I gotta say when I first stumbled across this game I was excited to try it out. I'm a huge fan of the Expansion Novel series. I'm waiting to watch the show until after I finish the novels. I don't want the show to influence how I read them.
Having said that I was extremely disappointed in the components. I know there is more to a game but plenty of games have the mechanics that this game has. I feel like using shots from the TV show was quick and lazy. Instead of making the cards something beautiful and unique they just went with what they had.

I would have mentioned the mediocre components, but for time code. I really have to cram things in for the 3 and a bit minute mark. But yeah, very underwhelming component quality.
Totally. It feels lazy to me.

Just finished watching the 3rd season, so I am a fan of the series but this game does not look interesting at all :(
Yep. Its an ok game, just not a great Expanse game
Yeah, so this one was a bit flat for me. It feels like the designer tried to streamline Twilight struggle or the COIN games, but did that at the cost of making the setting feel alive. It's a serviceable game, but my expectations were quite high.

The setting is so intriguing but the end result of the game doesn’t seem to match that. Cash grab?
