As to the game itself, I have not had the time to play it. I got it the day before we went to Puerto Rico. While there I got sick, and have not been up to much at all since I got back. A trip to the ER yesterday because of shortness of breath indicated that I had what is probably a virus in my lungs. So I am on prednisone and inhalers. Its helping.
Anyway, the components look very good. I have read through the rules, it seems pretty straightforward. For the Kickstarter I got the 4 ships that came with the game, and 4 more. I have since bought 4 more so our group can play it. We will do that Thursday, weather permitting.
The game uses a LOT of counters. I spent one whole evening bagging up the components. A suggestion has been made several places to simply scan the ship mats and either use a fresh one each time or laminate them on some cardboard and use grease pens. I will probably do it. It should be much easier than keeping track of tons of counters.
I also have not painted much. The basement has been cold, and I have not been feeling well. Not a good combination.
I am sure that in a couple of months I will be complaining about the heat here. :) Life in Missouri.
