Shoulder of Orion playing pieces

The heart of Shoulder of Orion is a set of 6 deck-tiles with different objectives and corridor layouts types on them. The players will take turns laying these down and construct a different board each time you play.

Once the board is built, you assume control of one of the six fleets of the Shoulder of Orion world, and begin your battle for control of the ship. You will hunt your foe through dark corridors, capture or defend shipboard objectives, be wary of the deadly robot, and fight your way to ultimate victory and control of the ship.

All BoLS Boardgames can be enhanced with easily available plastic pieces from standard board games you probably have lying around your house, like chess, checkers, etc… Its an easy way to “dress up” your game if you enjoy the feel of 3d-playing pieces.
