$6.24 on GOG for another hour...tempted  :-\

I was to but I read that it was too easy to change government types/not very realistic. And for that reason, I'm out.

I bought it from GOG last week when it was $6.24 but haven't really done much other than fire it up to have a look so far.

I decided to pass on it for now...maybe I'll get it if it shows up even cheaper...
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.   Thomas Jefferson

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.   George Orwell

It is not even slightly realistic, except in the sense of giving an idea of how various changes affect other issues.

As a socio-cultural strategy game, though, it works pretty well. Think of it like a Euro game, with far more in-depth tracking of what results in what.
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.
