Colonial Twilight playbook, final version.

ColTwilightCover(edit)RBM

 

Okay, about the last, last thing to do for Colonial Twilight, is to post the Playbook for the design.

24 pages of tutorial, mucho documentation and examples on the ‘bot, Designer’s Notes galore, text and background for every Event Card, selected bibliography (including a list of fiction and films you might like for atmosphere), and a pronunciation guide for place names (thanks to big guy and polymath Barry Setser for that!).

Okay. That’s really about all there is. I think I have now written more words about the game, than there are in the game. Every major component has been revealed, or described in great detail.

It remains now only for you to get your copy, and play it. Enjoy.

One of the very first copies of Colonial Twilight! GMT sent me an advance copy, just in time for Consimworld Expo. The rest of you will have to wait a few more weeks, please be patient…

Not going to do an unboxing video, but I am very very pleased with the quality of the components. And nothing has been changed on me without my knowledge or consent.

VERY happy! Can’t you see?

Back to USAWC

  • May 16, 2017, 4:30 pm – Strategic Art Film: The Battle of Algiers, moderated by Brian Train.  US Army War College, Root Hall, Wil Washcoe Auditorium. For more information, call Army Heritage and Education Center at 717-245-3828.

In about two weeks I will be returning to the US Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania for a repeat performance of last year’s event: I will be moderating a screening of the Pontecorvo film The Battle of Algiers and then we will have some guided play of Colonial Twilight.

The difference is this time Colonial Twilight will be in its final, approved form! Apparently it is still on track to appear in June 2017, just a bit too late for the Consimworld Expo in Tempe, Arizona (at the end of May, this year) but about three years since GMT first approached me about doing the game.

After this I am going to Ottawa for a couple of days, where I will be at the Cangames convention on the weekend. It’s their 40th annual convention! Maybe I’ll see some of you there. I’ll be running a couple of games of Colonial Twilight there as well, and maybe some other goodies.
