Something that occured to me- if we could get a suitable number of grognards together we could get a fun play-by-email game going.

Player 1- Germany
Player 2- USSR
Player 3- Poland, Norway, Low Countries
Player 4- Finland, Baltics, Hungary, Romania/Bulgaria
Player 5- UK
Player 6- Italy
Player 7- France
Player 8- Greece, Yugoslavia, Canada
Player 9- USAAs to the PBEM option. That may be quite good idea. However, the Players could be as follows;

1: Germany + Hungary and Romania
2: Italy + Finland
3: England + Canada and Greece
4: Russia + Yugoslavia
5: France + Belgium/Holland
6: U.S.A. + Estonia/Latvia/Lithuania + Ireland + Sweden + Turkey

As this is the order the nations go through.

Then ... Poland, Hungary, Denmark/Norway, Belgium/Holland, Spain, Estonia/Latvia/Lithuania, Turkey, Finland, Yugoslavia, Sweden, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Canada, Ireland, Greece, Romania, AlbaniaWell I was thinking the first go around at least we would stay historical and the neutrals like spain, sweden, turkey, etc. would be AI and off limits.

Are there any interested players out there? It would be a really long game of course, playing about a turn a day. I suppose at a minimum we would only need two players, one for the Axis and the other for the Allies. But the more the merrier of course! Is anyone else besides me game?

How many are keen ?

I'm in of course. :) No preference on country/countries yet, but leaning towards the Axis.

So other players need to install your mod, or just the setup player? I don't mind either way.

Heil Guderian!
I'd be interested, but I've never done a PBEM and also my Civ computer is not connected to the internet, if there is a way to get passed this I would be interested as... Poland and BeNeLux, I'm serious...

Yes, you need my specific Mod.

As to the mechanics of it. I believe a save file is emailed to the next player in turn.

Oh well, let me know where to get your mod if I make the play list.

Try it, it's a little slow, but you'll like it

kiwitt, could you put up a WWII event timeline like when events happen?

Will do. I am also considering preparing a strategy guide as well.

Assigned. You sure you don't want a major nation ?!?

As a point of interest, I generally beat Poland in 2 turns and Benelux in 1 turn.

Never mind that then, I'll go with USSR.

Ah, so this is a scenario where the civs are already well established? I think I'll pull out, I'm not so in to outright warfare right from the start (not good at it).

@ricketyclik - It takes about 4 years before outright war begins

@Civ_king - I make the change. As to your friend get him to post on here.

I have only two emails addresses. I will delay the start to 1 February 2011.

I'll need to have them by 30 January 2011 to go to sure that I can continue.

Please everyone PM me your email address. Thanks to Civ_King and D!CK_VII for theirs.

Only three of us ... might not make this interesting. I might have to call it off.

What did happened to this wonderful initiative? Very complex scenario, but given how slow typical PBEM games progress I might enjoy spending couple of hours analyzing the situation :lol:. My only request is -- don't make Yerevan Barbarian City!

I can make minor modification to this, if required. I have the source ;)

I was always wondering why do the European WW2 scenario creators end up with a small overcrowded Europe, with Atlantic Ocean, Sahara and Tundra occupying almost 2/3 of a map. Civ 3 had building with an ability to create units, those could represent American reinforcements. Any map should support at least 20 most populous cities of Third Reich (http://www.sporcle.com/games/professor88/germanys-largest-cities-1939)...
