Cosmic Encounter

Friday night Cosmic Encounter, by popular demand. Don't know about Cosmic Encounter? It's a sci-fi themed board game in which players, each with a unique alien power, compete to establish colonies on remote planets. The game can be unpredictable, but offers plenty of opportunity for strategic play.

      The roads are still ok though...Gorham's a mess, of course, but South Portland & Scarborough seem to be holding up fine.

    There are some official team rules we might want to try, given the size of the group. Basically it's teams of two (and possibly a "team" of one) that sit across from each other, with some rules about how alliances work with your teammate. It's pretty straightforward. In any case, we'll try to keep things from being too crazy, for the sake of people who are new to the game.

      That sounds very interesting.

      Although I haven't tried the team rules, I think one of the benefits is that you feel like it's your (team's) turn more often. It might help the new players too, to have someone they can actually trust!

    Anyone got a folding table they can bring?

    April 10, 2013

    • Scott

      I have a couple I can bring.

      I picked up a table and a couple of extra chairs today, so we should be set. But if anyone has a nice folding chair they want to bring, you're welcome to - what I have looks fine but they're pretty basic.

    Ok, I'm definite on this now. We can do it at my place if it's all regulars.

      I may be able to borrow a folding table from some friends of mine - I'll check with them tonight.

      April 10, 2013

    • Scott

      That would work. If not, I'm sure someone else has one.

    Thanks Tom although its to bad Jen isn't coming , she seemed to pick it up pretty fast.

    April 10, 2013

  • Tom M.

    Probable yes on this - not definite at this point though

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
