Mac: This guide is for anyone wondering what they should consider before creating their own alliance. This is for anyone, and not only for those that have poor social skills. These are not requirements, but guidelines you can go by, that can help prevent problems within your community down the line. Your team can benefit from the schedule / activity section, and the place of belonging section. It is good that you all get along, but this can help you go further if you have the desire to. These can only add to your alliance, and not take away from it. Yet, it is not a shame for you to ignore these if you and your team are comfortable where they are, but there are others who do, so don't simplify it as 4D chess. Both perspectives are fair. (I type this 30 minutes before our regular play night, and it has been a blast)
