The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Sorry, but I can't disagree more. Japan enjoyed almost total strategic surprise and almost overan India.That was a stupid objective with no sense at all. The Japanese should have concentrated their force in China and Pacific.
I am positive it would not have happened, unless Germany would have knocked Persia out as well. The CW troops in India were slowly falling back to Karachi, a bottleneck with the last VP, on mountainous terrain and behind a river.Well now for the Japan is the option of liberating a puppet in India and feeding of its industry. (I admit - I rarely play Japan, so do not know the required provinces to liberate something there)
No, the fog of war was ONLY lifted on one of the clients, the one used by the other course instructor, Dr. Lacey. He sat with the control cell as the journalist (and referee, with Col. Barrick) for the game. Many of my slides come from his screenshots of the game.No, only for the control group (5 PCs I believe, check Colonel Barrick's PDF).
A good simulation can re-enact history even when it is being altered, and even when people are aware of what it would have been.Interestingly, the Soviet team became emotionally
invested in the Allies opening a Second Front. There was great consternation by the Soviet
players at the delay in an Allied landing in Italy or France. They were desperate to draw
German forces away from the Eastern Front. The Soviet players even grew suspicious of
US/UK intentions, setting the seeds for a potential Cold War.
