Galactic Battlefield is the national Board game of Vyomania. It is a strategy game that is a combination of Chess, Khet and Battleship. It is played on ruled grids on which each player's fleet of Spaceships (or Vyomjahaz) are marked. The locations of the fleets are concealed from the opponent. Players alternate turns at the other player's ships, and the object of the game is to destroy the opponent's mothership, where the king resides and there is no way for him to escape.

Game

The object of the game is to destroy the opponent's mothership, the RLS Destroyer. The RLS Destroyer carries a Doomsday device. If you get defeated, your opponent will reach and destroy your planet. Each player has to protect their planet.

Gameplay

In the current version of the game, each player starts the game with 4 playing pieces on a 12x12 board and a Nirvana. Players position their ships on the board and start the game when both players are ready. The locations of the fleets are hidden from the opponent. Players alternate turns at the other player's ships, and the object of the game is to destroy the opponent's mothership, where the king resides and there is no way for him to escape. There are also several ways a game can end in a draw. Players can move all of their ships except the Nirvana.
