Oooh, tricky.

On the one hand, I do rather want to play against human players. On the other... I'm already signed up for Fledgling Admirals which, honestly, look like a far more noob-friendly game, could start any day now, and I do not want to play in two games at once.

Yes, these are set up to be a quick game (in Stars! time) of about 6 months and it's "fast paced" at 3 turns a week so you have to be sure you can handle the detail work in that time frame.

This is not a bad setup for a beginner as you'll learn a lot about the basic of Stars as in 'why does he have CC or BB while I still only have DDs' because 'I'm not growing fast enough'. The only way to learn is to play.

Yes, playing in two games that start anywhere near each other would be too much work, I just but this out there and if we can get four players I'll set up the game.

I'm in a similar place here - if FA10 ever does get off the ground, I very much want to play that one, and I definitely don't want to do two at once. Otherwise I'd be all-in. Wish we had some word from Altruist on FA10 - it's been nearly a month since any sign of him.


Keep calm and carry on!

Same! If that one falls through, this game would be oversubscribed.
