A question was recently asked about campaign missions. The two expansions formerly available via our previous publisher were the only sets including campaign missions. These two expansions are being retooled for set up at our new publisher. So the player who asked about missions had to be told none are available at this time. But the question about campaigns brings back an old idea.

We'd like to release some downloadable missions. These missions can be created on a smaller scale and don't have to be integrated into a full expansion set. That would make for a quicker release schedule of these downloadable missions.

But we need your help! Originally the plan was to build a list of mission types, and from there fill in details of particular missions depending on objectives and available cards and maps. You can help build future downloadable missions by offering ideas. At this stage we're just building the list of mission types. Here is what we've got so far.

* Race: first to get somewhere
* Retrieve: first to get something and bring it somewhere else
* Destroy: destroy a particular target
* Survival: stay alive a designated number of turns
* Escort: keep something else alive

And there are variations on these themes. For example, a retrieval mission could include a hide and seek variant, where you have to first find the target in question, then be the first to get it and bring it somewhere.

And there are plenty other ideas that could be developed from the above list. But before we get into development, we need to expand the mission types list. Please post your ideas here!
