Skirmish Tactics: Apocalypse
Skirmish Tactics Apocalypse (STA) is a two player board game set in a post-apocalyptic near future.
There are two ways to play STA: skirmishes and conquests. Skirmishes are standalone games played for a single victory, with no lasting repercussions. Conquests
are a series of skirmishes linked in a league-style arrangement. In conquests, players begin with a group of recruit characters.
STA is a scenario driven game. Each scenario typically has multiple objectives, and combat between factions is usually a secondary or tertiary objective. Players win skirmishes in
STA by gaining victory points through accomplishing these objectives.
The game board for STA – called the gamescape – is formed from modular tiles which are themed to represent different environments. Players build the game board with
nine modular tiles, each of which are divided into a 7×7 grid. Characters use the grids for movement.
Each character in STA is represented by a token and has a corresponding character card. During conquest play, characters improve their attributes and develop new
abilities as they progress from Recruit to Veteran and then Elite status.
STA makes use of 10-sided dice for all dice rolls. Some 10-sided dice
begin with 0 and are numbered sequentially through 9. If you are using 10-sided dice with a number 0, treat any 0 result as if it were a 10. At any time in the game when both
players roll a 10-sided dice and the result is a tie, the players reroll the 10-sided dice until the tie is broken.
