Looking for a few eager play-testers to try out a Diplomacy variant called Europe 1615. Need 11 players. A description of the game is at http://www.dipwiki.com/index.php?title=Europe_1615:_Prelude_to_War.
If you have ever player Ambition and Empire, Payola, 1648, you may be comfortable with this variant. It's gone though a number of changes and has been play-tested over several years. I've been keeping those rules that work the best and that players enjoy the most.
So, if you're interested pleases shoot me an email at medeiros412(at)aim.com. Thanks.
