Wow, tough game. This is a game that can easily be played with 1 to 7 players (with the expansion). The mechanics are unique in that there are not many games like this out there. I really enjoyed it as it took a lot of thinking and strategizing to play. There was also lots of planning ahead.

There are many things to do without the fiddliness and I like fiddliness. There are many different ways to lose so there are lots of things to work on to prevent that.

I really enjoyed the game. I would think it would be classified as a medium heavy game because of all the things you can do and must do to win.

Entertaining co-op game with a great theme. Figures are great and use the 'clix' rotaion sustem for character stats.

Despite this game's cool components, it took a long time before we finally played it. When we did, we had a terrific time first on the easy setting, then the hard setting.

If you've played this and weren't that impressed, be sure to play it on the Red level. Much tighter game. I liked it a lot. I might kick up the rating if it holds up. The highest level is clearly the "real game".

I enjoyed this, with a few caveats. It's the typical, tight Knizia design, with lots of interesting trade-offs and little rules grit. It feels like Lord of the Rings did, with good variability while retaining narrative cohesion.

However, this now being 2011 and not 1999, I do recommend that gamers and any Lord of the Rings or Pandemic veterans start at *least* on the Medium difficulty. Easy is just too easy and results in tension draining from the game later on.

The biggest issues here is probably a few major usability problems along with rules that are just a touch loose. The exact sequence of card play in starship combat is not as clear as it could be, but you can guess until we get clarification (it doesn't make that much difference - we played it to be as the same way as character challenges). More problematic though is type that is barely legible, with tiny font sizes in insufficiently contrasting colors. Some of the important data on the mission cards barders on unreadable if you are over 40. And look, I know it's WizKids, so you've got to have the clix pieces because that's what you do, but important unit statistics usually can't be seen, manipulating the pieces is a royal pain, and font sizes and icons are minuscule. A more traditional solution (like, a character card with a track) would have been far superior. The minis are great, but the clix are a bad solution to a non-existent problem in this context.

Anyway, usability problems aside, I enjoyed this and I think it'll be a welcome addition to our surprisingly limited stable of good cooperative games. Hopefully we'll get some expansions, as the game is clearly primed for them. If so, I hope we get some larger fonts.

I love co-ops! The clix figures are a really great way to keep track of stats. I like how the main-story plotlines and sidequests work. It tells a good story without sabotaging replayability. The difficulty is that if you play it correctly, it's really freaking hard on "medium". The last few times I taught it the group became very demoralized and I'm not sure I'll get anyone to play it again. oops! Other group members played it wrong the first time and it was way too easy. So this might be a two player game that we can occasionally get Steve's parents to play.
