Post [NEW PLAYERS LOOK HERE] Waiting list
We have moved to a new site. Please visit http://www.ti3pbf.com to sign up to play.

Instructions for players:
If you wish to play a game of Twilight Imperium 3rd Edition on this board, please post in this thread and state your preferences using the abbreviations explained below. You will then be added to the list and hopefully get invited soon. You should usually expect a waiting time of a couple of weeks.

Instructions for GMs:
If you wish to host a game, it is suggested you invite players according to this list. Exceptions in case you wish to play with specific people (friends, rematch groups, etc.) are allowed, of course. In order to have a new subforum created for you, please send a PM to any board moderator (shaunm, Sunchaser or Zilfalon).

Note: This list is sorted ascending according to
1) number of games on this board as a player*,
2) starting date of latest game,
3) date of request.

*Any players GMing at least one game are treated as if playing in one less game, but sorted below those with an equal number of games. Replacement games are not counted unless players joined them at a very early stage.

C: Core Game

SAW: Setup as written (also known as star-by-star setup)

RAW: Rules as written (if you just want to play as close to RAW as possible. This includes the options TTR and SAW if not stated otherwise.)
BGGB: BGGB house rules (includes F, TTV and Asym, so no need to state them): http://ti3pbf.com/wiki/BGGB_House_Rules

6P: 6 player game
8P: 8 player game

You can add an exclamation mark (!) if your game must have that option and a minus sign (-) if you wouldn't want that option, e.g. "F!" for "must use both expansions" or "Asym-" for "no asymmetric galaxies (but I don't care if symmetric preset or RAW)".

Post Re: [NEW PLAYERS LOOK HERE] Waiting list
This is a great idea. I wonder who came up with it...

I went through the list and checked if any of them found a game since their request. I moved those who found one to the bottom but didn't throw anyone off the list. Maybe the players in a game should verify that they are still looking for a game.

Also I added myself to the list as I'd be interested in joining another game, probably an 8 player game.

The Preference column is meant to indicate what kind of game you are looking for.
I suggest a system similar to the one for BSG on BGG, i.e. using abbreviations for the expansions and variants you are looking for.
With such a system a GM has an idea which players would be interested in his game.

Here are some abbreviations shaun suggested in a PM and I refined a little bit:
Preference wrote:
C: Core Game
SE: Shattered Empire expansion
SotT: Shard of the Throne expansion
F: Full Game (Shattered Empire and Shards of the Throne)
SC: Scenario Games (Fall of the Empire, Fate of the Empire, etc.)

TTR: Original Tech Tree
TTV: Aweberman's variant tech tree (see http://boardgamegeek.com/image/1297346/ ... large)

SAW: Setup as written
Sym: Symmetric preset galaxy
Asym: Asymmetric preset galaxy

RAW: Rules as written (if you just want to play as close to RAW as possible.)

6P: 6 player game
8P: 8 player game


You can add an exclamation mark (!) if your game must have that option and a minus sign (-) if you wouldn't want that option, e.g. "F!" for "must use both expansions" or "-Asym" for "no asymmetric galaxies (but I don't care if symmetric preset or RAW)".
Hence my preference mean: I would like to play an 8 Player game (but 6 is OK, too). It must use both expansions, the variant Tech Tree and an asymmetric setup.

Eventually the list can be simpler; some columns won't really be necessary, especially "Requested" as player would just be put at the bottom of the list again. But as shaun already said, the list is not necessary but rather a suggestion.

Post Re: [NEW PLAYERS LOOK HERE] Waiting list
Added your preferences in my post and a link to the variant Tech Tree.

@shaun:
Do we want to maintain the list in the first post (and we update it) or should everyone just post an updated list themselves?
I'd rather go with the former as it's not that easy to edit the table in a bowser.

Post Re: [NEW PLAYERS LOOK HERE] Waiting list
The list using the code environment looks great, thanks Sunchaser. I've copied it to my first post so we can maintain the current list there. I think it's easier for GMs to find that way.

Post Re: [NEW PLAYERS LOOK HERE] Waiting list
I've just sent out a PM to all players on the list above requesting them to confirm/specify or decline their interest so we can fill in the gaps.

Post Re: [NEW PLAYERS LOOK HERE] Waiting list
Hello,

I would like to sign up too.

(Date of request: November 27th, 2012.)

My preferences:

F: Full Game (Shattered Empire and Shards of the Throne)
TTR: Original Tech Tree
Sym: Symmetric preset galaxy
RAW: Rules as written (if you just want to play as close to RAW as possible.)
6P: 6 player game

Of these, the 6P is a "soft" preference, I'd join a 8P game too if need be. The rest, uhm, well, I kinda really prefer that. :)

This is a great idea. You can remove me from the waiting list. The one game I am already in is all I can handle with current work schedule.
