I'm a software engineer based in Glasgow, Scotland. Mostly writing software in C# and a little Java.


I'm interested in a variety of topics from best practice and coding standards and UI to nitty gritty programming details.

comment Players who can't seem to follow the rules — What can be done?
I don't know about the second one, but I've always found giving players cards that give you a breakdown of turn order useful. That or a cheat sheet, that can be referred to. Although to be honest if a minority of players are playing the game wrong and still having fun who cares. Barely anyone plays Monopoly right and it's one of the best known games in the world.

comment Are there any playable Twilight Imperium 2 player variants?
IT's worth trying, I don't think I'll get a chance to try it for a wee while though as I'm about to go travelling, and TI is not a travel friendly game.

comment Is there a single player PC game with similar mechanics to Twilight Imperium?
Spaceward Ho! is kind of similar but not as in depth. It's also got a fog of war aspect to it that Twilight imperium doesn't.

comment Model Decks for Game of Thrones The Card Game?
The second one sounds good. I'll wait to see if anyone else comes up with anything else and if not I'll mark you as the correct answer.

@AlexP Provide you with the largest army? I guess there would be no incentive to keep them in your hand though.

Also the name doesn't evoke the Scrabble trademark, which was an issue for Scrabulous

comment Design for board to put on table to make it bigger?
I think I've found the right kind of hinge. Counter top hinges ironmongerydirect.co.uk/Products/Hinges/Special_Purpose_Hinges/… Not sure if it's worth answering my own question as it's just an idea. If I have any more issues I'll have a look at diy.stackexchange.com

comment When you reset the counter for successes against an Elder God do you stop counting successes for that dice roll?
Yeah we just used money tokens to keep track and reset it when we knocked off a doom token.
