How new do you have to be? I am playing one game here and have played 2 IRL, so I am assuming I am under a hypothetical experience ceiling still, but I just thought I would ask.


I want to give priority to people who never played before, but I do not think we have 6 of those. I think you are "newbie enough" to join in.

Alright and if we get another person who has never played before show up between now and game start, I will gladly relinquish my spot to them.

I am new!

I have played four times in-real-life, including the Qualifying Round and the Semi-Finals at the 2012 World Boardgaming Championships.
(but I am still not very good)

So can I play?

I think so. I will start recruiting.

For all you beginners, some helpful links:

http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/63745/strategy-guide-to-twilight-imperium

A fairly comprehensive guide to Twilight Imperium. A must-read, IMHO. It tells you all the basics; what to watch out for, how to act, what you should keep an eye on, and so forth.

http://timp3.forumprofi.de/players-corner-f15/vassal-tutorial-for-new-players-t657.html

Vassal tutorial.

We will, in any case, be using Vassal 3.2.2 or higher, and module version 1.11b5.

Download Link to module version (1.11b5): http://ubuntuone.com/7j2hbb5DVuJofpk6GBbMXK
Download Link to Vassal version (3.2.8): http://www.vassalengine.org/

Get both, install Vassal. Open the downloaded module, set your player name / handle / avatar name / name you'll be known as / etc. and your password. Make sure you remember that password!

Invitation sent to:

Da_Brick
perfischer
petrie000
PorkStewJoe
TorukMakto
War Man
xFoRc3XV
Yskonyn

Prerequisites:

- you must be a newbie / noob / beginner in Twilight Imperium
- you must have (access to) the full game including both expansions, as you will need to be able to check the text of Action Cards and Political Cards yourself
- you must be able to commit to logging in and checking the board at the very least once per day for several months, as that is how long the game is going to last (count on 6 to 8 months)

You can also respond there.

While the exact rules, optional rules, etc. are yet to be decided, count on:

  • 6 player game
  • full game (incl. Shattered Empire + Shards of the Throne)
  • preset map (I will generate one for you)
  • symmetric map (I will strive to make the game interesting, interactive and balanced; 100% simply isn't possible, but no single player will have a hugely better or strictly worse starting position than any other)

As you see there are only 6 spots and 8 invitations, and some not-quite-really newbies also indicated interest. So only respond if you really can commit.

Hi guys!
Completely new to TI3 and this community. Have been browsing the forums for about two weeks now. The game will be delivered tomorrow if the mailman will be able to find my house. ;)

Looking forward to get going!

I've set up Vassal as well and am very interested, if some of the above don't wind up committing.
