NOTE: This upgrade pack is not a stand alone game and requires additional components for the various game pieces. However, if you include the Add-On's (Coins, Tokens, Markers, Dice, Cards, etc.) you will have a near complete copy of the game minus the game box and a few punchboard tokens.
This gives 1st edition owners of the game a chance to upgrade their game with 2nd edition components and includes a game board, 3 player mats, 2 player aids and a rule book. There are no other items included but you may include additional Add-Ons by checking items below.
GAME BOARD – We will be adding an alternate version of the game map on the back of the game board. This alternate version will have an updated background illustration and a few revised tracks. The overall goal is to provide a version that is similar to other popular wargames. The only real change, besides the layout and illustrations, is that we will be listing the sea routes onto the game board. We will give backers a chance to comment and add feedback on the design as it progresses.
(2) PLAYER MATS – The size of the player mats will be increased and we will be revising the design and layout, plus adding a black art paperback to the player mats. There is nothing wrong with the 1st edition mats. We are simply improving the component quality of these mats.
NEW PLAYER MAT – A player mat will be included in this pack to help track the strategy cards and various decks used in the game. This new mat will also have the black art paperback similar to the back of a game board. We will follow a similar design and layout for this mat as the other player mats.
(2) PLAYER AIDS – These reference sheets will be updated with any F.A.Q. or errata available.
RULES – The designer, Dan Berger, has documented and mentioned several FAQ and errata items that will be added to the rule book. A majority of these are simple clarifications to help new users more easily understand and get into the game. We will also be adding several new diagrams to help users understand various sections of the rules.
