I am a big fan of the computer game X-Com. It's been a passion of mine since it first came out in 1994. Ithas been something I have wanted to do on tabletop for a long time. The board game, based on the last but one computer game, was nice but it wasn't a tabletop skirmish game which for me is the best part of the computer game.
It accomplishes terrain by the use of boards. Whilst there are only six in the basic $100 box there are another 14 available if you go for the $200 set as add ons from the goals. Each game is played on four boards. The boards look about 10" square. Assuming they are double sided, this is a lot of terrain to fight over. There looks like some stand up terrain as well although I have seen better.
Over the last year I have been wondering if I could ever get an X-Com game off the ground. Along with what I have already, this game and maybe some of the stuff from Star Saga and similar terrain, I can see this being a game I can finally get to grips with.
