After a year and a half of COVID isolation, it looks like this monstrosity is finally going to launch. Planning to host a couple games at Rock-Con this October.

"Escape The Titanica!" is set in the "Aliens" universe set aboard the luxury space liner Titanica, which has been struck by an ice meteorite while cruising somewhere near LV426.

All contact with the bridge and First and Second Class passenger levels has been lost.

That means all you guys in Third Class are on your own, and the race is on for the escape shuttles.

Also, there's an ugly rumor spreading about "xenophobes" aboard the ship, whatever those are …

Rules are FUBAR, scale is 15mm and each player controls two units of 5 figures.

So come by and play on this three-dimensional cluster-f … ugh, I mean Charlie Foxtrot, if you get a chance!

I'm sure the historic first flight will be totally serene and tranquil.

Stryderg05 Aug 2021 9:49 a.m. PST

wow, just, wow.

KevinV05 Aug 2021 10:13 a.m. PST

Rock-Con next year as well?

FearAndLoathing05 Aug 2021 10:24 a.m. PST

Little Wars 2022 for sure. Probably Winter Wars too. Maybe Rock-Con again. See how it goes.

This is really awesome. I've got a lot of the same paper kits, and have been dreaming of doing something similar. But I won't achieve anything near that scale. Well done!

Mister Tibbles05 Aug 2021 10:59 a.m. PST

I wish I were going Rock-con just to play this. I am impressed.

Patrick Sexton Supporting Member of TMP05 Aug 2021 12:41 p.m. PST

That is frak'n impressive.

Silurian05 Aug 2021 1:28 p.m. PST

Very cool!

Shagnasty Supporting Member of TMP05 Aug 2021 4:05 p.m. PST

Very impressive. Watch out for space bergs.

Oberlindes Sol LIC Supporting Member of TMP05 Aug 2021 8:37 p.m. PST

That is just awesome.

And, if you have been looking for an excuse to do the theme parks in Orlando, consider Recon in April and Hurricon in September. Love to see this one in person!

I'm sure the historic first flight will be totally serene and tranquil.

Exactly. What could possibly go wrong?

Old Wolfman07 Aug 2021 9:56 a.m. PST

Reminds me of that episode of "Futurama".

I had signed up for this game once before but then the convention got cancelled. Would love to play this and I will be going to Rock-Con.

It looks magnificent.

Mad Mecha Guy12 Aug 2021 11:18 p.m. PST

now need to make the large space ice asteroid for it to run into……

Thresher0115 Nov 2021 4:41 p.m. PST

Any news on how this went, or how the walls were made?

Fear and Loathing,
I recognize some of the printed items as being from Genet models. I downloaded a bunch of their free items, but noticed that they are done up in a larger scale (1/60?). Probably for 28mm, etc.

Since it looks like you are using 15mm figures/maps, what size did you downscale to?

Darkest Star Games Sponsoring Member of TMP20 Jan 2022 8:20 a.m. PST

This is brilliant!

kcabai20 Jan 2022 12:05 p.m. PST

They are scheduled to be at Little Wars, come and play!

This looks amazing! I'm hauling ass from Canada to join in Little Wars, and I'll be playing this for sure!

Congratulations in taking 2nd Place for the Best Table at Little Wars. It was a VERY tough field.
