Richard Borg's Red Alert: Space Fleet

Thursday, 7 June 2018  |  Admin

Hey guys, 

Just a quick post. I sometimes browse Kickstarter looking for new projects that are interesting, and may be popular. I've just come across and backed at retailer level a game by Richard Borg of Command and Colours fame,  Red Alert: Space Fleet. 

It looks interesting, when I was younger I used to play Space Fleet by Games Workshop released in 1991. When Gothic was released in '99 I was already 4 years out of the hobby and had more interesting past times such as University, cars and clubbing. OK, I lied about University being interesting. 

Back on track, Red Alert is another ship combat game. From their Kickstarter page:

 

"RED ALERT allows two to six players to duke it out in Space using the opposing fleets of the Commonwealth Alliance and Rebel Confederation: battleships, cruisers, and destroyers, backed up by long-range fighters and the Fleet Commander’s all-important flagship. Each unit type has its own special capabilities."

The only downside to the game so far is that, obviously for ease of design and production, the ships are the same across both factions. 

As this is a Plastic Soldiers Company product, in the future I hope to also stock a selection of their Cold War kits to complement Team Yankee.
