If any of you don't like the current color scheme, why not try an alternative that you can enable, yourself? If you scroll to the very bottom of the thread, you'll see a combination box at the lower left that's called the "Quick Style Chooser". It may say something like "DarkVision". If you click th...

How about a poll?

Perhaps you could post a poll specifying the different options, to include Lodi's "tournament special" package. A thoughtfully designed poll would give you an idea of how many people might play, what options would be preferred by those who would play, whether "no entrenchments' is a deal breaker, et...

Heraldry of the Iron Tiger

For those gentlemen who are interested, this post explains the "heraldry" of the Iron Tiger medal. Many references are made to the heraldry of earlier medals, as explained in their original posts. Hopefully, what follows isn't too confusing for those of you who haven't followed this thread from its ...

Recognizing Manstein's playing strength

This is the 500th post in this thread! :) What better way to mark the occasion, than to recognize the strongest AACW player in our forum's history? That player is Manstein . Manstein won our first tournament, in 2009; and he won the second one, too. Before the tournaments began, he was an active PBE...

Hosting Badges and Medals

[...] The Tournament Director Medal is the third medal in a new series of four that I've created, dealing with hosting games and directing tournaments. There are two ways to play a PBEM game. The easiest is to simply find an opponent, and begin your game. The second way is to find a third person, t...

Many of you have thanked me for presenting this quiz and providing such interesting questions.

Wad or not, I'm finding it rather frustrating to have to constantly micro-manage and shuttle all of my ships back and forth to harbors as they take, in my my view, way too many hits just for sailing anywhere.

A new era for AGEod

From my perspective, I just don't see how AJE could be anything other than a Roman antiquity-based game! It's an era for which AGEod hasn't yet released an AGE game; and we're told that the game's scenarios will span vast periods of time. From the dawn of classical antiquity to the middle ages certa...
