Followed the Kickstarter, but ultimately didn't pledge because with all the stretch goals, the game was just getting too unwieldy to play on a reasonable basis. I did pick up the re-print of the original ziplock version. Now I hear they're putting out a more reasonable version of the main board game now, so I might look into that.
Played the original computer version on the Commodore 64 way back in the day, and that was a great game. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to run on most of the C64 emulators out there today. Hopefully they stick to a straightforward translation of the board game and stay away from the RTS/Free-To-Play models.
