TI3 - Sunday 17th January 2016

Post  paulyg on Wed 25 Nov 2015, 20:38

Time for another quarterly game of Twilight Imperium at my place, I think! I'm feeling good after two consecutive victories. Who will end my glorious empire?

Eight spots available, it's a full day commitment (starting at about 10.30 and probably going on until 8ish) of 4x fun, we'll order pizza, all the usual stuff. Who fancies it?

JohnH - I promised you first refusal last time so if you want to play then you're in. Let me know. Everyone else - first come, first served.

1. Aneurin Minister of the Galaxy
2. Paul G Minister of winning twice in a row
3. Steve Minister of Far far away
4. JohnH Minister of Brown Ale
5. Sam Minister of Psychosis
6. Jamie Minister of Running
7. Tom Whitehead Minister of 'if only I could win'
8. Neil Minister of old

Reserve & pizza logistics: Kat Minister of apologising

I would definitely like pizza and would like to sign up to be first reserve, but don't want to commit just yet.
I would just like to have the option of first refusal so I can decide nearer the time if a space becomes free. But I might then decide I don't want to play. Being first reserve gives me options though Smile

List updated. Two spots left!

If I have time at the weekend, for the benefit of the newbies, I'll try to go through the three rulebooks and call out which optional rules we play with. That'll save you reading a whole bunch of stuff that you don't need to know!

Yep. It's Jan. Probably snow and ice. I can afford a day off to live in peace and harmony with my galactic neighbours....

And we are full!

Neil is taking the last spot. He used to play with us loads so is quite experienced. Do not trust him.

I'll sort out race choices later today

Severely crippled and useless war suns, though. More like war kittens. Peaceful war kittens.

Until you give them to the Nekro on Turn 1... As protectors of knowledge in the known Galaxy the Universities cannot let this atrocity go unnoticed.

You could scare him and take the Shardak with their +1 on all rolls their dreadnaughts and cruisers can easily take care of the 'war kittens'. Or take the traders and out produce him! Get warsuns quickly by buying the tech. What's your choice. Pretty strong either way.

Still researching! Tempted to go for the trading race though, rather than the overly militaristic one (which I played last time). Really looking forward to playing though. Have a lot more research to do...

OK, for those who haven't played before I think this is what you need to read.

Base game rules
Read all the way to p31. Optional rules we use are:
- Distant Suns (p33)
- Leaders (p34)
Don't worry too much about the strategy cards (pp36-38) as we use ones from the expansions

Shattered Empire Expansion
Read all the way to p8. Optional rules we use are:
- Variant Strategy Cards (p9)
- Variant Objectives (I think) (p9)
- Race-Specific Technologies (p9)
- Artifacts (p9)
- Shock Troops (p10)
- Space Mines (p10)
- The Wormhole Nexus (p10)
- Facilities (p11)
- Tactical Retreats (p11)
- New Distant Suns Domain Counters (p11)
- Custodians of Mecatol Rex (p11)
Check the errata on p13
The strategy cards on pp14-16 are the ones we play with except for Trade II (we use Trade III from the second expansion)

Shards of the Throne Expansion
Read up to p9. We play with these optional rules:
- Preliminary Objectives (p10)
- Race-Specific Technologies (p10)
- Flagships (p10)
- The Final Frontier (p11)
- Mechanized Units (p11)
- Mercenaries (p12)
- Trade III strategy card (p20)
Check the errata on p21-22

And you're done!

Good strategy guide (overall strategy and race-specific tips) can be found here.
