So, I haven’t finished my July (dating back to June) pickups but I must do today’s (so I’ll start the August thread).As many who know me know, I have a crap-load of Star Trek: Attack Wing stuff. It got gathered because I have a few Star Trek themed space combat games (particularly Federation Commander [& Star Fleet Battles]) and I wanted to tart them up with some minis, AND Good Games were selling the individual ships from ST:AW for $10 and then $5 (& ultimately $1). Once I’d collected about 20 ships (which also came with cards and counters) I figured I should also be able to play the game they were originally designed for. I’d seen the core set around BEFORE I’d made that decision, but when I wanted it there were none to be found. I bought some seperate bits (movement templates, dice etc) to add to the PDF rule book and printable damage cards so I COULD play the game in its own right, but it was a little bit of a fudge...
ST:AW wasn’t that popular here (hence the price slash), but it must have been popular in the US because last year they released another (rebooted but altered) core set. Suddenly it was back on, and I was willing to possibly even pay FULL PRICE to make my play of the game legit! But I saw no copies of the new core set - of course, Australia hates it!
But today at Epping Good Games, in the last spot I looked (floor level, presented sideways) there was the new 2017 core set for around 60% off ($31.20)
Done deal! Now I have the Galaxy class Enterprise-D (Picard’s original Enterprise, before he carelessly crashed it!).
But you know what I ended up light-on in all this ship gathering? My favourites, the Romulans! And wouldn’t you know it, the principal change from original core set to 2017 core set was the removal of the Romulan ship it contained (other ships were added, but still!)
But what’s that on the Good Games sale shelf next to the core set?
Romulan Faction Pack! Awesome.
Also about 60% off ($22.40). SOLD! (Actually I got the two for $50)
We MUST play some time...
(Oh, and they had a second Starter Set on the shelf if anyone is interested!)
