Correct!

Planned for Dec. 12 2015 Kickstarter with fulfillment in Q2 2-16. Look for ads and announcements with further details soon - as well as Cover and other art.

i suppose it'll be priced in a similar fashion that the prequel to this was?

Really excited to see how this plays!

Ralph, who did the additional development / re-implementation work on this?

Hi Dante -

I did the game development. It was really a 'ground up' design. It was based on the mechanics from Age of Discovery, but there is so much new content and gameplay in there that it will absolutely feel familiar, but plays quite differently.

We've been having a ball with it every time we play tested. The new mechanics: The Galactic Senate, The Imperial military (planet-side troops and fleets), The Covert Missions, and lots more conflict (as you would expect in a Space Opera-Galactic Rebellion type game) are tremendous fun!

Will there be any early bird specials that we'll need to worry about?

You can take my game… when you pry my cold, dead fingers off the board!

The Good:
- I looked through the rules and the gameplay additions/changes sound really cool and intriguing!
- The art as seen on cards in the bgg gallery look great with a wonderful retro vibe.

The Bad:
- Graphic design on the cards however looks very poor. The many bevel and glow effects come across as bad instead of retro. The board as shown in the rules isn't very inspiring either. I'm really hoping the right hand "event tracks" get a major overhaul. Even the planet layout seems rather bland.

Sorry to be negative but the gameplay looks very promising and I'd really like to see a high level of graphic design to match!

Very excited for this one - I'll likely be backing, but i'd also like to chime in that the art looks a bit... rough. I'd agree that it looks very "first draft" and could be improved in many ways before it hits the printer's.

Ultimately, I'll back whatever way the art direction goes, but I do hope you revisit this and tighten up a bit before printing.

Thanks for the news, I look forward to learning more!

I am on the fence of backing this, need more info on it. I must also agree that for the graphic design I am not really liking it, would need an overhaul before I´d back it.
