Starmada Nova Rulebook now available for pre-orders

Postby mj12games » Wed Mar 21, 2012 3:00 pm

Spring is in the air... birds are chirping, bees are buzzing, and the Starmada Nova Rulebook is available for pre-orders!

Starmada is a miniatures board game of starship combat. At its most basic level, players take command of mighty fleets in a general attempt to reduce each other to just so much space junk. At its most advanced, the game can be customized to breathe life into any science fiction background that players might imagine.

The Nova Rulebook represents a new beginning for The Universal Game of Starship Combat. While in some ways this new edition is notably different from previous incarnations of the game, at its core Starmada remains the game players around the world have grown to know and love. As always, the guiding principle has been ''simple, but not simplistic''. Within this book, players will find:

* Streamlined inertial movement, with optional movement systems to encompass a wide range of settings;
* An intuitive combat system, including three distinct and layered types of starship defenses; and
* The most comprehensive set of starship construction rules available in any game currently available!

Dozens of stand-alone options and advanced rules are provided, from which you may pick and choose to fit your desired level of complexity and create the type of game YOU want to play.

Pre-order customers will receive a download link for a ''beta'' release of the rulebook in PDF format. Once hard copies ship in early April, pre-order customers will receive an updated electronic copy as well.

Soon. ;)

EDIT: I do not expect to provide the file to other distributors until after the hard copies have shipped, but you can get the "pre-release" PDF from the MJ12 web site: http://www.mj12games.com/starmada/mjg0130.html

OK; I was at first discouraged by the fact that you only take PayPal, but then discovered that I had $13 in paypal from a mysterious source, so it's a moot point now... expect to get another sale once I'm done with this assignment :P.

FWIW, you don't need a PayPal account...
