I was just worried about lack of players. We only have three, so we could use a few more. That, combined with the fact that the board itself seems to be dying.

Oh!! You guys need character names!!

They names would be blatantly reflective of your ethnic background of your province. For example, Edwin Forsyth or Pierre Lafontaine, etc.

CANADA

IMPORTANT PERSONS

President
Speaker / Chairman of the Supreme Soviet
Chairman of the Communist Party.

These positions can be mixed and matched.

Canada has a Supreme Soviet that officially runs the country. It has 3,696 members, with 12 elected from each of 308 ridings.

Canada also has a number of councils from which power flows.

THE FEDERAL PRESIDENCY
The presidency is made up of 6 members, 1 from each province, and each member is a provincial party. It is in fact the presidency that IS the "Communist Party of Canada". Membership in the Presidency guarantees that your provincial party is part of the CPC. You, as leaders of your provinces, are on the presidency.

THE CONTINUING COMMITTEE
The continuing committee (CC) of the Supreme Soviet is sometimes called the Politburo. It consists of 8 members, 2 from Quebec, 2 from Ontario, and 1 from each other province. The chair of the committee is also the chair of the Communist Party. Membership is fluid and you can change your representatives at will. You can take the seat yourself, or appoint someone else to do it for you if you are busy (say, at home, or at the presidency for a meeting, etc)

THE WAR COUNCIL
The war council is the CC and Presidency (14 members), plus representatives of the Army, Navy, Airforce, Gendarmerie, Marines, Coast Guard, and Secret Police. (7 members)

Note that the Gendarmerie, Coast Guard, and Secret Police, as well as the normal police, are all branches of the RCMP, the Republican Canadian Mounted Police.

So let me get this straight. I am:
 
  • A member of the Federal Presidency,
  • At will, a member of the Continuing Committee, and
  • Up to two out of the following three: Prime Minister of Ontario, Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of Ontario, and Chairman of the Ontario Communist Party.

Is that correct?

Correct.

Power in communist countries was much more "mushy" than power in democratic ones with clear delineations of power and titles. How well you play that is part of how well you will do in the game Wink

All right. Since I've already "claimed" Chairman of the Communist Party of Ontario in my display name, I'll take that and Prime Minister. And I'll be on the Continuing Committee whenever it is convenient for me.

Being on the CC is an assumption. The only time you'd not be on it is when you are busy, and then you'd have a personal proxy which you'd control. Your second CC member is also a proxy you control, so in effect, you control your entire federal "delegation" to the CC, Presidency, and Military Council.

None of the territories are. Saskatchewan and Manitoba are free.

BC is free too, but I have big plans for BC...

I don't think it ever was (I think Teddy said the territories, the Maritime Provinces, and Newfoundland and Labrador are not playable). I think the only playable provinces left are Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Chinese Columbia.

What is the difference between Prez and PM?
The President's office has a giant map of Quebec behind the desk, while the PM's office has a giant flag of Quebec. Also the President's limo is black, while the PM's limo is white. Lastly, the PM is expected to have a seat in the S Soviet, but does not have to, while the President is not expected to have a seat, but can.

There are no other discernible differences.
