Starfire is a galactic conquest-style game, in which players take on the role
of leaders of their own civilization, and set out to become the premier
civilization of the galaxy. It is very similar to computer games such as
Master of Orion or Pax Imperia, for those familiar with such, but unlike them
is played entirely through the medium of pencil and paper. I have found it
to be one of my favorite games, by virtue of it's complexity and depth.
Starfire includes just about all aspects of civilization management.
Technology research, income management, economic and military expenditures,
and colonization. In the event of war, rules for both strategic and tactical
levels of combat provide a very realistic model of space warfare.
The current developers for Starfire are the SDS, the Starfire Design Studio.
Because of their dedication to the game, several new products have recently
been released in electronic format. For information, contact
