War and Politics

Yesterday 5 tribes went to war, did some trading, made alliances and generally had a great time. Yeah Twilight Imperium 4 made it to,the table with 5 people playing it.

I’m just going to say wow! The politics, the ebb and flow of alliances, deal making, attempting Jedi mind tricks. The trading and agenda phase aided and enhanced all of this. One of those deals between red and green gave green the centre of the known universe Mecatol Rex. Which afterwards quickly went south and saw their two massive space fleets duking it out. Further alliances were formed, lines drawn. But this was all a distraction that allowed green to keep Mecatol Rex and score some easy points.

My starting position seemed anomaly heavy and planet light, and boxed me in stopping me expanding out, or even getting to the centre of the universe to claim it for my own.

Yeah this game is fastly becoming a favourite. Hopefully I’ll be able to get it to the table a couple times a year. If it gets out that many times I’ll be really happy. I’d love to get it out to the table again real soon, but I don’t see how with the current schedule of games planned that it’s possible. In the next 2 weeks 2 campaigns start, Charterstone and Gloomhaven. Both are legacy style games as well, that are going to be running for a few weeks. Then in February we start our next MtG league using the Rivals for Ixalan set that comes out on the 20th January.

  1. So in your previous blogs you discuss WotC and MTG and how you feel they are being unfair in banning people who upset them and not stamping down on those who should be, because their face fits. Next thing you on about MTG league, so do you approve of them or not?

    1. The magic league is something our game group runs. Nothing to do with WotC or any store.
      I can enjoy the game itself whilst not liking how WotC are doing things.

      1. I still feel it comes over a bit “I don’t approve of your policy but I’ll not take stand against it” there are other games of this type out there, you could turn to, will you still buy their products?

    1. I don’t disagree with you on that assessment. I’m definitely not going to invest in their digital stuff. Cards? I’m not sure yet. I’ll probably make that decision in the next couple of weeks or so after seeing how things turn out.

      1. That’s fair, you have this soapbox to make statement both light and with gravity. If you know how to make a online presence with regards to this I’ll sign up for it!
