capi's digital WC CCG has come together very rapidly over the past month, and now it's time for adventurous players to give it a try! Fans can check out the full rules here at the CIC, but capi has thoughtfully provided key information on how to get playing quickly at the project's VASSAL module page. You can also download the current test release package there. capi has also put together a variety of interesting theme decks to spice up the gameplay and kickstart the prep for new players. Let everyone know how it goes at the CIC Forums!
Here's a question for y'all - what's your typical deck size? I'm an old Star Trek CCG and MTG player, so I usually go for sixty card decks when I play CCGs in general, but running some numbers this morning that size of deck for WCCCG looks a little...anemic. IMHO.

Kilrathi Fleet Gets Large Scale LLOD Upgrades
A couple of monster models have made their way into the Last Line of Defense project. Using some newly discovered information, Deathsnake has scaled up his fearsome Rigakh cruiser. Fairly credible stats imply it's even larger than the Confederation class dreadnought! (2018-03-19)
Black Lance Transport Certified For Covert Cargo
After leading the charge with a pair of exotic Black Lance designs earlier this year, DefianceIndustries has circled back around and completed the Evansville class transport that we see in Wing Commander 4. It has a fairly sleek profile for a transport as well as oversized engines, which form a pretty effective combo. There's no better way to sneak clandestine cargo to out-of-the-way places! (2018-03-18)
