Button Wars is a tactical spaceship combat miniatures game. Button Wars is a fast paced, easy to play science fiction fleet combat game that utilizes full color, ready to play metal disks as miniatures. Additionally, the second edition of Button Wars includes complete rules for fighter and mecha units that come packaged as ready to play plastic tokens.
| This e-version of the Button Wars game has been designed as a great sampler for the Button Wars game system. While we can't get you the metal buttons and plastic tokens in an e-product, we can pack in all of the ships, fighters and mecha units from both the Button Wars 2 Player Starter (typically $6.95) and all 8 Button Packs in the first release (combined valued at $47.50), plus astroids and planet terrain. || |
So how can we give you so much game for only $2. Well, that's simple. Unlike an RPG, Button Wars being a miniatures game requires buttons (ala miniatures) to play. We're betting that most players who give this e-version of the game a try will like it. Like it well enough to upgrade the paper ships, fighters and mecha they can print with this e-product for the nice quality buttons and plastic tokens that come with the physical products. But fear not, we've held nothing else back. This e-product contains ALL of the Button Wars rules, buttons, fighter/mecha tokens and score sheets commercially available.
Drawing from the rich 5th Galactic War background set in the Empires & Overlords Universe, Button Wars presents ships for numerous galactic powers and rogue factions. This e-product gives you ships from four of those factions. Those being:
1) Elvesferran Federation
2) Thrash Empire
3) Earth Alliance
4) Folklonian Empire
Future releases will expand upon the ships offered, making available ships from 19 factions from the Empires & Overlords Universe.
