I would strongly recommend that if you haven't played the mod, that you try a single player game to get the hang of the mod 1st. At least a couple hours of a single player game before starting this one.

I played the GOTM (year?) as my first game on this mod and had to restart after a couple hours, so I must call on my honor to disqualify myself. I still might have pulled off a victory, but was blindsided by a few things and how they worked.

Next months game... you guys are gonna pay!

What?? You're pulling out? C'mon man, wtf's the point for the rest of us? Just because you think you've messed up and don't want to spoil your reputation. Bah, my NC respectometer has just dropped a whole load. What a wuss!

Considering installing this if I get some time. Might take me a year to play though!

Negative, NC. You are not disqualified.

No where in the rules does it state that only one attempt may be made. Nor is there a prize for a winner.

Give it another go.

Hurrah, LC, I quite agree.

However, I would also support what NC has recommended regarding playing a single-player game first. I considered myself familiar with this mod but there are zillions of changes - not only from BtS but even from my last .8c version! At least I haven't given up in disgust though.

The story so far:

Spoiler Text Below - Highlight to See Hidden Text
Huge continent with few close neighbours. Decide early to go down the Great Wall/spy route due to proximity of stone. Exploration reveals severe lack of nearby resources. Time seems to drag so this must be set at Epic or something - I only play at normal or quick speed usually. Have formed a nice little empire of about 5 cities in the SE corner when, for some unknown reason, Germany bribes America to declare war on me. How did America expand so close? Anyway , it would be great to capture the nearest American city as they have copper! But my army is inadequate. The only thing I have going for me is a superb spy/information network, and the 'Murcans don't seem all that keen on launching an assault. With bugger-all resources, this is a difficult scenario, but I'm making use of the British financial trait to keep ahead of the tech game. The war will be interesting.

Why, Yes, yes, of course.

It is not a problem to change the rules as we go along, because, well, they're aren't really any rules to begin with!

I have started this and played through around 250 turns. Certainly an intersting one and no idea how I am going to win.
