Updated GSF website

Woot! The GSF website is updated! Finally! No more referencing the Kickstarter.

Looks like it still needs a bit of work (still using prototype card artwork, etc). Understandable as the GtG team has a lot happening right now.

I guess they felt that they needed to get 'er done now that actual people could actually be playing the game at home now.  Looks pretty good so far.

Yeah, there will definitely be some visual and content improvements over the next month or so, but at least we now have the preliminary stuff live!

This doesn't jive with the rulebook in my copy... I hope the updated rules show up online soon.

What kind of discrepancies are you seeing, dragonlordged?

I did notice some of the art in the gameplay section is older and hand-drawn...

@dragonlordged

The actual physical rulebook is definitely correct! We will be looking at the GSF website carefully to find discrepancies, but if you see any and want to post them here, that would definitely be appreciated!

Once I get home from work and have both the gsf rulebook and a computer that can copy/paste better than my phone, I'll see what I can do.

In the meantime, page 4 talks about a track the flagship moves along before coming into play. I don't think my rules talk about this and I don't think my opposition panels have such a track. There was also a lot of stuff about a discard pile (rather than recycling).

Yeah I see that looking over the website. Joel was working from an old copy of the rules - I'll get him updated copy asap.

So this seems a good place to ask. Since the game is selling does that mean Kickstarters will be getting them soon-ish? I'd love to hear the game should arrive "any day now" laugh

We had a few copies that we flew from China to PAX East, and did Kickstarter pickups there. The rest are on a boat in the Pacific, and should arrive some time in mid May.

Yea, just reread the KS and found that out. Still thanks for the response. Now I just need to pretend it is May cheeky

Paul-- thanks so much for updating the GSF website.

I can now confidently forward the link and not feel the need to add a disclaimer about the Kickstarter.  Great job!

 

Incidentally, I just joined your forums.  I hope you don't mind too much.

I noticed 2 things about the webiste:

1) It calls the Opp "Bareg Threll Syndicate" but shouldn't it be "Bareg Threllian Syndicate"?

2) The icon in the tab is your website provider (evil rain drop), not GtG's

Thanks!

I changed #1, and emailed Joel about #2!

If you see anything else strange or that needs updating about that site, please let me know!
