Freejumper at the GIMPS
« on: May 28, 2016, 06:44:34 AM »
Lots of very varied Freejumper ships on the table tonight... All of a sudden good ship design is king :)..one of the great things about this game is how realistically it portrays the first time you encounter other vessels.. It's all well and good having good weapons but if the enemy has a superior computer system that can hack into your system then all of a sudden you can be manipulated in all kinds of ways :)..Freejumper is one of those games that after playing once you come away with the feeling that you can get back to the blueprints and design a better ship

Lots of old school space ships - Babylon 5, XL5, Space 1999 , some that I couldn't place (did expect to see a TB3), and some great scratch built models -- looks fantastic. If I thought that I could find an opponent I would get the rules and have a go.

Disappointed that the DIY cards don't have a background - I normally print Sam's stuff on 250-300gsm photo stock so full color is great.

If I gave them a background I'd get a million complaints about how I'm trying to destroy people's printers.

I manipulate the images and got 2 up on a 6x4 or 4up on a 5x7

my local office shop prints a 6x4 for 10cents and a 5x7 for 30 cents - all on photo stock, so dont even have to use my printer (although I can)

The great thing about Freejumper is the freedom you have when designing your ship and getting away from the Star wars/Star Trek stranglehold :)
