Check out the REPLAY of a recent game... sneers, insults, ponderings, and all!
This game is another pseudo-Cold War piece about the Soviets and Americans duking it out in a vacumn. An unusual artifact is found in the nether regions of space-- a torus (donut) shaped asteroid with a miniature black hole in the middle. Not one of Metagaming's more popular efforts, still it can be a lot of fun and isn't designed to be a problem with a Play by Email turn sequence. I would have liked Metagaming to have dwelt a little longer on the novel situation of having spaceships so close to a black hole, but maybe somebody has written some house rules out there.

Black Hole Game Replay. This is a step by step visual replay of a BLACK HOLE game that Joe Hartley (our charming host here on Brainiac.com) and I played recently. The comments reflect the ebb tide of our fortunes during this game.
