The more I've thought back on the game, the more I like it. It did play pretty well even with 3 players, and I'd like to play it with 4 next time. I think we all learned a thing or two the first time around, like make sure your orbiters can actually store your production. I'd have loved to have totaled the value of what the three of us combined threw away due to under capacity of our storage ships.

Agreed.

The CSW Forum structure is so far superior for conversation to the wargamer.com old-style BBS format, that I cannot imagine anyone wanting to change it. Conversations - yes, threads - no. As for those that don't use the forum because of its interface, they are not interested in conversation, they are interested in data mining and do not know how to use the Search button.

The Tomahawk Gaming Club successfully completed a game of Planet Steam, which is purportedly based on the all time best computer game ever, M.U.L.E. Similar, but different, I guess. Anyway, despite the fact that Dan won quite handily, I think it's a pretty decent game. The rules seemed to bewilder Dan and Kevin, but I didn't have any problem with them since I didn't read them. The game seemed pretty intuitive and straightforward once we got to playing.

I'm assuming there must be some copyright issues or something since they didn't actually port the game over directly as a M.U.L.E boardgame, which I don't think would be hard to do.

Squeaky Frome released today, and the Lockerbie guy maybe going to be released in the next few weeks. What does ti take to really get life in prison? Apparently attempting to shoot the President, or blowing up a plane full of people isn't enough.

I would think if the members of CSW wanted a forum like Wargamer.com or Gamesquad or any other gaming-oriented, BBS-style forum, they would have already migrated to those forums.

Judging by this thread - http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/428435 - it appears that geekdo.com is to role-playing games what BGG is to boardgames.

Roger,
From what I can tell, http://www.boardgamegeek.com/ = http://boardgame.geekdo.com/
GeekDo is a larger grouping that includes RPGs at http://rpg.geekdo.com/

Good news on the Forum (hopefully) being back up soon and with minimal loss of postings. Could have used this time to work on my own gaming project IF my PC was not in nearly constant crash mode as well! (appears to be a hardware issue). Oh well, guess it was time for an upgrade anyway.

What's the difference between BoardGameGeek and Geek Do? The Thought Hammer links are now to Geek Do, which looks pretty much like BGG.
