Living Starship

Living Starship™ is an epic, multi-platform and ongoing experience that is part legacy-style tabletop gaming, part mobile match-3 gaming, part story-telling and part live action interactive play fueled by you. Inspired by elements of board games, our favorite sci-fi entertainment, a passion for shared story-telling and a tidbit of LARP (live-action-role-playing), Layman Kingsford and Cheeky Dingo Entertainment have embarked on an interactive project unlike anything else.

Ages 9+   •   3-7 Players   •   15-30 minutes

A casual card game where each player is the captain of their own starship. Play your crew cards to collect mission tokens and become the most renowned captain in the fleet. 

You will be familiarizing yourself with the Division colors and rank insignia of the Living Starship setting while using your officer and enlisted cards to gain the most points. Officers always outrank enlisted, but the enlisted can gang up on the officers.

Ages 13+   •   2-4 Players   •   30 minutes

A lightweight, resource management and dice game that trains your cadets before they serve onboard a Fleet vessel. This can be a stand-alone game or you can transfer the results into the Legacy Missions board game as your own customized crew.

Players will acquire dice by attending classes and will then roll them in order to pass exams in Science, Health, Agency, Engineering, Flight, Tactical and Operations in order to graduate.

Ages 13+   •   2-4 Players   •   30 minutes

A lightweight game that sends your newly-graduated cadets from the Academy on missions during their early deployments.

Each player runs one ensign and a team of six privates on a series of missions to see who gains notoriety and gets promoted to the highest rank. Which of your officers will gain enough commendations to earn their first captaincy?

This game utilizes the cards from RANKaree, the dice from Academy Preludes and cubes and meeples from Legacy Missions. As such, this is not a stand-alone game but requires the other three.

Ages 15+   •   1-8 Players   •   90+ minutes

A middleweight, Legacy-style, board game of worker placement and resource management. Customize your starship and send it on travels to complete missions for Fleet Command to keep your assigned sector of the galaxy in order.

With the Krukari invasion, Fleet resources are stretched pretty thin throughout the rest of the galaxy and society is teetering on the edge of collapse on many fronts.

This is on ongoing legacy game epic that will extend long after you have completed the contents of this box. The characters you have handled in all these games will grow, learn and have full careers in the Fleet. Not all may survive the struggles to come, but your job will be to inhabit your own, unique, version of the Citadel Galaxy and create your own sci-fi saga. 


We are creating a shared cosmos in which writers of fan fiction have an “official” outlet for their desire to scribe meaningful stories.  We wanted a tabletop and a digital game experience that captures the intricacies  of managing a starship and it’s crew in a way that we have not seen in any other sic-fi game.

What we have come up with is a LEGACY tabletop game that co-operatively brings 1-8 players onboard a full starship to keep their assigned space sector’s economy, society and politics flowing smoothly. The ship is operated via worker placement and resource management mechanics. It is a legacy game, meaning that the things that happen to your version of the vessel are permanent and make each copy of the game unique.

In addition, there will be a rich digital game that utilizes the elegant and familiar simplicity of match-3 game play to provide you with the experience of managing the crew members onboard an ever-increasing fleet of starships in an expansive cosmos.

If you choose to do so, you can also write the stories of your game experiences, flesh out the crew and officers as characters and possibly even help design the emerging shared universe of the game.

We plan to have live-action game play at conventions and at local bars. These events will allow you to partake in life aboard a Citadel Fleet vessel and to help work through central plot developments that will impact the overall saga for years to come!
