1) I've heard about both a stargate FPS game for PC/consoles and a stargate board game. are both for sure comming out? and if they are when?
2) I"ve also heard about an SG-1 trading card game. is this like Magic: The Gathering, were u battle and stuff, or is it like baseball cards and all you do is collect?
3) What are some good books on wormholes(with time travel and parallel universes in it maybe)? i have Stephen Hawkings book Breif History of Time and will be getting the sequel to it very soon.

I've heard of the PC/console FPS, but not of any board game. And nothing on the other two.

Stephen Hawking's books are very well written so that everyone can understand them ;)

Other than Stephen Hawkings books, the only resources I can think of might be a paper I read a while ago on Einstein-Rossen Bridges (wormholes). Other than that, your best bet is to kick everyone else out of the basement for a while and set up shop...

What, mine? I never bothered to check the image size, but if you can prove to me that it violates regulations I'll comply.

You may be interested to know that the Stargate SG-1 boardgame is currently available from Forbidden Planet International: www.scifiwarehouse.com

It's on page 95 of the current catalogue (along with some other nice SG-1 merchandise), the order number is C4890, and the price is £27.99 - which is about $52 at the current rate of exchange.

Hope you find this helpful.

The guideline for signatures is 200y x 700x or four lines. If those are supposed to be the same, then those are very large lines. As far as the size (aside from lines) everything here is within the rules. But I have to say, the "More annoying than Ugly Pig!" signature certainly gets it's point across. :)

Yup, the board game is out. Played it last night. It's set up very similar to "Risk",with appropriate Stargate twists, and dark and light Asgard, Goa'uld, and Tau'ri sets (six sets all total).
