SafetyinNumbers Posted July 16, 2020 Share Posted July 16, 2020 I started playing this game for the first time in years because of the quarantine and it’s been a little addictive. If you have played it before then you might appreciate: One more turn! This time I asked some of my oldest friends if they would be interested in playing because it’s competitive and I needed something to replace sports. The game is actually conducive to playing over long periods of time. Like chess by email back when that was a thing. Also, because it’s turn based and slow, if you make 1 move a day it takes almost no time. Although the load time might be annoying. I have several games going now so it might be a move or two in each game per day. I’m setting expectations because one of my friends likes action and wants to do live trash talk as opposed to over WhatsApp every four days. All that being said, playing with people you know is addictive. Mostly because you feel better then them when you crush their dreams. Anyway, it’s a fun game because it’s politics and strategy and I thought there is likely some amazing competition on this board and I want to see if I’m any good. Plus we could do the trash talk here. That’s if political talk about imaginary politics is allowed on the new site. I’m not sure if anyone will respond to this so PM me if anyone wants to set up a game or three (it’s nice to have a few turns to make if you decide to load everything up). Also, even if no one wants to play with me. You should still give it a shot. What inspired me to buy the game a few years ago was Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History. I could hear him narrate the key turning points in a game. I know I’m a nerd. If you like ancient history and gold based economies it can be an immersive distraction from the real world and whatever is going to happen with our economy. Thanks for reading.
