Re: How old are you guys ?

67 in a month and a half -- I might be the oldest geezer here. Please say that I am not. Grew up playing Avalon Hill board games. Been with Ageod since Birth of America was released.

Re: ---> Field of Glory: Empires announced! <---

Well, I am certainly excited about this new engine, if not [so much] the new game. I'll probably buy it anyway, being a loyal Ageod customer [and, I own FoG II]. It certainly looks nice. I have always dreamed of something like this ... only for the Civil War game. [hint!] Congratulations on opening ...

Re: Things still to fixed(after 1.0.6.1)?

The game is pretty darn good as is. I have enjoyed playing it for many years. If Ageod ever decides to work on this game again, either as a patch/expansion or, more likely, a version 3, the one thing I would really like to see is a vastly improved AI for the single players among us. The AI has impro...

Re: Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and what are you doing these days thread!

HOI4 is okay, but you need some AI mods for it to be remotely challenging in SP. It's also very deep mechanics wise, while in some ways being too light (the lack of any sort of chain of command enforcement is particularly glaring). Upcoming patch deals with chain of command and much more. I don't k...

No problem here, General. One of my Ageod games - I forget which one - has never updated properly [or, as the other games do] ... I just checked, it is To End All Wars. Clicking the Check for Updates button does nothing - but click. :bonk:

Re: Missouri Brigade

I'm not sure I understand what you mean, but the Missouri Brigade usually [always?] appears in the game not yet fully formed. Shortly thereafter, another brigade or two will appear separately. Together, they form the full Missouri Brigade.

The gaming world is in dire need of a strategic WWII Pacific Theater game -- one that is designed in the usual beautiful AGEOD manner ... and is PLAYABLE. Vietnam would be cool, too. I wouldn't mind seeing a New World conquest endeavor and/or the Indian Wars. Just my 2 or 3 cents.
