    I am 31 minutes too late to make a witty faux-naif comment.

    Nice try, Rhye. But we all know stability is far too complicated a mechanic for a board game.

    I am shocked Rhye didn't announce a new version today: with Poland, Ukraine and playable Byzantines.

    He created it. But he kept it for himself, since no one would have believed him

    You have a strange sense of humor, Rhye. :)

    Whether or not you're serious, I think this is a great idea. I have a secondhand copy of Avalon Hill Civilization, although I've never played it. And if a boardgame-style RFC was implemented as a computer game with adequate AI, I'd play the crap out of it.

    Heck, if any Avalon Hill-style game was implemented as a computer game with adequate AI, I'd play the crap out of it. I tried the official computer versions of Diplomacy and Axis & Allies --- BAAAARRRF, GAG, RETCH. Squad Leader was actually pretty good, although it wasn't much like the board game.

    Oh yeah - and years ago, there was a shareware Macintosh version of Risk that I played quite a bit and was popular with some other people for a while. A number of years afterwards, I found out that a guy I had been working closely with for over a year was the author of that game. That was funny.

    Rhye told us his super special awesome secret project on that one April one before.

    The spoilered April Fools was a lie.
