Tomorrow once we've received in all of our copies and checked them for damage we'll have more so I would check back often if you miss out on the pre-order allotment. I didn't want to sell the # shipped and then have 5-6 copies be * Dent & Ding * quality. Just fyi

My cart - which is waiting for the next round of [Dead] of Winter - has cosmic encounter on pre-order. I appreciate that BGW is letting me do that. Instead of loading my cart with copies of Hanabi I got two other games I've wanted for a long time. I know they won't come in the same box but that's okay. Cosmic Encounter will be a happy surprise when it arrives.

EDIT: Apparently the entire order will be held until Cosmic Encounter arrives so I'll have to find something else to put there. Bummer.

Is this game really that good, or just the new kid on the block?

New kid on the block. However it is going to be even harder to find once tabletop goes live.

Its a good game, but I prefer BSG. I am happy to have it, but I wouldn't pay an outrageous price for it.

It's reviewed really well and has some new and interesting mechanics (namely, the cross road cards). That said in 5 years it'll probably the fist game to do this but not the best game.

I haven't played it but I've read a lot about it and the consensus seems to be that it's extremely fun and novel but there are some drawbacks and design flaws. Sometimes the story gets a bit broken (as will happen with semi randomly generated story), sometimes one player will end up with more survivors than the others and have much longer turns, and sometimes the game seems unwinnable because the cards just weren't there. There is also a betrayer mechanic which has presented the problem of the betrayer tanking the game for the other guys despite not being able to accomplish his objective and winning. He can just make sure everyone else loses too which i can see being a bit crap. Some folks think it's similar to and not as good as BattleStar Galactica. Others disagree. But even the folks who lobbed complaints at the game said it was brilliant.

These games will also be a series. On their website, the publishers were polling people asking what other themes in the series they would want to see. So if their are design issues, they'll work them out at some point.

They are already working on a space themed one. I figure I can wait.

I will say this. I do not own the game. I've passed on buying it to make sure I can move every copy to others.

That said, I really really enjoyed playing it the few times I've had a chance. I think it strikes on a great balance of theme and game play. Plaid Hat has also done a solid job on the components and aesthetics, which I find of great importance.

I cannot wait until it's more readily available and the next Cross Road game appears to add a new theme. As much as I love Zombie games I really like hitting on Alien or medieval/fantasy themes. There is just something really enjoyable about the game and the system that's been built. I will counter point myself by saying the few times I've played it were with very solid local groups that played their roles well and picked up on the game quickly.

It is a solid game but it didn't wow our game group so having one copy in the group has been more than enough. Having said that... Add a fantasy, scifi or other theme and tweak some of the mechanics that need a little work and I will be all over it...
