First slot filled for Epic Game Day is Twilight Imperium 3rd.
This game is now offical!
Twilight Imperium Third Edition is an epic empire-building game of interstellar conflict, trade, and struggle for power. Players take the roles of ancient galactic civilizations, each seeking to seize the imperial throne via warfare, diplomacy, and technological progression. With geomorphic board tiles, exquisite plastic miniatures, hundreds of cards, and introducing a rich set of strategic dimensions that allows each player to refocus their game-plan, the original designer Christian T. Petersen has seamlessly incorporated the better qualities of other recently popular games to improve on the game-play of the original TI, making it at once perfectly well-rounded and pleasantly familiar to experienced gamers.
Please read all of the following before RSVPing.
Epic Game Day will feature 3-ish games of epic proportions. All the games being played will be:
1. Long - most will require 4 - 8 hours though some could run even longer. Please be prepared to stay until your game is finished. These games generally will "break" if a player drops out and those that remain will not be happy about someone leaving.
2. Very Involved - These are not casual games or a game one can "just pick up" unless they are experienced gamers. These are not teaching sessions or "Learn the game" sessions. You do not need to know how to play the game you sign up for; someone will be explaining the game, but you should be capable of picking up the game and playing it without constant help with this type of instruction. in short; if you are an experienced gamer you are fine.
Each game scheduled will have two requirements that need to be met to actually be run on Epic Game Day - a person to officially run the game and the minimum number of players to play the game. The person running the game will also play the game. Games that do not have the minimum requirement met a week or two before Epic Game Day will be canceled in order to give enough time for those who signed up for the game to sign up for a different game. In this way there will be more games originally scheduled than will be available when Epic Game Day rolls around. Don't be sad if your game gets canceled due to lack of host or player - it is going to happen to a couple games. Better yet, if you are signed up for a game than needs a host or more players go find some people to fill the game up!
