7/21/2008 - Nothing
new about Rocketmen in over 2
years and the DVD was never released so I
moved this game to OOP Shelf status.
- The first expansion for Rocketmen,
Battle of Titans has been released.
Rocketmen: Battle of
Titans moves the battle for the future to
the middle of the solar system, introducing

Saturnians, a noble warrior race; and the

Rocketmen: Battle of
Titans is a stand-alone expansion;
everything one person needs to fight for the
future comes in a single game pack,

asteroid card. Also included is a scenario

Jovian Fuel Jellies – massive floating
creatures mined as the source of rocket
This expansion adds a new
ship type, a new pod, and a new crew
type. Harvesters are agile cargo
haulers that, like fighters, come in teams
of 2 on a card. Tractor Beam pods are

ship towards you. The new crew type is
actually a weapon, the Torpedo.
