I would love to get Exodus: Proxima Centauri to the table this week. It's a new 4X game that's supposed to play in about 3 hours with 6 players. It appears to bear some superficial resemblance to Eclipse but based on my reading of the rules I think it promises to be more of a TI3 lite.

This will be everyone's first play so some patience will be required. I will limit the number of players to 3 or 4 in order to try and keep game length down to 3 hours or less. I will also ask that everyone try to read the rules in advance. I will have read the rules through at least twice and I'm going to try to set up and play through a few turns by myself tomorrow night but I'm not definite I'll have time for that.

I plan to arrive at as close to 6pm as possible to set up and would like to have everyone ready to play at 6:30pm in order to ensure that we can be done and have time to clean up before they kick us out at ~9:50pm.
If you are interested please let me know and I'll reserve a spot for you at the table.

Players so far;
1 Me
2 Langly
3 Adam
3 Mike
4 Dave

While I won't be attending (it's a bit too far, even for gaming) but I wanted to say that Exodus: Proxima Centauri is a great game and I'm sure it'll be enjoyed!

Have fun!

Sign me up - I was on the fence about this one during the Kickstarter so am very interested to see how it plays.

Awesome! We're at three so far which is a good number for a first play through I think but I'd be happy to have a fourth.
Looking forward to it.

Looks like we're full up for this week but don't fret I'm hopeful this will get to the table a few more times before the shine wears off. Might be better suited to an early start or the KBG game night with all 6 players though.

It's all yours Mike. My sister is coming to visit on Wednesday so I 'm out. If I'm lucky I'll, I'll get to play Mice & Mystics with her and her boys instead.

That's too bad Adam. You'll have to let us know what you think of Mice and Mystics.
Mike, looks like you're in.
I just set up the 4 player game and am running through a turn or two now to get the kinks out.
See you Wednesday.

Oh I'm sure Mike will have some bad jokes of his own to share, too.

If that is the case then someone should bring Commands and Colours: Napoleonics so we can get a rendition of Waterloo Sunset in.

That's a game I'd definitely looking to try. I guess you're all full for this week, so next time...

and once again, I'm a late withdrawal.

I'm sick and I'll spare you the sniffling and (more likely) the sniveling.
