Sigh. It had to happen, I suppose. Just last night, I received a comment, pointing me over here.
For those of you who don’t go home with strange links, it takes you to a brand new board game coming out called Space Cadets. In this game, you take on roles such as…
The Captain. The Engineer. The Weapons Officer. The Helmsman.
Yes, all of these are roles in my own game. In addition, each person has a console in front of them representing their part of the ship.
In addition, this game looks really fun and awesome. I’d be happier if it didn’t.
As a result, I need some help from all of you. I now need to figure out what makes my game different, and doesn’t look like a rip-off.
To begin with, my game actually uses ships traveling around a map or tabletop, rather than being a bit more abstract like this is. It should play much more like a war game.
Secondly, it’s cooperative, as well as competitive, in that you have teams fighting against teams.
So… I need your help, readership! Help me steer the course out of this asteroid field! (Just never tell me the odds.)
