You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

The popularity of the multi-player scenarios has caught me a little by surprise. There are a lot of two player scenarios with a wide variety of play times included in the game. However, if not playing with teams, the multi-player scenarios all tend to be at the upper end of the playtime (4 hours). Many have expressed a desire to squeeze a multi-player game into a shorter period of time.

For the last 2-3 weeks I have been working on scenarios that keep the flavor of the game (expansion and conquest), but provide players with shorter multi-player scenarios.

Uh, he did... but it can take some time. Oh yeah, bonus points for the long-winded explanation of why a science vessel would be named SW :-)

It was built by Russians, and so clearly it's a "Science Wessel".

Hey Jim! In your listing of tie-break conditions, you forgot to list: "If still tied, all players rejoice in their shared victory!"

I mean, you don't want to marginilize all the Euro players...

Okay, you got me to laugh out loud with that one.

Updated the thread with the BGG link and I put a reference to these in the game description.

Jim..

In the 2v2 4player scenerio... would you suggest still playing to 3 colony points? Or double it to 6, or somewhere in between?

You would have to double it, but if you are playing teams, I might suggest playing player elimination. Team multi-player games go much faster than everyone for themselves.
