Re: Battleship Galaxies

i like it !
the word expansions chills me !!! new charakters and ships.

the only thing that is for me not clear is,
is there an epic Battleship Galaxies modus.
that you can use 2 core games or even sips from the 2nd game.

it seems a gig plus a few charakters must go on more ships.

but the a1, and b4 things seems there is only 1 game board and more ships could be more desaster.

so im hooked up for the expansion and who the game could expanded

Re: Battleship Galaxies

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but i don't understand podcasts (i'm able to read, not to listen english ) so i don't know if it was already answered....
.... there's any chance to see it in Italy? or it is a US only product?

Would you like to listen to my music?

Will we know what the 42 point supplied army will be beforehand? As in will I be able to playtest against that army using my bought copy of the game whenever it comes in?

Re: Battleship Galaxies

Well, sort of....

We will have a recommended set up for convenience, but the player not bringing his own fleet will still have the option to customize their army with the available units so long as they keep within faction and do not exceed the fleet cost.

Just FYI - the listed fleet cost of 42 for the event is a lower, but recommended fleet cost. I decided to use the smaller fleet size because it seemed like it would work best for the initial tournament in terms of game time.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

Sounds good. I agree, keep it small for the first tournament. And will we find out what the recommended set up will be?

I can't wait for this game. Can we expect any other release news/reviews/session reports before the release in July? (I refresh the boardgamegeek forums like every half hour, lol. You can imagine my glee when that nice review came in a week ago).

Re: Battleship Galaxies

I have no idea on news, reviews etc...becasue I am not at liberty to reveal any more than what truth has put up in his front page article.

I will post the recommended fleet/card setup that we will offer for each faction once the game has been officially released.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

No, it's not that. It's very much its own beast - but it's a great game, and I think that anyone who likes Heroscape will find a lot in this to enjoy.
