Announcing a new Meetup for Riverdale Gaming Conclave (by College Park)!

What: Conquer the Universe! (strategy-economic)

When: Saturday, December 11,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Joe's House
5609 Silk Tree Dr
Riverdale, MD 20737

Conquer the Universe!

In order to make sure we have a critical mass, I'll schedule two related games in order to make sure we have enough players to play at least one of them. Both are deep strategy games as opposed to light fast games.

#1) Twilight Imperium (3rd edition)

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. I've never played but my impression is that you don't usually eliminate other players, just rough them up a bit in your bid for galactic domination! Figure at least six hours.

For more info, see:

#2) Starcraft the Boardgame

This is also a build, research, and conquer your neighbors game, based on the computer game but really something different entirely. Having played the computer game will make you appreciate the theme more but is not necessary to play. This is more combat oriented than Twilight Imperium. Also shorter I think.
