Heya Kickstarters! Fallow here!
The designer of the Imperial Crusade series –James Kato- has brought me on board to assist him in making Imperial Crusade: Freedom the best game it can be. There’s so much cool stuff happening I can’t wait to give you the details but for now here’s a rough overview:
We are rewriting the rules with an eye toward clarity, correctness and consistency of terminology.
We are working on rules changes to address some issues that came up with Armada and to make the game play smoother with less math and more fun.
We are balancing past, present and future factions so you can battle with fleets from any faction of the Imperial Crusade series. James has assured me that he intends ALL versions to work together. There will be ships more powerful than others and some combos favored over others but nothing should be made obsolete by power creep. (Thank the maker!)
James has also empowered me to interface with you to convey information and take your questions and feedback.
It might be because James tends to be a quiet man while I LOVE to talk about games all day long. J
I’m basically the ‘Speaker for the James’ and like Winston Wolfe from Pulp Fiction “I solve problems” so You gotta question, you come ta me capisce?
My name is Mike Matecha, better known as Fallow on Boardgamegeek.
I’m a freelance game design consultant (emphasis on the ‘free’) but more importantly I’m an avid (and obsessive) gamer who only works with games I really like and can get behind. So what does that mean to you? It means that besides improved rules and gameplay, I’m going to find ways for you to pimp this game after it’s in your hands.
James has been working on setting up a Boardgamegeek page for Imperial Crusade: Freedom (ICF) but they have been backlogged and likely won’t have it approved until after the Kickstart ends so in the meantime I will be posting on the Imperial Crusade: Armada (ICA)page
For those Kickstarters who do not frequent BGG I will be posting updates here but specific and lengthy discussions are better hosted on the BGG forums so check it out!
Post ‘em here, over at Boardgamegeek, PM me on BGG, or email me at email@example.com
Exciting stuff happening here!
