As I said, one sometimes finds games by accident. Starweb jumped into my lap as a cat would. It was the first of July 2017 and the actual 'inventing process' took about 5 seconds. I wasn't looking for a game. I was looking at a Superstar board (old game, never mind) when suddenly the concept of 'triangular scoring' and the incentive it creates to join groups superimposed itself on it. I may be out of the game, but the games aren't quite out of me, apparently.

Starweb is very reminiscent of Havannah, my first game. It has similar building blocks and a similar relation between strategy and tactics. It makes me feel like having come full circle (and ending about where I started ... well, that's life).
