Conquer the Universe! (strategy-economic)

  • Jan 26, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • Joe's House

Conquer the Universe, back by popular demand!

Twilight Imperium (3rd edition) (with both expansions if folks are up for it)

Starting out with your homeworld, explore the surrounding star systems, build up your technology and fleets, and crush your neighbors! Also includes an interesting political system with periodic votes on changing the rules and dynamic alliances. This is considered to be a classic sci-fi board game.  You don't usually eliminate other players, just rough them up a bit in your bid for galactic domination! Figure at least six to eight hours.  It's very important that no one leave early so don't sign up if you're not in it for the long haul!

For more info, see: http://www.boardgameg...

I'd be happy to open up more tables if additional copies are available.

Since this is a very complicated game, newbies should show up at 11am so I can get you oriented.  Let me know if you'll be taking me up on this offer and don't come late!

In order to keep things moving along (which can sometimes be an issue), we'll be handing around a one-minute timer.  All moves will need to be finished before the timer goes off so you'll need to plan ahead.  :)

    Hylar laser cannons don't give +1 to automated turrets during fighter barrage! (or to assault cannon). Aside from that good fun

    Any chance I can get a ride from Greenbelt to Joe's house this Saturday? I can still make it otherwise but it will be loads more convenient (and less cold) if someone's willing to swing by for me.

      I think Greenbelt is the closest metro stop to Joe's, but haven't looked closely at that. I live in DC so I am taking metro out that way.

    • Joseph

      Yes, that's right! Greenbelt station is maybe five minutes away by car.

    I screwed up last meetup. I thought the person who had Sunrise City wasn't going to be able to bring it, and found out after the Meetup that he had actually brought it. Joseph, do you remember who that was? I want to ask if they are going to give me another chance to play it?

    January 20, 2013

    • Billy A.

      Thanks, I message him and see if he can bring it again.

      i'll be happy to bring it along,but i'll probably be playing twilight, and i'm not sure others know how to teach it.

    Well, Alex hasn't responded to my e-mail (so maybe he's not playing anyway) and Mike was thinking of a different game so he doesn't have a copy. One thought is that I could open up a second table for Eclipse, which is also a very fun epic space game for six. The original six players would get first choice of game but otherwise we could just divide up between the two. I'll open up the enrollment with this plan in mind, if folks are good with it.

    Also judging by the limit 6 it looks like no second table has opened yet?

    January 22, 2013

  • Mike F.

    I also have a copy of the game.

    January 20, 2013

    • Joseph

      Mike, so you can commit to bringing a second copy? If so, I'll open up the second table.

      January 21, 2013

    Alex, by "both expansions!", are you saying you want to play with both expansions or are you saying that you have a copy of TI with both expansions that you would like to bring to open up a second table?

    January 6, 2013

    • alex

      Oh, both! I have the game and both expansions and would like to play them. Can bring large gaming table as well if needed.

      January 6, 2013

    • Joseph

      If you are willing to commit to bringing them, I'd be happy to open up a second table. No need to bring another table I think.
