Man, you wipe out just one sentient species and suddenly the whole galaxy turns on you. Jerks.

I'm enjoying this - my friends and I played a PBEM Twilight Imperium some years ago, and this brings back all kinds of good memories. ( I was The Barony of Letnev, which I'd envisioned as Goths! In! Spaaaaace! )

Thanks for posting.

I love this series. It reminds me of a series of articles on PCGamer about several games of Civilization 5. Any plans to continue this with games other than Twilight Imperium once you finish that one?

We'll definitely look into it! There's many optional rules in Imperium we haven't played around with either, so we may start up a new game afterwards with a different set as well.

I really loved this article, and the flavorful way it was presented! I adore Twilight Imperium, and enjoy seeing it get some love. Moar! The Naalu Collective shall rise!

Ah, I see the classic tactic of "I have too many ships to actually fit on the board properly" is in full effect. Always remember Maxim 37 - "There is no overkill".
