Having had a look on the website it sounds a bit odd but interestingly done. Ive looked at the space version of memoir 44 but the ships were awful. Armada is brilliant but quite deep and you always end up buying tonnes of extra ships, making an £80 boxed game a £400 game very quickly. Im finding myself sorry I sold my X-Wing stuff now.
There's no reason to use the 'Official' ships if you find rules that you like.

There's more than one medical professional on here?
That might depend on how you define "professional".
Just because Norm finds ways to make his job fun doesn't mean that he isn't professional.

Figuring the average life is about 30000 days, you'd need to be shagging aboout 300,000 per day, with a 100% hit rate to have a billion sons.

But if you have a history of twins in the family it becomes much more achievable.

It becomes half as impossible. Be a challenge for an Ottoman Emperor.

A day is 86,400 seconds, so you would have to inseminate almost 4 women every second.

You also haven't allowed for the natural reduction in sperm count resulting from "frequent" ejaculation.

I am only considering material issues. I think we have established that a billion sons would need an increased male lifespan and sperm count.
