Yes Tom rendered a harsh verdict on the game. But, there is some truth in it never the less. I did a review myself and came up on a 6,5/10. Some of my major issues are similar to Tom's. For instance Photo-shopped Artwork, Backer-names printet over game components, complex iconography and balancing issues with some of the action cards. It's still a decent strategy game. It's a fresh almost Go-esque aproach and we had fun playing it each time we brought it to the table. Thats why I came up wit a final rating of 7/10 in the end.
As a reviewer, we're on the easy side. And judging a game is much easier than developing one. On the other hand, if people do not like parts of your product, it's always worth considering why. Don't be mad/sad. Instead keep on with desinging games :)
Here is the link to my review on my channel (in case you understand german): https://www.youtube.com/watch…
Tom has given bad reviews to games that I thought were really good and good reviews to games I thought were bad. I have made it a habit of not listening to reviews anymore. I like to make up my own mind whether or not I like something or not. I don't need someone else telling me how I should think.
What he didn't get is that HEXPANSE is an abstract game more like chess but with a space theme on it and multiple mechanics.Tom entered play waiting to see a 4x game or something like that.That's why he's disapointed.On my side, I LOVE this game because I'm a good chess player ;) You have to think ahead with the cards you have.The only downside I have to say is one that Tom said is the different iconnography on the cards and what they mean.Your always in the book to see what it means.But I guess with many games under your belt,you wind up knowing them all.Overall I'm not disapointed in this game and will post my playthrough on my youtube channel that's in french and will leave a positive review on this game and explaining CLEARLY what kind of game this is.@Korona games just for overtaking this HUGE task on the process of making a board game I give you a judgment of ''AWSOME GAME'' ;)
Unfortunately, Tom expected a different game, an epic space war with devastating ships. This is an other, but still good game.
If you like Hexpanse, please tell your feelings about it! Now it seems that is a piece of shit.
A review from Tom Vasel of Miami Dice is up on their YouTube channel.
@Joel: I would like to reassure you: everyone of the backers who paid for the shipping got the game. It seems you completed your order in pledge manager well after of deadline thus caused this problem. We are going to arrange it in private message.
Hi there, like some others I also did not recieve my copy of the game
I'm confused as to where I go to fill out this additional information. Thx.
@Sonny: You have missed the pledge manager, so your order is incomplete. Please write us in pm.
Hi - I still haven't received a copy of the game. Thx.
@Kenny: You have forgotten to complete your order in pledge manager. Please write us in pm.
@Arukoto. Ken, you've completed your order, I guess was some trouble at Happyshops, and we look after next week. Write in private!
Hows the shipping going? Done with shipping in Europe yet? Missing/waiting on shipment info...
Hello. I haven’t received my game nor shipment information. Any news for my copy? Thanks
@Phil Schmidt: your games was shipped at 4/19, it should have arrived yet. I sent your tracking number in pm.
@Christopher Smith: thanks, man. It's our job.
@Quentin: thanks for warning, this was a technical failure, we corrected.
Thanks Korona Games for your add-ons translation in French.
I notice that you also put it on your website. As you put it at the same place of the main rules of the game, these one are no longer avalaible in French.
For me it's OK mais I don't know for the other.
Ty again for your game.
I wrote them a direct question about not having received my game. Within a day they explained that I had forgotten to full out my backerkit and arranged for me to pay the shipping and now my game is on the way. They took care of my mistake very quickly. Well done!
Hello. I haven’t received my game or any shipment information. Should I be concerned?
@JEff: Unfortunately, you are but the game is on the way to you. We send tracking number to you.
@Quentin: You are right, that's a pity, but we don't have yet a French translator to do it. Anyone for this job?!
Am I one of the unlucky ten?
Hey Korona, before leaving this project can you answer about this point :
mid-February, you said "- All the translations are uploaded to our website, but unfortunately, we do not have a French translation of the add-ons yet. ".
Any news about the add-on translations ?
Thanks for your work.
Sent a message. Got five copies of the game. Return message so we can work this out. Thanks.
@Dave "crash": We are on the solution to compensate you for this accident.
@Antonio: Eventually, you've reached us. We are discussing your issue in private.
How am I to PM you guys? Also, just FYI, I *did* fill out the form you're saying I didn't fill out.
I've heard nothing about receiving my copy and I find that disconcerting. Is there ANY news about when I will receive my copy?
Still nothing, spoke to the mail office and no clue as to what is going on. Sad I was really excited about this one
@Vincent: Your game is on the way. Write us in pm.
@Dra9ons: There are no crater markers in the game.
Hi Korona Games, nearly 3 weeks since you mentioned Happyshops would send my copy of hexpanse, do you have any updates on your side ?
We tried twice the game and check to enhance the difficulty and give more opportuinities.
Checking the SG, it appears that I miss Crater Markers in my box. Anyone else?
And what are the rules for the craters markers?
The player sheet is on our webpage:
@Tim Ware: That's absolutely right, time passed without sending, but it seems now was shipped.
@Antonio M. Rosario: You have forgotten to confirm your order in pledge manager, that's simple reason you haven't received yet. Write us in pm!
@Leonard: Have you checked your expansion inside the gamebox? It should be there.
@Korona I sent an email this morning to your @gmail.com concerning a missing expansion. Turns out I'm a meat head and forgot I ordered it. I was too excited to play Hexpanse lol.
I'd like to know when I should expect to receive my copy. I'm in Brooklyn, NY, USA. I hear it's shipping but have gotten no update about when I should be on the lookout.
You responded to a comment of mine on the last update on March 8th saying "Yes, Tim. Wingo has promised us to send this week. Then will take some more time to get to New Zealand." That was three weeks ago. Now he's still saying he's sending them tomorrow, Please keep on his case and ensure this happens this week.
@Tim Ware: We are working on this update, the only reason was not launched yet, that our graphic designer is very busy. But we are going to release this week, hopefully very soon.
About replacements: Wingo has just promised us to ship it for us today. Then we are packing and forward to all who needs. It's about three weeks yet.
@Tom Matty/Korona: Totally agree! It took me nearly an hour/hour and a half to work out what was what because it was all included together in the box. Any idea when replacements parts will be going out, Korona?
Still holding out hope the game comes. Still no sign of it sad panda
@Tom Matty: You are right, we are preparing a list with pictures and send it in update this week.
@Vincent Briglia: You closed your order after European shipement realased and this the reason you haven't received yet, but we arrange it with Happyshops now.
I live in Denmark (Europe) and still haven't received my game. I did pay for shipping quite late in the process, but would like an update :)
@Korona Games - It would be nice to provide some list, images, or other easy way to ensure Admiral backers got all the KS and ad- ons. I really don't have time to sort through the box and all the cards and bits and pieces trying to compare it all to the pictures and comments on the KS page.
I really appreciate companies that present KS stuff clearly and package those items separately. That way I can know right away if anything is missing and not 6 months down the road when we finally go to play the expansion and, ooops....that KS piece didn't ship.
I wish my game came tracking # says delivered but nothing seen at my place or any of the neighbors, I hope everyone else has better luck than I, I'm just not going to be able to play it.
I've had a chance to play several games and this is a hit at our game group. The Admiral level is by far the most fun for us. Hidden objectives are great :).
I hope to see some more expansions in the coming year or so!
@Robert Hill: You might notice since then, all exclusives - including addons - are packed inside the boxes.
Got mine awhile ago at an old work address. (I changed offices)
Just opened the packing box. Quick, and potnetially dumb question. Are the exclusives in the box itself?
Great news for delivering games everywhere!
@Ryan Senft: Warlords start the game in the reserve, and costs one action to put them on board.
So we played the game and a big question I had was do you start with the warlord on the planet or do you deploy later.
One arrived in Central Oregon! So excited to take it to game night tomorrow night. Everything looked great. All punch cards were cut through and my one expansion was in the box as ordered :).
received mine here in Quebec today.Very well packaged and just waiting to get that baby on the table.Thanks @koronagames for the secure shippping.
USA New Mexico - received the Admiral's Edition yesterday Mar 8, 2018. Never got a shipping email but the game was well packed and arrived in great shape.
@Dave "crash": We need your backer's name and send you tracking number if you write in private.
@Shane: There is a complete list of content here, at campaign page. You can send the picture of tokens in private.
