A HANDFUL OF STARS (Treefrog Games, 2 to 4 players, ages 13 and up, 120 minutes; about $80)
As you can may suspect from the title, A Handful of Stars has a science fiction theme. In this Martin Wallace design, players are trying to rebuild their empires after a cataclysm has redistributed solar systems across the galaxy. In game terms, this means players start with scattered holdings, providing a different challenge each game.
