Loving it!

Okay, so, I am 10 years late to the party. But I am playing AJE and expansions, and loving it!

Like Rome, the glory that is AJE is timeless.

Moi aussi j'adore ce jeux , j y joue régulièrement.

Il aurait mérité encore quelques scénario.

Pour moi un des jeux les plus réussi sur cette période.

Pardonnez moi ... my French is terrible, but I had no trouble reading what you wrote ... I speak Kreyòl Ayisyin (Haitian Creole), but have studied French.

Have you checked out Pocus' new game Field of Glory Empires|Field of Glory II? (Matrix/Slitherine)? I like many of the Total War conversions like Roma Surrectum, Europa Babarorum, and Divide et Imperium. But all of these are more so sandboxes; although educational compared to AJE which really puts particular conflicts into a historical context and framework.

So far, I have taken about 5-6 classes on Rome through:

What is most fascinating ... Alexander and the Macedonians/Greeks; Ghengis Khan and the Mongols rapidly built amazing empires, but they also did not last. Only Rome and China really endured.

I got it, you prefer history to sandboxing.

Many years ago, I used to play EU2, and despite historical events, if you play long enough, the world will bear no resemblance to what really took place.

However, history's real what-ifs are fascinating:

* What if Alexander didn't die so young?

* What if Constantine didn't have his vision of the Christian cross?

* What if the climate had not changed and the Mongols were not driven to migrate from their traditional home?

* What is the Black Death had not killed off 50% of Europe's and Asia's population?

* What if the Mongols had not brought to an end the Golden Age of Islam?

* What if Batu Kahn was not distracted by the death of Great Kahn? Mongol culture called for a returning the homeland. Batu had planned to head West and Vienna next.

Delcastel,

En tout cas, Je suis tres content a faire votre connaisence. Excusez moi, si il y a beaucoup des fautes. C'est ma acente Haitienne. J'avais grandir a NYC. Et puis, mon education etait en Anglais.
