    aiken04 reacted to Fnoffen in Best Group Ever   
    And last weekend I actually got it. They made a whole event around it, too. Even paid my train tickets. Two hour train ride from where I live to Stockholm on friday with unboxing/sleeving/bagging on friday evening, a full 6 player game on saturday (took 12 hours including setup, teardown and meal breaks), and another two hour train ride home on sunday.
    I may have not won but it was fun anyway. The most intelligent mathmatician of the group played Jol-Nar and whacked out 4 VP to go from 6 to win in round 5. 1VP with Imperial and 3 (2public + 1secret) in the Status phase.

    Presenting our group's first 5-player game of Twilight Imperium 4th Edition!  This episode includes lots of role-playing as the Embers of Muaat, L1z1x Mindnet, Universities of Jol-Nar, and Naalu Collective grapple with the malevolent Nekro Virus.

    I eagerly await the Space Cats Peace Turtles event coverage!  They actually inspired this idea by talking up the tournament.  In retrospect, I probably should have talked to them earlier.  This project is not intended to compete with them.  In my mind, I was thinking about GEN CON like the Super Bowl of Twilight Imperium... with SCPT being akin to NBC, the main broadcaster, and myself acting like a magazine covering the event in a different medium.

    We just finished our first game of TI4.  I know it's kind late for that, but we were committed to finishing our Imperial Assault campaign before diving into TI4.  The game is Sol Federation vs Emirates of Hacan vs Universities of Jol-Nar vs Barony of Letnev.
    I think we did a pretty good job playing by the rules (there were some minor oversights - nothing big), but please don't come in expecting to see amazing play. We were all figuring things out for the first time. That said, the game was definitely a fun space opera that I'm excited to share with other TI fans.

    Haha - I'll contribute!  The Hacan player opposite me narrowly missed winning by scoring three victory points for the huge number of planets he controlled.  He was likely to score that objective the following round.  I was able to steal victory before then by scoring several points.  First, I used action cards to hijack the galactic senate and dredge up the Crown of Emphidia political agenda.  The Hacan player was elected, making him the owner of the crown and its one victory point.  Having taken Warfare II as one of my strategy cards (it was a 4 player game), I then broke through his fleet and on the following action used a Cruiser with stasis capsules to fly a ground force three spaces through a wormhole, steal one of his artifact planets, and gain the Crown of Emphidia in the process.  It all came together!
