October is going to be a busy month with Modiphius as we look to the final frontier with Star Trek Playtesting and make our way to Essen Spiel ’16!
STAR TREK ADVENTURES
Sign-ups for playtesting will be online on our website from Thursday 13th October – you can either sign up on our website or at our stand at Essen (Hall 2, Booth A127). The first playtest adventures are currently being written and pending approval should then be out for groups in the coming weeks!
Sign up at Essen and receive a Kirk or Picard miniature!
Here’s how play testing will work:
- If you sign up as a PLAYER without a group then you’ll be given our playtest rules to look over, inviting you to give feedback on them through our forms online. You’ll be updated as the play testing groups are, with new rules and all the tweaks and changes as we go! There will also be discussions on our forums about finding a group to play with and rules.
- If you sign up as a Games Master with a group of players to test with then we’ll give you scenarios to test different aspects of the rules with an online feedback system.
- Games Masters will also be able to select one of four starships they would like to adventure as! Each starship has its own unique missions that come together and interact with each other in something we’re calling a “Living Playtest”.
- U.S.S Lexington – A Constitution class starship, like the original U.S.S Enterprise.
- U.S.S Venture – A galaxy class vessel, like the U.S.S Enterprise – D, will have more of a cultural stance to its missions with some exploration and combat.
- U.S.S Thunderchild – An Akira class starship whose missions will be mostly tactical in nature, testing the combat rules, as well as exploration.
- U.S.S Bellerophon – An Intrepid class starship that will focus on science and exploration alongside conflict.
ESSEN SPIEL 2016
We’ll be making our way to Germany for Essen Spiel 2016 from 13th to 16th October and we hope we’ll see you at our stand – we’re in Hall 2, Booth A127! We’d also love your help, so if you are there and would like to help us out on the stand in exchange for some credit on our web-store then hit reply and let us know!
- Game Demonstrators – we’re looking for people who know ours games: Thunderbirds Co-operative Board Game and Airfix Battles. We’d like you to demonstrate those games on our stand to convention goers who are interested in those games but don’t know the rules yet.
- Stand Assistants – we’re also on the look out for assistants for the stand, either helping sell our products or taking e-mail sign ups.
Anyone helping out for a 3 hour session will get €20 credit on the stand or web-store!
MODIPHIUS ENTERTAINMENT Essen Spiel Community Party
We’ll be hosting a Community Party for all our backers, gamers and fans at Motel One, Kennedyplatz 3 45127 Essen on Saturday 15th October from 8pm.
There are free drinks, awesome announcements and even a chance to play our newly released Thunderbirds expansion: The Hood with game designer Matt Leacock playing the illusive villain! There’ll also be prototypes of Kung Fu Panda and Siege of the Citadel to try out and play test with our in-house designers!
Chris Birch, our publishing director, will be giving you a behind-the-scenes update about what’s coming up for our games including John Carter, Star Trek Adventures, Achtung! Cthulhu, Mutant Chronicles, Infinity and Conan.
You’ll also have another chance to sign up for the Star Trek Adventures Living Playtest and a chance to grab a miniature of either Captain Kirk or Captain Picard!
We hope to see you there!
