Well, I'm in for any Pax game I can make the time for.

We can add it to the weekend Transatlantic rotation, it's got a similar playtime to Oath.

I'm also usually available weeknights for West Coast folks or East Coast folks who don't mind staying up a little late.

Yep, I'm also up for a Pax Pamir at some point. Only played once and quite a while back (you'll be pleased to hear that I didn't win on that occasion).

It was a great game and my first playing with opponents I hadn't taught myself.

The initial market was pretty mixed on patriots, but had a huge number of unaligned rulers. I tried to set myself up in Persia and Transcaspia, hopefully with Russian support, and then build a decent tax engine. However, the quick reveal of the first dominance card threw that a bit out the window and I wasn't able to keep up in the race for discs. However, I managed to build up a pretty decent spy network working out of the east and west, with a ruler in Punjab. I was able to buy the second dominance card before Not Sure could clench an early victory. What we didn't know is that unrest and upheaval of my ruler in Punjab would allow him to crawl back with a fierce economic engine taxing the market and Gary while building up a strong Afghan coalition. I jumped shipped from the Russians at some point, but was not able to make inroads with the Afghans due to a pretty insignificant tax base. My hopes were further dashed when a coup in Persia crushed my last vestiges of board control. I jumped to British but was not able to build enough with them to keep up with the growing Afghan empire built on Not Sure's economic might. On a couple of turns I was one rupee or action away from being able to trigger a contested Dominance check, but Not Sure triggered the third sealing a total victory. It was tense the whole time and a real testament to the quality of the design. There isn't really time for any turtle-ing or any lull in the conflict, although you can occasionally feel out of options.

I think Gary said he was traveling next week, but if people want to play on Tuesday(s), I would be more than willing to host and/or teach.

I'm interested in trying as well. I've taught and played one game in person, but I've never played anything on TTS before.

Honestly, TTS is a little awkard for the first hour or so, but after a bit you get pretty used to it. Pamir has a good module that isn't overly cluttered, which also helps.

Yes please!

If you ever need another player on a weeknight (PDT), I’m interested. Same username on Steam.

For me normally, yes! I'll be on a plane this week though, my dad broke his leg and I'll be helping around the house till Sunday.

If anyone above is interested, you can definitely get enough others to make it happen anyway.
