Hi all,

Jamie, Tom and I had a good 3 player game at the weekend but 6 would be excellent and it seems lots of people are up for it but not so much at a club meet up and not at late notice.

I'm happy to host.

1. SamS
2. Jamie
3. Scott
4. Young Sam
5.
6.

1st reserve JohnH
2nd reserve Neil
3rd reserve Tom

Newbies welcome, though it would help if you watch rahdo run through it first. I'd also be happy to play a smaller game by way of introducing in a less scary environment.

I would potentially be up for that. I'd have to check my schedule, though.

Thanks Sam.

Here's a couple of videos worth checking out:

A brief overview of Eclipse (14 mins): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4LevjuhYqc
More in depth look at how to play (33 mins): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc2-9B2rC2g

We'll be playing with the Rise of the Ancients expansion, which makes a lot of improvements to the (already awesome) base game; incl. addressing the OP plasma missiles issue (though after what what happened on Sunday, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the anti-missile tech in my copy of RotA, goes 'missing').

Good to have you in Scott - and thanks for the post Jamie.
Shall we say Sunday the 7th? (going to send out a couple of invites to friends).

At your house, Sam? Sunday 7th is Red Deer day. I do want to play, though, I'm free in Feb after all.

Ah, good point. The Saturday works fine for me if people have no objections.

Space 4X weekend; woo...

What time are we starting this Sam? (for me, around 1pm or later would be best)

Also, looks like we have 3 candidates for the 2 remaining seats; would be super awesome to get 6 players...

1pm is fine by me.

Yes, there are 3 interested parties for the remaining 2 seats, but I'll take a definite 'yes' from anyone - listed or not!

Sorry folks, was really looking forward to this, but I'm really quite unwell, so I can't make it now Sad

Sorry to hear you're not well Scott; hope you have a speedy recovery mate. Smile

Looks like we're down to 3 now for Eclipse, grim! Just can't get the players; going to have to start bribing people at this rate...

These fools don't know what they're missing.

Can we make it 1:30? Got a few things to do in the morning and I don't need an excuse to slack off!

Looking forward to obliterating your ships, civilian populations, hopes and dreams.
