Fun game with co-op option

We really like the idea of this game and have lots of fun playing it. We especially love games that you can play cooperatively and this game offers both competitive and co-op mode. The pawns and tokens are lovely and the game play it a lot of fun. The only tiny negative i find is that it is almost impossible to play the co-op mode with just 2 players, because you don't have enough ships to work against the bot ships. Also more suggestions for co-op card decks would be nice since by now we already know the co-op card deck by heart. But overall definitely a great game that i would definitely recommend, especially to people that like games with co-op option.

Great game, great components!

Really nice game with great components. It has a lot of networking and security references well represented in the game mechanics. The only problem I see is that it doesn't scale well with two players, but just for the competitive mode, since for the co-op mode you can use two colours for players, so having more pieces on the board.
