Inspired by Tcby and Game of the Month #1 ...

Since Tcby is a bit busy and I have a few days left before taking the family travelling for most of April I thought I might post the next Game of the Month in advance. Ensure you play Game of the Month #1 first!

NOTE: Haree's excellent Distant World Extended mod is required!


The Challenge Ahead

All I'm prepared to reveal is:

• I guarantee surprises both at the start of the game and later on there are areas of the galaxy even the Shakturi fear to tread. Let's just say I've spent some time in the Game Editor! I won't be able to respond while away so you'll need to figure it out.

• Victory conditions: Increased from default (so that there is a chance of seeing the Shakturi before Victory is already achieved)

• Galaxy size: Small (as requested by elanaahova) but still plenty of action

• Difficulty: Hard (lowered to encourage those that do not like playing on Very Hard or Extreme ... and don't worry I have cunning plans for you anyway)

• Homeworld: Excellent (to help you get off to a good start ... LOL)

• Pirates: Very Many, Strong (the last game was Classic Age ... the Shadows Age rules)

• Race: Quameno (after the last game we need a smarter race this time)

Spoiler Policy

In this case discussion regarding the start of the game will quickly involve SPOILERS.

Please do not post any revealing information here ... use the SPOILERS thread.

It's best if there is no peeking into the SPOILERS thread until you play the game yourself and then we can compare our experiences and discuss strategy.

Some friendly advice: Don't Panic!

Have fun!

Still pretty new to the game, but I'm going to give both this month and the last month a go. Don't have much hope for last month's as I'm not quite that pro yet.
