I'm looking for a World War 1 game similar to The Napoleonic Wars board game - or really any multiplayer (4 and up) WWI game.

I'm also trying to find some nice games that are similar to the Napoleonic Wars with alliances that can shift during gameplay in a war game theme.

About the only thing I can think of is...(quake in FEAR!) Diplomacy.

In fact I can think of very few WW1 games at this scale, and none at this level of simplicity.

At Bottoscon last November, there was a fellow from Metro Seattle Gamers (Steven?) who was demo-ing a CDG WWI game that was exactly what you are looking for. It was still in development. Unfortunately, don't remember the name of the game or who's developing it.

Really the main goal is the multiplayer aspect. My god I don't know how they can sell so many 2 player war games.

You can try finding Fatal Alliances II. Of course you also need to secure a 4th edition copy of World in Flames to make it work.

No one said this hobby would be easy, or cheap.
