So, I am still figuring out everything I need to do in order to run the game.

Start date will either be July 16th or 23rd.

I may not have full access from August 10-15 (going to a cousin's wedding and to visit the family), so the game may be mostly paused during that time, but otherwise, as long as I can figure everything out, I will start the game on one of the above dates and run it.

If you wanna play, say something!

1. D'rek
2. Gnaw
3. Morgoth
4. Khellendros
5. IH
6. Tapper
7. Twelve
8. Lady Bliss
9. Tattersail





Order of race selection:


- Khellendros - Saar (B HW)
- Lady Bliss - Mentak (A HW)
- D'rek - L1z1x (D HW)
- IH - Creuss (H HW)
- Morgoth - Arborec (I HW)
- Gnaw - Xxcha (G HW)
- Tattersail - Hacan (E HW)
- Twelve - Winnu (F HW)
- Tapper - Sol (C HW)

I should note that I will randomize the player list once we start. So the order in which people sign up will not control the order of strategy card choices. Once it has been randomized once, though, that will be the order for the rest of the game.

Some game setup ideas to consider:

Drafting & building the map -- check out the official rules have the map built, where hexes are randomly dealt to players and players take turn placing them. Some common variants of the homeworld placement with this are {a} player order and homeworld locations are assigned right from the start, {b} homeworld locations are assigned from the start, but which player gets which is randomized after, {c} players can place their homeworld as one of their tiles, anywhere within their assigned "pie slice", {d} players can place their homeworld anywhere as one of their tiles.

Age of Empire -- all ten public objectives are available from the start of the game.

Number of VP -- Official rule is 10 for a short game or 14 for the long game. We played to 11 in the first game (short game plus 1 extra since it takes a little bit longer to get into the swing of things).

Though I suppose if anyone else wants to join, please say so. I'll add you as an alternate in case someone has to bow out, or potentially pair you up with someone else if they'd like (I'm thinking Lady B and BK here as neither have played before, or at least haven't played on this forum).

Alright, that means we have space for at least one more player!

I would have expected Tatts to be bouncing around enthusiastically already...

If the start is on 23rd and nobody else wants it I'll play

But I'll step down for Tatts or anyone who'd want to play, even after spectating the whole last game (admiteddly not paying close enough attention to the technical details of game thread) it all still seems entirely too complicated

Pairing didn't really work out for me last time as I left my co-consul to the job part of our job and kept all of the drugs & party part to myself (sorry Gnaw!), but I'm definitely willing to pair up with Bliss if she feels like it, there're still *some* aspects that I did understand

just so you guys are aware, I'll be heading to Indonesia and friday and will stay there for three weeks. There's plenty of wifi and all, but as you may well imagine I'll be less active than I normally would be.
