Alright, FFG, how about a new flight path game for us?

Recommended Posts

while you are sitting there saying, no, absolutely not, no game to compete with this one.

 

I say to you Munchkin-ize this game.

 

make it so ridiculous its fun. goofy looking ships and abilities to make us laugh and cry when they destroy us.

 

no one would be arguing, that ship is OP, because its not supposed to be balanced its supposed to be funny.

 

you could have a card "Black Hole" pick an enemy ship, its gone.

 

 

man, the possibilities would be endless and endlessly funny. please oh please make something like this or I will have too.

 

have a card change the physics of the game, like target ship must fly all maneuvers backwards.

 

oh man this game just wrights itself.

 

 

what do you guys think. obviously this would never have a tournament game, but a good friendly laugh between frenemies.

I do like the idea of a flightpath game that isn't tied to a licensing property, I think that would allow for a lot more design freedom than something that needs to fit the themes of the empire & rebellion era. A single box with a variety of ships and upgrades, maybe no factions either, something more casual "beer & pretzils" than tournament gaming. Oddball mechanics would work well for that, with pilot & upgrade abilities more akin to something out of Super Mario Cart or Gamma World.

A Flight Path Battlestar Galactica game would RULE!!!  They already have the license!  I am totally on board, although I am not so sure they have a wide enough ship base in the fluff to draw from as they do from the Star Wars universe.

 

I also wouldn't mind seeing something of their own creation...some new Sci-Fi universe with several Alien factions to chose from.

This would be such a limited game though... not a lot of ships there.. fighter ships that is.. it would be done in a couple of months.. sure we get to play it, but what could they do.. new viper packs with new upgrades.. maybe.. or a one off boxed set with a dozen or so vipers and cylons and all you need to play in one box.. maybe put out an expansion every few months with some new fluff.. bout it really

I, personally, would love for them to be developing a flight path star fighter game in the twilight imperium universe. Unfortunately, such a game would be direct competition with x-wing, so won't happen while they are still doing x-wing.

A car wars style armed racing game would work pretty well though. Different enough to not compete with their other games, lots of room for expansions and with Steve Jackson games working on a new version of car wars the genre is likely to get a big boost in popularity. They could even come out with track expansions like formula de used to.

That would be awesome. And the sneak peak Phil (?) released suggests they might be going this path.

{pun intended}
