I reiterate drooling interest, especially in Charles II!

Actually, I don't think I have the time or energy to host a game at the present moment. Sawx can take the next spot if he wants.

I'm going to spend the next few days looking into launching a new historical nation game.

There are three game ideas I am currently working:

1) The War of 1812. The British have just burned Washington to the ground, forcing President Madison to flee the city. How does this war progress? Has the American experiment failed? Meanwhile, war rages in Europe, with the British fighting Napoleon's French Empire on the continent as the Frenchman looks to build an empire from Iberia to Siberia.

2) A New Era. Set in 1901, just after the death of Queen Victoria. The young King Edward VII sits on the British throne as fissures in the great British Empire began to develop. How will he respond to these challenges and set himself apart from his mighty mother? Across the Atlantic, the American President William McKinley is seeking to build an empire of his own and has come into conflict with the Spanish in the process while also having to deal with a rise in radical labor at home.

3) Gods and Men. It is 1630. King Charles II has just reclaimed the throne of England in the name of his late father. Now he must deal with rebuilding his kingdom, as well as dealing with matters of faith, as rumors abound that he harbors Catholic sentiments. The tides are also turning in foreign policy, as the Anglo-Dutch alliance established under Queen Elizabeth is fraying and there is support growing for a pro-French policy in court.

Does anyone have any thoughts or input as to what idea they like the most (or dislike the most)?

Well, the last idea sounds very similar to my proposed game, but since I don't have time to host I would indeed like to play in your version of the game. I'd certainly prefer it over the other two proposals. As a sidenote, I chose 1669 because it seemed to make more sense to me to choose a year in which Europe was at peace, but 1660 works too.

Numbers 2 and 3 sound quite interesting. I'd be down for playing in either.

I liked ideas 1 and 3 more, although I would be willing to play idea 2 as well.

Frankly, I've always thought we need a Napoleonic Game, the last one to take place there was one of the earlier ones some five to six years ago. I'd probably play all three of them, but some Napoleonic setting is something that I think has a lot of potential.

I'm not taking the next spot. After the hell I raised, it'd be in very, very poor taste.

If someone is hosting a game, I would appreciate a bit of forewarning via PM. I always seeem to miss sign-ups, and that kind of bothers me.

Would people rather see a new nation game a la Dynasties and Empires or a new mock parliament a la The Great Experiment? I'm very open, and interested, in moving down either path.

I think that the nation game, if that's the path, would be a War of 1812/Napoleonic game.

Both sound excellent to be honest, and would enthusiastically play either. 1812 would seem slightly more appealing not knowing what the mock parliament setting would be, what did you had in mind?

If that is the route, I would go with something similar to your Great Experiment, although probably set a little later on. Probably either the 1860s (post-Civil War) or the 1910s (as a build up to the Great War).

I'm interested in launching a potential alternate history scenario. It would be based on Mock Parliament to some extent, but it is a different concept for the most part. I'd love to have a more experienced moderator (like Lumine) co-moderate the game with me!

I'm envisioning a game that is similar to your standard presidential election game, but with a parliamentary system instead. Each player would be the leader of a party (listed below), and would have to campaign with candidates in select ridings. I'll provide an electoral map and list the specific constituencies in the country (351 total), and the players would be responsible for targeting key districts/ridings/constituencies, winning debates, running ads, etc, etc, etc.

I'm looking for experienced players, as the number of slots are limited. The reason I'm being such a dick about this is because I intend to use the results of this game as part of a timeline I've been working on for years Tongue. Afterwards, I'll use the results to write the timeline's prologue and setting up the foundation for a possible sequel should this one be successful.

As an aside, I also think a 1720s game could prove to be quite interesting. An underrated period, it saw a break from usual 18th century fare due to the French and British, enemies throughout all the rest of the century, forming an alliance against the Austrians and Spanish.

So, I've decided that it'd be for the better if I write the timeline first, and then once I reach the present day, I'll try and run a scenario based on it. It'd be no different than any of our previous games aside from the setting. Each player would take a party leader, write up a schedule, campaign on various issues, make ads, support critical candidates in targeted constituencies, etc, etc. However, starting such a game without fully outlining the history behind it would leave to many blank holes to play past.

But I'll keep everyone posted in case there's an interest.

Kingpoleon has claimed Napoleon, via PM, so I will honor that request. If he does not post in the game thread that he wants to continue as Napoleon in the next 48 hours, I will open Napoleon to other players.

Ok, I have decided that once a few more games end I will start an election 2018 game but it will be on a specific race.

Right now, my top choices are the Arizona Senate Race, Georgia Gubernatorial, Ohio Gubernatorial Race and Florida Gubernatorial. I would like some input on which one I should choose, all my top choices would be good since I know a lot about the races, candidates and all the races were very close
