I got a cousin that plays Robotech and he gave me the new rule book. At first I thought he was talking about Battletech. But not the same.

Anyone out there that can give me a thumbnail sketch?

There are a bunch of new board and card games out for Robotech.

There’s also the miniatures game that failed due to Palladium Books’ misuse of the kickstarter money.

Another company is taking preorders for miniatures.

I -love- Robotech. LOVE it. I played he old Palladium RPG a ton back in the day. But I have no interest in any of the games I’ve seen. They all look cheaply made, badly designed and generally slapdash.

My cousin has a resin printer and all the model specs, so he’s printing his own. Should have quite a set soon. I’m interested in how it plays.

Are you talking about the miniatures rules put out by Pallidum a few years ago? I have a buddy who kickstarts lots of Sci-fi miniatures games. He got this one and we played once. I recall being very disappointed in the rules, there were several questions about traits and numbers on the cards that were not referenced in the rules. You'd have some sort of keyword with a number next to it, but zero explanation of what it did. I don't remember too much about the actual game play, nothing spectacular. Although the Zentradi pods and Veritech fighters were awesome to look and had zero interest in playing again.

Now if they used the same design as X-wing with a transforming action that gave you different stats and maneuver dial, I'd be all over it.

I was hoping it would be more Battletechish. I haven't read the rules yet (and yes, the Palladium miniatures rules) but plan to give them a first look this week.
