More akin to the Britannia system.

Naturally, I've done my own version of the northwest island section of the map

Re: New Version

So, any news on this? I appreciate that Mein Host has been very busy with War Room but it would be nice to get a little teaser about a new version.

Re: Have a Look at WAR ROOM

Rail rules are perfect; exactly what I've been pushing for all these years. I would suggest an option to play without the ability to break the pact before the fall of the relevant capital. I'd also suggest limiting co-operation between the Western and Eastern Allies, and between the Euro Axis and Ja...

Re: Have a Look at WAR ROOM

If the game ends in stalemate it's decided by a custard pie fight. Like a lot of the rules listed so far, but one concern I have is the old chestnut about capturing the capital as victory condition. If London had fallen would the entire British Empire have thrown down its weapons and surrendered? If...

How many generals?

Just wondering if it was ever part of the game that the number of generals (and therefore ultimately legions) a player has to begin with depends on the number of players in total? The number of legions in the Imperial era tended to be set from about 25 to 30. 6 x 5 = 30 5 x 6 = 30 4 x 8 = 32 3 x 10 ...
