I don’t have a physical copy of Triplanetary, because they weren’t shipping outside the USA., and buying from Warehouse 23 to the UK is ridiculously expensive (a $50 game would cost me, after customs and fees, well over $100. (That’s a separate rant for another place.) But it’s still an interesting game, the rules can be had without charge from the official site, and it’s not too hard to find out what the map looks like (hint: it’s on the kickstarter page). I’ve written software to take a list of ships and vectors, and plot images.
So does anyone fancy playing by forum? I’ve run one game by email so far, so it probably shouldn’t be anything too complex, but I can support genuinely hidden units (with a separate map for each player if necessary). I’m happy to referee (if there are hidden units) or play. Ultimately I’d like to work up to the campaign game.
(I have a complex RPG session to run on Saturday, so I won’t start actually setting things up until that’s done.)
