Twilight Imperium 3rd Edition

  • Aug 11, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • James' Place

Newbies to TI welcome. Fairly heavy and thematic 4x game with an everything and the kitchen sink approach to adding game mechanics.

It's a bit like this: http://vimeo.com/51447727

If you don't know the rules please try to show up around noon so that we can go over them before the game starts. Aiming to start the game itself at around 1:30 and break for food at some point. Be forewarned that this is a long haul, but I'll try to speed it along and if we're still playing at 8 I'd be comfortable calling it.

If you'd like to teach yourself the rules you can find them compiled here:

I have the expansions but for the sake of simplicity I'm only planning on adding the extra units & racial tech, the expanded diplomacy system, and the Shattered Empire strategy cards.

I own cats, if anyone has allergies I can try looking into other venues but can't promise anything.

    I need to abort - I just have too much going on to lose an entire Sunday. Frowny face. :(

      8-player sounds interesting but we'll need to play the game enough that people have most of their turns planned out before they get to them for that to be a safe option. If people are taking long turns then waiting through 7 of them is liable to become intolerable.

      It's a good point, although it's almost as true of 6 players as it is of 8. Definitely brings it into the 'set aside your whole day' category, though.

    Noticed yesterday that the buzzer for my door is broken (makes a tiny electrical hum probably 30 decibels lower than it should). I'll try to make sure I can hear it anyway but would suggest calling my cell when you get here:[masked]
