Twilight Empire

Postby Apollyon » Mon Jun 10, 2013 11:40 am

Has anyone played TE?
Me and 5 friends spent all saturday playing it and it was a blast! Not a single moment of boredom for 10h+ as you are either constantly following what the other players are doing or pondering what your next step is going to be. It was just the second time playing for me and it went much better than the first time meaning i was not wiped out from the map before the end of the game. Still came last by victory points though. :-)
I need to get much better at balancing production/research/expansion in an effective way. My favourite moment of the game was when i used an action card to jump through an enemy system to an unoccupied one where i took a planet with an ancient artifact(=victory point). This somehow ended the stalemate between blue and black players and all hell broke loose in that part of the galaxy.  :shock:

I've wanted to play this, but I'm not gonna drop 90 bucks on a game I know I'll only convince my friends to play with me once or twice out of sheer complexity.

I've been wanting to play this for years.  I'm deeply interested in these sorts of games anyway and complexity is rarely an issue for me.  Sadly, can't afford it.

I played this game without the expansions a few years ago and it was awesome, I have been lobbying with a couple of people here to put some cash together and buy a copy for our gaming group but to no avail.

Why the hell does it have to cost damn near 90 quid?!
