Dice Roller – Fleet Manager
Out now on the Apple App Store and Google Play is an app designed to complement your ship exploding, dice rolling experience.
What you should know before downloading: The app will run and look it’s best on tablets. As requested by the community I haven’t restricted it to any device type, so you can download it to a phone but of course the buttons may be too small and some text hard to read (although there’s some zoom buttons). I also didn’t restrict to only new devices, so if you run it on older tablets it may lag between the menus a little.
Fleet Manager combines one player’s Control Panel and Technology Tree into a single screen. Using the plus and minus buttons you can increase and decrease energy across your Mothership’s subsystems. The Tech Tree also highlights when you upgrade your fleet and will only allow you to select one branch per tree. When you upgrade your Support tree to include extra Mothership energy this automatically gets added to your Control Panel.
It doesn’t end there though! As you’re aware, the Tech Tree also adds buffs to the rolls of your Fighters or Bombers. Tap the dice button and you’re taken to a personal dice roller that connects to your Tech Tree and automatically adds your buffs for you! This screen also sports a large area to display the current roll, roll history up to four places and buttons for regular dice.
Stand Alone Dice Roller
Obviously each player in your gaming group may not have a device to run the app (fair enough!) so there is also a stand-alone Dice Roller which can be used for the entire table. The module features buttons for normal dice, the Random Event D6 and buttons that correspond to Fighter and Bomber rolls, their buffs and multiple ships attacking at once.
Rule Book, Card List, About
It’s helpful for each player sometimes to have their own copy of the rule book and also a list of cards they can expect to appear in the deck along with their quantities. The rule book also includes the How to Play video available on YouTube.
