This very exciting. I will definitely back this one. Stretch goals could be interesting. The new trend seems to be add ons, how about Bios Mega Fauna or Origins?

Don't despair! Perhaps your rocket was crewed by emancipated rodents with implanted computer brains and you were able to avoid that glitch. Unless it was an air brake failure, radiation, or some other horrible space hazard...

I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS GAME!

Yyyyyeeeeesssssssssssssssssss....

This one is going past the Van Allen Belt (in a tube held together with duct tape and tube socks)... story of my last game as the PRC.

Eventually, I'll use your factories to make some technology before I steal water and blast off on my way...


So Stoked!!

I was going to write something about looking carefully at what the new version might bring, but I wouldn't be fooling anyone - I'm going to buy this, and probably a lot of the stretchgoals too

What is the new version going to bring?

(I can get the 2nd edition for a fair price right now, so
I wonder)

Any truth to the rumor that all rocket flights in the new edition game will actually take place inside a Disney sound stage?

I'm curious - how come this kickstarter is by One Small Step games, and not by Sierra Madre games themselves?

Sierra Madre Games is coming out with four games this year: Neanderthal, Pax Pamir, Greenland 2nd edition, and Pax Porfiriana english collector's edition. All have been sent to the printers, and are available for preorder now.

High Frontier 3rd edition was also completed and ready to go, but the four games stretches me on funds to do HF 3rd justice. Also I was not sure how much stuff (fancy components, variants, optional rules, the Interstellar solitaire) to put into HF 3rd, which could be accommodated by a KS stretch goal.

One Small Step (OSS) has a science fiction gaming publication, Ares "a game in every issue", and they have experience in Kickstarter while I have none. So I leased the game to them, to see what they could do with it.

A simpler, more realistic, competitive and thematic game.

I've been maintaining a changes document focused primarily at card changes which runs to over 20 pages. That doesn't track the rules changes which are much easier to understand and play, with a lot less special cases.


Thanks.

Does the 3rd edition plays better with 2 players?

Perhaps we could move the discussions about 3rd edition to the dedicated entry: High Frontier (Third Edition)
I have been camping out there waiting for info. I feel like an explorer there because so few people stop by.

I feel the same way Andrew!

The page for High Frontier (Third Edition) has been still as low density gas cloud far from any high density objects.

Time for things to get lively, like a good old fashioned gravity well. Can'y wait for this game. I haven't backed a Kickstarter since 2014, but I will back this one.

Phil Eklund, I'm sincerely glad you decided to collaborate with One Small Step. I can't imagine the decision process that goes into leasing a game, but I think you made a good choice.

Cheers and beers all around!

Bought the original game + expansion

Bought the zazzle maps twice - first paper than canvas.

Bought an acrylyc sheet to use with the Zazzle canvas map.

Bought HF Colonization and retired the Zazzle Map to use instead the original board with the Colonization half. The acrylic sheet became obsolete.

Now this. And from kickstarter, to boot.

Of course I will buy it!

A bit of color frame or dots for the differnt card types, Generators, Robonauts, Propolusion etc., would help. I want to see the differences on first sight. And blue water crystals or cubes would be nice to.
Last i wish a empty big box for my complete storage of HF & Colonization inside, because the 2nd Edition box is to small for all.

Does the 3rd edition plays better with 2 players?

Two of the playtesters regularly play just with each other and were significant contributors to the rebalanced futures.

I haven't seen any playtest reports from 2 player games. In my experience, auctions don't work very well in 2 player games because of the hand card bidding limit and the ability to win an auction for 0wt, and I don't think 3rd edition did anything to improve that.
