Anyone interested in a game of Exodus Proxima Centauri this week?

I'll play only so I can say it is not as good as Eclipse and whinge the whole time :evil:

Does that sound like an appealing way to spend 2-3 hours?

If you don't get to play it today, I would be delighted to give it a try in a fortnight which should be the next time I'm at Dockers

sure what the heck (although how long will it take?)

Pretty much yes to all, except First Train To Nuremberg. I would quite like to know what Zimbabwe is all about.

Box says 30 minutes per player. Reviewers say 45min per player for first timers...

Thanks to those who played Great Zimbabwe last night.
Here are a couple of links to discussions of points and answers to questions that arose last night.
RE payments for hubs, yes they do go to the common pool unless you have the God Qamata, who collects all hub payments for the player.
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/900 ... b-question

RE Is the Herd specialist (or any other) too strong? Only if other players can't or don't put some brakes on.
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/906 ... too-strong
Interesting that a number of people who have played several games have not found it too be a consistent game-winner. It was particularly powerful coupled with Elegus, so it would be wise not to let the same player have both if possible.

Cheers

It's forgivable as I won by 0.25 of a point.
