I think that this would be a great coop style card game in the same vein of the lotr lcg. What do you think?

 

Mixing and matching members of crews wouldn't be so far fetched because they all, apart from TOS, were in about the same time period. TOS can be saga expansions. 

 

Any thoughts?

I've been clamoring for a Star Trek cooperative LCG for awhile. I definitely think it's a great idea!

When they announced the current one that was what I was hoping for. Or an LCG that could do both...

I use to play Decipher CCG Star Trek 15 year ago……For me it was a bit boring….. But since FFG start to use some mechanic from old Decipher card game ( good example is new Warhammer lcg ) maybe we will see new version of Star Trek…..

 

What i really love to see is a DUNE lcg…….

A Star Trek LCG in Coop Style. For 1 - 4 (or 6) players?

 

I'am all in!!  ;)

 

That would be great! I love the Star Trek Franchise.

I would love another co-op LCG, but not Star Trek as I'm not the fan of it and I do not dig the theme.

Generell would be another co-op LCG great.

 

Wich theme you would prefer?

 

Star Trek would in my opinion perfect for a co-op game. You can use the different branches for Deck building.

 

- Star Wars (group of Jedi) will work too, but there is already a Star Wars LCG.

- Dune is more like Games of Thrones

- BattleTech would be great - but no co-op (Solaris VII for example)

 

There are not much theme they work great with co-op games

Call of Cthulhu/Warhammer(doesn't matter if Old World or 40k) Co-Operative LCG would be perfect for me.

I used to play the first edition of Deciphers Star Trek CCG, and I loved it, but finding opponents to play against became very difficult, so I stopped playing. I'd love a new Star Trek game, though. Something like LO|TR where you can play solo as well as co-op would be brilliant.

As much as I'd like to see a new coop LCG (that isn't Star Trek), I don't see Warhammer (fantasy or 40k) as a coop game. CoC may be a good call, though that can be done through some deluxe expansion for the existing CoC and not a standalone game.

There are plenty of RPG products of Warhammer both Old World and 40k, I can't see how making a co-operative LCG is a problem.

I think klaymen_sk wasn't commenting on a lack of source material, but on the style of the setting. Koop doesn't seem to fit in there.

And RPG's of Warhammer are exact proof that Co-Op fits. (that's because they're technically co-op, if you haven't guessed yet)

What does one imagine when they think a co-op star trek game could work? Going on away-teams together to solve interplanetary disputes or fight klingons? The repeated problem with making a game for Star Trek is that while it can inspire ideas for strategic space games, like the Decipher ccg, the heart of what makes star trek great isn't the characters or any setting, it is the ideas and allegories through the characters. What I'm saying is that anyone with the same kind of love for Star Trek as we seem to see in this LOTR game will hit a wall with never making something that is true to the source, that makes any sense as a star trek game outside of pictures of big space boats.

I get what you're saying. Loving Trek all my life, the big ethical and philosophical questions at the heart of great Trek is impossible to replicate in a game. Still, I think a cooperative LCG could take the "adventure" approach of LOTR LCG and adapt it into a "mission" format. The problem with many Trek games is they have too big a scale, whereas an LCG with constant expansions could take the time to develop individual missions/episodes with a developed story and throw in some different paths/conundrums for players to solve. From a mission focusing on exploring a new star system to stopping a Borg invasion, there's plenty there to make an interesting card game, if not allowing you to live out the show exactly.

So you like a pathfinder style co-op game for 40K and/or Fantasy. That will be work and FFG have the RPG rights....

 

Since for Fantasy don't come more AP's - that can be work...

Yes, you are right. I see it that way too

I'm confused because I can't quite understand what are you trying to say here. 

 

If you're talking about pathfinder advanture card game - no, I don't like anything like that in Warhammer setting. I would like a "real" cooperative card game set in any of Warhammer universes. By "real" I mean games like LCG's of FFG, not dice rolling fest.

Sure, but they are usually on a small scale (an elite squad, a small investigation group or so) and frankly, Warhammer is more about epic battles, so on a larger scale the coop won't work much.
