Belgian game, 1936. Had a great time first conquering Java and a state from Netherlands. Was first colonizing Africa. Then I took my chances with NGF because they were destroyed by Austria/France/Russia.With Great Wars by my side started getting French States (accepted culture :D). After that I won a war against UK and after that the US. It was a funny game with lots of revolutions and a powerful civilized China. The first one I got to the very end.

Germany did not formed, but Prussia became proletarian dictatorship and exported revolution in some states around itself, basically forming loose confederation of Socialist States of Germany ( not all of those states proper proletarian dictatorships, but all of them ruled by socialists and communists ):D

USA ruled by socialist party, people of US vote either for socialists of for conservatives from Democratic Party, putting new meaning in term Red State:D

Revolutions completely abolished monarchies in Britain, France and Spain, but before becoming full bodied democracies France first had to suffer trough bourgeois dictatorship ( a really short lived though ) and Britain lived trough glorious socialist revolution ( for about 10 years ) :

Messed around a bit with my old Morocco->Moroccan Empire game (minor self-made, 100% cosmetic mod to form the "Moroccan Empire" instead of Arabia). Just finished the conquest of the vanilla-Arabian cores, along with freeing Armenia (mostly to make the borders a bit more palpable):

The Moroccan Empire

World Map
V2_MAP_ARA_1921.10.5_1_zpspnrcvhjm.png


It's been a good run, but I'll be honest: my failure to turn Morocco into an industrial powerhouse has really soured me, and with only a little over a decade left I think I'm out of time to pull that off, meaning I've accomplished I think about all I realistically can with Morocco this go around.

But don't get me wrong: I'm immensely proud of myself to have done this much. If anyone else has ever had any significant success with Morocco, let alone turned them into the number five GP in the world, I've never heard of it. I'll leave it on the shelf to finish one day, especially if I can learn how to maximize those last few years and at least get a taste of what Morocco could've been if I was better at this game. Onwards to something else, I suppose. Could always try the Khiva challenge again (which, by the way, HUGE PROPS to the guy above me for getting Bukhara up to 11. Getting any of the Turkmenistan states to even Secondary Power status is a feat, though I do hope to one day turn Khiva into a GP... somehow), or maybe take the reigns of Russia->Soviet Union and invade America Red Dawn style (though I usually don't like starting with one of the big dogs, tends to get easy)... or I could always take yet another crack at Argentina. Columbia (the one in North America) is also an amusing prospect, as could be one of the Eastern European releasables such as Belarus or Ruthenia.
