  1. Dan

    I was lucky enough to get the GKR Pilots Edition through the awesome folks at SB as I had missed it by a day on KS. The folks there are awesome, simply some of the best and nicest people I’ve dealt with! Thank you!

    Onward to the game: GKR Core box is amazing without a shadow of a doubt, great mini’s great boxing, though because I got the PE, I’ve got to get a custom inner as not everything will fit if you’ve got the Pilots Ed (or better).

    Sadly the KS box was not so well packed (internally (so clearly no fault of SB)) and when opened up, the merc’s had obviously had a hard start to their life. Thanks to the hot and cold water technique, they’re looking a lot better, but I was rather disappointed with that given how well the core box was packed.

    Quality of parts in the core box is also amazing, Merc’s come unpainted and the pilots were lacking detail as everyone else has already said. Extra cards are awesome, and on the whole the extras box is very nice. Just a bit of a shame that it wasn’t better packed by the factory who made it.

    The game itself? What can I say that probably hasn’t already been said? It’s certainly a keeper! Really enjoyable to play, good fun even at the start picking your load outs when you’re trying to anticipate what the other people will take and counter it! Really comes into its own when you start to get sponsorship cards though! Such destructive fun!

    What can I say? If you don’t own a copy and you like fast paced tabletop games, you probably should 🙂
