Thx a lot for this! Starting my first game (3 players) and everything seems to be very intuitive (well I need to refresh my rules, that's another problem).

One important feature missing on the website: a big thumb up to developper

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

I actually enjoy games where it feels like the designer is going out of their way to just slap you in the face.

Did you also design Indonesia? That one doesn't. In that one, it's the other players that swipe at me.

Thanks

For the big thumb up on the website, it might be a donation button instead if the hosting costs become too high arrrh

Anyway it was a pleasure to develop such a site, because now we can enjoy this wonderful game at high doses

If i had more than one life, it would have been already done, and roads and boats as well !
For the moment, i'll finish antiquity as cleanly as i can, then we'll see :)

Honestly with the auctions it might not be suited to online play, although perhaps a 'max bid' would be all right for the mergers...

I know, but there is only one "long" phase per turn, and not each turn, so it could be thinkable.
And the game is a bit too long to my standards (and my friends'), so having an online version would be great !

Era A just seems so friendly, and then you get to Era B and woooah, and then Era C and 'Let's just end this!!'

I know know how the auctions are in that game but I've played many a games of Amun-Re on www.spielbyweb.com in the past (looks like they had to pull the game) and the auction is a major mechanic of that game and it wasn't a problem

Hi! How are you?!?
mbmbmbmbmb
As someone who has done this exact type of programming over at www.spielbyweb.com you have done a nice job here. There are little bits to polish and what not, but nice work. Fantastic game for this format.

And in fact, for some reason the full domain name does not work. Use the IP every time (bookmark it) and that is it!

Oh! And use Chrome or Firefox, not IE. The site does not support it (I found it the hard way!)

Until the domain name is working, you should be able to use this:

Toooooof, one comment.

It might be good to pop up a warning on the first turn if a player is overusing wood in the city-building phase. You do something similar if a player doesn't man buildings, but one of the players in our all-newbs game managed to block himself by building six city buildings. I'm sure it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I'll bet no player will make that mistake twice, but for new players it's easy to overlook the rule that building a woodcutter takes 1 wood in a later phase.

Email notification would be awesome as well, hopefully you get a chance to make that happen.

And no workers going to the fields? This is achievement!

It's the first time I hear the 6-wood-buildings-during-first-turn thing. I might add a check later, but this happens very rarely I suppose. And not twice . For the moment, just resign the broken games and start new ones.

For the email, I agree, that'd be great. It takes a lot of time (and linked to the not-working-url). I prefer to spend my time on bug fixing and improvements at the moment (because this makes things move). I intend to have an email function at the end.

Well, we were all new. I agree, nobody will do that twice.

You said above you were working on email notifications, just wanted to reinforce that it would be great for players. Thanks for the work you've done, and we can be patient until it happens.

Yes, I had troubles with my provider. I hope it's solved now, because i can't do anything for this.
Please let me know if you can't access the site from now.
Thanks :)

Hey, thanks for putting this up. If not for that, I might have bought it, and I think I've found a splotter title I don't like.

Yes, it's down again.
Not a provider issue this time, the machine itself is unreachable. I'll have to check. I'll try to find the time before the end of the week.

I'll post here once it's fixed.
