Welcome one and all to the second season of SMIF! We kick of our second go around the Sun with the definitive board game for board gamers. Twilight Imperium. The Flagship game from Fantasy Flight Games Twilight Imperium has seen Three editions printed. The game is a massive undertaking with it’s standard gameplay taking anywhere from seven to twelve hours to complete. We set aside a day earlier this year to attempt to play through Twilight Imperium Third Edition. After a Late start and a confusing tutorial we were off to the races. This is the full account of our exploits. Note: We discovered after the fact that we were playing the game wrong just a bit. Not enough to completely break the game but enought to possibly sway the few at the table that did not like the game.
