7/21/2008 - Nothing new about Rocketmen in over 2 years and the DVD was never released so I moved this game to OOP Shelf status.


1/2/2006 - The first expansion for Rocketmen, Battle of Titans has been released.

Rocketmen: Battle of Titans moves the battle for the future to the middle of the solar system, introducing the grays of Io, a strong – and strong-armed – miner's union; the winged Saturnians, a noble warrior race; and the humans of Ganymede, the birthplace of humanity and recent allies of the Legion of Terra.

Rocketmen: Battle of Titans is a stand-alone expansion; everything one person needs to fight for the future comes in a single game pack, including rules, dice, ships, crew, and an asteroid card. Also included is a scenario for fighting among the tentacles of the Jovian Fuel Jellies – massive floating creatures mined as the source of rocket fuel!

This expansion adds a new ship type, a new pod, and a new crew type.  Harvesters are agile cargo haulers that, like fighters, come in teams of 2 on a card.  Tractor Beam pods are considered a weapon and allow you to pull a ship towards you.  The new crew type is actually a weapon, the Torpedo.


9/10/2005 - Rocketmen was released at GenCon and there were lots of demos going on.  It is in stores now.  The DVD was delayed and is not available yet.  The 4th and 5th episode of the series are now available, all ships are listed and new scenarios are available for download.

The second season of Rocketmen is Battle of Titans:

Expand your Rocketmen game into the reaches of the middle solar system as Jupiter and Saturn takes sides in the conflict against the Legion of Terra. New races, new pods, new ship designs, and Giant Shocking Jellyfish combine to make the Battle of Titans an amazing second season of fun!
