ps. I am impressed how many games you can manage at a time.
I think ten is probably too many, especially given that some of them are 24 hour turnarounds. I have missed a few turns. :-)

Re: False Allies

It's certainly an interesting discussion. I would say that you not only have to answer the question of whether it's historically realistic but also whether it makes for a fun and interesting game to play. There's a balance to be struck in these things. I'd say that, if an alliance has no specific me...

Re: False Allies

What players must realise is that the whole raison d'etre of the game is to win by achieving the highest legacy score.

PBEM Nostalgia

I've just started dabbling in the multiplayer and really enjoying it. I've not played many PBEM games, but I like the slow pace and being able to sit and ponder each move. Back in the late eighties, I played a Play by Mail game called Super Vorcon Wars (yes - I'm that old) and it kind of reminds me ...
