  2. Sign-ups for play-by-forum Twilight Imperium

    08 April 2018 - 08:44 PM

    This is the sign-up thread for a play-by-forum game of Twilight Imperium

    What is Twilight Imperium (hereafter abbreviated as TI4)? It's an empire-building space opera board game. In TI4, each player commands a race that is rebuilding and expanding their domain over a fall galaxy with the goal of becoming prestigious enough to successfully claim the long-abandoned throne of the galaxy-ruling Lazax.

    The expanding across a galaxy made of space-hexagons should be familiar to those who previously played in this forum's games of Eclipse, but in TI4 you'll find there are a lot more mechanics and objectives oriented towards diplomatic negotiations, political influence or obstruction, economic trade, and secrecy.

    I'm setting up the main thread for the game now, which is here: https://forum.malaza...ght-imperium-i/

    If you'd like to read the rules before (or after) you decide to sign up, the best way is with the Learn to Play manual. It's a lengthy read, and the concept of "activations" that drives one of the biggest mechanics of the game might take a couple reads before it starts to make sense, but once you see it in action it 'clicks' really easily and generally-speaking TI4's rules do a great job of following the theme naturally so for the most part things will "just make sense" without you needing to actually have memorized all the minutiae.

    Alternatively, here's a Learn to Play video and here's a review of the game.

    Plus I'll be here to help guide everyone, and I won't be playing, just moderating, so my advice should be unbiased and you can ask secret questions by PM.

    The plan is to start the game next weekend (with some setup like choosing your race done throughout this week). Given how long the Eclipse games averaged and how the mechanics compare (TI4 has a bit fewer turns and consequently less waiting for players), I guesstimate the game will end around the end of June.

    We can play with an absolute minimum of 3, but I'd like to get up to 6. We can go up to an absolute maximum of 9 players. It'll be first-come-first-served.

    1. Morgoth
    2. Gnaw+ItWaesNom
    3. Tapper
    4. Tatts
    5. Blend
    6. Nico
    7. twelve
    8. IH
    9. Khell
  3. Twilight Imperium (I) - Chatty Thread

    04 April 2018 - 02:42 PM

    This thread has all the necessary rules/references and is a place where you can chat/ask questions/negotiate/wheedle/offer bribes freely. Anyone observing the game is welcome to post here, too, though I'd ask you to refrain from giving direct advice to specific players.

    There will be a separate thread for (and only for) official posts of the game itself.

    Lmao it's a long ass story. I was offering her my dick in a box as a joke, through much rejection I said I was crying like the dude who acts like Boy George from the wedding singer, the way he looks lead TB to call me a male prostitute. After flinging my junk back into my face she also determined that I was gay lmao
