I've been on semi-vacation for almost a month now so that's why I haven't really been in the driver's seat here. Will you all be interested in restarting this?

Yes, but not if it's in the style of Atlasia.

Yeah, I should qualify my previous affirmative statement with Hashemite's comment. BK, I think you should work out the rules and then call for registrations - last time it got bogged down in a Constitutional Convention. No one's going to agree on everything when we get into the nitty-gritty of how the game's going to work, and the fine details of what's Constitutional and what isn't is probably more complex than we need to play the game. Take a leaf out of Joe Republic's book with his recent Primary election game - he stated the rules and then looked for players. Likewise Al's Town Hall game - he opened the floor for some general discussion and demographic development, but then he wrote the rules himself and then called for nominations. Antillia has already been fairly well fleshed out - maybe some more details on demographics, but if you're willing to write the rules, we can then register and I think that will work better than getting a list of people interested and then trying to design the game by committee.

Yes, I think I do.

Btw, it'd be nice if some more people could sign up to the Town Hall thing - the game is ready to go in pretty much all respects, but I don't have enough players yet, especially left-leaning players. The first set of instructions/options are ready to be sent out and everything. Smiley

How would you guys feel about running this game based on some variation of this?

Quickly read through the rules and looks like a pretty good game. I'm going to read through it a few more times and, if you don't mind, PM you some suggested adaptations?

Well, our country shall be called Bacon, and our head of state shall be King Justin of Bacon. My party shall be the Socialist Party, and it shall be Party A (82 seats).

Mr. Cohen's presence ought to help things out.

Well I have to nip this in the bud. No one's turning my Antillia into the State of Bacon.

To be honest though I can't believe there's still interest in this. Since I'm back now, and considering I'm the one who came up with the demographics, population data, nation concept, I'd be willing to act in a impartial GM capacity or something like that.

We've tried it like three times since you left and it didn't work out, so now we're doing something totally different, I think (link on the first page in one of Bacon King's posts). Since the game calls for a king, and Bacon King would be GM, the state would logically be called Bacon.

Part of the trouble with these games is that they seem to require a very active GM; Town Hall's ground to a halt (again) because the hell that is funding applications have eaten into my free time to a much greater extent than I'd expected.

If Bacon King doesn't mind, I'd be happy to adjudicate/GM a game of the Coalition Diplomacy. Reading through the rules, it's nowhere near as time consuming as the other Diplo game I'm adjudicating on here and I think I could handle it without too many problems. It wouldn't be a full mock parliament as originally proposed - no Constitution, no rules, no parliamentary debates - simply the Coalition Diplomacy rules as written by David Cohen and referenced by Bacon King, although some of those other things might be able to emerge later.

If there is general assent to that, say so (especially BK - I don't want to step on your toes, you proposed it after all). Meanwhile, Colin can continue to develop the Mock Parliament and Antillia game and we can perhaps progress to something like that down the track. If we start such a game, I'll open a new thread, so input/comment here would be appreciated.
