In boardgames, race for the galaxy, strategy advice on January 20th, 2009 at 1:00 pm

Just to get everyone (including me) warmed up, I’m starting off with a few fundamental points.

A Question for my Readers

In boardgames, race for the galaxy, strategy advice on January 9th, 2009 at 8:46 pm

Almost every day, a couple people end up reading one of my earlier posts about Race for the Galaxy because they searched for some variation of “Race for the Galaxy strategy”

Since I’ve now played over 300 games of it, I think I could give their topic of choice a decent go, but first I thought I’d poll regular readers to see how much interest there is among you for such a creature.

I would probably do it in bite-sized pieces, possibly single strategic idea, or, at most, a simple strategic theme, in each post, so trying to be exhaustive might take a while, but I’m more likely to get it finished, or at least to get something useful out.

So

Are you interested in these potential articles?

What level of discussion are you looking for if you are interested? Fundamentals? Advanced topics? Coverage of different major strategies? Every possible bit of knowledge I can squeeze out of my brain?

If you aren’t interested, how much would it annoy if if I tackled this topic? Would it bother you less if I mixed in posts on other subjects?

Any other comments or ideas you have related to this are also welcome.
