Q: What is a succession game? A: A game you play for an agreed amount of turns, then you post a log of what happened and the strategy involved (see 2 messages below for example), inside this forum, you'll also attach the savegame to the post (where you left at the end of these agreed turns). Q: Why should we play a succession game? A: To see the diffrent strategies we use, to learn from eachother, to have fun and to discuss what to do best. Rules: 1) You first have to become a member, if you want to be one then post your request below. 2) Play the game only for the agreed amount of time (see below "Time", updated regularely). 2) Do NOT use cheat codes, the ritire function, a mod or anything what would give you an advantage over the other players in this forum. 3) Do not play further than agreed, this may give you a better insight. 4) I would recommend that people NOT read the commentary by folks who've done the turns already, since it'll give too much information to them about how things are set up, you can look after you've done yours and discuss it with us. 5)The deadline is 48 hours till we move on the the next number of turns the exact deadline will be posted below under "deadline". If you need a one day extension, then mention this before the 48 hours have expired. And ofcourse you may play and post your result game faster. 6) After you've played the game for the agreed amount of turns, you'll post your log of the game and the savegame, feel free to attach pictures to your post and you may discuss anything afterwards. To get an idea of how to post a log see 2 posts below. 7) You'll pass your savegame on to your teammate* (*except for the first session)(*see diagram below) when you've completed your session, you'll do this within 48 hours. 8) We don't use variant rules. INFO: The latest savegame will be sent to you by your teammember (see diagram) or made availible in his post (as an attachment). Do not play the old ones and post about them. The first savegame will be attached below this post availible for you to download. TIP: To be able to write a detailed log it's easiest to take a pencil and paper, this way you can write everything down each turn so you won't forget what you'd done. An other option is to use a mod, wich is capable of logging your game, click here for more details.
