All Rankings


It has become a tradition to formulate all sorts of Rankings ideas over at Miniature Trading.  I started the original series, which reviewed my opinion on the top 5 or 10 gunships and gold runners for each of the factions.  Godmason has continued the series and we have many threads still to go!  Here you can find my ideas on the various factions and their best ships.  This is a good way to learn about the game, learn about the factions, and discover which ships you might be interested in acquiring to build your fleets and expand your collection.  Feel free to submit your own Top 10 Game Pieces Overall!  😀

  1. hey I’m just curious what these cards are worth in sleeves since they came out of the boosters and they are from 2006 or soemthing crimson or something but that was only one checklist I can send you pictures let me know

    • @Andrew: Worth will depend on what you have. A really rough guide to rarities is Common=$1, Uncommon=$2, and Rare=$4. You can check out this spreadsheet for past auction price histories on eBay, especially for some of the game’s rarest items.
