Let's try getting another PBEM going for us newbies to the game. Simple Economy.

Any takers? If so, any preference on power?

Maybe we take an approach like EiA (and Franck's idea )where you bid glory points (the lowest starting glory for each power gets that power) for each nation.

Austria
Britian
Spain
Ottoman Empire
Russia
France
Prussia
Sweden

HiHi

Sorry Andrew I'm not so sure it's a good idea for Newbies, my reasoning being they ain't got enough experiance to know about the different Nations and therefore what to bid, they could end up taking a stab in the dark and get lumbered with either too high or too low a bid.

Just a thought.

All the Best
Peter

I would be interested in joining this game as well.

Would play British French Prussia or Russia.

Bidding would be fine in my opinion, if somebody goes completely nuts in the opinion of the group we can do a rebid.

If this is still happening and have not started yet, I would be happy to join (if you want one more guy that is). Am fine with playing anything but Sweden (Just plain wrong for a Norwegian to gain European supremacy for Sweden )

HiHi

Just had another look at the list, Mus this seem OK to you?

Jammy and you being the only 2 who have both put in the same nation on your preferences ie Prussia, let Jammy make his call Prussia or Sweden, then you choose one of yours, thats 2 down, soon as we hear from Andrew, Terge & IW with definate calls we can narrow it down even further, then if other folk join in before we start they get whats left.

Seem OK?

All the Best
Peter

Sounds good I guess.

I wonder if there are even still enough players here though, some havent been heard from in days.  I think we should try to start a game with people we know are going to be active.  Me you matto and a couple other guys from our old game plus a few new guys.

Maybe start a 3rd game in case this one is already a bust?

Kinda frustrated with people leaving right in the middle of a game.



I think maybe we should try to start an extra game from scratch with players we know can do 1 turn a day and try to get a decent game goin here.

Checking in...

Just noticed this is simple economy, would prefer advanced, but that's ok... just want to get something going.

I don't really have any preferance on nation... will take whatever. Pick one out of a hat if need be.

HiHi

I think Andrews idea re the simple econ was so we CoG Nubbies could practice before getting on to the 'hard stuff'

Anyone any thoughts on scenerio? IMO it needs to be a long one else there is bog all you can acomplish 'Developement wise, doesnt matter too much if someone does get the 1000 GP quickly the game can still carry on and have another winner at the end

IW would you be OK taking France? it would mean you would have to set up the game and email the 1st turn to everybody else.  After that the last player recieves all the finished turns, merges them, then does his turn and sends out the end of turn file to everybody, all players then do their turn and return to last player and so on (least thats how it's been explained to me)

A 'Just in case', can everybody interested in playing please make sure they have ticked the 'Notify me by email when someone replies' box so we all get replies quickly.

PS unless desperate can I please add Russia to my "No's" I'm playing it in another gamr so a change would be good.

All the Best
Peter

I'd be ok with taking France, let's see what Andrew has in mind in case he wanted to take them. Might be better to keep it open for now though, in case a new player comes along that wants France. Once we get enough players I'll take whatever.

For scenario it seems like a shorter one would make more sense with simple econ, but doesn't matter to me. Just thinking that if this is more of a practice game we probably wouldn't want a longer scenario. Plus I'd rather have control of econ if it's going to be a longer game.

Whatever we do I want to make sure our game is started only with active players.  Our current game with 2 turns achieved in a week is very unsatisfying.

Also I really like the idea of bidding for countries as long as nobody throws a weird number out there in which case we could do a rebid.

As far as simple economy versus advanced economy goes. for PBEM I would advanced economy would almost be required for it to stay interesting.  Simple economy and no detailed battles doesnt leave much for the Player to tilt things in his direction.

HiHi

Have just emailed Andrew to come and sort out the game he proposed.

Probably just me being Thick, but I totally fail to “see” what this bidding thing is all about, we don’t have enough players to fill the slots  anyhow so everyone can have what they want so ... ?  anyone care to explain I’m obviously missing something (?? Err keep it clean folks  )

All the Best

Sorry guys. Didn't see all the activity in the subforum the times I checked.

How do these look? Anyone have any issues with the sides?

Mus (British)
IronWarrior  (France)
KingMaker (Russia)
AndrewKurtz  (Turkey)
JameyCribbs (Prussia)
terje439 (Austria)

BTW, if someone else wants to take the lead, step up. I don't feel any need to drive this just because I started the thread.

HiHi

If all you folks are happy with what you got, could I please change to Sweden (doing Russia at the moment)

Maybe set a ground rule that all turns must be in 48hrs after last player sends the new turn ??? unless notification is made to the MB that you may be late due to Death/work/Holiday etc. (apparently the last player can open the file click on End turn of non returnies to keep the game flowing)

General cosensus seems to be to change to Advanced rules, anyone any problem with that ???

My personal preference is either alter the GP total to say 2000 if that can be done ???(apparently 2 major victories against Major powers and thats it!) OR, run a long campaign, say 12yrs minimum, and have 2 winners, 1st to 1000GP & whoever is Highest at the end of the campaign, ie give folk something to fight for in the long term.

Thoughts?

All the Best
Peter

I haven't been able to game for 6 months and just picked up COGEE to get back into some gaming. I'm not experienced w/ COG or COGEE. I've played a few years against the AI.

I'd be willing to take a country. It looks like Russia(Kingmaker just asked to switch to Sweden) and Spain are open. I'd probably prefer Russia since I don't feel confident that I can manage naval warfare - have only played as Austria and Prussia so far against AI.

If you'd rather not have a newb in the game that's fine too - I don't mind - just offering.

Which scenario are you thinking about? (92, 96, 05, ?)

If you are still short of a player, I'd give the Ottomans a stab if you have no other volunteers?
