WizKids has announced Star Trek Mission, designed by Fantasy Realms creator Bruce Glassco and launching in February.

Using the same game engine as Glassco’s Fantasy Realms (see “Build Better ‘Fantasy Realms’”), Star Trek Missions is about building the highest-scoring combination of cards as possible, representing iconic missions, characters, and technology from the expansive Star Trek universe.  Each turn, a player draws one card from the Galaxy deck, the Mission deck, or the discard pile, then discards one card, making it available to their opponents.  The value of each card is determined by the other cards the player holds in their hand, and maximizing these values is the key to winning the game. 

The game includes 50 Galaxy cards, 24 Mission cards, and a score pad.  It is intended for 3 to 6 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in under half an hour.  MSRP is $19.99.

Fantasy Realms received a nomination for the coveted Kennerspiel des Jahres award earlier this year (see “‘Spiel des Jahres’ Nominations Revealed”).  WizKids offered an expansion for that game in January (see “WizKids Expands ‘Fantasy Realms’”).

Next month, WizKids will offer new HeroClix models based on the Eternals movie (see “Play Out the ‘Eternals’ Movie in Next ‘Marvel HeroClix’ Set”).
