Continuing our discussion from last week, Matt and Hunter are joined by their good friend Alex to have a roundtable discussion on the impact of kingmaking. Also discussed is the promissory note Support for the Throne's role in kingmaking and its purpose in the game at large. It's a big topic with MANY varying opinions. So join us in this complicated issue by taking part in the discussion!

This week’s episode was left up to our Patreon’s Galactic Council! They voted, and so here we are with an episode on the etiquette of Twilight Imperium and some of the more difficult social interactions. After that, we’re catching up on errata. That means House Rules, Sardakk N’Orr, our interview with Dane Beltrami on the Living Rules Reference, AND the Barony of Letnev. It’s a long one folks, so make sure your car has plenty of gas!

On paper, the Barony of Letnev seem like an exceptional race, but according to player submitted statistics, they tend to do quite poorly. Today, Matt Martens and Hunter Donaldson dissect why and give an exhaustive look at what to do with the Barony’s big scary fleets.

We have an incredibly special treat for everyone this week. Matt Martens and Hunter Donaldson sat down with the developer of TI4, Dane Beltrami, to discuss his history with Fantasy Flight, the development of Twilight Imperium 4th Edition, and exploring the recently released Living Rules Reference. This episode is PACKED with information about previous iterations of your favorite races, what it was like tackling the mammoth that is TI, and the crazy questions that arise from this dense board game. Enjoy!

Today, Matt Martens and Hunter Donaldson are covering a very contentious race. People's opinions vary greatly on the quality and ease of the Sardakk N'orr, and so establishing a Round One plan can sometimes be very difficult. But Matt and Hunter are consummate professionals, and they see right through all your doubts and trepidations. FEAR NOT! The bugs can be conquered, it merely takes one stern of the heart, quick of the mind, and soft in the tummy. Join us afterwards for some lovely errata on the Naalu Collective.

Twilight Imperium is a huge game and leaves a lot of room for interpretation in its setup. Today, Matt Martens and Hunter Donaldson lay out their house rules for setup, especially going into detail on what they've often referred to as their "Cooperative Galaxy Setup." There's also details on map variants, tournament rules, and giving the game more flavor.

 

After, in lieu of errata, we wanted to give you the pitch for our newly launched Patreon. We're incredibly thankful for those that have already chosen to support us and look forward to moving forward with everyone's cooperation.

Let's talk about tech baby, let's talk about the fishies. The Universities of Jol-Nar are the master of tech, and that makes nailing down specific strategies with them rather difficult. Nevertheless, Matt Martens and Hunter Donaldson will certainly try to give you ideas on how to start a game with everyone's favorite cybernetically enhanced Chordata. And sticking with the topic of tech, the errata deals with last weeks discussion of the Nekro Virus.
