This sale has been going on and off for the last several days, but I thought I would post it for anyone else that missed it. It is currently $6 lower than a previous front page deal from a few weeks ago.
opinion/explanation on the game: This is just a starter set. It theoretically has enough ships for 2 people to play. If you want to go play with people at your local game shop you will need to pick up additional ships to play. For most local events you will probably need 1-4 more ships (depending on the build). This core set has the dice, range rulers, and rule books you need to play.
These models are amazing. I was big into micro machines back in the 1990's and these models are of equal or higher quality.
This game (like most hobbies) is a bit of a money pit. You will always end up wanting to pick up one more ship or upgrade. I love the game to death, but wanted to atleast put this warning out there. I have entirely too much money tied up in this game.
