Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I have a decent Summoner Wars collection. Master Set, Jungle Elves, Filth, Mercs, Tundra Orcs and Phoenix Elves, (first summoners only) and all corresponding Reinforcements packs, and the three promo Mercs.
I've wanted to try Bolvi's 'Tower Defense'-style deck for a while. Miniature Market has many SW product still in stock at $4/deck.
Ordered the 2nd Summoner decks for Cave Goblins and Guild Dwarves, plus Grungor's Charge. Total cost before shipping was only $12.
Now I have 14/16 factions represented, with at least the Reinforcements for each for a reasonable amount of deckbuilding. Always a great experience, and so easy to teach. @truth , @Grungebob , anything planned for Summoner Wars' 10th anniversary? 2nd batch of fan art summoners?

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I've been wanting to try Starship Samurai! Looks awesome.

Played Star Wars Rebellion this last weekend. One of my favorites and it doesn't hit the table often enough. Messed up a few minor rules which would have saved me, but alas the Empire crushed my base at the last second.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

If you like Rebellion, consider War of the Ring. Similar in theme, (good guys with low resources vs. bad guys with all the things, good guys win by destroying the macguffin, bad guys win by conquering).
However, it thematically holds together better. You won't draw a card that says 'plot important character does this.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I like Rebellion quite a bit too and it doesn't get played often enough. It it a solid 4 hour game and we've been trying to play more 1-2 hour games so we can maybe play two games in the span on one sitting.

This. +1000.

@YK - Once you get a few games in of War of the Ring, you should be able to play in about 2.5 hours.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I got Red Alert: Space Fleet Warfare last Saturday, mounted its 149 spaceships Sunday morning with a single tube of Krazy Glue, and hosted the two tutorial games that afternoon between two pals. Now I've played it eight more times myself, with four other people individually in its two player format; only two of them having been solitaire games! So far this has included the two "training" games and four of the numbered scenarios--6 different battles of the 25 that came with the giant Kickstarter package.

If you take the scenarios in order, they each add a new situation, terrain, or rule. The numbered games include the Task Force fleet building system, which usually gives you 100 building points worth of ships to your fleet and allows you to add 40 more, and then place all the ships in certain designated hexes as you wish to deploy them.

The game has very fast action, with many Star Tokens available to operate both your second deck cards and your fleet itself. The other major difference in this new Commands & Colors series game is Red Alert, a critical hit that can sometimes be bought off if you take only one at a time by paying Star Tokens, or are next to your Flagship, but otherwise forces a retreat that leaves you immobile and with diminished fighting capacity until you can repair the damage!

Your ships include Long Range Fighters, CAP Fighters (Combat Air Patrol), Destroyers, Cruisers, Battleships, your Flagship, with "Heavy" versions of most of these, which add a fourth mini to its unit type. There are four additional Victory Conditions possible mixed into various scenarios in different combinations, besides the default one of finishing off the last ship of a unit for a Victory Point. Units are worth more points the larger its ship type or more numerous its minis.

The six expansions allow you to add a second "Vice Admiral" flagship, Dreadnought (super battleship), Carrier (with a third type of Carrier Based Fighter), Transports, a Space Platform (orbital Station), and to the core game Asteroids and Planetary Groups, the additional space terrain of Meteors and Space Rifts.

Its lots of fun! Designer Richard Borg has already posted more frequently than usual on the boardgamegeek game forum to clarify rules, and we're having some good discussions over there as we learn how to play, post additional player aids, and etc. Three additional expansions are planned, including a ground warfare module called Planetfall.

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

On the topic of Summoner Wars, one more Alliances set would be quite neat.

Jungle Elves/Swamp Orcs: One linked to animals, the other to plants.
Phoenix Elves/Filth: If Elien makes a deal with the undead, I could see Maldaria making a deal with the corrupt.
Shadow Elves/Deep Dwarves: Both seek knowledge, and avoid the light.
Vanguard/Benders: Imagine a former Bender Summoner turned crusader, using powers of the mind to convert the heathens.
Mountain Vargath/Guild Dwarves: Both defend mountainous regions. May make for a turtle-type gameplay, but could be fun.
Fallen Kingdom/Cave Goblins: The Filth have had their way with the Cave Goblins, next ought to be the Undead Army's turn. I have a picture in my head of an undead Feeder champion or Mole Dog commons.
Sand Goblins/Tundra Orcs: While initially weird, I think the combination of potentially conjuring blizzards and sandstorms to be quite synergystic
Cloaks/Mercenaries: The faction most mercenary-like already paired with the normal Mercs, I think would go well.
