War in the Americas 9 (CANCELED)

Postby Nanook » 23 Aug 2018, 06:04

Update: game has been canceled. WitA will return at some point I’m sure, so don’t lose heart if you didn’t get to play!

Can it be? Is it possible? Three games of War in the Americas in the span of three months? :o

It can be, and better yet, it is!

This game will start the second week of October, around the 9th or 10th. Players in games 7 and 8 are welcome to double up, and in fact, some of you have already said you want to! Anybody not selected for games 7 or 8 will get preference, though, for obvious reasons. Signups are not first come first served, I will hand pick for reliability if there are 10+ signups by the time we're getting started.

The basics:

WitA is a 10 player game set in the Americas starting circa 1840. Adjudication will be 3 or 4 days for order turns with no adjudication on Mondays or Tuesdays, and around 24 hours for retreats and builds. Maps will be posted both on the forum and on Discord, and all comms will be handled through Discord. Rivers allow fleets to move to spaces adjacent to them. The Great Lakes spaces act the same as regular sea spaces. Full GM rules will be posted at a later date.

The colors are different than games 1-6, but consistent with games 7 and 8.

Country selection process TBD, in the meantime no talking to players about preferences beforehand.

There may be other things tried in this run, that's yet to be decided.

I love this variant, let's get a third game going!

Uhhhh...maybe interested? Not sure I’d play, but I’m intrigued.
You don't know what I'm thinking...because I don't know what I'm doing.

I did/do...but this is WitA! If it’s all the same variant, running 3 should be fine...as long as people label their orders ;)

Ok! Thanks for clarifying Nook! As I said, put me in subs only. I'm gonna focus on DoIaF and school.
