From the Starmada web page:

"Starmada: The Universal Game of Starship Combat is a simple (but not simplistic) board game of starship combat, in which players square off in a general attempt to blast each other's fleets into just so much space junk. There are dozens of optional rules, exotic special equipment items, and menacing weapons that can be used or discarded at your discretion, to create the type of game you want to play."  

 

A free demo version of the game is available for MJ12's Starmada Page.

 

8/12/2012 - Updated Nova edition revisions of Klingon Armada and Romulan Armada books are now available from both Majestic 12 and from Amarillo Design Bureau.

 

3/21/2012 - Starmada Nova Rulebook is now available for pre-orders.  Pre-order customers will receive a download link for a ''beta'' release of the rulebook in PDF format. Once hard copies ship in early April, pre-order customers will receive an updated electronic copy as well.

"The Nova Rulebook represents a new beginning for The Universal Game of Starship Combat. While in some ways this new edition is notably different from previous incarnations of the game, at its core Starmada remains the game players around the world have grown to know and love. As always, the guiding principle has been ''simple, but not simplistic''. Within this book, players will find:
* Streamlined inertial movement, with optional movement systems to encompass a wide range of settings;
* An intuitive combat system, including three distinct and layered types of starship defenses; and
* The most comprehensive set of starship construction rules available in any game currently available
!"

How will this effect the related products?

"Starting in June, an updated version of Klingon Armada will be released, followed in short order by updated versions of Romulan, Alien, and Distant Armadas. Battleship Armada will be released in both Admiralty and Nova versions.

For those of you who own the existing SFU books, there are some options if you are reluctant to buy the updated versions:

First, a short and easy-to-use update document will be available for free, allowing you to convert the Admiralty designs to their Nova versions. It will also include the relevant SFU rules so that, when combined with the basic Nova rules (also available for free) you will have everything you need to be up-to-date.

Second, if you can wait until they've all been updated, a PDF will be made available with all the ships from the first four SFU books (Klingon, Romulan, Alien, Distant) for one very reasonable price."

 

2/5/2012 - The following announcement was made on December 1st 2011 and the new edition has not shown up yet though it is still in the works:

Majestic Twelve Games is pleased to announce that after months of planning, a brand-new edition of Starmada: The Universal Game of Starship Combat is slated for release in January 2012.

While in some ways this new edition will be notably different from previous incarnations of the game, at its core Starmada remains the game you have grown to know and (hopefully) love. As always, the guiding principle has been "simple, but not simplistic".

Among the changes to the core game system, players will find:
* A more streamlined movement system;
* Three distinct and layered types of starship defenses;
* A reduction in the number of die rolls -- and amount of time -- required to resolve ship-to-ship combat. In some cases, the outcome of an attack can be decided by a single throw of the dice!
On the other hand, much remains unchanged, such as:
* A commitment to balanced game play;
* A core set of rules accessible to beginners yet robust enough to support the needs of experienced gamers;
* The most comprehensive set of starship construction rules available in any game currently available!

And of course, Starmada will continue to provide dozens of stand-alone options and advanced rules from which you may pick and choose to fit your desired level of complexity and create the type of game you want to play.

Stay tuned to this space over the coming weeks as we continue to provide more information about this new edition -- I'm sure you'll like what you see!

3/30/2009 - Starmada: Iron Stars released and Klingon Armada announced

Starmada: Iron Stars reveals a world in crisis. Recovery from the Martian Invasion is slow, and its effects will be felt for decades to come. Hopes that the extraterrestrial threat would result in a new spirit of cooperation and coexistence have been quickly dashed, with the Great Powers scrambling to take advantage of technological tidbits left behind by the invaders. While recent conflicts have been thankfully limited in scope, it seems only a matter of time before Humanity is engulfed in a new conflagration this one of its own making.

This supplement is a unique "crossover" project, combining two of our most popular gaming systems. The intent is to introduce fans of the Iron Stars universe to the Universal Game of Starship Combat, while at the same time exposing those Starmada players who may have been reluctant to jump into a different environment a glimpse at an alternate Earth in which the Martian Invasion really happened.

Outside of the thrills of Edwardian space combat, there is plenty in these pages to expand any Starmada setting, including new options like:

* Faceted shielding
* Crew-killer weapons
* Etheric movement
* Critical damage

And more!

Here is the press release on Klingon Armada:

Amarillo Design Bureau and Majestic Twelve Games are proud to announce an agreement has been reached to develop Klingon Armada: a Starmada supplement set in the Star Fleet Universe.

Tentatively scheduled for release in the summer of 2009, Klingon Armada will contain all of the rules options, additions, and starship designs necessary to allow players to pit forces of the Klingon Empire against their perpetual enemies, the Star Fleet of the United Federation of Planets. Future products of the Star Fleet Armada series will expand the scope of this partnership to include the Romulan Star Empire, the Tholian Holdfast, and other combatants of the Star Fleet Universe.

Starmada is a miniatures board game of starship combat. At its most basic level, players take command of space fleets in a general attempt to reduce each other to just so much space junk. At its most advanced, the game can be customized to breathe life into any science fiction background that players might imagine.

Novices shouldn't fret; the core set of rules has been designed with simplicity and ease of play in mind, accessible even to beginners. On the other hand, seasoned veterans should find the concise nature of the rules quite refreshing. It allows players to concentrate on the finer points of squashing their opponents rather than arguing about rules interpretations, without sacrificing any of the flavor or excitement of more complex games.

Simple, but not simplistic, is the guiding principle.

This product line will unite one of the most innovative game designs in the industry with one of the strongest genre backgrounds there is. While the classic Star Fleet Battles was designed for individual ship combat, Starmada was designed from the start for massive fleet battles, using a clean and fast-playing rules system. Klingon Armada will allow players who have long enjoyed such massive battles to now use the fleets of their favorite television and movie empires.

Given that Starmada was designed to be used with miniatures, it will be a natural tie-in to the existing line of Starline 2400 ships used in the Star Fleet Universe. Klingon Armada and the products to follow will be designed to use the existing Squadron Boxes, vastly expanding the market for those products.

The joint venture also envisions moving the new PDF edition of Starmada into retail stores.

 

 

7/21/2008 - Dreadnoughts, the third supplement for Starmada Admiralty Edition is now available.

Dreadnoughts is a setting book for Starmada: The Admiralty Edition that brings to life the epic sweep of naval combat during the First World War.

To many people, the Great War conjures images of mud-soaked trenches and land-locked armies joined in a futile embrace across no-man's land. But navies were just as important to victory (if not more so); and it was on the seas that the conflict truly became a World War. From the North Sea to the Mediterranean, from the Black Sea to the South Pacific, battles raged across the globe.

So, go ahead: swap your energy shields for armor plating and the blackness of space for the wine-dark sea, and see if you have what it takes to rule the waves!

In addition to data cards for one hundred ship classes from eight different navies of the early twentieth century, Dreadnoughts adds brand-new options to the Starmada game, including flotillas, wet-navy style movement, and dual-mode fighter flights, which can be used individually or collectively to enrich any setting. Also included are six historical scenarios, allowing players to re-fight various naval actions of the Great War.

Dreadnoughts is not a stand-alone product; ownership of the Starmada Admiralty Edition Core Rulebook is required.

 

5/1/2008 - Hammer & Claw: The Grumm Wars Sourcebook is now available:

Majestic Twelve Games is proud to announce the release of Hammer & Claw, the newest supplement for Starmada: The Universal Game of Starship Combat.

The claw, bloodied, represents war. On seven occasions the Grumm have encountered those that are not Grumm, and three times they have parted in peace. Four times Grumm have died, and those who mourned have called for the Assemblage, claws unsheathed. Before, the enemy was excised, without pity or hate. The Grumm are the children of war, but they take no joy from killing. It is a tool, applied as all others are applied, to secure tomorrow. Those who threatened the future died, whether in their ships or on the ground, until they posed no threat. They were reduced so that, as under the Law, the Grumm need not fear them for the span of ten thousand litters.

Hammer & Claw: The Grumm Wars Sourcebook is a supplement for the Starmada game, detailing a universe in which Mankind's first contact did not go well...

The Wars are an ongoing conflict between Earth's spacefaring nations and the Grumm, bent on exterminating what they perceive as a threat to their very existence. Hostilities are driven, as with most wars, by greed, misunderstanding, and fear, in equal measure. Can Earth's superpowers, wary and distrustful of each other for more than 300 years, unite in the face of a common enemy? Or has humanity already doomed itself to annihilation?

In addition to extensive background material describing the Grumm Wars universe, this book contains thirty-five new starship designs representing the alien Grumm, the nomadic Boers, and Terra's three spacefaring powers: the Union of European States, Daitoua Kyoueiken, and Pan-Atlantic Commonwwealth. Also included are several scenarios, plus all of the supplemental rules necessary to fight out the Grumm Wars, including brand-new options such as shipboard combat and dual-mode weapons.

 

1/15/2008 - The Imperial Starmada Sourcebook is now available:

Majestic Twelve Games would like to announce that the Imperial Starmada Sourcebook is now available! This is the first in what is hoped to be a long series of setting books in support of the Starmada game.

These pages describe the universe of the Imperial Starmada: the interstellar naval arm of the Terran military. Although in a state of uneasy peace with its immediate neighbors, the Starmada is now faced with its greatest threat--an alien power of unknown size, strength, and intention. Can the Terrans summon a coalition to face down this new adversary, or will old enmities force the Empire to its knees?

In addition to historical background for five different factions in the Starmada universe, the Imperial Starmada Sourcebook includes:

*Thirty starship designs for the Starmada and its major adversaries;
*New starship options and weapon traits, including anti-fighter batteries, overthrusters, limited ammunition, and more;
*Rules for three-dimensional movement and combat interception;
*The "Simplest Campaign System"; and
*A complete board game that can be used as a scenario generator for Starmada.

The Imperial Starmada Sourcebook is not a stand-alone product; ownership of the Starmada Admiralty Edition Core Rulebook is required.

 

12/17/2007 - Majestic 12 has released the Starmada: The Admiralty Edition core rulebook and the Imperial Armada Sourcebook should follow within a couple weeks:

Starmada: The Admiralty Edition represents nearly a year of collective effort to update, streamline, and otherwise improve upon the Universal Game of Starship Combat. In addition to the essential rules, the Core Rulebook includes:

* Nearly 100 different options from which to pick and choose to create the type of game YOU want to play;

* A design system that allows for nearly five million different types of weapon;

* A fully-customizable set of rules for small craft, allowing for over one million different types of fighters, drones, and seeking weapons;

* Guidelines for converting your Starmada X ship designs to their Admiralty equivalents;

* A half-dozen sample scenarios; and

* The most comprehensive and flexible starship construction rules of any game available.

The 84-page Core Rulebook is available today through our online catalog for $16.95 (U.S.) A PDF version will also be available shortly through the major e-book vendors.

Today's release includes only the Core Rulebook--unfortunately, there is still some work to be done on the Imperial Starmada Sourcebook. Rather than prolong the agony of those desperate to see what we've done, while still ensure the best product possible, we've decided to release the rulebook today, as promised. The Sourcebook will follow within the next two weeks. This 48-page supplement will include:

* Detailed background material on five of the major factions in the Starmada Universe;

* Three dozen starship classes;

* Several new scenarios; plus

* A simple (but not simplistic) campaign system.

It is January 22, 2004, exactly ten years to the day since I first posted the Starmada rules to rec.games.design...

Break out the candles and champagne!

To celebrate, I've completed some major revisions to the Starmada X rules:

1. I've added all of the appendices from the Compendium, suitably updated to fit the Starmada X system;
2. It is now official -- if you roll damage that cannot be applied, then the ship takes a hull hit instead;
3. There's an index (you're welcome, Jim!);
4. I've included the original version 1 rules;
5. I've re-confirmed the starship designs, including giving the Arcturans a TL +1 to reduce their hull sizes;
6. I've added artwork.

Best of all, the revised and expanded rulebook is FREE to those who have already purchased the Starmada X Boxed Set. Visit our web site at www.mj12games.com, and follow the link for Starmada.

In addition, the tick-marks around the perimeter of each disk makes tabletop/hexless gaming a snap! Each pack contains one each of 5 different designs, mounted on 1.5" wooden disks. The disks themselves are unpainted, so you can color-code them any way you see fit."

          Each pack of 5 disks is $2.95  (a picture of a couple of disks is to the right below the Starmada cover) plus they have released some additional wood spaceship miniatures.
