Game settings depend on the number of players, but after having played many simultaneous games, I'm thinking a conventional round-robin game. Largish galaxy, no AI if it can be helped.

I mayhaps be interested. Though I own naught a copy of the game.

I dunno dude. I'd hate to think of causing your schedule to get even more packed than it already is.

Which is my prime concern, which is why I will likely be ducking out until next time around when I have free time and freer munnies.

Hrm. If I could track down a copy of the game, I could probably use the diversion...

Since my current game seems to have died down (and I was enjoying it so, too!), I'd be up for it. My schedule is

Erm. My schedule is quieter, so a round-robin game will work well for me.

Besides, it'll be nice for you guys to have someone to beat up on, right? :P

It sounds interesting, but I have never even seen a game of any Space Empires (to my knowledge), and I'd like to know what time commitment would be involved first.

I recommend visiting the SE5 homepage, at Malfador Machinations, and downloading the demo. SE5 is a fairly standard 4X game, and typically a turn in a multiplayer game will take anywhere from a few seconds (early in the game), to as much as 20 minutes (furious action, usually while prosecuting or planning a major campaign). In terms of time commitment, it would be similar to a game of Alpha Centauri, which I believe you are intimately familiar with.

And how often would one need to take a turn?

Usually once every few days the turn would get back around to you. Its generally considered polite to move it on within 24 hours.
