So! ....what are we going to do for SNF while Cyrano is gone on his recon mission?

Plans may have been made already; I'm just checking.  8)

In case there's a lack of other plans...

0.) Drink. (I assume this was going to happen anyway. ;) )

1.) SDR, I think, asked about Interplanetary a few weeks ago. This is a nifty turn-based WEGO combination of a (surprisingly nuanced) 4x game and artillery duel, set on randomly generated solar systems. (Well, 3x because there's no exploration per se.) Each player starts off with a basic city and a gun on a spherical planet orbiting their central star, and every turn each player plots what to build and where on the planet, plus whether to take a shot at someone else with increasingly powerful interplanetary weapons. Then when everyone has submitted their turns, the game advances simultaneously a few months (relative to a standard Earth orbit) of everyone's orbit around the star, some planets moving faster than others depending on their orbits, and any shots are calculated -- with changing gravity effects! Full price for the Enhanced (i.e. current) edition is only $15, and it isn't on sale, but it's well worth the price.

2.) I could host a COIN game on TTS, some of which I'm familiar with (like Fire in the Lake), others a little less so (like Falling Sky), and some I haven't played yet at all (like A Distant Plain).

3.) If we have three players, or me and three players, I've mentioned "Churchill" before: a political card game about the Big Three Allies negotiating how to win WW2 (and become the most influential super-power in the post-war era).

4.) ???
