Excuse me, it's too soon to start whining for a pre-prequel about the aforementioned Dutch War?

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

I thought about, would be good to have a game where Conde and Turenne can show their mettle. Map though would have to much smaller and focused on Netherlands and Alsace.

YES!

Marlborough, Luxembourg and Turenne, what other series of games could boast such a team of generals?

A smaller and more detailed map of Alsace and a card about the opening of the dykes

Then, of cours, you could add a fourth installment containing a mini-game on the war of devolution and a political system to link them all..

Just saying...

I like it. Ever thought of designing such a game?

Gittes,

I tinkered for a while with a design on the four wars of 'ol Louis, a political/military four player cdg, it went down in flames briefly after take off

I'm really in awe of people that could design and implement game mechanics that actually works, I simply doesn't have the skill for the task

So, thanks for your work, you'll have a customer here, alas not a colleague

Well Carlo, if you want I can take what you have and hammer it into something that works. If I do you will get a co-designer credit.

Otherwise, I am not likely to craft something. I can improve on a design, however incomplete, but I don't quite have the passion to start from scratch.

I have a prototype ready. For now check Consimworld topics (No Peace Without Spain, Nine Year War)for details. When I have a bit more time, I'll try to post so more details here.
