Review 7TV - Version II
The first think I noticed that in comparison to version I, it was so much quicker and easier to create a force from scratch. Boss Hoggs boys, headed by co-star leather-clad sadist Travis, took all of five minutes to create from the preprogrammed convenient cards - that incidentally have all relevant information written on.
The new game most closely resembles Batman, in that it is a resource-controlled skirmish game. However, Batman involves setting up resource counters onto a control board at the start of each turn rather like a Star Trek battle - "more power to the shields Scotty". 7TV II just feeds them in as they are used and no control board is necessary.
This makes t7TV more fluid, faster, and more in keeping with a TV show.
I always loved the idea of 7TV but disliked the execution. Version II is better in every way. It's more like a new game than a reboot.
Loved it: Highly recommended.
My thanks to Mik for teaching me the rules.
