    Remember to read the rules and watch at least one previous game! There are a lot of little things you need to know when playing this map. For example capitals, fortify anywhere, 5v8 dice and 5v5 dice, abandon on,  taking somones capital doesn't mean you have 2 capitals, etc.

    Here is a good example game: http://www.wargear.net/games/player/69145

    I'll join a game with medium fog or higher. I can't create a game for now cause I'm playing 2 development games

    Heavy fog eh! That should be interesting .  Changes the game a bit with the limited attacks. let me know how it goes.

    I looked through some of the previous games, and couldn't find one that wasn't light fog.... amazing that players never seemed to deviate from that setting

    The map is more or less designed for light fog . Switching to heavy fog changes the gameplay a bit more than most other maps since  there are limited units and attacks. 

    That being said I wouldnt mind trying a couple heavy fog games.

    IMHO:

    So, it turns out the game loses something when you play in the deep fog.  The part of the game where you would be trying to guess where the other players units are, and how to best attack them gets lost - and it accentuates the importance of the dice. 

    Eden is definately better with medium fog or less.

    Quite interesting. I think luck played a large part in my game...but I won, so I enjoyed it?

    After watching your game, it looked like that final attack was a risk you had to take and it wasnt a long shot. The gameplay in that game was actually quite good. You should try your hand at it a couple more times.

    Sorry for the delay. 

    I know that on the list of suggested boards I added Helix, but that one got some play recently because of the Helix 2016 tournament (thanks to MB for starting and congrats to Amidon for winning), and because I was in it, I got my Helix fix (although it should end up getting resurrected for non-tourney gameplay eventually).

    Anyway, there have been a number of forum posts recently about luck and dice, so I figured I'd resurrect a strategy board that got LOTS of play when it came out, but has since dwindled.  For the first BRG of 2017, I nominate Ten - Propagate.

    1) It's one of the best duel boards on the site, IMHO.
    2) It's a zero sided dice game, so it's 100% strategy (only luck is initial positioning)
    3) It (with 5 and 7) came out before all the other cool board designer tricks were implemented, so the mechanics of the game are pretty ingenious.
    4) It's only had maybe 10 games played since 2012.

    Maybe, since it's a duel board, set up a small tournament?
