Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)

Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.

× For those who like to push chits.

Imperial Struggle, follow-up to Twilight Struggle

I agree; I don't think that "point salad" is a slander here so much as an acknowledgement of the way eurogames have moved in the last 10 years and its influence on the design. That said, IS is so much work. That's where it falls flat with me.

Exactly, that is why I can forgive Imperial Struggles and some Euro point salad games like Great Western Trails but absolutely hate others point salad games like anything by Stephan Feld.

So I guess this thing sold out, GMT has it "out of stock" and put a 2nd Edition reprint up for P500 today. Also there's an errata pack coming for the missing dots and some card mistakes (automatic for P500 orders, or contact GMT).

The first edition had over 5000 pre-orders, so that seems like a lot of copies to shift.

I need to get back to this game, the Oath beta sort of stole its game time for me right after Sax and I had played a couple.

I'd definitely play again. Still really want to play some oath more, but it's more players so a harder thing to schedule. Hit me up if you want to schedule something, work has been absolutely crushing this last month.
