    first country to start as?

    to pass the time what country is everyone planning on playing first, and at what date? for me it will be Venice 1453 with the aim of becoming a dominant naval and trading power in the Mediterranean.

    I'm going to play as Poland (earliest date possible) with the goal to "into space"

    It'd be cool to try to modernise as the Golden Horde, or play Korea or some Japanese state under China's tributary system.

    Some European state, that's for sure.
    I think a HRE minor could be good to keep a very tight overview of what is happening.
    Good for a learning game, and I'm very excited about the new HRE features.

    Probably England or Castille for a second game.

    A sub-saharan nation or an italian state most probably.

    I can tell you, between tribal quarrels, attempts at modernization and religious (there are both Muslims and Pagans at start) troubles, sub-saharan nations can play quite interesting.

    Denmark, venice, or any sub-saharan nation suitable to form a west african empire

    That's easy: One of the mongol states with a goal to form the Qing empire.

    England. The first country I play in any strategy game. Because it's a good learning country and I can hum Britannia Rule the Waves while I play.

    And nothing feels better than beating up France.

    Austria, Denmark, Ethipoia or Majapahit to best check out how the game really works and to get an idea of which countries are the most fun (for me :-p).

    Portugal, from 1453.

    Maybe Hesse, with a goal to break down the HRE and conquer to the sea.

    In the past I've always liked taking a really weak country and making it a big player, but this may be quite hard in MM. So, I suspect I may give Aragon or someone a go first off.

    ...and the wiser is... Burgonde!

    Portugal is to be played in the tutorial the first time you play Magna Mundi. You should not avoid the tutorial in this game (specially after we developed so much for it). You also get an achievement for playing the tutorial for 100 years.

    Ottomans with the aim of creating the Roman Empire!
    "Beşiktaş fans call themselves Çarşı and there is no doubt which turkish team have the best and most strident and endearing songs"
    ...........................The Guardian.......................

    "Beşiktaş is the underdog, the working-class team, known for the ardor of its fans. The language of Beşiktaş is characterized both by over-the-top profanity and by the poetry of longing and love. One of the most important Beşiktaşfan clubs is called Çarşi."
