      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Is there any point in getting a second Tantive?

29 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone thinks getting a second Tantive is worthwhile... Thinking of running epic play with two to shake things up.

 

Any thoughts?

Officially, Rules wise, you can't. Tantive costs 3 epic points, and you only get 5 to spend. Nothing stopping you doing it at home or whatever, but for epic tournament play, it's not allowed.

I'd say you're better off holding onto your cash until imperial huge ships come out. :)

I bought a (cheaper) one on EBay for a custom repaint, and to allow home games with big fleets.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/390708992686?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

 

Above auction is not mine, FWIW, but it arrived in 4 days, mint in box.  $50.99 including shipping was a deal.

 

Not everything has to be tournament approved to have fun with it.

You can outfit one to the gills with combat stuff, and the other one as a command ship. Don't try to do two of the same ships, lots of the required cards are unique.  I mean you can, but the effectiveness is decreased, plus, why would you need all that firepower?

No, there is no point.

 

At least there isn't if you don't find yourself playing totally-casual games in which you go full epic. Given the relative rarity of epic games overall (in my experience, YMMV), the CR-90 may be a great white elephant.

 

(Hey, that goes along with the space cow and space whale imagery... except that whales are larger than elephants. But, it's clear that the Transport is whale-shaped, so I'm not .... nevvamind.)

 

So, I would only get a second one if it just really tickles your fancy. That may be all the point you need. But, coming here to rationalize such a decision is probably not the best way to convince yourself. Then again, if you buy it at your FLGS - I say: DO IT!!

I agree wholeheartedly. You obviously want to buy a second one, so go ahead and buy it  :P

Repaint it and run it on the Imperial side

Then put Vader crew on it :-P

 
Doom Corvette!

 I am currently using my CR90 Corvette as a proxy for the DP20...

I'm going to try to find the time to play test this version this week.
I meant to get the crippled side done some time today but got distracted.
We have played four games with the CR90 so I feel good about getting it right.
 
I was going to try as crew
Tactician
Mara Jade
Rebel Captive
 
But I thought that was too specialized for a trial run.
So I'm going to go with
Darth Vader
Tactician
Fleet Officer
 
Also not going to go with double concussion missiles,
probably Cluster in the front and Ion Pulse in the back.

You could EASILY sell the extra unique upgrades. People would probably pay through the nose for that C-3P0

I don't know about "through the nose", but I do need to find someone parting with their extra unique crew cards.

Two can legally fielded on the same side in Team Epic.  I don't know why you would ever want to do that, and I wouldn't suggest it is a good idea but that is the only reason for owning 2.
