Have you heard of 'irony'?


Or, you know, sarcasm.

I don't understand anything that has been said about this game in the OP or the added session report, and yet I'm starting to feel that I must get this game...

Meh, it can be tough to ID nuance in forum postings...

It's because of all the humiliation and pain that you want to play it again. It's a sick cycle.

A dream of mine as well, though I imagine it would end up pretty much like this.

Everyone else in the room has to resign themselves to playing the straight men.

I am a straight man already -- but seeing this might make me start to lean in other directions, if you catch my meaning.

Well, this game just arrived in the mail, and I'm starting to wonder what I got myself into. The instruction book and all game materials are about as incomprehensible as the OP. I've got some work to do...

It's ok! We all started out at where you are at! My first game of this gave me a migraine. Be patient, play the BEGINNERS GAME ONLY your first five times until you really, really understand what is going on, then you can slowly add things like sunspots, politics, combat, etc. It really is worth the work you will put in to learn it.

Depends what your idea of fun is in a game.

Some people love this game. I owned it and really really wanted to love it, but decided the mechanics were not consistent with my view of a great game. So I sold it.

Part of me still wishes I had this and enjoyed playing it though.

Andrew
