Got to launch lots of Satellites this year as well as a lunar Flyby.
Got to keep an eye out on what and how much you produce in the way of hardware otherwize you end up having to cut back on your missions and ultimatly loose out on PP. I ended up with more of what I did not need and stuff all of what I did need.

A rule for scrapping/selling off excess hardware would be nice but Thor explained his reasons for not including it so I'll leave it at that.

..... onwards to manned missions !


Thanks for the report bud! :tu

It seems the reason the testers are running into problems is that they are not watching their budget figures well enough. You, Mav, and all of the other testers, have gotten caught in the same way. So it is not just an isolated problem, but seems to be endemic to the game system. Is it because there are not enough reminders, as in every sheet, of the budget numbers? Or is it something else?

I kinda figured a logistics officer like you would not have gotten bitten by the same problem, but I guess since you do this number crunching thing as a living, I suspect you try to avoid that in your leisure activities. :bs



Cheers, Thor

Dear Game Master Thor,

This year I learned that I need to pay attention to astronaut recruitment and pay closer attention to current and projected research levels when planning missions.

I also need to find the time to post news articles to announce all the interesting things we've done this year.

Your faithful playtester,
--Mav

Lol, thanks for the guffaw bud! Thanks for your report! :tu



Cheers, Thor

Lots of bad things could have (and a few did) this turn regarding critical failures. While I am grateful for Thor's " handwavium " , I would have accepted the kick in the teeth and soldiered on. I think that Thor has the CF's in place with the new rules. Looking forward to testing out the Astronaut portion of the game over the next few game years.

Thanks for the report bud! I too look forward to the next stage of testing! :ac
