Re: Curious about the business tactic used here...

Been 18 days since last post in 2E and a few more since VBAM member has posted in Second Edition Dev. Can we get a quick update on status; either for the 2E rules or status of the designers/playtesters (how your summer is going). Danke, Thanks, Arigato, etc ...

Re: Lost in a Sea of Stars II - 2E Development Update

Interesting reading. Sounds good. Hopefully nothing more than a few minor tweeks will need to be made with more playtesting. Thanks for the update.

Re: Curious about the business tactic used here...

Another week has gone by, another weekend of play-testing perhaps. Could some of you in the loop tickle our brains with what you are up to ??? Thanks, as always.

Re: Curious about the business tactic used here...

Almost 2 weeks since last "Check in". Keep the juices flowing by giving us something on how the latest 'play tests' are going, please.

Re: Curious about the business tactic used here...

Thanks all for the updates.

Some fools think that 2012 is the year that the world will end; but I think 2012 is the year Empires (in Space) will begin ! With 'Starfire - Solar' and 'Starmada - Nova' already out and Victory by any Means - 2E out soon, the universe is ripe for the taking !

Re: Curious about the business tactic used here...

I hope Tyrel has been soooo ... busy, with 2E that he hasn't had time to give us a quick update. I also hope he hasn't got a relapse of his nasty sinus infection. But I certainly hope that he hasn't gotten sick of working on his baby (VBAM). I know that when I was doing the 9th rewrite of my own rul...

Re: VBAM 2E Playtest Files (Was: Any Updates?)

As always, thanks for the update. I was hoping to see a few more 100% completes on your list, but I am glad that you are making good progress. 2012 will be a good year for making space empires at multiple levels of complexity with VBAM, Starmada, and Solar Starfire (Just out), as well as a few other...

Re: VBAM 2E Playtest Files (Was: Any Updates?)

I'll second what countercheck said. At least 1/2 sounds great to me, It leaves some interesting choices. You can have (per the example) 1/4 th your forces all the way up to the whole fleet stay and deal with the defenders force. How much you choose may depend on what type of fight you are looking fo...

Re: Curious about the business tactic used here...

Glad to hear from ya. My wife also had a nasty 3 week sinus infection too; guess what I'm coming down with since we got together <blush> when she was feeling better. And just in time for the first Polar air mass to get to Minnesnowta this year. Oh well, hope you can make up some lost time in this ne...

Re: Curious about the business tactic used here...

Had anyone heard from Tyrel these last 3 weeks since X-Mas. He has a history of not checking the web, but with his December 2nd message in this post stating that he'd try harder, I'm worried that he or a loved one may have become sick, injured, or worse. I'll keep hoping that he's franticly doing so...
