Re: Since a 2nd Editions is planned...

Well cards are just one way to do it. Chits in a cup work fine too and are easily provided. Different color cubes, beads, dice etc all work fine. I don't think that should really be a sticking point if it's a good mechanic. I've played quite a few games recently with multiple methods: 1) As written....

Re: Since a 2nd Editions is planned...

Agreed. Given that, I would think that maybe just adding an extra 'card' or two to the action deck would do the trick cleanly and efficiently. The only real thing to be determined there would be whether to add a fixed number of each level command advantage over your opponent (say 2 per point) or jus...

Re: Starmada Fleet Ops Vassal

Sweet! That looks really really good. I gave it a quick try and it looks like it should work great. I'll let you know if we see any problems when we get a chance to play a game.

Thanks! You've really made this module really flexible for playing SFO!

Re: Since a 2nd Editions is planned...

Yes, I think that approach would work well too. I prefer if 'Command Ships' have to be in range to command and not skulking so something like allowing a Command Ship to activate a friendly ship within 'x' hexes would be good IMO. That's pretty much what I had in mind with the card draw system and al...

Re: Since a 2nd Editions is planned...

That also looks like it could work fine although I'm not sure the costs align well with the command benefit either. It also might be a bit more cumbersome since it requires a few more different decision points. But I think it would still be a nice upgrade over the current all or nothing IGO-UGO. And...

Re: Starmada Fleet Ops Vassal

I think that looks like it would work great! And just a 'clear all' command would be helpful too but not necessary if it's difficult to implement. I think will be a really good way to play the game, especially for people who aren't overly fond of the default UGO-IGO system. Thanks again for your eff...

Re: Since a 2nd Editions is planned...

I just played a few quick 300 point battles with the 'deck' system and I think it worked out pretty well. I think the fighters will have to have their own short 'sub-phase' during the Combat Phase though or else they just become too much of a force multiplier by seeding the deck with fire opportunit...

Re: Starmada Fleet Ops Vassal

Hi, As per the discussion in the Fleet Ops forum, I would like to playtest a mechanic with some remote friend. I have a 'feature request' if you have the time to look into it. ;) Basically I would like to be able to create a 'deck' or 'bag' or 'draw pool' and then be able to pull out 'cards' or 'chi...

Re: Since a 2nd Editions is planned...

I had been using a straight up alternation (adjusted for rough ratio of units/side) and it works pretty well but I like the idea of a card draw system. Something like: At the beginning of the Movement Phase, build a 'deck' adding in one red for each ship on side A and one black for each ship on side...

Re: Since a 2nd Editions is planned...

I don't mind the IGO-UGO for ships too much but it seems to be far more crippling when fighters are involved. At least with ships if you're the 'B' player you have a chance to maneuver after seeing the 'A' player move and thus can sometimes position yourself a bit better to concentrate fire or reduc...
