I have been member of the Civfanatics forums for a while, and I've always enjoyed reading Successions Games for games like CivIII and CivIV. So I was thinking why not try it with EU2?
What is a Succession game?
I've taken this from CFC:
A succession game (SG) is a Single Player (SP) game played by a group of people.
While playing the person must keep a timeline of the most important events that occur during his reign. When finished, he passes on a saved game to the next player (either by uploading it on the site or by mail) and posts the timeline in the game's thread so that other players are informed of what happened.
Rules normally used:
- 5 players.
- 20 turns (in EU2 5 or 10 years)
- 24h confirmation period (you have to say you’re playing; otherwise you’re skipped).
- 48h to 72h (since the saved game was passed) to play the game (and post the timeline).
(These rules can of course be changed)
If you still aren't sure what a SG is, you can take a look at this example from CFC.
The main problem with the SG in the example was the lack of rules and discussion. I will therefore add some more rules so the game won't get ruined/boring/whatever (see post #2).
So, is anyone interested in a SG? Anybody can join, but you must understand game basics and be able to discuss on goals etc. It is also important that you have time to play regularly, but it's possible to skip a turn of course.
I haven't yet decided on what mod to use and what nation to play, so we could discuss and vote over this here.
AGCEEP 1.54 (<-- I vote for this one)
EP (latest version)
Vanilla (no mod)
No map mod will be used.
We'll decide country after we've picked a mod. However, feel free to think about a suitable country we can play. It can be a bit hard to make a good choice, since we don't want it too easy (e.g. France or England) or too hard (e.g. Bosnia or Norway).
I vote for hard/weakling (might change it, as it depends on what country we choose)
