Re: Sliding to DEFCON 1: Twilight Struggle tournament thread

I'm out, I think. Thanks for organizing and playing! Rinelk, you think you are out? i don't get it. it was crystal clear at subscribing that this will be a longtime engagement. why did you join then? sorry, but thumbs down! Yeah, um, I thought it unwise to give my reason, which had some uncertainty...

<t>I interpreted the Mansions of Madness comment to refer to the helper app which is integrated into the second edition, so that the players can play fully cooperatively or solo (rather than the first edition, which required a player to run the bad guys). I don't take it to indicate that they have a...

Re: Biz: Strategy Games Have Highest Monthly Revenue in US Mobile Market

I love the idea of a site called "Strategy Pants". Sadly, "Pants Tactics" would probably mean something else.

Be well, man.

Re: Sliding to DEFCON 1: Twilight Struggle tournament thread

How does this game deserve its rating? So far, a complete luckfest and in addition to the very dumb luck from dice rolls, circumstances with certain card combos can sabotage the game so significantly one wonders why one is playing. So at this point, the beginning of turn 3, I either discard my best...
