Customer Reviews

Add it immediately to your collectionGreat addition to the Space Alert Game...a MUST! 5Great expansion for the game!Awesome expansion for Space Alert. I recommend buying together with the orginal game! 5Takes "Space Alert" to the next levelSpace Alert is one of my all-time favorite games (see my review). One of the best things about this cooperative game is that the players are really competing against the game's frantic pace and insane learning curve. It often takes a while develop the game skills required to complete a specific mission, which makes the victory that much sweeter, but then there's always another mission to undertake, A card mechanic randomizes mission events somewhat to keep repeat playability value somewhat high, but really the thing that draws players back to this game is the ever-increasing difficulty of the included scenarios.That said, however, your crew will eventually get to the point through repeated game play where the missions in the basic set aren't quite as challenging any more-- and that's where "Space Alert: the New Frontier" comes in. Not only are new, more challenging mission types, introduced, but the game also introduces several new concepts which retcon even the older, original missions into something new and deadly.First of all, "The New Frontier" introduces the concept of experience to the game. Players can begin to keep track of individual and group accomplishments, which can in turn be traded in for new in-game skills and specialties-- which is a good thing, because "The New Frontier" also adds a new increased threat level to mission profiles. Missions with "red" threat level are generally insanely challenging, requiring a lot of frantic teamwork to manage resources and coordinate team actions, and the skills and specialties which can be acquired through the new experience system are essential to beating the toughest of these missions. In some of these missions, experienced players are also able to begin executing double actions-- two actions in a single turn. This is every bit as useful as it sounds like it might be in a game where timing is everything-- but the introduction of double actions also makes precise timing more critical than ever. "The New Frontier" keeps the double-action missions challenging by making the crew deal with more threats simultaneously, which only makes the pace faster and keeps the crew under intense pressure."The New Frontier" contains some extremely advanced missions, but if you enjoy "Space Alert" (and who doesn't?) you'll want this supplement from the very beginning, so that your crew can begin recording its experience to become ready for the epic-level danger contained in this box. You'll need an experienced crew to deal with the insanely challenging missions in this box. In short, if you think the tough missions in "Space Alert" are challenging-- think again. They're just there to get you ready for the threats that you'll face in "The New Frontier." 5Takes an 8/10 and makes it a 10/10This expansion should not be played unless it is by an experienced crew. It adds new gameplay options like double moves, specializations, and dreaded red threats that turn a normal Space Alert game into mayhem.The shortfalls of Space Alert are cleared up and brought to be one of the strengths in the expansion. The interceptors can now move to all levels of space, the stupid computer can be taken care of anywhere (with the specialization), and a lot of new strategy is needed to conquer all the levels of enemies.One of the best co-op board games out there. 5Pretty fun expansionNo problems. Pretty fun expansion, but really hard. 5Five StarsBest co-op game there is. Be warned, it isn't easy. 5Must have to Space Alert - MUST!The perfect expansion, a must have. I have yet to fully use all of the expansion rules yet, but the best one to me right now is the specializations and the experience tracking.I have way too much fun playing this game with my friends, I can't get enough of it. No wonder Space Alert is ranked so high on many game sites as one of the best board games. I highly recommend to players who like challenges. Love the co-op factor in games, as it is a welcome alternative to competitive games. 5Everything you could have wanted and moreIs Space Alert getting repetitive? Have you already figured out how to coordinate fire, time your missiles, and squash internal threats? Well get ready for this expansion because it's gonna be a bumpy ride:1. Your characters gain experience and level-up to learn specializations. This does add to replayability and you will need these specializations in the battles ahead.2. Double actions. Your character can execute two actions in a single turn. It's a bit difficult to use this to greatest effect. Practice and get used to it because you'll need every action you can get.3. Merciless threats. There is a new threat level (in addition to white and yellow, now also red). Also, the double-action missions generally have a threat level of 12 (as opposed to 8), so you will have way more threats to handle. In the base game missions, many times you don't even need to power up all your shields/reactors. I have found that with the expansion you absolutely need to manage your energy, rockets, and everything else at your disposal.4. For infinite replayability, get yourself the Space Alert Mission Generator smartphone app. It's free and it will generate random missions for you. Seriously get it. You will love it 5Huge improvements to base gameCollect experience to level up your character! New specializations like Rocketeer and Pulse Gunner! DOUBLE ACTIONS for increased mayhem!Seriously, I definitely recommend adding this to your base Space Alert, especially if you wish there were more variation from game to game. 5Don't waste your moneyDon't waste your money buying these over priced expansions. The company who released this expansion has said on their website they are reprinting this so wait until that comes out rather than waste 100 dollars on it now. 4
