Man, I hate when you post that you are playing again! I'm fighting a serious case of gaming envy ;)
Of course, maybe I'm just bitter because it was 2 degrees F here this morning (not counting the wind chill) and your idea of cold in Florida means you have to wear socks with your sandals! :P
Cheers,

It is cold up here in NE Florida too. it only warmed up to 65 degrees up here... :P

What could help to jump-start Starmada is to make/use made ships from StarTrek with appropriate minis and invite people to play at a local game-store using ships & sheets you made. You may have to run the show for a while, but it could work. Also, ask the store to advertise a demo for you. You could use minis of Battlestar Galactica & maybe Babylon 5, etc., with ships from those shows also.
Cheers,
Steven

Opponents aren't the problem, but I could use a 32 hour day so I could find 3-4 hours for fun stuff! Haven't seen some of my gaming buddies in quite some time :(

Enjoy your game & blow something up for those of us that are 'splosion deprived!

Cheers,

I do not intend to go over the Atlantic to play, but I'm curious. Do you know how many games you are playing for games that clearly decide which won?
Last game I played lasted 4 turns. Not a lot but we played during a bit less than 3 hours (with some discussion and rule explanation inside)

I have played games that have lasted only 4 or 5 turns. The game we played here in Jacksonville last Saturday 2/9 lasted ten turns. There was much manuevering at long range. We play until one side is clearly beaten & they conceed.
:idea: We have made a change to innitiative. The first turn we roll for it it, then after that, it goes automaticly back & forth. Thus if I win innitiative turn one, I will also have it turn 3, 5, 7, etc. This change takes the luck out of winning or losing innitiative several turns in a row, and allows players to plan their moves accordingly.

It works well. We should try it when we play at (Gaming) Glen's store in Davie. 8-)
