We have waited a long time to start. I suggest that we start a game with 3 players. Either that or wait for a 4th beginner, or 2 more experienced players so we have 3 beginngers and 3 experienced. Let me know what you prefer.

We can always start the game with 3 players and if we get more players, we can start a 2nd game.

An equal amount of experienced would be ideal. I'm happy to start with 3 beginners though if necessary. How about everyone else?

I have a couple suggestions. First, let's wait till at least January 2 for a solid start date. People will have more time who might be able to join, and it'll just be easier on us who have already signed on. Second, we could always have a tiny king of the hill turn free for all. If we only have one experienced player, it could be 3 vs 1 till the 1 is dead, then we work vs each other. I prefer to ally, though. Somehow, it just seems more fun to have a partner in galactic domination. This being a beginner game, either way could net some considerable experience.

Or we could play just the three of us, as suggested. This is my favorite option.

I agree, 3 of us unless an experienced person joins, 2nd Jan to start is OK with me in the evening though as I will be back at work then.

I might be interested in playing. I never played against humans, so I should match the target group...

I'll be able to get in my turns until end of January but will have to ask for a break as I travel to the US. Probably won't get any turns in between 25 and 30 January. If that's no problem, I would like to see how far I get Smile

You'll definitely be playing again after that, though, right?

Edit: You said 30 planets per player. 4 interested players making that 120 planets, could I assume small/normal? I'd like to know to accurately test my race.

In the interest of getting this game off the ground, I am setting a racefile deadline of Jan 1st.

If we get mostly beginners, it will be a beginner only game. If we get enough beginners and experienced players, it will be a mixed game. I will size the universe based on how many racefiles I receive.

I know that makes it harder to plan your race design. I would plan your design based on not having experienced players, since it looks like we have mostly beginners interested.

That shouldn't be a problem, we can take that week off.

That sucks, Inquisitor. I hope your heal is complete, like sometimes when it's even stronger than before it broke. Too bad we won't be facing each other this time. Twisted Evil

Yes, if we get 4 players, that would be a good assumption.

But we might have to play with 3 players. And I don't think a tiny universe is a good idea, so in that case we would go small sparse, which will play different.

These are the rules regarding cooperation:

Only one ally shall be set to friend, all others set to enemy.
Battle orders shall be set to "attack who = enemy."
Technology may be exchanged only with an ally.

Though if we end up with just 3 players, we will have to change this to everyone set to enemy to avoid a 2 on 1 situation from the start.

At this point, it is unlikely I think. There are 3 beginner players that have posted interest. The others backed out.

I can wait a few days for a 4th player, it would balance the game a little better I think. But at this rate, if we don't start some games for you guys, you will always be beginners.

Should we let the one experienced player in who showed interest (ludek)?

Yes, the last game had handicaps for experienced players. It was 150 points set to defenses. They also had W set to expensive.

That is good enough I think. We will give him a few days to respond.

So about 15 years ago when Usenet was still a thing I played one competitive game (and lost). Can I sign up as the fourth beginner?

Yes, please get me a racefile as soon as you can and you can be our 4th player.
