Game fee is £35.00

By Other Means is a space opera megagame of high-level diplomacy, negotiation and conflict loosely inspired by the Peace of Westphalia. Following decades of debilitating war, the major powers of the galaxy must find a workable peace, without losing too much of what each has gained.

Introduction

Like many recent additions to the megagaming community, I first encountered the hobby via a certain video by Shut Up and Sit Down. I was already a keen board game enthusiast and roleplayer, so megagames were a natural, if daunting step. I found the community welcoming and friendly and the games fascinating and engaging.

My first game, By the Grace of God, revisits the events immediately following the capture of Charles I at the end of the first English Civil War - a period of history which I find fascinating. It is mostly a game of politics and negotiation, although some military conflict is likely to break out! Time will tell if I'm foolish enough to attempt to design another game...
