Crazy thought:  Any Dragoons interested in playing some Stellaris together? 


I'm thinking a relatively casual (for Stellaris), easy-going game -- more PvE than PvP, so to speak.  I'm normally not a fan of playing online, but I'll admit the idea of stomping around the galaxy with a few of you fellows is an appealing one.

I'm usually available afternoons & evenings.  There are some days I'm scheduled to work, of course, but I'm back to being part-time again (in reality, not just on paper -- we finally have more help), so my availability is pretty decent right now. 


In addition, I should perhaps mention that Necroids is the only DLC I don't own.  I could therefore host the game, and that way everyone would have access to (nearly) all of Stellaris' content.  Of course, if someone else owns all the DLC and is willing to host, then they'd certainly be welcome to do so as well.

That might be fun to try. I have most DLC except Plant-, Lith-, and Necroids.

I have the base game but none of the expansions, though it does indeed sound fun to try.

Hey gents,


Did any of you want to try giving this a go, then?  No worries if not, of course. 

If we are, however, I just wanted to try and start organizing things:  See when folks are available, how long we can/want to play for per session, game setup options, etc.

I’m free most days and Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings.
1-2 hours is probably long enough per session… if we can indeed save between sessions.

Sounds good.  :bigthumb: 

I got an updated work schedule today, and they've now got me down for this coming Saturday, Sunday, & Monday (all afternoon/evening shifts).  Otherwise, however, I'm free this week and next.

I concur with no more than a couple hours per session; any longer than that would probably be impractical anyway.  And yes, we can absolutely save games in between sessions.  :)

Turns out this Saturday during the day I’m not available. My wife and her friends are taking us to a winery for an afternoon tasting/picnic… since we can do this kind of thing again.
But Sunday is free.

By the way, BanzaiCat and Metaldog?  Were you guys still interested?  I just want to make sure we're not excluding/forgetting anyone who'd like to join.

Whenever you feel up to it, man.  You'd certainly be welcome.  8)

Unfortunately, I'm unavailable this coming weekend (Saturday-Monday) due to work.  I'm free before and after that, however.

Awesome!  When are you available? 

No worries about DLC.  If I host the game, all my DLC will be available to the other players, and the only one I *don't* own is Necroids.  :)
