GC Hello
« on: August 02, 2006, 12:53:45 PM »


I hope there are other GC enthusiasts out there.  The game has faded away so that we are lucky to start one as the previous game ends but it deserves better.

It is easy to learn the rules but there is a fair amount of strategy as well as a critical diplomacy component.  If you have never tried it, give it a try -- I'll be glad to answer any qeustions you care to ask.

You convinced me, I just signed up for a GC game.  Hopefully you can share some pointers.

Be glad to give you my two cents worth on the game -- drop me a line at TigerIIth@TigerIIth.com when your game starts (probably GC 101) and I'll be glad to give you my philosophy/suggestions.

Greetings,  I've decided to try GC and see what happens.
Three questions:

1) What is the format for submitting turns by e'mail?
2) Any suggestions for strategy?
3) How can we communicate or negotiate?  I saw nothing in the rules about that. Huh

Never heard of this game, but am somewhat interested.  How different is it from Mobius or StarWeb, or even BattlePlan?

Sorry a bit late with the answers.  I hope you still are on the board.

1) For email submission I find it easiest to use a text editor to prepare afile then just copy it into an email.  The format is the first line contains game identifying information and the second account information.  An example:

Game GC ___103________  Turn # _14_____  Code Name  TigerIIth
John Meyers       Account Number XXXX    Date Due __03/06/11

Then I enter my orders (one per line though think multiples may work)   followed by a line with total orders

Total Number of Orders      37

2) At first concentrate on expansion.  When you run into neighbors try and make at leat a Non-Argression Pac (or full allliance) with them.   Throw out some long range attacks as soon as you can spare the forces so you can do your heavy fighting away from your home area.

3) Negotiations is encouraged and best done on the net.  After you have played afew games you'll recognize player names and have instant communications.  Other wise you can include anote  with your turn and FBI will deliver it to the recipient.  It should start out with TO:   and FROM:   An example is below:


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

TO  :      Arcturus
FROM:      Tiger IIth

We appear to be close and an early war  would be disasterous for both of us. 
Could we establish a border such as
55-49 and north are yours.
61-59 and south mine.



You can reach me as GC@igerIIth.com.

Good gaming.

John

It is quite different -- very simple compared to the others.

It still has elements of economics and military attack but not much else.  A good filler game.
