CBT Technical Readout:3058 Upgrade & Astrobirdz Card Game to release Monday 6-12-06
Wars Past. Wars Present
In the 3050's, the discoveries of long-buried Star League records led to a plethora of new cutting-edge BattleMech and vehicle designs by the end of that decade, resurrected from the blue prints of design firms centuries old and thought lost to antiquity. Now, ten years later, these designs have moved from novelty to workhorse, as the Inner Sphere once more finds itself at war!
Fully updated to circa 3070 and still containing the same fantastic art by Duane Loose, Classic BattleTech Technical Readout: 3058 Upgrade $29.99 launches these designs into the current time frame, including notable MechWarriors/pilots, as well as new variants. Additionally, a battle armor section has been included, providing full Classic BattleTech stats, and updating the histories for these twenty venerable designs.

Astrobirdzare the galaxy’s most competitive extreme sports creatures. Able to snowboard comets in the cold of space or surf the fiery surface of a sun, they are the ultimate extreme sports life form. They love nothing more than taking their favorite board and riding a wave, skating a stair, or catching as much air as possible on one of their kiteboards. They’ve learned to take their sport into outer space for even more complex board runs among the stars.
Astrobirdz use all types of boards, but each bird soon finds one it especially favors, and so specializes in that style of board. Their technology is such that they are able to jet on their boards into outer space and move at amazing speeds from planet to planet and star to star. They are famous throughout the universe not only for their extreme sports skills but for their high quality trade goods such as boards, rocketbikes, space cars, and other technology.
A peace-loving civilization, they’ve managed to settle disputes by competing against other alien races in an intergalactic extreme sports arena. This galaxy-wide sports activity has only increased the Astrobirdz’ love of competition. They fiercely defend their reputation as the ultimate extreme sports creatures by performing the most radical and intense tricks ever seen in any galaxy!
6 foil cards represent Berzerkerbirdz. 54 cards represent different tricks the Astrobirdz can do on their rocket-assisted boards. An Astrobirdz fingerboard marks the best competitor in the game. A score pad helps mark each of the rounds of cards played in the game. The rules are short and quick to read.
Playing Time: 20 minutes
