowly building up to the final confrontation between the Russian Commonwealth Fleet and the Covenant of the Enlightened Fleet.

New Variant of this Game is Great! - KingofBoards

9/10
So far so good, a very different take to that of the Spartan Dystopian Wars - much quicker and easier to follow but does have a lot less 'crunch' which will be a loss to some of the old players. - GreenOakSteve

9/10
Great game. For 80 Euro you get 30 ship miniatures and 52 dice (I bought 2 starter sets, 1 english and 1 german language). Only disadvantage. No unit cards and construction manual in the starter box. You have to download them. And the german version has too much writing errors (no good lectoring). - CommanderDarken
