Limber up your fingers, because it’s time for FlickFleet, a dexterity-based spaceship battle between the totalitarian Imperium and the rebellious Uprising.

What Is FlickFleet?

FlickFleet is a dice-flicking dexterity game for 2 players, ages 8 and up, and takes about 20 minutes to play. The game originally funded on Kickstarter last year and delivered to backers this summer.

There are various reward tiers, as low as £5 (about $6USD) for files to create your own copy if you have access to a laser cutter, to £27 (~$33USD) for a standard copy of the game, to £68 (~$83USD) for a deluxe copy of the game with the new scenario pack.

The Imperium’s Dreadnought is enormous, about the length of my palm, while some of the other ships are shorter than my little finger. The bomber and fighter wings are each 3-part ships: the fighters are concentric rings, and the…
