Race for the Galaxy League


#101

I’d vote for three-player tables.

I won’t argue which version is more “pure,” but the three-player game does play totally differently. In many ways, I prefer it.

I’d add only that we’d need a commitment for everyone to make at least two moves per day. Games drag so badly when one player checks out for awhile.


#102

we have that Three-Way-Galactic-Master Challenge thread running, and it seems like not many contenders want to play.
in fact no challengers in the waiting line at all.

so how could we play a three-player tourney?


#103

It could be the ladder format itself that people aren’t interested in. I find them pretty dull myself – too much waiting around.


#104

good argument. might be the reason.


#105

Zebra 47 > @KYakerDude 42

Gg! …But this was rather strange since Kyaker finished his board and I was short three slots at the end. The difference was Uplift and Rebels ftw, I guess.

I’ve established my mediocrity well, haven’t I? I’m now 5-5.


#106

I second (or third) the motion. I think the game plays well three player and it’s worth a shot, no?


#107

I also vote for 3 player tournament


#108

I have an idea that I think would work and would cut down on the usual downtime with larger games.

I’m jammed up with work right now, but I can post a sign-up thread on Tuesday morning.

Zebra 27> @hardco 25
Kinda make a you think neither of us really wanted the win. As close as it appears. Both of us got the 6 variable dev bonus at the same time! Gg!


#110

I’ll admit, I was saddened to hear that the league was decided before finishing my games, but in this case I had a great plan of dropping the development to let me play my 3 military Alien world as non-military and snagging the 4 different worlds bonus on the last round. Unfortunately, I missed the “doesn’t work on Alien worlds” part, and ended up just twiddling my thumbs instead. I’m pretty sure almost any combination of actions would have been better than what I did on the last turn. Close game though!


#111

Still do not have friend codes for @milkolate and @js619. Maybe you guys should invite me? Those are my last two league games (still playing @geigerm and @Jules).

My code is YKMPWCJJ


#112

Zebra 52 > @geigerm 30

Not exactly sure why I kept on pulling away, but 18 vps from Military certainly helped. Also 9 with Galactic Federation. Gg, Mike.


#113

Epic match with @Jules to finish my league games. I was rather fortunate as I had not realised that the VP pool was going to run out. I did have a high-scoring development waiting to be deployed and it would have gutting to have lost with that still on the bench.

@Jules worked his plan well … hitting the goals and VPs hard … and was as close to winning as is possible …


#114

@js619 didn’t we play the Challonge match for the league already? I created a game in case we did not.


#115

Thought so, but I have no idea what the score was lol…


#116

:see_no_evil: :bow:
:smirk:


#117

Zebra 40 > @Jules 38

Aliens come through for 8 (5+3 bonus) on the final turn! Gg!

A winning record! wOOt!


#118

Neither do I. Any suggestions? Report a tie at 300 points Each? That would raise some eyebrows…

Feel free to accept or reject the game I created. We can always report a tie.


#119

Accepted, we can always let this one stand for reporting purposes…


#120

Finally! We both thought we had played played before but neither of us could remember who won. So, we played again.

Zebra 40 > @js619 32

Gg!
