Default The Great Game - 2010 to 2300

Hello folks! I'm running a "Great Game" akin to the one used to create the 2300 AD universe, starting in 2010, and lasting until at least 2300. I'm curious to know if anyone would be interested in joining such a game. You can play as any major country on Earth not taken by another player, which has been preliminarily defined as anyone in the G20, as well as Iran and Israel.

We currently have 12 players, playing Russia, China, India, Brazil, the United States, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, Indonesia, and Japan. Europe still has a bit of space left (Turkey, Ukraine, maybe Italy), and Africa and the Middle East are wide open (Egypt, South Africa, Iran, maybe Iraq or Israel). South Korea is on the outside end of playable, but is possible. PM me, Luke Wethington, or email me at wethington1 (at) yahoo (dot) com. As long as the subject header contains the words "Great Game," you'll bypass the overzealous Yahoo spam filter. You can visit the website too, https://sites.google.com/site/2300adgame/

Edit 1/28/11: Updated taken countries

I'm certainly interested, and I've played similar games before.

tried to mail you, but I'm not sure if that worked.

I suspect the insane spam filter Yahoo has is responsible for that. Try resending, but with the words "Great Game" in the subject header. Theoretically my filter should override the spam filter.

Our good ole game is still alive! We've only managed to get one turn done, and half the rules are being written on the fly, but we're quite active. 10 players so far. Spots open include Turkey, Egypt, South Africa, Argentina, and Japan. On the outside of playability includes Canada, Mexico, and Ukraine. Those last ones are nearly puppets of the relevant nearby neighbor.

12 players and going up, folks! We've only managed to get one turn done, so its still very close to current. Next turn is 2015 - 2020.

I also wonder that. There are no more news since jan 31th.

For what I've seen, it seems to work by impulses: periods of frenethic activity followed by lulls when nothing is done.

I guess the referee and players have someting to do in their real lives than cause those impulse-like working...

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

Impuses is one way of defining it. You're quite right in that real life stuff has been cropping up. I'm going through my final year at university, and it's a tad hectic...

That said, this is still somehow running. I've got a rather devoted set of players, given the amount of lulls there have been.
