Steve (mechanical Monkey) has it. We played once - I enjoyed it.

Is that London Steve? Or 'be very careful if you play Diplomacy with him' Steve?

Totally want to play it...

Any idea when he's up next? Can we persuade him to bring Archipelago, I'd love to give it a whirl. Sorely tempted to just buy it though; but trying not to spend too much on games, and it's about £47 on Amazon, and I also want Eclipse Ship Pack One ... which is mostly just new models of Eclipse, is buying that wrong?

Id say do it... but unless you really do want a lot of new plastic ( and who doesnt... ), I suspect the few other new bits arent worth the price of the box, the whole package is easily worth the cost Smile

Ah yeah, to play TI3? I put myself down on the reserves list, just in case anyone drops out. I would have nabbed a slot earlier, but wasn't feeling too well after the last time we played (blaming it on the Pizza overdose). Anyhow, I've just heard from Steve who has it, and says he'll bring it next time he's down (won't be next Tuesday though). Smile

TI3 is in October! London Steve works for a company based in Broomhill... he has to come up every 3 weeks ... I guess this is holiday time so that's a bit more relaxed!

Trying hard not to spend Scott! Really, it's just the models and a bit of my need to own the complete game and all expansions (plus there's a new big expansion coming soon too, which I'm going to want that too). Really need to be playing it much more, or I'll feel dirty spending money on it. Sad Shocked

Oh yeah, I'm not very good with months, they all seem the same, they go by so fast...

I made big mistakes I think, last time we played TI3. I should have played a lot more attention to the victory point chits. I recon you need to keep those in mind, as your target, and work backwards. Last time I was pretty much oblivious to them.
