Thanks, Karl.  I've edited my post above.  Any other takers?

Put Paul and I down - I'll postpone Firefly til next week since a bunch of people that want to play it can't come on Tuesday Smile

Thanks to both of you, and Lizzy too. We just need one more then for a nice full group of 6 (myself included). But if we need to, I'm sure we can grab someone on the night.

PS - I love Firefly/Serenity (and most anything else Whedon does), but I've never played the board game, so I might well end up joining in with that at a future date, space permitting.

You should definitely give it a go! It's a great game. It takes a long time to play and some people don't like that the game can randomly screw you over for no reason, but if you can live with that it's a lot of fun.

Yeah, missiles with +5 computers are deadly!

I thought your 'lots of shields' idea had some merit. Your 2 (or was it 3?) star bases forced my dreadnoughts in to retreat (once they've shot their missiles, they're basically sitting ducks). Sadly, my interceptors equipped with 4 damage lasers and 4 hull points, took care of your star bases (maybe one or two lucky die rolls helped).

It somehow seems a little bit like rock paper scissors, how the combat system works. Totally awesome game, can't wait to play some more. Smile

It's a mechanically decent game that pairs up with the theme really well. I love it, but as Lizzy says, it can certainly turn on you if you get unlucky. I recommend playing the game with Paul - he's a bad-luck lightning rod when flying around the 'verse Smile

Certainly be happy to have you along for a game sometime!

Curlew and Crane wrote:Oh dear, I feel a bit guilty now for distracting people from other games with my middling effort!  I don't want to keep anyone from playing something they really fancy just to do me a favor.

Having thought about it (and coming to realize just how many regular attendees there apparently are to the Sheffield Board Games Club), I think I will sit in for the first game or two of The Path to Panic.  Not to teach per se, but just to be more involved and available for questions and comments.  Anyway, I know I'm biased, but I enjoy playing the game!

So, could I please have five volunteers to play alongside me for a single playthrough (roughly 1 1/2 to 2 hours)?  If anyone is dying to play Firefly (or any other game), please feel free to sign up for that instead.  Also, if you're more interested in the "blind" playtesting to come, which will require people who have no experience of the game, you'll have to pass on playing the game next Tuesday.  If I can't recruit five people ahead of time, I'm sure I'll be able to get some players on the night.

I might only have this one guided playtest or I might have one or two more if I think it would be useful.  After that, I hope to have multiple blind games to watch how newbies get on with the game.  Ideally, these will take place at least once a week (either on regular SBGC Tuesdays or via other arrangements with club members who have the time and interest) for the coming couple of months.

Anyway, if you think you'd be interested in the guided playtest on the 14th, please let me know.  For clarity, I'll update this post once 5 people have volunteered.  Thanks again to everyone at Sheffield Board Games Club for all your enthusiasm and generosity!

If there's still a place going for playtesting, I'll take it.

I'm not sure if anyone is left who is not already booked in a game? - But I will be bringing EUPHORIA (mid/heavy euro with a dystopian future theme!) if anyone fancies giving that a go?? Very Happy

Don't forget Eclipse. Smile

I'm having problems getting the iOS version to work with online games. Ever since the update, can't seem to access existing online games. Need an Eclipse fix! Not a happy bunny!

Thank you, Steveygee. That's a full house of 6 players for The Path to Panic, then, with myself included. Thanks to everyone who volunteered.

Anyone who isn't going to get a chance to play this week: I'll likely be pestering you to join a blind playtest at some point in the near future!

I'll be there promptly at 7:00 tomorrow and hopefully we'll get a full playthrough done by 9:00.

Thanks again.

That would have been awesome but the person I wanted to introduce to you all double booked himself and can't make it so I'm going to have bunny time instead. Sorry. Also will not be there next week as Paul is playing Twilight Imperium or the week after as Paul is going to a concert. See you on the 5th May?!!

Paul - can you organise games time for me please?

To say I'm having "a bit of a day" is a definite understatement - there is a decent chance I'll have to work late to get on top of things so I may be late along tonight (if I make it at all).

I'm signed up to test that game, if anyone wants my spot they're welcome to it, if I do make it in time I'll just play something else and catch one of the later playtests.

Sorry guys Sad

I've had a bit of a 'car-ectomy' today; so may or may not have transport tonight. If not, I'll be arriving in style on bus or tram, Eclipse in hand. Hope to make it for 7 tonight, but maybe a little late, depending on reliability of public transport...

I don't understand! Did you remove something from the car, or have you had the car removed from you? Or something else entirely?!

Hope to make it for 7 tonight, but maybe a little late, depending on reliability of public transport...

See you at 8:30!

Sorry to hear you've had a lousy day, DaveB.  Don't worry about being unable to join for the playtesting today.  I'm sure I can nab someone else from among the Sheffield Board Games Club horde this evening and I'll happily come back to you for the blind playtests in the future.  Take care.
