It’s still one of my favorite games, but it doesn’t hit the table very often anymore, just because it takes more prep and play time than I usually have these days. These days when my group has that kind of time we go for straight up role playing games. Now news has come across the aether that a new edition is on the horizon!
When you have a game as well designed as Battlestations it’s a little nerve wracking to hear about a new edition, especially when you know there will be some noticeable changes to the design. However I am encouraged from some of the news I’ve seen. It looks like the focus has been on streamlining the game, allowing the players to get into the action more quickly but with a focus on keeping the qualities that make Battlestations so much fun.
I will be watching this develop with great interest.
The Kickstarter will be launching on February 2nd!
Below are two videos; the first is an introduction to the game and the second is a simple explanation of the base rules and a play example.
