C’mon, you know you want to… If you have played Takamo before, mention your previous race and interesting things about it. If you have never played Takamo, how did you find out about it? Plus add anything else you want

Hello! Frank Gingrich here. I recently joined Takamo (I'm on turn 4), after a looooong hiatus from the game. I played back in the mid-80's and early 90's, so while I am re-learning the game, a lot of it is coming back to me as I work on each turn. (Though I am making plenty of mistakes each turn!) I'm playing an ICB.

I'm a friend of Raven Zachary and Travis Saulat, who both also recently joined this game. (Raven is to blame for rekindling my interest in playing Takamo!) I'm hoping to meet and make more friends playing here as well! I loved this game back when I played it in the 80's, even though I was in the US Navy and probably missed more turns than I managed to get in on time due to overseas deployments (I remember sending in orders for multiple turns at a time, because mail was slow when deployed!)

I play other PBEM games, mainly MEPBM (Middle Earth) and Atlantis New Origins and dabbling with Hyborian War. I've designed and run a few PBM and PBEM games over the years, some with up to 20 players in them, but only as a hobby, and nowhere near on the scale as Takamo!

I'm on Discord, Akhorahil#2371, if anyone wants to say hello, but be warned, once we meet, I might come asking for advice and help! Just ask Raven, I am always pestering him! :)

See you in the game!

Frank, you can always post questions here or send emails (

Who did you play in the 80's and what universe?

I *think* I played the Mri Confederation, or something like that. I don't know what universe. I'm searching my garage hoping to find my old Takamo binder...
