    Unfortunately it is a little tricky to set up RTW hot seat so we don't currently have any games with it, but our Kingdoms and Empires game just got started off, is using the base game, and has some other relatively new players in it as well. Feel free to head over tote in game thread and claim a faction that I can change to human controlled for you. You would be a couple turns behind but it shouldn't be too much of a problem if you pick Russia for example since they are pretty isolated at the start.

    Welcome Brother Sam! Might I suggest Poland? The AI seems to have been good to them, as they have grown since the start of the game. They also possess good, high armour infantry, which is good for an AR game.

    On average, how long are we talking between turns, and indeed for a complete game? It seems to be taking an age to get round to my go!

    Things have been rather slow lately unfortunately, and turns can take around a couple of weeks to get through for everyone. As to games themselves, it really varies too much to be able to put a number on it. :)

    We have some regulars but we really need fresh blood to sacrifice on the altar of the Hotseat gods. They are ever insatiable.

    Rome II is great for me, I'm playing it and having a blast. I am planning on an RPG or succession game but I want the patches to stabilize somewhat.

    Well apart from starting a new game (see the other thread where I proposed it). Also, I had proposed a co-op type of Hotseat (players vs. the AI) where we try to overthrow a massively bloated ERE blob with unlimited gold. Mind you, I'm not sure this one is winnable, but it might be fun.

    Hey! Came back to Org when I heard(actually read) that EB2 was released. So, I was wondering if it's possible to use it to create a hotseat game?

    Yep, I'll give a try to two HS I hope within next two weeks.
    You'll need Stainless steel mode and Ancient Conquest, probably, for them.

    Hiya! (^_^) /

    I know it has been awhile since I've been on here or even the hotseat scene in general, but thought I'd stop by and see how things are going here. I still haven't gotten to play a hotseat with you guys, so I might even be up for that if there's anything starting. I'm probably going to be a bit rusty since the most I've been doing with TW lately is working on my own M2TW mod, but I'd love to see if I still have any amount of my old skill.

    Hello!

    We've been discussing a few possible game ideas recently, so feel free to take a look. I'd personally recommend Wrath of the Khan III. This is a game concept I'd love and we need more people for it to get off the ground.

    You should see if ATPG wants to play as the Khan and use it for his new youtube channel...

    I checked out WotKIII and it sure looks to be a good game with much potential for some interesting diplomacy, challenge, and epic war. I'd be up to join for sure! (^w^)
