Moving on, Ti3 newbies game

A while back when I put out the call for F:AT Invitational players, some folks expressed interest in playing in a beginners game.

I have setup a 4 player game, Thadd has a spot reserved that leaves open 3 more spots.
please post a reply to this if you want to play. If I get enough folks interested inplaying i will run more than one game. Also those interested in learning and not playing will be invited to follow along in the forum for the game.

So if your not too busy playing that new porno plotted euro game and want to learn how to play a real game then post away.

In order to be invited you need to PM me an email address on BGG.

I am interested in playing, although I am not new to the game.

I would love to play, but I have a business trip in January and won't be able to play during that time. So many galaxies to conquer, so little time.

Same here. I'd love to play, but since 1) I'm unfamiliar with the rules and 2) I have never played before, I think that successfully precludes me from playing.

Nevertheless, I'd love to see the saga for four nerds fighting for galactic supremacy!

Thaadd said...

Y'know - not to state the obvious, but this IS a newbie game. Where else would you try playing?

I've played only a handful of games, and none with SE. You should be fine.

Speaking as a player (not the person in charge!) if you have to travel for a week or whatnot, think the rest of us could likely pause if it was agreed to aforehand.

Will this game have magic galactic arms that you can't fly into?

Huh?

Michael Barnes said...

Is that what happens in EVENT HORIZON?

mtlawson said...

I'm with Juniper. I'd like to play, but to be honest I don't have the time right now to study the rules.

Please keep the game up in the forum, Malloc.

Malloc said...

If you can't or do not want to play I will open the Google group
(when i make it) up to people who just want to follow the moves players make and ask questions.

I do need you email PM'ed to me on bgg to add you however.

Mr Skeletor said...

Wait, it's a 2d map? What the fuck?
ANd here I was thinking it was just my glasses that wern't working.

How the fuck can space be epic in 2 dimensions?

Matt said...

Hello everyone,

this is my first post here. malloc just dropped me a line saying that I'm the fourth player in his game. Yay!

I don't know what to expect, however. I bought the game (including expansion) at the Essen fair this year, read the manuals twice and played it once with two other guys.

This will be fun!

KingPut said...

I'll be a 5th (back up player). Or if you go to a 6 player game I'd like in.

Malloc said...

I think we may goto 6, the 4 player is wierd in that everyone gets 2 strats.

Peter is in.

we have room for one more player.

Malloc said...

Again anyone is welcome to watch and learn, I will need your email sent to me via geekmail on BGG to add you to the google group.

Muzza said...

Ooh ooh ooh! Pick me pick me!

Geekmail sent.

I know it's off topic, but did anyone ever play TI 3: Armada (Disk Wars)? FFG has them on sale at some great prices at http://store.fantasyflightgames.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=57.

I picked up a bunch of them along with Range Wars sets that I'd been wanting for some time.

Malloc said...

Don't know if that stuff is any good but i just ordered $50 worth to find out.

I was close to ordering some stuff, anchored by Perikles. Then I took a look at some of the images with wooden cubes on a board that are representing...whatever, came to my senses, and decided not to order.

It really sucks that I can't get to the TI wiki from work. I'd play a newbie game just to shoot the sh!t with some of our readers.

Good luck, and everyone make sure to backstab and/or kill Malloc. Repeatedly. And each time, say, "No, man, I mean it this time. I've got yer back." Then STAB STAB STAB

Then use the newbie defense. "Huh? Oh, sorry man!"

Thaadd said...

I've gotta bow out. My home computer just went belly up (power supply, something I hope will be a quick fix... providing it did not fry other things in the week or so of instability. It took me a bit to figure out the whole 'why is my computer so quiet, oh, no fan!' bit.

That leaves just work for reading, doing moves, and I've been getting slammed by the hell season here (10, 12 hour days...). Maybe in the spring. I vaguely recall being caught up around February last year :P
