Re: Sliding to DEFCON 1: Twilight Struggle tournament thread

Commies send invites? Is it worth noting (now that we are underway, naturally, and when it no longer makes a difference) that apparently +2 starting influence for the US is apparently considered "balanced"? So, because I'm a big gaming nerd with too much time on my hands right now and into TS, I re...

<t>It's possible you are seeing more bugs on Android than I'm seeing on iOS, and I can see how that would knock off a star for you. The AI is weak, hopefully they will update that. I think the campaign is actually pretty fun, as it provides a series of chess-puzzles and gradually introduces new piec...

Really? PT gives 5 stars to "a good snowman is hard to build" and 2 stars to regicide?

Re: Pravda vs Voice of America: Twilight Struggle tournament chat and insidious propaganda thread

Indeed, I think I also noted another illegal realignment later and also another wrong ops value for Indo-Pakistan war. Maybe this doc is out of date? Does anyone have a pointer to the current definitive rules? Yeah, I think their annotated game is just a mess. That same doc clearly says no realignm...

Re: Pravda vs Voice of America: Twilight Struggle tournament chat and insidious propaganda thread

I was just reading the annotated game in the official rules: http://www.gmtgames.com/living_rules/TSRules2nd.pdf The US tried realignment in France in T2 AR6 when DEFCON was at 2. How is that legit? I thought Europe was immune to coup and realignment below DEFCON 5? Is that a bug or was there some c...

Re: Sliding to DEFCON 1: Twilight Struggle tournament thread

I think sleepinggiant may be AWOL.....
Not AWOL, just offline for a couple days. I believe since I won our first game that concluded game 12 of the first round of the tourney, and now we are just playing a second game for fun and practice...

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...

Re: Sliding to DEFCON 1: Twilight Struggle tournament thread

SleepingGiant defeated Empt/KingWilson on points in turn 7. Honorable game, my most memorable event was Brush War to flip Thailand from 4/6 to 10/0 although I don't know if that was really the turning point or not. We are now starting a new non-tourney game as opposite sides, I'm glad to have met a ...
