I'm interested.
I have played two games against humans a few years ago (winning the first in an allied victory, got owned in the second), so I'm of a fourth type - "rusty beginner". Smile

I'll be sending my race file shortly.

Rusty beginners do not need to take handicap. Spend all RW points as you wish.

Express response Cool

You guys might want to make specific invitations to the 3 new autohost members who posted in the thread in the bar. (Just so the don't miss it.)

No sense having them disappointed, and loosing interest.

Thank you for the e-mails. I'm interested. Very Happy

Like Misza, I also would fit the "rusty beginner" category. I played in one game against humans about 10+ years ago.

I can't wait to start the game too, but stars! is a real-life-friendly game so lets give a chance to those who were absent for some time. I'll email again to those beginners who were willing to play the game. slimdrag00n will join us in some time.

Look at the other game announcement. None of them started in a few days. And the game itself is not fast paced, taking several months.
So let's turn our passion into patience Wink

Yeah sometimes games take couple weeks to get ready and get players. Once we get more players then we all need time to make races as well.
For my self maybe if we get the other players this week and then the next week is given for us to make and test races then hunting season will be about over and ill have time to play.

One game to about year 20, it was canceled so that doesn't really count. We restarted and are on year 59. So basically my experience is just this one current game that is not complete.
Throw me under the beginner category.

room for one more?
experience is a few games with my brother but never against anybody else. We both started playing at the same time too so not really much room for learning.

can we form alliances in game? it doesn't say anything about that in the rules, just that you can't before the game starts. Would I be correct in assuming that alliances in game are OK?

[edit] Why does nobody allow CA?
is it because it would be way too easy?

Yes, it would be correct.
No pre-game alliances restriction means that players are not allowed to optimize their races for future alliance with particular player.
There is no restrictions on in-game diplomacy, however please note that only one player can be a winner.
