Terrain in Supremacy? Continue reading What’s On The Horizon?
The time traveler says that in 2019 a nuclear war will start between the current superpower the USA and North Korea…
…This war will then lead to World War 3 in 2020.
The Vulcan Science Directorate has determined that time travel is impossible. I remain open minded, but skeptical.
China aiming for ‘GLOBAL DOMINATION by 2020 with INVASION plan that risks war with US’
The good news is they seem content to win a timed game via points!
Today my mailbox was graced with the latest Supremacy 2020 expansions from Command Post Games. For those who don’t know. These are all new units to add to our arsenal – Fighters, Bombers, Carriers, Subs, MBTs, and SLBMs.
Once the rules sink in and I get a game or 2 under my belt, I can do a more thorough review. For now, my first impressions:
This is a more thorough rules Q&A that I have compiled from the CPG website, the forums at the BGG, and personal e-mail correspondences with Marshall Barrington (Supremacy 2020’s Commander in Chief). It’s a lot of “cut & paste” with minimal editing for clarity or brevity. The answers are 99.9% Marshall’s exact words.
This is not an official document, but it has Marshall’s approval:
“Yes, this looks pretty good”
Supremacy 2020 is not short on expansions by any means.
So Far We have:
- New Player Factions (Brazil, Middle East, Terrorist)
- New Scenarios (WWIII, ACWII)
- Non-Player Factions (Minors, Fortuna)
- New Conventional Forces (MBTs, Fighters, etc)
- New Strategic Forces (Bombers & SLBMs)
- Accessories (Diplomatic Kit, Component upgrades, etc).
As well as:
- Biological/Chemical/Cyber Warfare (in development)
- Miniatures Of War (in development)
- Officers (Field Marshal Program exclusive)
But with 3 years to go before apocalyptic 2020, I think there’s time for 1 or 2 more.
So what kind of Supremacy 2020 expansion do you want CPG to work on next?
Disclaimer – the category title “Democracy” is just for fun. Results will have zero bearing on what CPG does or does not choose to produce in the future.
I will be running a Supremacy 2020 demo for International Table Top Day in association with 902 Tabletop Gaming! 902 Gaming is a private group, but guests are welcome – contact me if you want an invite.
The event runs from 1000 hours – 2200 hours (2017/04/29). Supremacy 2020 time slots TBA.
Location – Dartmouth NS (contact me for specifics)
This event is meant to cater to the gamer in you vs the typical Tabletop day events where the general public is invited to try designer games. Other entities are taking care of building the gaming community with various public events around town. Our event is to provide a venue where you can play those longer games you normally don’t have the time or like minded players to enjoy. We aren’t trying to compete with other events, just offering something different. The games library at this event will also reflect this.
