Quad-S: Evolution - Spaceship Combat - Basic Set

If you have purchased Quad-S: Evolution in the past, you do not need to purchase this product.

Quad-S has been sold over 2000 copies in eight countries since its debut. Everybody from veteran gamers to new blood having its first taste of non-mass market gameplay is being introduced to Quad-S every week. With that kind of following, we had to come out with a second edition. Quad-S Evolution.

The basic premise that made Quad-S special has not changed. Quad-S is still a maneuver-based game that rewards good tactics. Every race is still diverse and plays by a different set of rules that is still compatible with the other races in gameplay. With honorable playing still a major for the spirit of the game, it is one of the main reasons Quad-S is still popular years later, is has generated a fan base of the "good" gamers.

 

Gameplay: From simple to complex - It's up to you!

One of the greatest strengths of Quad-S is the modular system of play. In other games, the races are not really that different. Sure, the weapons may deal damage differently and may have some systems the others may not have, but the six races within Quad-S all work vastly different from one another.

The way they move, take damage, operate their systems and even enter hyperspace is different! It just makes sense as the aliens are supposed to be different, not sharing off the same technology base! The best thing! They are still compatible with each other! This seamless gameplay is still original and has not been repeated in any space game out there since it's debut!

This allows your Quad-S game to follow the complexity and speed to which you feel like playing! Other games, you are stuck in one speed, detailed and slower, or fast and furious. This also lets the experienced gamer tackle the detailed races while allowing the players that prefer less detailed gameplay to play the other races. The end result is players from both preferences can play an enjoyable game!

 Quad-S: Evolution - Basic Set comes with;

  • 32 pages basic rulebook with eight scenarios
  • Ku’Son’Ri rulebook
  • Husanna Coalition rulebook
  • 11 Ku’Son’Ri ships
  • 10 Husanna Coalition ships
  • 112 printable ship counters

These races have been chosen to give you, the player, the best of both worlds. The Ku’Son’Ri allows for the most fine tuning of strategy while the Husanna Coalition player will enjoy a simpler energy system for speed of play. With 21 ships from gunboats to dreadnaughts at your disposal, you’ll have hours of space battles to enjoy!

See you in our galaxy!

James,

A few editorial hiccups I've found while reading the rules:

Page 11 System Groups: the paragraph states 6 groups while 8 color groups are listed.
Page 12 Movement Phase: Section title misplaced.
Page 13 Movement Example: Example diagram and descriptive paragraph are out of order (“In the example pictured above” when the diagram is below)

The initiative/movement mechanism looks intriguing. The combat die roll mechanic of "beating" your modifiers' total is an interesting twist for me. Enjoying what I see so far. ;-)

Thanks I'll get those fixed right away. Thought I caught all those.

Glad to see you like what you see. What games have you played in the past as far as spaceship combat goes?

I made the "beating the modifiers thing" because I felt it promotes the idea (at least to me anyway), to roll first and if it's close THEN figure out the to-hit. For the most part, ships hit pretty easy once they close distance. You can save a lot of time just rolling and eliminating a lot of needless math on obvious rolls.

My spaceship gaming is mostly Starfire, though I've tried my hand at Federation Commander, Star Fleet Battles, Talon, Attack Vector: Tactical, Squadron Strike and a couple others. I enjoy studying rules to see how the designers tackle the issues.

Any detailed game play reviews so I may see how the mechanics and typical turn and combat flows?

We do have reviewers looking at it now. We have had great reviews before, so I am pretty confident. :)
We have had some good customer reviews though...

Hey Scott! All the products, when purchased, can be combined into one book. This new format allows people to get the foot in the door a little easier. Since you have already purchased this product and the expansions in the past, you do not need to buy them again. The rules have not changed are the changes that were made were cosmetic. If you send me your e-mail to powercellgames at gmail, I will get them to you. I will get the money back to you. Thanks for purchasing the game!

Contact customer service and ask for it; customers apparently can't find them ourselves.

Okay...

Saw the marked down price and decided to purchase the game anew. Now, I have a question regarding the file I received.

The page numbering is 1-17, 98-103, 18-23 (the Ku'Son'Ri), 64-73 (the Husanna Coalition), 74-83 (scenarios), then about 24 unnumbered pages of ships, counters, and maps.

It looks complete, but is that the format I should expect?

Okay, found my customer number: 366310.

I guess it's not readily available to customers; I had to submit a support ticket to retrieve it.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

I'm not sure how to determine my customer number, but my original order number was 8988169 dated May 14, 2016. That order included "Quad-S Spaceship Combat" and "Quad-S Spaceship Combat - Reinforcements".

I'm not trying to snake a new product from you. If my original purchase entitles me to this product, great. If not, I'll repurchase it at a time when She Who Must Be Obeyed isn't looking. She gets a bit antsy sometimes....

Hmmm.... Looks like my last post precipitated a change. Am I correct in assuming that the file "Quad-S_Evolution_2017.pdf" has been superseded and will need to be replaced by the version on this page? My files look like they were corrupted during an update and do not appear playable.

Regards,

Scott Chisholm

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
