For all you veteran players out there, special rules for the Wilderness Hunger Games Scenario and for both of the Space Station Solitaire versions are now available for download on this website!
Wilderness – Hunger Games Scenario
Are you literally sick and tired from racing to the village? Wouldn’t it be easier to just kill all the other players to be the last man standing? This is what the Hunger Games Scenario adds to Wilderness! With these special rules you can no longer win by entering the village, your only goal is to be the last survivor. With a different gameboard set-up, some new rules for interaction, and a more aggressive atmosphere, this will surely add variety to your game.
Space Station Solitaire – Bot Version (Page 1)
We’ve always said it’s hard to find an opponent in outer space. But don’t worry, we’ve created a bot which is clearly more designed to survive without oxygen than you are. And since they’re massproduced, why not take on two of them at once? In the Bot Version, you play against simulated opponents. They are not as smart as you, but they get certain advantages that will even that out. Can you beat the bots?
Space Station Solitaire – Peaceful Version (Page 2)
Back to the Space Station Training Academy, where the simulation of construction is all there is. No meteor storms, no malfunctions, no time consuming bureaucracy, and especially no evil-minded competitor. Your goal is to build the best possible space station without event cards. It might be peaceful, but that doesn’t make it easy. Each year, the number of modules you need of each color to score Victory Points is increased, and to win and graduate from the Academy, you need 22 VPs. Can you do it?
Feel free to send us your stories and achievements from these alternate versions.
Tired of the same old Core Modules? Let’s upgrade, then! We’ve designed a limited edition promo pack with 4 new Core Modules to add more variety to the game. With the Space Station Promo Pack, all 6 colors are represented as Core Modules, introducing new effects and powerful combinations. Each new Core Module enhances the theme of its color, thus encouraging strategic expertise. Be careful, though; you’ll never win with only one color.
The Space Station Promo Pack consists of 2 double-sided cards, each side with a unique new Core Module, either Military (purple), Support (brown), Scientific (blue), or Luxury (yellow). It will be released in Essen, where it will be included in the FryxGames Game Pack (Space Station + Promo, Wilderness + Promo, 2x Brawling Barons), or as separate item. This limited edition will only be available through us.
The second edition of Space Station is now on its way. It will be officially released at Essen Spiel 2012 in Germany, with some new graphics, a new game box and some modified cards. To give you something to long for, here is the new Extra Docking Port module. Along with 7 other modules it got a facelift for this new edition. Enjoy!
