Mark Teaches Twilight Struggle

I wanted to thank Mark today for showing me the ropes on Twilight Struggle. Fantastic Game! We were able to get in two games. The first one really did not count as I just learned the mechanics and was defeated rather quickly. I still lost the second game (as the Soviets), but I think that I was able to offer Mark a little better challenge. I will be happy to play this one again anytime.

Did you use any of the variantS?

BTW, the Vassal module works REALLY well....

ROb, I don't think that we used the varients. As this was my first game, we kept it simple. Mark mentioned that it works well on Vassal. In fact I think he said that you two have played there.

I really like the "Chess Like Feel" of the game. You know, the move and counter moves. The bluffs and threats.

I played somewhat blind - that is not really understanding the long term implications of cards. I also want to try 1960: Making of the US President.

Hope to see you around, Rob.

I'm glad you liked the game, Carlos. I had a great time Saturday. TS is an awesome game. It takes a few games to really learn the implications of the cards and develop long term strategies.

We did not use any of the variant rules. I've got vassal downloaded and ready to go whenever someone wants to give it a shot.
