      How's things going over here? Anything new happening? :)

    5. Creator Justin on October 1

      Congrat Cody! You made Tom Vassels top 100 (#62) games:) also XIA is my very favorite game:)

      He's played like 3000 games of something like that soo it's pretty cool to break the top 100 your first try!!

    6. Creator Far Off Games on August 31

      Hey Justin!
      I am definitely planning on new tiles for an expansion!! I know it's the most requested thing I get!

      I did the new ship mini-expansion because I promised I would during the Kickstarter campaign (you can see on the campaign page). :)

      Cheers, -Cody

    7. Creator Justin on August 29

      Hey Cody! I would definitely back any XIA expansion:) but I think more tiles would add more than more ships? Just my thought:) thx again for the great game!! And if your ever interested in doing a game with someone,, I live in Washington a couple hrs away:) I've got all the cards, pieces, board but still need better art and someone like you who is great at production and details. God bless!

    8. Creator Far Off Games on August 24

      Heads up! Xia's reprinting is currently available for pre-order from our website!

      Thanks!! -Cody

      @Andrew: Those came out great!!! I can't believe that's really your first shot at miniature painting - I think you've got an eye for it! My own set still in primer-gray...*sigh* Trying to get ready for a new baby takes it's toll on one's hobbies... :)

    10. Creator Andrew Ronzino on August 18

      I posted some pictures on BGG of the three new P&P mini expansion ships that I painted up. I'm happy with how they turned out. Here's the link if you want to check them out:

    21. Creator Far Off Games on April 22, 2015

      @Kevin: Thanks man! Really cool to get nominated!! Wouldn't be possible without amazing backers such as yourself!! :D

    22. Creator Kevin B. on April 21, 2015

      Congrats on your multiple nominations for the Dice Tower Awards!! You certainly deserve it for this wonderful game!

    23. Creator Andrew Ronzino on April 10, 2015

      Ditto on what Shawn said!

    24. Creator Shawn Charney [TundraThunder] on April 8, 2015

      Thank you Cody for bringing us all together....and bringing us Xia! It's an outstanding Game that you can REALLY be proud of...I know that I am proud of the miniscule role that I played! It was a fun trip. Looking forward to your future project (alluded to on Xia's BGG page)

    25. Creator Far Off Games on April 6, 2015

      Just thinking about you guys and gals today! So very very thankful for you making Xia possible!!! :)

      Cheers, -Cody

    26. Creator John DiPonio on February 19, 2015

      Cody, you did good work on this game! My family has been having fun with it. You have the talent my good man so give it another go on a project, I am sure you will have loyal backers.

    27. Creator Justin on February 18, 2015

      Ps. this is my favorite game now! It doesn't feel competitive to me, (due to soo much dice rolling) but just so much fun! Excited for your next game Cody:) and please don't be shy to contact me if you need help play-testing, or want to develop another persons game.

    28. Creator Justin on February 18, 2015

      15 point 2.5 hrs..

    29. Creator Justin on February 18, 2015

      I activated the merchant every 2 player, and the other 2 every 4 players.. I just ran them and kept track myself:) as far as color I just went colorless (and used power grid as my markers),, it made exploration a little quick, but becuase of how long turns took it made people take maximum risks!! That made it really fun I died 3-4 times and 2 other players did as well. Great times:)

    30. Creator Far Off Games on February 9, 2015

      @Justin: Wow - 6 players would be huge, haha! What color did you use for the 6th player? How many points did you play to?

    31. Creator Justin on February 7, 2015

      Just played six players! It was a blast:)

    32. Creator IgneusManus on January 31, 2015

      @Shawn Charney [TundraThunder] Thanks Shawn! I would've missed that link if you hadn't posted it here.

    34. Creator Andrew Ronzino on January 17, 2015

      Double post, my bad.

    35. Creator Andrew Ronzino on January 16, 2015

      Thanks, Cody!

    36. Creator Andrew Ronzino on January 16, 2015

      Thanks, Cody!

    37. Creator MN Boardgamer on January 16, 2015

      Hi Cody. 25 plays down. Not bad for it just being January. So I was wondering about the mini expansion. Can I give someone a few bucks for this or... I kinda want more. ;)

    38. Creator Far Off Games on January 16, 2015

      Right you are Andrew! It's been far too long - I'll get right on it!

    39. Creator Andrew Ronzino on January 16, 2015

      As glad as I am to have Xia...I miss the Friday updates. The anticipation of Xia news always made my Fridays fun.

    40. Creator Far Off Games on January 7, 2015

      Awesome finds James and Brian! Really cool to see the Dice tower talking about Xia!! :-D

      Thanks for being a part!! :) -Cody

    41. Creator Brian Aslin on January 5, 2015

      Tom Vasel looks back at 2014 kickstarters including Xia. Look at 2014: Kickstarter:

    42. Creator James Cameron on January 4, 2015

      Thanks for the heads up about the podcast IgneusManus. They discuss Xia's components at 1'20'' and also praise the way the campaign was run overall (with which I'm sure we can all agree!)

    43. Creator Far Off Games on January 2, 2015

      @Dave: Awesome! Thanks for spreading the Xia love!! :D

    44. Creator Dave Griffin on January 1, 2015

      One of my friends played once, Loved it, and has bought himself a copy already☺

    45. Creator Andrew Ronzino on December 27, 2014

      Nevermind, Cody! The great people on BGG helped me out. :-D

    46. Creator Andrew Ronzino on December 27, 2014

      @Cody - There's a rules question I had that I would love to get your opinion on if you get a chance. Thanks!

    47. Creator Nicolas Theriault-Langelier on December 26, 2014

      I don't know if you guys noticed but Xia made it to Tom Vasel top 10 games of 2014.

      Great work Cody!

    48. Creator Far Off Games on December 26, 2014

      Happy Christmas!!!!
