While at Sentry Box today I picked up a copy of the Dystopian Wars rulebook. I haven’t really made a decision to jump into the game but of the three systems that Spartan has created with their rules I think that this has the most potential to be a very fun game.
Firestorm Armada ultimately didn’t grab me as a game because I wanted to see more differentiation of ship systems and weapons in a starship combat game. Dystopian Wars fits the core Spartan rules better in that it deals primarily with batteries of guns and the system of using a number of D6 to assign to weapon systems works for DW where it didn’t, to my mind, work for Firestorm Armada.
I’ll check to see if there are any people playing this locally and maybe check the game out further
