Sometimes you're not sure where to start with a new game system. Maybe you've got a friend who also wants to start. That's where the 2-player starter comes in. If you're looking to start a new game in a new year, Warlord Games is going to be coming out with a new 2-player starter for Beyond the Gates of Antares. You can even order yours now.
The Strike on Kar'A Nine comes with two starter forces. One's for the Algoryn, while the other is the Concord. It's also got all the special dice, tokens, and templates you could need. Along with that, they've even got your playing surface covered (literally and figuratively), as there's a fold-out battle mat and cut-out terrain. The Scenario Book that comes with it also gives you a set of introductory missions that will help you ease your way into the rules, creating a learn-as-you-go campaign. The set comes in at just under $50.
As I mentioned, you can order yours now.
