Fallen Frontiers is a miniature game, set in a futuristic sci-fi society where humans have colonized much of the galaxy and have found powerful energy sources and intelligent life forms with advanced technology.
In the universe of Fallen Frontiers different factions fight for control over planets and their strategic resources in order to expand in a galaxy that holds lots of secrets. The players take control of a faction that can be shaped by choosing troops, characters and cards that best adapt to their game style.
Fallen Frontiers is a miniatures wargame game based on combat squads. The squads offer protection and firepower for the force’s heroes. Heroes are the ones that define the game style because their attributes change the characteristics of their task force. Because of this each squad performs differently depending on the hero that leads them. However in Fallen Frontiers heroes are not invincible, but instead are easy to eliminate when they are isolated.
Players have an armory available, where they can purchases equipment at the beginning of the battle, giving benefits to the units in combat.
Besides the miniatures that represent their army, players will also have a deck of tactical cards assembled by them. Since this deck of cards is prepared secretly, players don’t know their opponent’s strategy, allowing them to change their play style in such a way that opponents will not be able to guess their strategy at first sight.
The factions and the tactical cards use up resources to carry out certain actions. The main resources are Command and Krithium. Players gain Command by keeping alive the leaders (heroes) of their army. Using Command points will make an army more powerful and allow players to use their tactical cards. Krithium is a resource that can be collected during the game. It is the source of energy that enhances certain equipment and cards.
