box-nexus-ops-rightRecently I got this game base purely on the number of miniatures supplied and the very reasonable price tag. Knowing it is a Fantasy Flight Games, I reckon there is a good chance it is a good game as well.

In this video I take a look at the components. This is not a review of the gameplay, but a review of what comes in the box and if it warrants the price you pay for this game. It is a bit longer than other videos I’ve created, but that’s because there is a fair bit going on in this box!

From the publisher’s site:

Nexus Ops is a board game of fierce sci-fi battles and fantastic alien creatures in which two to four players control factions of corporate troops and strange life forms on an alien moon. Players deploy troops from their home base to explore the landscape, mine resources, purchase troops, win battles, and fulfil missions, all in an attempt to gather enough power to claim the moon for themselves.

This new edition of this classic title features detailed plastic figures, stunning new art, a clarified rulebook, and a host of optional rules and variants. Race to the monolith in King of the Hill mode, face the peril of the deadly Vortex, or introduce a full set of alternate unit powers!

Nexus Ops includes:

  • Over 160 plastic figures
  • 17 detailed terrain tiles
  • Nearly 100 tokens and markers
  • 90 cards
  • Six dice
  • One rulebook

Hope you enjoy the video!

 

Yep, I do count all the miniatures in this video!
