    Looks like none have picked up on what I was saying in my previous post, i.e. "can we attract a new generation of Forum games players?" I suppose some nostalgia gaming is good too.

    The main issue is the lack of cross pollination. With little to no live games, anyone lurking and doing a drive-by won't find anything to hook their interest. Similarly, if none of this community is also active in Civ6 parts of the forum, its unlikely and "new blood" would even become aware of this backwater part of the forum (no offence!). Similarly OT doesn't seem to get much flow either.

    I've posted in a few older "Forum Games" threads and it is almost utterly dead.

    It will take quite a shock to revive such matters. You need probably 10-20 active players to set off the chain reaction.

    I'm assuming Poland is the result of a diplomatic faux pas where the EU referred to it as part of Eastern Europe.

    Bet you feel silly now. Bet you feel like a silly billy. Bet you feel quite perturbed you didn't guess it. Bet you're questioning your memory. Well guess what? You're old and you've got memory problems.

    I may be getting old, but I do remember the plan to poison the Nile with Sarin.

    Yeah I really would not let that go. That was a terrible idea.

    I'm trying to have only a few kinda subtle alterations in order to keep the thing as grounded in some sense of the current real-life political situation, which is interesting enough. That having been said, Poland is going to have a special relationship with Europe owing to the fact the Germans and French revolted against the draft and Europe has become reliant on Polish manpower to handle the Balkan Wars.

    It's obviously not a situation that can last long, and it's a little bat****, but then that's kind of the theme of the game.
