I’ve recently started watching this show and it seems like it could be a fun game if it was like armada. Actually the expanse could be adapted to a number of different styles of games and work. I just finished season 4 and totally love this show. Sorry for rambling and spit balling lol.

The book series it is based on is amazing. I highly recommend it. The show actually improves on the book series in some ways (though is weaker in some ways, too). There actually is a board game with an expansion that came out a couple of years ago based on the Expanse that I did not play with my group yet (and then 2020 happened and we didn’t play anything for a year), though it’s not really a game like Armada at all. The realistic sci-fi nature of the Expanse’s space combat kind of reminds me of my friends’ descriptions of the recently canceled Battlestar Galactica game (though I never got into that).
the subject matter, number of factions etc lends itself to a number of different styles of games too. I regret waiting so long to watch this show. a few friends over the years have told me about it and I just finally started the show this year.
The show has done a great job of bring that universe to life. Really enjoyable. I would hardly object to someone trying to turn it into a mini game, though the physics of the ships (meaning real physics) would be rather hard to tackle on the table top I think.
