Was dragged into a demo game for this at a mostly RPG convention by the designer. Bought a copy after playing.

A superb game that it is possible to win with a variety of tactics.The game has a steep learning curve but once learnt makes an excellent game for 3 to 9 players.
I now own a copy of the Artscow version posted in the files section.The cards are better than the originals....

I really enjoy this, despite my inability to do the maths at times! Somehow I always end up in the titanium strategy in my play group.

Just got the new edition and like most of it, but do wish they'd made the cards easier to differentiate across the table. Not too sure about the kicker expansion either - I think it's a better game without it.

One of my all time favorites. I played and owned Scepter of Zavandor for over a year before I got a hold of Outpost. I love them both, but Outpost I love thee more.

I'm playing this game with my local rule which is shorter and severer than the original. Even with the original rule, I love this game. But, now I love more than before.

This game is sharp, but I really enjoy the adrenaline rush.

Some people play Outpost very slowly, but it only takes us about 25 minutes per player.

If you hate doing arithmetic, this is probably not the game for you.

I have played Outpost 20 times in 2011 (actually, 23 now) to mark the 20th anniversary of its initial publication.

*** Woot! I'm delighted that Stronghold Games has re-issued this game (with the v1.32 rules included) in 2011! ***

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

Zepter of Zavandor is a lot better than this 'original', but this IS the original. And it is a SciFi game too! Great game!

Having played this a few more times, I really like it. The economic engine is very tight and can (and usually does) leave one player straggling, but I just really like building my outpost.

Why is this so low? If I rebased my scores so only a few games got 10 this wouldn't be affected (I give a game 10 if I'm happy to play it any time, even consecutive weeks at our club).

Outpost is my original favorite Euro style owned game. This TimJim game, released in 1991, was original in its time. I also own the 20th Anniversary Edition of the game released by Stronghold Games which keeps 98% of the original TimJim game intact. Once called the "Holy Grail" of Euro games, Outpost is a fantastic game of colonization mining in space, while ramping up production, seemingly exponentially increasing your yield of resource credits each turn, directly competing with your fellow miners for technologies brought to the fringe of the universe available for sale, and finally being the first player to the 75 victory point threshold - hopefully for the win. The bidding mechanism makes the game and the availability of the 13 types of technology cards - and how they become available - really stirs up the paths to victory and forces players to adjust their strategies accordingly. I really like Outpost with 4 or 5 players - although it handles one of the widest varieties of players at the table, but bogs down with 7 or more. I love the bidding mechanism and "working players over" in the process. Although you can't technically bluff, Outpost gives a little bit of a bluffing feel to the game and most players that enjoy playing poker tend to do well at reading and exploiting players during game play. This is my favorite "classic" euro game of all time!!!

To alleviate the "rich get richer" "poor get poorer" aspect, we have been working with a card called "Smuggling and Pirating" which is available only to the lowest scorer starting when someone reaches 15 VP. The cost of the card is 10 credits and gives the following benefit based on a d12 roll once per turn during production. 1 = no benefit, 2-5 = free Ore card, 6-9 = free Water card, 10-11 = free Titanium card, 12 = free Research card. If there is a tie for lowest player, those tied may be in auction for card. There are no VP's for this card, but the 10 cost counts towards Player Order Determination. Card is relinquished if this player ever ends a turn in first place. Also we have added MEGA ORE which is worth 13 and can be chosen with only 3 Ore Factories, however the MEGA ORE card only counts as 2 cards in your hand. (handy when you have storage problems) There is no limit to the number of MEGA ORE in your hand at once.

Awesome game! I only don't rate it a 10 because I've only played twice, and a ten requires more plays than that.
