It’s Galactic Council Week! This time, we’re dipping our toes into the pesky action cards, and there’s no way we can contain it all in one episode. So instead we’ve already decided this will be a two parter! But before we can even get to action cards, we have THREE Patreon Tournament Games to overview. Strap in, because this is a long one.

This week is our inaugural SPACE KITTY episode. As part of our highest Patreon tier, we allow contributors to produce an episode with us! This week, longtime contributor InMacKWeTrust joins us to talk about the evil maps he has inflicted upon us, as well as a discussion about why we make weird maps and why we diverted from the original map making process altogether. Before that discussion kicks off, there is a lengthy piece about Game Two of our patreon tournament, and after the episode is a quick errata about Game One of the tournament.

The tournament has begun, and this week is a quick recap of the first game. It was a fun game with a lot of surprises, which bodes well for the rest of the tournament. Afterwards, there is a lot of errata about last week’s Tier List!

The year is over and it’s time to RANK THINGS. We wanted to talk about how this year felt for all the different factions and give you a DEFINITIVE list of how they compare against one another. This is the most serious episode ever and our opinions are final. We are nerd masters and we have thought many eons longer than your tiny human peon brain has. FEAR US. No errata!

THIS IS IT. As I type these words, we officially involved ourselves in Twilight Imperium related activities for 15 hours. I'm going to bed. Please enjoy this post game(s) wrap-up discussion, recorded after our one serious game of TI and our one....less serious game.

SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY! Prepare yourself for the high octane action of probably something like 12 to 14 hours of TWILIGHT IMPERIUM! This week’s episode is a bit of a filler, but for those of you who have never tuned in to a streamed game we’re here to convince you to join us! We play some normal TI, but also some very strange TI, and this episode is all about breaking down those strange games. It’s a strange episode, but IT’S THE HOLIDAYS and we’re going to stream literally all day on Dec. 23...so bear with us...

The Galactic Council has voted again, and this time, despite all of our expectations, is an episode about fleet compositions! Today, we break down the role of each ship within a fleet and how different factions think about putting fleets together. Afterwards, there’s some errata in there about four player games. Make sure you don’t get any on your shoes, I hear the stench never goes away.

Matt played a four player game and was reminded how long it has been since he’s done Four Player. This is because Hunter despises Four Player games of Twilight Imperium. So, today is a regular old duel to the death over whether or not Four Player games are “good.” Afterwards, there is some important errata on the Tournament Prelim Round Map, including a couple of changes to the map itself.

Tournament preparations are underway, and first on our list was to make a properly balanced map for the Preliminary round. Eighteen games will be played on this map, so we wanted to make sure it had exactly the right feel. On today’s episode, we breakdown the map and discuss its yin and yangs between slices and go over which factions we think can flourish in which spots. Then we have some errata on last week’s Player Profile about Hunter!

It’s time for another Player Profile! There’s only one other host of the podcast, so that means this week’s profile is all about Hunter! We cover his much more strategic background, how he goes about handling relationships at the table, and how he manages his salt output. Also included is a breakdown of the structure of the upcoming Patreon tournament and some overview of a recent Good Yin Brotherhood game.
