Let's go for a new game.

Once again I come with some special game, sick off always 4 players games ^^.

So we will go for a 5 players game with a Star Map :



The special rules about this map are :

Location have 3 references (greek letter, latin letter, number).
Greek letters correspond to a 4 tiles part of the map.
Latin letter and number stay the same.

Alpha is adjacent to Beta and Epsilon.
Beta is adjacent to Alpha and Gamma.
etc.
So for exemple, a unit with 2 movement speed can move from Alpha H8 to Beta H8 and finaly to Gamma H8.

If a City is build at a H8 location, it will only contain 7 outskirt squares, and no other City can be build at a H8 location (because of overlapping outskirts).

All the starting tiles will be oriented in the same direction (randomly decided) -> All facing the adjacent left tile or facing the adjacent right tile.

I don't care about FaF or Base moderating ^^.
To make some move on the list maybe I will make a Base game as #74 & #75 are FaF games.

Re: #PBF Game 76 5 players Star Map
Ok this will be a Base game as all games still going are FaF games.

Here the rules I would like to be played but they are just suggestions ^^ :

1) Coin from MetalCasting to Railroad.

2) Random Civ.

3) Possibility to Obsolete wonders at Market.

4) Tie-break special rule :

Military don't overwin other kinds of victory. It goes like other kinds to tie-break (but we added +x points for each combat bonus and +x points where x= the level of each non obsoleted wonders). The point is that a player that haves lost his capital will not take part to the tie-break (even if he achieved a kind of victory and even a military one but this case never happen yet ^^ ; the player can still use his troops untill the end of the turn and destroy another player capital, but will not go for tie-break as he doesn't have his capital anymore). Of course, in a 2 players game Military always won over other kind of victory, except if the player that haves lost his capital destroys the opponent capital in the same turn but this case haves like 0.1% chance to happen ^^.


+1 point for each tech
+1 point for each step on the culture track
+1 point for each coin
+0.5 point for each combat bonus (3 barracks gives you +3)
+1 point for a non-obsoleted lvl 1 wonder.
+2 point for a non-obsoleted lvl 2 wonder.
+3 point for a non-obsoleted lvl 3 wonder.

Re: #PBF Game 76 5 players Star Map
Hello!

First of all thank You for invitation. If I get to play:

1) Agree, but I'd suggest to move a coin on Biology tech, it is the rarest reseached level III tech in our real games.

2) I'd like to try Germany. But if we all go with random civs, I'm fine with that.

3) Agree.

4) Agree.

Random colour.

Re: #PBF Game 76 5 players Star Map
Indeed Biology is rarely used. It's only taken if you need stacking limit and didn't take Printing press.
To be honest, the change of coin from Metalcasting to Railroad seems to become an official change. That's why every PBF game suggest it. About Biology, maybe it will be more used with W&W as wound will count in battle result.
Anyway I will follow the majority ^^.

Thanks for the invitation, but I'm not really comfortable with the map layout. Sorry. I'll wait for a standard base game.

Re: #PBF Game 76 5 players Star Map
To Morthai and Dave : This will be a Base game because a lot of players in the list want Base game and the Majority of games running are FaF. So to clean up the list I prefer moderating a Base game (even if I will never play base game anymore ^^).

But don't worry, next game I will mod will probably be a 3 players Windmill or 5 Players Star map with FaF.

Maybe I will open it sooner that I thought (like in 1 week or 10 days). But I would love seeing custom civ in play if we play a 5 players game with FaF, it brings so much more fun and variety. Morthai will be in because of the #73 Moderating. For other players I will follow the list but as Custom Civs will be in play and as the map can "annoye" some players (even if I wouldn't understand why ^^), I think we gonna pick players far in the list ^^.

Re: #PBF Game 76 5 players Star Map
Sure, I'm in.

The optional rules sound fine to me, but I will need a run down on the actual process of playing the game this way, since this will be my first game of this by forum.

Re: #PBF Game 76 5 players Star Map
Thank you for the offer of playing in this very interesting game. At the moment I do not have the time to devote to a new map style and I am waiting for a normal 2-4 player game to keep learning the game.

Re: #PBF Game 76 5 players Star Map
I'm in if it's the base game and you have space. I'm not familiar with FaF rules. Don't care about which civ or color I am.

Also, could you explain how H8 would have 7 tiles in the outskirts? I'm having a tough time visualizing how that would work.

For example : A city found at Alpha H8. Oustiskirt squares are : Alpha H7, Alpha G7, Alpha G8 (on the same tile) and Beta H8, Beta G8 (on the tile to the right), and Epsilon H8, Epsilon H7 (on the tile below). -> 7 Outskirt squares.

Re: #PBF Game 76 5 players Star Map
Ok the game will start soon as we have 5 players :

ybqye
Markinthepast
Fromage
Mythdracon
AndrewCT

It seems everyone is ok with the variants rules so we will play with it (random civ and color, Coin from Metalcasting to Railraod, possibility to obsolete wonders at market, tie-break special homemade variant rules).

For your information, you have to check at least the thread once per day, or you will get a yellow card. Getting 2 yellow cards and you will be replaced by another player.
Of course, if you announce that you will be off for 1 or 2 days because of "x" or "y", there is no problem and you will not get a yellow card.
I will do the same if I cannot be there for a particular period of time. But mainly I will be able to check the forum and make updates twice a day.

Tell me if it's ok for all you 5 ?

Then we will start the game.
