Re: Battleship Galaxies

Not trying to be a one-note wonder, but I really think Xia:Legends of a drift system will scratch this itch between simple BSG combat and TWI complexity.

The US shipping starts soon for backers, so hopefully the retail backers will follow not too far afterwards.

Good, bad. I'm the guy with the gun.

Re: Battleship Galaxies

I have been looking forward to Xia, but I don't agree about scratching the same itch. Xia doesn't look as tactical that is for sure. It seems like it will be similar to Merchants & Marauders but in space, which will be awesome.

Re: Battleship Galaxies

Right now World of Warships is doing a special with a Space version of the game. Reminded me instantly of Battleship Galaxies. The game is basically just WoW with different graphics, but the graphics are amazing and make me really sad about what happened with Battleship Galaxies!

It's like football with swords or LARPing without the geeky stuff. In other words, it's awesomely perfect!

Re: Battleship Galaxies

Richard Borg's "Red Alert: Space Fleet Combat" is probably about as close as we'll ever get to BSG. It's a great game!

I love Richard Borg, but this was my least favorite of his games. I had trouble telling one type of spaceship from another.

Re: Battleship Galaxies

I love Red Alert, which just came out with an eighth small expansion. I also just got Star Wars Rebellion, and its expansion Rise of the Empire, which is strategic but also has minis and tactical combat.

Which is not to say that I wouldn't play Red Alert again, if it makes you happy.

Re: Battleship Galaxies

Out of curiosity - anyone have or know of good customs for BSG? My son and I were looking at it again the other day and thinking we'd play more if there was a bit more variety to it, but neither of us really has the time to develop/playtest anything.

I would love to know also. I was just looking at this game collecting dust in my basement this weekend while looking for another hardly played game. Long ago I thought Xia ships would make good customs, but didn't create any. Story of my life.

Re: Battleship Galaxies

Do you have any of the three expansions for BSG?

BTW, I much prefer Firefly over Xia myself!
