    PBEM - THE DILEMMA


    INTRODUCTION
    What to do if we have a huge army and no money? What should we do? Disband the army? Use the army? Use the element of surprise and attack, making the war attrition take care of the unsustainable army? Or select only the best soldiers and wait for the warmongers to make their “surprise” attack? Is the best to invest in the army and forget all research or outwit the warlike nations, surprising them with a small but highly advanced army?

    This PBEM is intended to start from the Classical era with some unique choices. There will be some cities already placed on the map. Some Wonders will be already in the game. Some wonders won't be possible to build. And other wonders will be available to build.

    This game is designed for players that like to be surprised by a non-usual scenario.
    The strategic resources will be handpicked according to a secret masterplan.

    It seems that Samarghata isn't available after all. So we still need one player more.

    Well ... post #1 expresses a hope ... not a certainty. Do you want to set up the gmail account ... or do you want me to do that? :)

    It seems that one players prefers a certain building over a World Wonder one. I will allow it and ask if anyone else wants to change their choice, it is free to do so.

    So players can choose any building (Wonders included) in the game to have in their capital.

    I'm not sure why this is so surprising ... building over wonder ... as the original bonus said you could choose one building (wonders including) ... which ... to me ... implied that you could select a non-Wonder building if you wanted to.

    Oh ... and ... yes it is I ... the player who wants a building instead of a wonder :D.

    Edit: Tracker gmail account set up ... pbem.dilemma at g mail dot com. Tracker page will be ...

    GPS. Sorry for the delay... I sent the file to the tracker's gmail address, but it seems the tracker is not updating the round. Not sure if Sinimusta has received the file.
