I said I was going to wait until tomorrow to start this, but I got done early with the work I had to do so I decided to start this today.

A new 6P, 4 ring galaxy game will be starting. We will use mostly RAW rules with the following exceptions:

1.) Trade good based race selection. How this works can be found here: http://ti3pbf.com/wiki/Trade_Good_based_Race_Selection

2.) Home System Auction. How this works can be found here: http://ti3pbf.com/wiki/Home_System_Auction

3.) Speaker Auction. How this works can be found here: http://ti3pbf.com/wiki/Speaker_Bidding

The following will be the variants we will use:

Base Game:
The Long War
Leaders

Shattered Empire:
Race Specific Technologies(both SE and SOT)
Wormhole Nexus
Facilities
Tactical Retreats
Custodians of Mecatol Rex

Shards of The Throne:
Preliminary Objectives
Flagships
Mechanized Units
Political Intrigue


Variants to be voted on:
Distant Suns/Final Frontier
Artifacts
Shock Troops
Space Mines
Mercenaries
Race Objectives(something new that I took from BGGB that looks interesting)

We will use a variant that I have employed in my other games for Assembly. At the beginning of the game, all players will receive 2PCTG's. There will also be 1 Political Card drawn and placed on the table to start. When the player that has the Assembly SC activates the card, that player will receive 2PCTG. I the GM will then draw and place 2 more Political Cards on the table, so there are a total of 3 cards to choose from. The player controlling the Assembly SC will then choose a player to be Speaker and also a player(including him/herself) to choose an Agenda to be voted on, one to be discarded, and one to be held over until the next round. I believe this variant gives the widest range of possible Political cards to choose from.

We will use the following Strategy Cards:
Leadership
Diplomacy II
Assembly II(SOT)
Production
Trade II or III(based on mercenary vote)
Warfare II
Technology II
Bureaucracy


I promised Caesar he has secured himself a spot. The other 5 spots I will send out invites for. I will use the waiting list for these. I will send out waves of invites in groups of 25. Players invited will have 48hrs to respond before the next wave is sent out. After I get to the bottom of the part of the list of players not currently in a game it will be an open table(first come first served)

Thanks for the invite - I will decline. I'm mostly interested in house rules variants that move away from RAW games. I think your setup bidding rules are a good step, though. Good luck!

I am not sure if I fully understand the house rules. Everyone will be starting the game with a certain amount of trade goods, based on how they choose their race and starting position yes? And the map is going to be something random you make, or how does that work?

Will we know everyones race picks before we bid on starting locations? So if I get the Embers I can try to not be right next to the Virus for example?

Races will be revealed before the HS Auction, so yes you will know all of the races before you bid on your starting position.


As far as the Trade Goods go for the race bidding, I will show you an example:


Player 1 wants to draw 2 races and choose 1
Player 2 wants to draw 3 races and choose 1
Player 3 wants to draw 2 races and choose 1
Player 4 wants to draw 2 races and choose 1
Player 5 wants to draw 2 races and choose 1
Player 6 wants to draw 1 race and play as that race

Based on this example each player receives the following Bonus Trade Goods

Player 1: 3TG
Player 2: 2TG
Player 3: 3TG
Player 4: 3TG
Player 5: 3TG
Player 6: 4TG


Then you calculate the difference between the best and the worst method. In this case player 1,2,3,4,5 receive 2TG and player 6 receives 0TG.

Its odd how far down the wait list the games actually go now. I think the same person has been at the top of the wait list since I joined the forum....
