Centauri Saga v1.5 and LEGACY Expansion!

Posted by Vesuvius Media Ltd (Creator)

Hello everyone!

You haven't heard from us in a while, but that doesn't mean we haven't been busy! Last year, we made you a promise. A promise that this was just the beginning. So here we are, back again with Centauri Saga v1.5 and LEGACY Expansion!

Mark your calendars! On Saturday, April 8, 2017, a new Kickstarter campaign will launch to bring to life the v1.5 Upgrade of the Core Game, reprint of the 5-6 Player Expansion and a brand new LEGACY Expansion!

v1.5 Core Game Upgrade

During this Kickstarter, backers will unlock and receive upgrades for the core game. These upgrades include but are not limited to:

  • New punch board/cardboard player mats that are as thick the hexagons
  • Reprint of various cards with corrections (spelling mistakes, errata on the rules)
  • New version of the rule book. The rule book will now be split into two books: The "Core Rules" and the "Scenarios". It will also be revised to include the latest errata.
  • More Commanders
  • More Events
  • New Scenarios

New Miniatures

We managed to unlock many models during the previous campaign, so this time we will push the game even more! We will try to unlock:

The Colony Ship

Colony Ship Model

and the dreadful RAVAGER!




 These are the last two punch board tokens in the current core game!

Centauri Saga Season 1: A LEGACY Game!

The main focus of the new campaign will be the production of Centauri Saga Season 1: LEGACY Game!

WE LOVE Legacy games (remember, we are board gamers ourselves!) and have found a great way to integrate this style of play into Centauri Saga. However, the thing we don't like about Legacy games is their extremely high price. That being said, we have done everything in our power to find a way to overcome this issue while still bringing the excitement of Legacy to Centauri Saga .

Our solution...

We are very proud to announce that Centauri Saga Season 1: LEGACY Game will be an EXPANSION to the core game (not a stand-alone game you need to buy from scratch)!

With each new Season, you will expand the components of the core game (with new miniatures, cards, and scenarios), but also have the chance to play a Legacy Campaign (opening secret packages, working your way through an exciting adventure, and playing numerous sessions where the choices you make in one affect the next ones).

The LEGACY expansion will follow the same unique combination of characteristics our core game has - 4X, Co-Op and playable with 1 to 4 players! Yes you will be able to solo the entire campaign!

On Saturday, April 8, get ready to blast through the Jumpgate and join the fight in our galaxy and beyond!

      That sounds like a good move. If I'm only paying for the upgraded and new components, I might be tempted.

      Also, I might have been a bit harsh with my mold comments. I took a look at the capital you raised with Cosmic Pioneers, and it was much lower than I expected. A good mold can cost almost as much as you made in total. I pledged for Centauri Saga because it looked interesting and because you were a small studio. Based on the other projects I back, it's easy to forget that not every game is raising millions and being done by a huge studio. I hope the new campaign goes well.

      I just wanted to say:
      Woohoo! This sounds fantastic! Count me in!

      I got Centauri Saga through your Kickstarter and my brother and I love it! I will be very interested to see what you have come up with.

      @japester: You will not have to "re-buy" the core game. There will be two pledges, one for new backers (that do not have the 1st Edition of the game) and one for the ones that already have the game either from KS or a conference.

      +1 for an expansion pack for those of us who got Centauri Saga 1.0.

      I'll check it out, but funds are really tight.

      Also, just pointing out that the mold costs for the colony ships have already been paid. You took care of that with your Cosmic Pioneers KS. So making them a stretch goal here seems cheap. Using an existing mold costs pennies.

      I'll be waiting. ;)

      If you had an upgrade pack where we could just buy the corrected cards, useful player mats, and new manuals, I'd be interested. Not sure I want to re-buy the whole game just to get those bits (I don't play it enough to want the new items).

      Will be on board. :)
