Hi folks,

I am looking for a group interested to play Twilight Struggle, Game of Thrones, Eclipse, Merchants and Marauders or others heavy games.

I live in Port Coquitlam and work in Downtown Vancouver

Re: Heavy Weight Games Groups
I haven't foreyed into 18xx style games, but I do play some Battletech when the other players show up, we often play Twilight Imperium, Mage Knight has racked up quite a few plays. Space Empires 4x has piqued our interest as well.

the 18xx style games have been something we 'might' look into, but the issue is finding time

Hi Raphael,

It's Evan, we met a couple times at Board Game Warriors! Maybe you remember me.

I would be interested in these types of games. I live fairly close to PoCo also.

What kind of schedule are you thinking about?

Evan

What days and times are you able?

I have Eclipse but never played it (since it is hard to fine someone to play with). I am totally interested.

Re: Heavy Weight Games Groups
Hi guys, looks like it's time to start thinking about where we will meet up on the 22nd.

I work in Burnaby and could make it down to Vancouver by around 5pm-ish. Or we could meet somewhere in Burnaby, I know of Magic Stronghold which has a lot of table space available.

It looks like we have 5 players...What would be an estimate of playing time?

Also, how many people have played the game before? It will be my first time. I have read the rulebook and I'm going to watch some videos.

I was thinking that we could all start as the Terrans to make the game a bit more noob friendly? What are others thoughts?

Evan

Re: Heavy Weight Games Groups
Any time after five works for me. I've played the ipad version a few times, but will likely need a little direction here and there.

As far as location, I'm okay with whatever the group decides. It was mentioned VPL as a possibility.
I'm okay with people coming to my apartment. I live in Yaletown about 5 min from the subway stop and there is visitor parking in my building.

I've never played, but have gone through the rules. I agree I think it would probably be best not to introduce aliens on our first play.
