I am looking for players to participate in a College of Cardinals game I am forming. College of Cardinals is a 12-player variant set in Medieval Europe at a time when crusading zeal within the Catholic community was still high. This will be an e-mail contest. I will serve as the GM and provide the adjudications. Moves will take place on Tuesdays. Retreats, adjustments, etc., will take place on Thursdays. Players will bid for the Major Realm they play using auction rules that I will provide. Based on previous play tests, I estimate the game will run from January through May or June.
Several players are already on-board. I will fill the remaining seats on a first come-first serve basis. If you are interested in playing or observing (and I cannot have enough observers), or you have questions on the variant itself, please contact me at vonpowell(at)aol.com. I will send you a copy of the map, variant rules, house rules, and auction rules.
