Twilight Imperium - Learn to Play

Join us in playing Twilight Imperium, a massively epic space empire game.

If you are interested in learning how to play Twilight Imperium, this session is for you. Beginners are welcomed and encouraged. Experienced players are welcome as well, but as this session will cater toward beginners, we will be using very few optional rules to help streamline the experience.

We will be using the Variant Strategy Cards because they are better than the base set. We'll also be using artifacts because they speed up the game.

If you would like to take a look at the rules, you can find them here. The bulk of the game play is found under the Tactical Action section found on page 10.

As this can be an all day game, please make sure you'll be able to stay for the duration.

Chosen races:

Federation of Sol
Universities of Jol-Nar
L1Z1X Mindnet
Mentak Coalition
Emirates of Hacan
Sardakk N'Orr

      I don't know who to ask about this, so I guess I will ask you. Does this meetup ever do M:TG casual gaming meet ups? Cause I have been searching for mtg groups and only found this grp and 2 others but no references to magic. Please help if you can, cause I really would like to play. :) thank you in advance for any suggestions. Thx

      Hi Paul! We have never had a MTG meetup to my knowledge, but you are certainly welcome to suggest it and see if people are interested!

      Nice job on sneaking in the win. I think in the future I'll have to direct a lot of my resources toward my secret objective. Also have to convince other people ahead of me in choose order to not let the leader take Bureaucracy. :)

    @Brian: I'd like to play as the Federation of Sol, even though I'd have much preferred a choice with the clan of Saar or especially the more exotic races. A nice reference to humanity will do, though. Jeez, those ground-troop rats! :P

    I'd love to build the learning structure of TI3, rather than try to play with experienced players right away, which is what I've done already. I'm excited for a new angle. Let the Battle for Imperium Rex begin!

    Sorry everyone. I will not be able to attend. I double booked on the day this event is scheduled and I wish I hadn't. I really like this game a lot and I'm jealous that you guys get to play, but I am sure there will be plenty of opportunities to play again :).
    I would like to add that if anyone wants to play magic (mtg), please let me know. I can play any of the times that I have listed on my profile, except this weekend lol. Well happy hunting! I look forward to meeting everyone soon.

    Sorry I had to cancel my RSVP. I have plans in the evening and this play having lots of new folks may run longer than I am able to stay. I don't want to have to leave towards the end. Hope you all enjoy and that more folks are able to come to future TI games.
