My next game - now decided

Postby Pedros » 03 May 2011, 09:39

I'm gearing up to GM a new game - probably in about three weeks' time - and I want to rerun one that's been played here before, not a new one.

My shortlist is for either Imperium or War in the Americas, and I'm wanting to see what level of interest there is for each.

They aren't at all similar, and Imperium tends to be over fairly quickly whereas Americas almost certainly won't be! I'd be playing to original rules for each (not the modified map used in the last Americas, and not vaderi's suggested modification in Imperium (if you haven't seen the post, don't worry!!)

So - let me know.

Not for Forum games Willie.

Though it's well worth getting one anyway!! :)

War in the Americas, definitely! I was thinking of giving Imperium a shot but I think it's difficult for a game to last long enough to be interesting - most probably it will be over in a couple of years...
Sooner or later the man who wears two faces forgets which one is real... and thus a stabbing occurs!

I've never tried either, but I would be more interested in Imperial.

The start time would be specified later by the GM.

A forum game works just as any other game of diplomacy except:

you must write all of your own orders and private message (PM) them to the GM.
All communications by countries are also done by PM's.
