Good old sits. I only know one other person who plays this game and he tought me how to play back at wohag. It seems that it is quite notorious in gaming circles for being about three times as complicated as battletech. However if there is any interest out there i will see what i can do about getting the rules. Unless someone already has them. Rolling Eyes

On another note, care to link some info or explain a little? I've never even heard of it.

You control a ship (or fleet if you are that brave). in three dimenstions. shooting missiles, turning dodging... Your dogfighting with giant space battleships and the game mechanics take physics into account. I have played it a few times and only have a vague idea on how to master the hole thing and at the same time it is very intuitive. Mixes pen and paper kind of math with miniatures. Involved but rewarding. Based in the "honor Harrington" universe. I i find a good deal on the boxed set and no one else on the forums plays it, i will try to do a demo game.

If anybody else has played this and can explain it better, please spread the enlightenment.

Is this the game that has the specialize little blocks to show the ship angles? If so that and the applied physics is enough to get me interested.
