With both expansions. Expansion rules taught, but basic knowledge of Galaxy Trucker recommended so your brain doesn't melt trying to keep track of what everything does while you're building your ship.

Friday 6-8pm (1800-2000)

Part 1 ('Charge of the Wolf Riders') of my running of the entire 5 part 'Summer League' campaign. Each scenario includes new rules, enemies, and objectives.

Each scenario is self contained, so it is not necessary to play any of the other scenarios to play this.

Rules taught.

Probably will finish closer to 12:30 or 1am, but had to choose either a 4 or 6 hour event, so went with 6.

A professionally released variant of History of the World, taking place in Japan.

Special abilites exist for most the armies each player controls, making there be more variety than just the 'number of armies' and 'naval power?' that differentiated the armies in History of the World.

My personal favorite in the History of the World series, but I don't get to play it as often as I'd like as it's best 4-6 players and noone else has heard of it.

I fully translated the game, so no Japanese knowledge needed. Rules of course taught.
