Would anyone be interested in a 1976 game? It was an interesting election, and has a lot of potential for primary clown cars and independent candidacies.
I have always hoped for a ‘76 race to be tried

Can we finish the several games we have?

This, this, this.

Who would be down for an althist game? It's loosely based off of an old EU3 game I had as Poland, and will be largely influenced by OTL events. Some of the people will be familiar.

You've got 3 choices:

1. Full restart from 1836. Most of the theater is in northern Erikssonia, with a dispute over the Aroostook Territory in OTL Maine, Teian independence, Jerusalemite colonization plans, and Russian and French plans to colonize central Asia. There's a bit more room to go off and freelance here.

2. We continue on from where the guys on AAD left off in 1842 (along with a simulated turn). Here, the Aroostook War would be an Erikssonian victory, Teias would already have seceded, and the fracturing of the Sikh Empire creates an interesting power dynamic in India. Also, Louisiana and Scandinavia are reaching a crisis point in Oregon Country, which may take a turn for the worst. In essence, it would be a continuation of my game in AAD.

3. We do a time-skip to 1850. The Crimean War probably won't happen - nobody really cares that Russia expanded into Georgia, and the Intermarium has its own problems to deal with. Interesting features are Louisiana dealing with the newfound abolitionist movement in the Rust Belt, Jerusalem's impending colonization plan, Russia's modernization, the expansion of the Brasiglian Empire in South America, and the start of the Taiping Rebellion in Asia. This is a bit more structured.

Although Dynasties and Empires has yet to finish, and afterwards NTP's game will presumably occur, I'd like to reserve a game for future use:

King and Country

In 1669, Europe is at a crossroads. Although it has been over 20 years since the Peace of Westphalia, Germany has yet to fully recover. The fortunes of the House of Habsburg are being eclipsed by a rising French hegemony, and some fear that Louis XIV, the "Sun King" of France, may attempt to establish a universal monarchy on the lines of Charles V's over a century earlier.

Meanwhile, religious differences are largely being displaced by political and commercial interests. Reasons of state are now more important than ever. The notion of a "balance of power" is also just beginning to be established. In the Age of Absolutism, the fate of Europe depends on the whims of the crowned heads.

Some of the playable characters would include Louis XIV, Charles II of England, the Spanish, Portuguese, and Swedish regents, Leopold I, Johan de Witt, Mehmed IV, and more.

I'm not sure how many of you are aware of the huge nation sim games that use to exist in the early to late 2000's like Qpawn, Nations, SPC: Classic, Alodia and a lot of others. I use to love playing them when I was younger and was even a moderator and admin on a few and got really bummed they died out. Would anyone be interested in a revival of some sort of game like that?

I am thinking of doing a 2018 midterm election game where you are a high profile surrogate for any of the four main parties (Dem, GOP, Lib, Green) and it will start in August and every turn will be two weeks so six turns in total. Your goal is to win or retain the house, Senate and the governor's house

Would anyone play?

I'll consider it. Would you be able to play as a Candidate for a race?

Yeah, here’s an example: you play as Elizabeth Warren so you try to win both your race but you also a surrogate to win back congress

No, just prominent figures in 2018 politics

It's a creative idea, but we'd probably have to start somewhere before Election Day 2017, so we can include the Virginia and New Jersey Gubernatorial races (because those are really important too).

If we did that, I'd happily call either Barack Obama or Joe Biden, because they are the Democrats strongest surrogates who are not up for election (though Biden would at least have to think about about a possible Presidential run).

Also, if we did this, we could agree to continue on to the 2020 elections afterward, doing both the Presidential and Congressional/Gubernatorial races.

A few years ago On AH.com, a member by the name of Ghazghull made a very in depth election game based around President Infinity. It was utterly amazing, while I doubt we could duplicate it, it would nevertheless remain pretty interesting.

All I can say is that there's a lot of great people on there. I have a different opinion on the management, that's all I'll say.

The management there is awful, I was reading a timeline. A poster was muted for a week, for apart of the timeline. It was the US giving Fonda the death penalty for aiding the Vietamanese. I think it was Cal Bear?

That would be better but turns would be a month then. That would allow influence over the primaries too especially close ones like Ohio Senate, Florida Governors and Tennesee Governors

I think a 2018 midterms game would be interesting, but I really like the aspect of featuring 2017 especially. Maybe have it start a week after Trump's inaguration. I have to admit I'd only be in to it if we could have OCs and maybe the option of running in special elections and the New Jersey and Virginia gubernatorial elections along with primaries.

I'm drafting up a new type of game - a world-building game.

Basically, instead of being given a historical scenario and building off of it, we start from scratch. Everyone picks their own nation on a map, their own capital, and builds from there. In essence, instead of me giving people prompts, it's completely open-world. If there aren't enough players, I'll make up NPCs.

I'm not sure if the EU3 game I previously mentioned is more interesting, but I'd like to see the world-building tried out (maybe after Spamage does it).

How do you think a midterms game would work? It does sound rather interesting. We could form teams of players, maybe, and have them be candidates with team leaders (Pelosi and Trump, maybe), and the other players play as candidates. It sounds pretty fun, actually. I'd be down for being Pelosi.

At this point, Age of Revolutions may end up dying out. It would be an unfortunate and tragic end indeed, for such a promising game to end after just one turn. But if indeed the game meets its demise, I might like to host my King and Country game that I proposed earlier in the thread. Would anyone be interested in that?

Have you ever played President Infinity? Something like that with fundraising, ads, organization... something like that. Throw some RNG content in there. I like the idea of teams too. Maybe by party and or caucuses. Progressives, Blue Dogs, Neo-Cons, whatever you call a Trump-aligned ideology, et cetera. There was a game called President Infinity: The Race to the White House - A Political RPG​ on AH, I'd we should look in to that for some ideas. Unfortunately I can't access that thread because I'm no longer a member of AH.

I'd let you take the next spot, ftr. My intention's obviously not to screw NTP over.
