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.

Paris, 1804. You are an officer in Napoleon's Grande Armée, and the opportunities for advancement are endless. Socialise, intrigue, duel, gamble...and lead your troops to glorious victory. Europe unites against the new Emperor, but as his star rises, so will yours.

Introduction

My first Megagame was in 1995 when I was 16. I went to War without an Enemy and I loved it. I then played dozens of games over the next 25 years, everything from invasion of Britain to WW2, to space and fantasy games. My favourite highlight is still dooming mankind by summoning an Elder God in Right Angles to Reality. Personally shooting Hitler is a close second. Megagames is not my only gaming outlet, playing wargames, boardgames and being part of Real Time Wargames (rule development group who demos at wargames shows in the SE) with fellow Megagamers Bernie and Brian. I always felt a bit guilty that I did not take this knowledge and experience of Megagames and other games and make my own for others to play. I am therefore very glad I recently did with Bernie's generous help and I hope to carry on involvement in the group for years to come.
