Greetings!

It is my pleasure to announce that Aliens: This Time it's War will be published around November 2011 by the clever folks at White Goblin Games, publishers of many quality games.

The game has been re-themed, for obvious considerations, into an Old West setting, with some additional cards you will not have seen before.

You can find it here (make sure you subscribe for updates): Revolver.



This is fantastic news, I'm sure you'll agree.

I can testify that the art is of exceptional quality, and a great deal of care is being taken with the graphic design.

As for the future of the game, expansions are planned, bringing you different game experiences through funky changes in battlefields, cool characters, and other Top Secret stuff.

Of course, expansions depend on the success of the main game.

I would also like to thank all those who have supported my Aliens fan-project. I'm sure you will be pleased that a wider audience will soon be able to enjoy my game.



So, with all that in mind, I will be removing the file-links to my Aliens game in 4 weeks time. After that juncture, folks will have to await the arrival of
Revolver.

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

Congratulations! Look forward to owning this version and comparing it to my beloved copy of Aliens: This Time It's War.

Congrats Mark! I too wish it could be the same theme, but obviously it cannot. I will definitely check it out when it is released!

I play games not to win, it's the gathering that's important - Thanks for the tip Cate108!

Big congrats Mark! It must be huge for you. Yeay for me as now I got to play your game as it's now being properly published, although it's a re-themed. The price I need to pay for the Aliens: This Time it's War (from artscow) just didn't do the justice for a student like me. Since White Goblin Games will be publishing Revolver, I believe it will be readily available (locally) once it's released.

Again, congrats!

Congrats Mark! Have enjoyed the Alien game and the Thing came, so will be sure to pick up a copy of the Wild West themed game (one of my other favorite themes).

I also believe it will be available from the start in four languages: Dutch, English, French, and German.

Mark,

Wonderful news - very well deserved too, every time Aliens hits the table, everyone "gets" the game within a few turns, and every games we've played has had a level of tension around it (no cakewalks here !)

I notice some people still enquiring about a PDF of the cards in another thread. I know you don't have this. It occurred to me I could do this with my set of cards (can't vouch for quality / accuracy though, my scanner is only OK), but really wanted you wishes on this; a digital copy = a copy floating about the internet forever, and not sure if that's a conflict of interest for you.

Feel free to PM me, or reply here (otherwise I'll probably assume best not to scan). In any case, might find my scanner doesn't produce anything useful for other players to make their own copies - a lot of "scanned copies" of games I've found over the years have been vastly sub-par and I've no expertise to suggest me and my flatbed can do anything better.

Again, well done for the publishing deal. Very well deserved, and I'm probably looking at a set (to play with those who don't quite "get" the aliens theme !)

Ben, feel free to upload the files here.

I think any impact it might have on the Old West game would be negligible.
