Quad-S: Evolution - Spaceship Combat - Basic Set

If you have purchased Quad-S: Evolution in the past, you do not need to purchase this product.

Quad-S has been sold over 2000 copies in eight countries since its debut. Everybody from veteran gamers to new blood having its first taste of non-mass market gameplay is being introduced to Quad-S every week. With that kind of following, we had to come out with a second edition. Quad-S Evolution.

The basic premise that made Quad-S special has not changed. Quad-S is still a maneuver-based game that rewards good tactics. Every race is still diverse and plays by a different set of rules that is still compatible with the other races in gameplay. With honorable playing still a major for the spirit of the game, it is one of the main reasons Quad-S is still popular years later, it has generated a fan base of the "good" gamers.


Gameplay: From simple to complex - It's up to you!

One of the greatest strengths of Quad-S is the modular system of play. In other games, the races are not really that different. Sure, the weapons may deal damage differently and may have some systems the others may not have, but the six races within Quad-S all work vastly different from one another.

The way they move, take damage, operate their systems and even enter hyperspace is different! It just makes sense as the aliens are supposed to be different, not sharing off the same technology base! The best thing! They are still compatible with each other! This seamless gameplay is still original and has not been repeated in any space game out there since it's debut!

This allows your Quad-S game to follow the complexity and speed to which you feel like playing! Other games, you are stuck in one speed, detailed and slower, or fast and furious. This also lets the experienced gamer tackle the detailed races while allowing the players that prefer less detailed gameplay to play the other races. The end result is players from both preferences can play an enjoyable game!

 Quad-S: Evolution - Basic Set comes with;

  • 32 pages basic rulebook with eight scenarios
  • Ku’Son’Ri rulebook
  • Husanna Coalition rulebook
  • 11 Ku’Son’Ri ships
  • 10 Husanna Coalition ships
  • 112 printable ship counters

These races have been chosen to give you, the player, the best of both worlds. The Ku’Son’Ri allows for the finest tuning of strategy while the Husanna Coalition player will enjoy a simpler energy system for speed of play. With 21 ships from gunboats to dreadnaughts at your disposal, you’ll have hours of space battles to enjoy!

See you in our galaxy!

I'm thinking I was an unfortunate victim of an upgrade/revision.... ;-)

When I originally purchased the game, it was called "Quad-S Spaceship Combat" which I believe was the previous revision. That is what is reflected in my Library. However, when I downloaded the files today, I ended up with a pdf entitled "Quad-S_Evolution_2017" and a zip folder called "Quad-S PDF" which contained various sub-folders of artwork, counters, control sheets and jpegs.

The rule book I downloaded is entitled "Quad-S Evolution, but the cover art is completely different than that shown on this page. My rulebook has a row of ship icons across the top and the title Quad-S Evolution superimposed over a hex grid. Additionally, the page numbering of the rulebook jumps from 17 to 74, with the final page being 103. I do not have the race-specific rules mentioned on this page.

Do I have a superseded version of the game that requires a repurchase,...See more

Not right yet. There are a lot of variables in the game past the standard "different weapons and shields".

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
