      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

Can you terra form alien planets?

3 posts in this topic

I was wondering, alien planets would be the ideal thing to terraform so can you terraform them? I'm not sure where i read it but I thought somewhere it said that you could only terraform water and food planets.

You are correct, you may only terraform water and grain planets.

The only thing a terraformer does is score you 4 points when you build it, so I'm not sure why terraforming an alien world would be better than terraforming any other.

Because you can't build anything else on an alien planet unless you want points, so you might as well just do that. That would be a very interesting game though, just building a factory on a water and a grain source, and then terraform as many planets as you can, and then play the score card. Which would give you 3 points for  every terraformer you have, and 3 points for being in the lead which you probably will be. And then if you wanted to build another colony you could always trade a few water or grains. I think I'll try it out next time I play, and then I'll post for you to see how it went
