Europa Universalis: The Price of Power will be out by then, and I plan to host games of this.

Ohio Universalis: The Price of Power, anyone?

I will also host teaching games of 2 Minutes To Midnight and possibly one of Successors 4th Edition using the giant map.

Re: Games for Winterfest XXV - Empires in Arms

Post by CintiJeff » Sun Sep 04, 2022 5:01 pm

All:

In 2022 some of us talked about playing a game of Empires in Arms this year, either as a side or main game.

From the notes I had, there were 6 interested players:
Jeff F
Lee
Jordan
Doug
Kevin
Todd

As far as what to play, it wouldn't be Winterfest without a campaign, right? EIA does have multiple campaigns so if we choose, we can do a shorter one we could easily complete as a side game. If we play the Grand Campaign we'd go as far as we can.

The various campaigns are:
1805-1807
1812-1815
1813-1815
Grand Campaign

First off, reply back as to whether you're still interested and your thoughts on scenario(s).

If we get enough interest once we get players identified I'll set up a separate folder and we can select powers and do some initial diplomacy. Since I'm overseeing the game I'll take a less involved power (not France or Britain).

As a newly minted retiree, I am looking forward to attending for the entire fest.

I have several campaign game suggestions to toss about to see who might be interested, whether they be 2 or 4+ player games. I consider none of these titles as side games, please.

Hey Jeff, count me in on an EiA side game. If it goes well maybe we consider doing it as a main game in future.

For main game, I'd consider (in addition to OCS):
GOSS
GTS
Der Weltkrieg
La Batt
GCACW
GBACW
LOB
BCS

Hi Jeff,

I'm interested in the EiA game as a side game, and I probably have another (first time attendee) who would be interested as well.

Jeff,

Am still interested in playing.

What version of the rules will you be using?

Did you look at that link I gave you?

Merv, John,

I aim to attend. I will be bringing my final playtest of the OCS OST front end Jan 44 campaign game. Mac and Roy are bringing special tables . Curtis and chip with Dave will also be joining the game. Others can probably be accommodated if interested as Faz cannot make it .

Tony,
Glad to hear you will join us again. We will have your usual space blocked off.
