Evening!

I've started this thread as one of several measures I'm considering to address either an excess or a lack of games (both of which happen from time to time).

The purpose of this thread is multiple, including proposals for games you'd like to see on the board, ideas for games you plan to host (so people are aware of what games may come in the future), reserving a concept or a scenario to avoid having too many games on the same subject, and so on.

If well used, I'd imagine this could allow us to coordinate games more efficiently, as well as measure public interest on the ideas people may have.

Alright,
First of all, a game based on 1914 will start either in April or May.

To make games work, the best way to guarantee that is I believe to write scenarios making sure this isn't one clan against an another but more many forces, candidates seeking various goals.

As for myself I'm fully occupied with Forward (2012 Election Game) and The Death of Kings (ASOIAF-based game), but I would like to reserve a concept for an historical game to host at some point, although I have no idea when.


Provisional Title: "Dynasties and Empires"

Context: A game set in 1519, right at the onset of the Protestant Reformation, the Spanish Conquest of the Americas, the supremacy of the Ottoman Empire, the conflict between the young monarchs Henry VIII of England, Charles I of Spain and Francis I of France, and an election for Holy Roman Emperor which might decide the future of the Empire.

Among the playable characters one would find famous monarchs such as Henry VIII, Charles V, Francis I, Manuel I (Portugal) and Selim I, as well as other relevant characters such as the beleaugered Pope Leo X, James V of Scotland, the infortunate Louis II of Hungary and Bohemia, the Republic of Venice, the conflicting King of Denmark and the Swedish Regent and so on.

And, given the richness of the moment, the wide cast would also allow interaction with characters such as Cardinal Wolsey, Martin Luther, Moctezuma and the conquistadors, Richard de la Pole (last of the Yorkist claimants), Catherine of Aragon, the explorer Magellan, and so on. The game would most likely feature turns of one year, so we can advance into a much different world.

I was bored the other day, so I also took the time to make a map for future use (with the undiscovered areas hidden, as players will have to be both skilled and lucky to discover much of the New World):

I guess I could either reserve or Propose this idea:

Image Link

Provisional Title: "After the New Blue Dog: A 2016 Election Game"

Summary: Based off my surprisingly smash hit of a Timeline "A New Blue Dog for America's Health" (Here: https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=281052.0), it is the year 2015 and the impressive Presidency of Phil Bredesen has gone by Eventfully and now he is no Longer eligible to run for Office, With both parties hoping to get their own Candidate in the White House.

For the Democrats, currently, with the current President not being allowed to run for another term. With the Vice President, SOS, SOT, and Senator Bernie Sanders taking prominent roles in the Leadership of the party, it seems that the party may have to discover new leadership. With this in mind, the new leader does certainly look to be an establishment Candidate from either the Administration or Congress.

For the Republicans, after two big landslide defeats, they are completely shattered with both outsiders and Establishment Candidates vying for control for the party. With the GOP totally divided, anyone could become the Nominee. The question is, will they be able to re-unite a destroyed party.

With both parties getting ready for war, could a Third Party be able to sneak through and win?

(Things that happen in this game might be retconned in the TL, but everything that happens here will be it's own separate timeline from the TL once it starts)

In Case anyone was wondering, here was the Primaries and the 2012 Election in this version:

2012 DEM Primary:



Pres. Phil Bredesen (D-TN)
Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT)

2012 GOP Primaries:



Former Gov George Pataki (R-NY)
Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR)
Former Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA)

2012 General:



Pres. Phil Bredesen (D-TN)/VP Blanche Lincoln (D-AR): 529/59.8%
Former Governor George Pataki (R-NY)/Former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK): 9/30.1%

A 2008 election game where John Kerry won in 2004 but his presidency was terrible so he faces primary opponents.

With odds like that, he probably would just say to running again at all.

So, to gauge interest, does AtNBD:A2016EG sound like a good idea?

In this Mad Season a 2020 election game.

Robert Muller indicts President Trump in May 2018 which leaves Mike Pence to be president. He later picks Ohio Govenor John Kasich as VP and the Republicans end up losing the senate and barely keeping the House.

I need a co mod to do this with me.

I don't think you know what indictment means..

Someone can be indicted but still not convicted. Indictment just means you have charges held against you.

When The Three Kingdoms runs it course (hopefully not for a while yet), I want to try a modernist, Lumine's Peace Through Strength-style game.

Yes, he was indicted with charges but the charges were eventually dismissed. The case stated that Fletcher had no actual relation to the scandal, and the person who gave him the charges was a hyperpartisan attorney general.

Games are generally best when you don't try and use them like Timelines.

I'd recommend a 2020 game...though I don't want to run it, and ideally it shouldn't start until after the midterms.

Someone would have to agree to play as Delaney too, as he's already in the race.

I liked the idea of Blue Florida and was enjoying it until it turned out that a sock account was rigging it for McCain.
However I do want to see it tried again but this time fair.

A new thread, I mean, and we link the original game in that thread.
