Just got a printing from Stevene. Haven't played it yet but rating based on quality of the design and components. Can't complain if it's free!

Th 12 Apr 02012 - Printed another Tri-Quad Truly 3D flatpack version based on TN12 rolls. Demoed an enjoyable and close game to my dad.

Printed a playable "Flatpack" version of the game as a proof of concept.

One player and to assemble yourself. Had a really fun time doing that (playing and assembling). The theme and gameplay gave me a "porco rosso" feeling (a Ghibli movie): maybe fun to make some 'ghibli dice' for this game...

Just printed and built the base version for now--if I like it I will probably craft the expansions (+ maybe some fan expansions). Decided to try it out based on the cool artwork and theme alone.

Innovative game design for which I have all the expansions (fan too!) and some extra pirates. Very fun, but decided to give away as it wasn't getting enough love!

Like this game a lot. fast play, easy to build and understand. Pirate movement gives the feel of an arial dogfight. Pirates might be underpowered. Played 3 games with core rules, adding in expansions on next play. I can really see the potential for narrative and legacy play here, though.

It's always nice to see someone do new and interesting things with dice. This game has great theme and good concept. My plays have had a few issues however. In 3 plays of the base game, I am undefeated--does this mean the game is too easy? I cannot see any good reason to give up a round of attacking the pirates in favor of movement--what am I missing? It never seems as if the pirates can damage my ship faster than I can repair it. Thus, the game seems to degenerate into a dice fest with too few decisions. Since most expansions (including the fan expansion) seem to toughen the pirates, I suspect that I am not alone in finding the game too easy. Still, I am enjoying this game and looking forward to trying the expansions.

Novel ideas and mechanics. I like the big cube pieces. A bit fiddly but plays fast, especially when using extra dice to save roll time. Way too easy even with the expansions and play variants. Almost no meaningful decisions.

No decisions to be made in the game. The mechanics simulate a dog fight pretty well so there is a game in here somewhere. I'm not a fan of house rules, but since it was such a hassle to make the pieces I will give it a try.

The goals will be
allow meaningful decision making
Depend less on Dice rolls

Whoah. Look at this one - PnP, solitaire play, and a theme for fans of Nausicaa, old-style aircraft, Sky Captain, etc.

Can't wait to play it this weekend!

I'd love to give this a higher rating for the reasons I wanted to print it off and give it a go: its a beautiful little game and the multi-part zeppelin mechanic is really cool.

The problem is movement. Movement of the zeppelin is completely pointless because you can't attack and you really have no idea where the pirates will move next anyway. So offensively it gets you nothing: no reason to re-position your guns. And defensively it gets you nothing: no reason to try to shield damaged sections.

I realized that I could simulate the whole game by simply throwing a set of 6 D12 over and over again tallying the results each time and marking "wins."

If movement could somehow be made meaningful this might really shine.
