So, it’s off to a great start! With the Kickstarter feature that notifies followers about new projects, we had supporters within a minute of pushing the start button. That was a thrill. As I type this,very early Wednesday morning, it's well over halfway to goal already.

My thanks to everyone who is helping me to bring back this classic. It’s about to turn 45 years old, and it totally deserves to be on today’s shelves. Now, with your support, it will be!

We’ve gotten some questions, so a beginning FAQ is in place.

The current plan is to preview the game at Origins; we don’t expect it to be available for sale before then (we will not sell it at a convention before we ship it to our backers).

      I had the tube version and now have the flat box version. So happy that this is coming back and very pleased with the size upgrade. *SQUEEEE!*

      My first version of this came on a Mylar hex grid rolled in a shipping tube with China markers. It quickly became a favorite at our FLGS. We later used the rules for our Traveller Ship to Ship battles. My fingers are crossed that you can bring the magic back.
