The trade I made last month wound up missing one of the ships. My trading partner was understanding and sent the proper ship to me.

I also received a copy of this game, purchased off Amazon. It's going to be a Christmas present for my roommate.

The copy purchased was a Kickstarter edition, which included this mini-expansion.

Another day of game collection growth.

First was a purchase from a local gamer and fellow BGG'er. A collection of games picked up. I had mainly been interested in this...

Not a high priority for me. But the lot also had this game. I'm most curious about the elephant pieces within. This game came shrinkwrapped.

I was going to be content with the above games from the transaction. But for just a little bit more, the seller provided me with several more games. The clear champion of those was this one, a game I had been curious about for some time.

The collection finally had this one. Shrinkwrapped. I never really looked at it, and it just may find its way back into circulation, or it may possibly become a holiday gift.

Thanks for all of the games,

The auction offered a free game to be included with a Buy It Now bid. This game seemed a natural for me, since I had just obtained The Art of Siege quad last month.

Last, but not least, I finally obtained a pair of copies of this expansion to the classic sci-fi wargame, just before the massive Designers Edition hits (and bends) the shelves.

The cheapest of 3 sellers on Amazon is asking $99.99 for this expansion. Warehouse 23 sells it for the original list price of $14.95.

The same purchase sent a copy of this to me, also. Although it was purported to be an Avalon Hill edition, it turned out to be a 3M copy. As I already obtained a 3M edition last month, this will go straight into my trade stacks.

But I was thrilled to get this in the mail! I loved playing this game a couple years ago. Thanks to Kickstarter, it's finally been reprinted. One of the few KS projects that I've actually backed.

My copy of this game had a couple of misshaped pieces. The publisher was kind enough to send me replacements right away.

I also obtained a bag of counters for this game through a contact on Facebook. My copy is missing a few counters. Sadly, the entire bag only had 1 of the pieces I was missing. But I'll be forwarding the bag to another owner of this game in the hopes that he or she can move towards a complete set for him/herself.

But this was the big acquisition of the day. Despite the Gerry Anderson supermarionation looking para on the cover, it's a great game and one I've been trying to get at a reasonable price for several years. The bonus is that it is an unpunched copy!
