Looking for advice for this piece of table art/display. I am not a GA but I have some of the art I was able to merge into a document.

I'm looking for input, suggestions, wording, etc. for this. If this is too small or doesn't display please take the time to go to one of the below:

Thank you again

Really? Another argument about what a word means? Really?

It certainly sounds like a fun game and the display sells the game well.

You might consider re-writing this section:
"No one is ever eliminated and players that have damaged ships can continue to make meaningful decisions instead of just repairing their ship during their turn."

I understand that the issue of "What should players with damaged ships do?" was probably a design challenge and you are proud of the solution. But to anyone who hasn't played the game, it doesn't really mean anything. I would try to keep it more generic like "No players are eliminated. The fate of your faction lies not only in your hands, but also those of your opponents."

@Sagrilarus: Thank you, it's been in the works for 2 years w/ private play tests. I just got up the nerve recently to start sharing the information.

Thanks again.

@rlennon: Thank you for the compliment.

That is a very valid point. I am proud of that point as it took a while, but you're right people that have never played the game are going to cock their heads.

I just completed a re-mock based on other people's input, I did not capture this language but will play with it after work (early tomorrow AM).

Again, thank you for taking the time to write this out to help me.

Version 2 prior to the update to language from above. Will rework it after work.

Thanks again all.

@rlennon: How does this sound?

"It's family friendly also, as no one is ever eliminated from the game.

The fate of your faction is up to you. Will you amass weapons of war, explore the stars or colonize the worlds you discover? What edge will you find that puts your faction on top?"

Revisions to text per input, font type and size, and legibility increased through outline.

Thanks again guys.
