  1. Let's play Settlers of Catan

    Now that The Radiant League is completed (congrats to Deus for stomping the rest of us), it's time to start up our next series of competitions. Instead of a prolonged competition like we saw in The Radiant League (interest waned about 10 days in), we're going to do tournament style competitions, with a rotation every 7-10 days or whenever the current competition is completed (next up is Risk). First up: Settlers of Catan What is Settlers of Catan? Settlers of Catan is one of the better board games out there, created in 1995. Players assume the roles of settlers, each attempting to build and develop holdings while trading and acquiring resources. Players are rewarded points as their settlements grow; the first to reach a set number of points is the winner. Gameplay: How to play: You'll need to sign up here to play on line for free: http://www.playcatan.com/en/ I'll designate a member of each group of 4 playing who should set up the game and a password for the game. The competition: Rather than a monetary prize like we did for the baseball league, I'm going to tie in our new Order system into this game. The winning member will have 1 credit donated to their Order. That credit may be used by their Order to put up an ad gloating about their victory, or it can be saved and eventually used to put up the Order's flag in game. If a foreign ambassador wins, they get to keep the credit to use as they see fit. The number of games and people eliminated per game will depend on how many people sign up. I'm thinking the top 2 from each game advance, with the winner of the final round getting the credit. Games will be played at a time that works for all the assigned members of a group.

  4. Musical Chairs - a Paradox Megacampaign

    I'm going to do another AAR, this time with a twist - I'm going to switch countries by vote at certain time points: 769 - Start of AAR 1000 - Switch #1 1200 - Switch #2 1400 - Switch #3 EU4 - Final Switch Poll for starting spots (post response) Ingria - Single Province in the Baltics Kiev - Two provinces/duchy in Eastern Europe Desmond - Single Province in Southern Ireland (I'd do a Republic, since I surprisingly haven't tried that play style yet) Marrakech - two provinces in northern africa (I haven't played as muslim yet/could be interesting) Turkish Steppes - 4 province Duchy (I haven't played as a nomad yet)

  6. Musical Chairs - a Paradox Megacampaign

    CK2 Start - 769: Dublin, Ireland (This is the earliest screenshot I have from my saves - ~800 and France is united/the muslim world has fractured a tad). CK2 Major Events: I united Ireland, became a republic, and decided I wouldn't expand too much in CK2 (figured that would make for a more fun EU4/Vicky II/HOI4 experience). I ended up taking the Canary Islands and Iceland to ensure Atlantic supremacy. I spent most of the game toying with the Republic Mechanics and fighting for the stability of Christian Europe via Crusades or Jihad Defense. I took Spain in a Crusade and released it once it was strong enough, Portugal ended up splitting off later on. Syria is probably the strongest nation in the game at the end of my CK2 play through. The Byzantine Empire disappeared early on (taken over by the Avars) and was replaced by the Constantinople Empire. The Swiss Band controls Northern Germany, and the Teutonic Order controls a sizeable portion of Finland. CK2 End - 1444: EU4 Start (shows conversion results) - 1444: EU4 Major Events: I went into EU4 wanting to colonize the major islands in the Atlantic and play the trade game/equalizer. It became clear after a few years that Scotland was going to wreck me if I didn't take them out first, so I decided to alter my strategy and take over the British Isles. During one of my early wars with Scotland, I made a critical mistake and let my ally at the time (Spain) get wrecked by Burgundy while I took care of Scotland - this resulted in a massive Central European Nation. To make matters worse, they ended up allying with some of the other major players around them, so I couldn't play diplomacy and take them down properly. I needed more manpower to hold my own against them, so I went heavy on the colonization. I'm posting a culture map as well because Spain was primarily Irish (due to my CK2 Crusade to release them). By 1821, Syria was still a massive empire in Central Asia, Burgundy controlled most of Central/Western Europe + Northern Spain, Mali became a power in their own right in West Africa, Egypt controlled most of Mediterranean Africa, and Sicily controlled most of the Aegean. Spain suffered many defeats on the Iberian Peninsula, but still controlled a large colonial empire in South America. Constantinople lost a lot of their historical lands, but managed to take advantage of the power vacuum in Eastern Europe to keep stay relevant. Surprisingly, the Swiss Band and Teutonic Order are still going strong by the end of EU4. California was controlled by the Deccan Empire/India, with most of Oceania colonized by various Asian nations. EU4 End Map - 1822: Victoria 2 Start - 1836: Victoria 2 Major Events: With my great defensive positioning, I focused early on Industrialization, took a lead, and never looked back. I lost to Communist rebels probably 20 years in, and that helped a lot with spamming factories (They lost later on though - I'm a democracy going into HOI4). My goal this play through was to contain Burgundy, and I did so fairly effectively (controlling the seas + dumping massive amounts of troops into Dunkirk worked like a charm). I returned a lot of their Spanish lands back to Spain early on, then I returned a lot of Aquitaine's lands - unfortunately Burgundy ended up adding Aquitaine to their Sphere of Influence. I didn't think I could keep winning against them due to the makeup of our allies (at the time they had Mali/Aquitaine, I had Spain, and we shared Sicily as a mutual ally, so it leaned in their favor-it did not help that two of my most powerful colonial nations in the West Indies and Irish States of America gained Great Power Status and no longer were my puppets). I attacked them in desperation to create balance in Europe, and won/released the North German Federation - I swiftly attacked the Swiss Band and Bohemia liberating the North German Federation in order to make them stronger/able to withstand Burgundy on their Western Front. While this proved successful, Burgundy had an A+ diplomatic game, and maintained alliances with Mali and a resurgent Constantinople. An event fired around 1900 in which Irish Rebels rose up in Spain and South America, calling for a unification of our kingdoms - I accepted and Spain + all of our colonies were folded into the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, it still wasn't enough to win the First Great War in 1929 (UK/Sicily/West Indies/NSF/Aquitaine v. Burgundy/Mali/Burgundian Mexico/Ajuuran(Central Africa)/Constantinople). Syria is still strong as hell, India is a force to be reckoned with, Burgundy is no longer OP (but still a threat), and Constantinople managed to make a resurgence and is a major player now. I'm pissed because Vicky ends 1/1/1936, and I just secured an alliance with Syria (they had the strongest army/I was going to get revenge for the first Great War -- Germany/Sicily couldn't hold up against two fronts). Victoria 2 End - 1936 (I am red now): HOI4 soon I guess (going to learn on the fly, I've only done the tutorial lol)
  7. Musical Chairs - a Paradox Megacampaign

    this is correct - I'm near the end of my vicky game now
  8. Musical Chairs - a Paradox Megacampaign

    This didn't go as planned - I started as Ireland and stuck with it but didn't have time to do a proper AAR. I'll grab some screenshots and summaries soon (I'm currently in the year 1906 as Ireland).
  9. War of the Planet of the Apes

    Has anyone else seen it/what did you think? I thought it was slow and the worst of the three - I came away very disappointed
