  1. Hmmm. That’s a tricky one. My first inclination is that it’s essentially a 3rd agenda and so he would get to vote on the older law, but I could certainly see an argument for it being a subset of the miscount voting.

    There is also a question of whether anyone can play riders on the new vote. If they can, then the one player should also be able to vote on it (and potentially play a rider on that one as well), but if the new vote is considered a subset of the miscount agenda, then I would say no one can play riders on it.


    ok, talking it through like that, I definitely come down on the side of it being a whole new vote. We’ve had other situations where a rider was basically a free benefit, so that doesn’t worry me, and keeping it as a 3rd vote is simpler.

    I just hate that I have been playing TI3 with 8 players for years and now TI4 has only 6 players.
    Could really use components for 8 and more exploration tiles for larger set up.

    Shouldn’t be too difficult to add hoc something until an 8 player expansion comes out. It’s not like they introduced a bunch of new units, you can just use the old units for 2 players. The old hexes will leave a bit of a gap on the board, but that shouldn’t be a problem. Hardest thing would be creating 2 new tech decks, but since they don’t need to be randomized or hidden or anything, a scanner and printer should sort that.

    despite having hundreds of similar-sized ships encircling the planet

    I have the impression that after the initial conquest most of the fleet withdrew and there was just the one control ship at that point.

    Doesn't change your fundamental point, but still...

  4. It’s no different that Tony and Peter hugging, Quill and Gamora, Carol going “hi, Peter Parker”, Wong “you want MORE?”, assorted monologue-ing.

    I just rewatched the film again, and the girls don’t even pause, really. Carol takes the glove and they all start moving toward the goal while more woman join up.

    Whole lot of discussion for absolutely nothing. If there had been a dramatic moment when Cap, IM, Thor, T’Challa, Spidey, Bucky, Sam, et.al. had a money shot it wouldn’t even warrant a comment. Oh, wait, there is, in this movie and the previous ones.

    The Rule of Eleven; my simian intellect just can't grok it.

    I understand the theory, I just don’t see the point as it only works if the opponent sets up 90* to the board edge at exactly range 1. Deploy rotated a few degrees and it’s useless.


    Same with people who claim you can gain useful information from the ID marked on the back of my v.1 dials. If you’re wasting brainpower trying to figure out how my dial is oriented relative to the text I wrote on the back, that’s brainpower you’re not using to actually play the game.

  6. Let’s see, to not be lost watching endgame, I’d say you need to have seen

    iron man 1

    captain America 1

    avengers 1

    winter soldier

    Civil War

    guardians 1

    infinity war

    The after credits scene from ant man and the wasp

    doctor strange wouldn’t be out of line, but not super necessary

    be aware of the existence of captain marvel, but you don’t really need to have seen her film. (It’s really good though)


    that should cover the most things

  7. As far as the oscars, I think what is really deserved is some sort of special achievement award. Yeah, the movie Endgame on it’s own isn’t really an Oscar flick, but it’s the culmination of 22 (solid) films that all connected. Endgame doesn’t deserve an Oscar, but the MCU does.

    For that matter, how much infrastructure like, say, farmland, has gone fallow in the last 5 years. If the world's population spontaneously doubled we'd not be in the best of situations. 

    Oh, definitely. Undoing the snap wil cause waaaay more devastation than it did originally. Farmland no longer being cultivated, living spaces no longer maintained, factories no longer producing as much. Probably a baby boom right after the snap, so population ends up being much worse than before.

    and that’s just from sapient life. If we take them at their word that it was ALL life, that might mitigate the food shortages a tab, but most of nature would have already reestablished equilibrium again. Imagine the rat population in New York City suddenly doubling. Strains on ecosystems resulting lots of animals starving. Decaying bodies leading to disease hazards.

    There’s a lot to gloss over.

    The problem is Steve staying in the past CAN'T be compatible or a stable time loop. The scene with him and Peggy dancing appears to be set in the 1940s/early 1950s based on the cars. However there's plenty of other material this would directly contradict. For one, Peggy had an entirely different family between the first Captain America and when Steve woke up in the present day. That couldn't have happened had she been with Steve all that time (I mean I'd screw over causality for Hayley Atwell, too, but that's neither here nor there).

    As far as I know, we don’t know anything about Peggy’s husband before. I imagine she and Steve would have needed to invent a cover identity for him and he would have needed to lay low and not draw attention to himself, so the guy she was talking about in the interview could have been him all along, and the dementia covers the modern day discrepancies.

    Later Imperial V-wings didn't have astromech droids. (maybe replace it by a system slot?)

    Receipts please

    The legends entry on wookieepedia does say that

    In the early stages of the New Order, new V-wing models were commissioned. The new models of the V-wing star fighter were repainted with a black stripe. These craft featured Imperial livery and lacked an astromech droid.“


    The canon entry doesn't however, although the canon entry is virtually empty.

  11. Do You Own Huge Ships Already?  Yes. 7 of them, I think. If you count a proxy Serenity 

    Did You Play Epic in 1.0, or Were They Dustables?  Played a few times, wanted to play more but couldn’t find opponents.

    Do You Plan to Play Huge Ships in 2.0 (in Standard/Huge/Epic battles)?  Yes. In standard it will depend on how they implement things.

    Do You Plan To Play Epic Missions?  We’ll see how they implement.

     What is Your Biggest Draw to Epic 2.0?  More players

    Do the buildings have to be the official ones or will any small scale building work if it fits the map?

    For tournaments it has to be the official PP buildings from the current release. For casual games, lots of people are using the buildings from the original game. The new ones are much nicer sculpts though.
