I remember when Andy was making videos every week and I had this
gnawing urge to make a "how to play (Binary) Homeworlds" video.  I
never did do it, but it still has been gnawing at me.  I've seen
people asking for it and I never get the time.  I was going to have my
nephew (whom I have taught to play) help out.  It was going to be
great!  If only I could get a solid weekend to work on it.

Also, Sinister Homeworlds (where you are attack to your left and
defending from your right) is a fantastic variant.  Personally, I like
it better than ye olde "good and evil" game.
