first in space …

Twilight Struggle is back for another year. Deluxe edition will be used as the default. No optional cards (players should note that the revised Ames text in the Deluxe edition is not considered an optional card -- it is in effect). The US player will be awarded 3 influence after each side places initial influence. Added influence must be placed in a location that already has US influence. Over-control is permitted with the influence placement from the bid. Sides will be randomly determined in the first round. After that, players will alternate US/USSR (to the extent feasible).

The FAQ, Q&A, and a list of the changes from 1st to 2nd edition can all be found at, in the Twilight Struggle folder, and on the Boardgame Geek. A list of card changes from 1st to 2nd edition is in the same locations (and included in the FAQ). Players should check the same two locations for changes to the deluxe edition. Incomplete games will be adjudicated by the GM.

If necessary to accommodate even numbers in the next round, a player will get a bye. Past champion gets the first bye. After that, byes will be determined randomly.

The tournament is run as Swiss elimination. We will play the number of rounds necessary to produce two undefeated players, who will then play the Final.
