Kingmaker: Wars of the Roses - SIGN-UPS

Postby rick.leeds » 29 Jul 2014, 13:55

I am now taking sign-ups for the game.

The Rules sub-forum is partially completed. I need to finish listing all the "cards" involved, as well as other rules-related stuff. I will also need to put some other stuff up before the game starts, but if you want you can read the rules here and, if you're interested, please feel free to sign-up.

A word of warning: although I have condensed turn deadlines as much as possible, each player's turn will take a minimum of three days. Seems a long time - with a full complement of 8 players that's over three weeks for a Round. It isn't going to be a short game, sorry. And players will need to look at the game when it isn't their turn or, at least, make sure that they are checking PMs for notices.

I will play the game with 6 - 8 players for the first game. If we have more than that, I will look at running two games.

It's been years since I played this game, but I would be very interested in playing, if a spot is available for a Yank.

Used to play in college - If you're still taking sign-ups I'd like to play.

A wonderful game. I also have a physical copy.

There is a free DOS emulator version out there too - http://www.old-games.com/download/5355/kingmaker is where I got mine. The AI is amazing for the era, a few rules are tweaked for playability on the screen, the only sad thing is the parliamentary win is disabled, and AI will never call parliament. There is no "Diplomacy" aspect either.

"I'll let you have free passage through my towns for two turns, if you let my ship out of your port."
"You can use my bishop to crown yourself King, but I get your 1st choice on title and offices when you call parliament."
My groups always made such contracts absolutely binding - I wonder if that would be the case here.

Sign me up as player, alternate, GM assist, whatever you need!
