The only time I play solo is to test a tech out, or otherwise experiment. For actual game play, though, it's only MP for me right now, simply because I'd rather be beaten in a competetive game against a human opponent than to beat the AI in a cakewalk. I'm confident that the AI will eventually be developed to where I'll want to play it, but for now, MP only.

I've been impressed with the PBW system. Thanks to all who make it happen.

I used to play head to head with Intimidator and he is very good. We would play via IM. Head to head games are very fun as you can get a 100 turns a day in easily. Intimidator was a very good opponent. He won every game we played, the evil cloaked mine laying bastard!

I'm impatient and have LOTS of free time, so I play solo. I played exactly ONE PBEM game of SE4. Fun, but much too slow for my tastes.

Speaking of multiplayer games a new Invasion! PBW has started called Invasion! Monster Free. Join before its to late it promises to be one of the best SE4 games ever.

Default Re: How do you play your SE game?

I only play solo. When I play, I like to spend a solid block of several hours or more to play intensely and play as many turns as I can, but lately the free time to do that comes along only infrequently, so sometimes months go by without playing! (I miss those good old days when I was a student.) If I leave a game for more than a day or two, I forget what I was doing or what my strategy or plan was, and so I lose interest in continuing, and so I start a new game.
