Okay, my feeling is that if there are less then half the players still in the game, it is a good time to end.

First of all, to all who are in the game - well done, congratulations - it was a good game. Hopefully you all enjoyed the game.

Secondly I'd like to offer my apologies, for messing up a bit with hosting. My life since February has had a few unexpected events, including moving due to relationship issues, my father passing away, and my job description getting changed quite drastically.

Finally declaring a winner now is a little silly. There is a lot of game still ahead. And things can change a lot in that time.

Anyway reading the game state summary from people I was most amazed - there was a lot of politicking, diplomacy, duplication and general mayhem going on.

So now... the winner...

There were two main contenders. The first of course was the Asgard. The Asgard own a reasonable chunk of the galaxy. On an individual basis they are way in front. Economically they are close to 50k in 2460.

The second contender is the Speck/Dark Angel/Q-Tip alliance. Together they control an area of space about the same size. Economically the alliance is about the same as the Asgards.

I am going to call the 3-way alliance the winners at this point. The main thing in their favour is they currently have a higher total technology base, and I think they are in a better place to deal with the Wobbler, Legion situation. Additionally I think the Asgard were not aware of the full situation around them, and that lack of intelligence might cost them a bit when push came to Armageddon Nubians... [I'll put some explanations below]

So congratulations to:

  • Trophy Richard O'Shaughnessy / Speck v2
  • Trophy Casey Steadman / The Dark Angels
  • Trophy Freddy Hansen / Q-Tips


Now for the notable mentions: First Richard Hannen / The Asgard.
Not only was Richard controlling the largest chunk of space single handedly, Richard was mentioned multiple times as playing fairly, honestly and generally well by the other players. Obviously he was going to be there at the end of game, and to be fair the Alliance would have got a run for their money. Unfortunately for Richard, his allies were not as strong as he thought...
So second place, and "Best and Fairest" goes to Richard Hannen. Angel

Lurking The "Diplomacy" award goes to the Ethereals. It seems everyone thought the Ethereals were allied to them! I'll leave it up to ForceUser to tell the world exactly what the Ethereals were up to, but for now say well done: Maybe you should become an ambassador? Whisper

If you want to post your thoughts on the game, feel free to post below this forum. I have got some excellent notes from a few of you, but I would rather you post them yourselves. In particular, ForceUser, whose side were you really on?
