One of the guys had purchased Leviathans from by Catalyst Games and bought it along to the club day, so we played our first game today. Six of us played, three ships per side so we could all get into the action and get a feel for the game. My first thought was my god the board is so small, but then you remember it's a miniature board game and designed that way.
The Base box set is exactly what you expect from Catalyst, strong sturdy box and components along the same line as the Battle Tech base set. The models are a much better quality than the Battle Tech box set, and pre-painted. The game mechanics were quite smart and streamlined if you compare it to standard Battle Tech as well. Everything you need to know is on the cards for each of the ships.
I’m comparing it to Battle Tech as I’m a big fan (I've been playing it for years) and there are similarities between the games, but you don't need to know anything about Battle tech to play this. A really fun game, which I’m looking forward to seeing some more model releases and expansions before I look at getting into it.
There are plenty of reviews around on this game,so here’s one.
