*Merry Christmas To All!*

In an exchange of holiday gifts, I just got the Escalation Packs for all five factions and the official GF9 STA Game Mat, which should save a lot of measuring when setting up a game. I don't think I'll use it for games with more than 4 Players, but that hasn't happened yet. The Borg Assimilation should be here any day now. And the 3D Star Bases for the Cardassians and Ferengi are on order from GF9 for January!

Best of all, after having to cancel 3 times, my first 5 Player should finally be happening next week. I love it when a plan comes together!

whistle As a matter of fact, I'm about to pick up the DVD set for Game of Thrones Season 7, which I haven't seen yet.

Then I'll know something...

Don't forget the dice packs. You can't properly pimp this game with out faction specific custom dice!

We just played our first game with the expansions yesterday - it was really awesome. We played without the Delta Connexion and didn't see any Borg cubes, but the threat was there (and a couple of us were trying to antagonise a Conduit).

I don't think I want a mat, because those squares are poor for 3 or 5 players (perfect for 4). I plan to construct a round felted table-top instead.

I got a map printed from another players image here through Inked mats. Awesome for set up (3-5players) and I like the round option vs the square (I find it more balanced. It has different borders and set up zones for 3, 4 and 5 player (if you look close you can see them).

5 player games are awesome and the Borg are mean.

The image is 3139597.

I did the 48" custom map from Inked Gaming for $80. Well worth it.

How did you get it cut round? All the ones I see are square, or did you do that yourself ?

If you look closely it appears square, the circle space is surrounded by white boarder making it square.
