Continuing what seems to now be a quarterly tradition, let's play some more Twilight Imperium at my place (Greenhill) on Saturday, 4th July. Putting this date out well in advance as it's a whole day commitment for people.

New players are extremely welcome as well as returning 'veterans' (apparently you're a veteran if you've played twice, a claim that I heavily dispute given my ability to get myself in a mess and do everything in the wrong order). For anyone that hasn't played before but is interested in an epic game of galactic conflict, trade and politics, you'll need to read the rules in advance but it's a friendly group and you won't be 'punished' for not knowing every detail of every option. But do bear in mind that it's a game that might take 10 hours or more. It's good to know what you're getting into :-)

With that length in mind, we'll start at 10.30am. I'll provide some snacks, etc. but bring some lunch (if you think you'll have time to eat it!) and we'll order some pizza in the evening.

So. Eight spots. Who wants to play?

1. Aneurin (Minister of Owning the Game)
2. Paul G (Minister of Providing the Venue)
3. Jamie (Minister for Hidden Roles)
4. Paul C (Minister of Plumbing)
5. Tim (Minister for Peace, Honest)
6. Steve (Minister Without Portfolio)
7. TomW (Minister for Cricket)
8. Beardy TomC (Minister of Renegotiated Alliances)


ADDED by AJK

Here we go - results are in...

Tom W: Xxcha Kingdom or Embers of Muaat
PaulC: Naalu Collective or Mentak Coalition
PaulG: Winnu or Clan of Saar
Steve: Universities of Jol-Nar or Nekro Virus
Jamie: Yin Brotherhood or Shardak-Norr
Tim: Arborec or Ghosts of Creuss
Beardy Tom: Yssaril Tribes or Emirates of Hacan
Aneurin: L1Z1X Mindnet or Barony of Letnev

You shall be known as the 'minister of absence' from now on...
I'll text Steve as I don't think he uses the forum much these days.

Tom C is taking up the last spot - so I think that makes it full... People sure they can commit the whole day to this... I'm looking at you Lizzie, Jamie and Paul C... our newbies vs all these veterans! When we say whole day its 10.30am till like 9pm... if we play quickly.
