I have patched together a way that multiple people can play online using a shared account on Google Drive.

Basically, I took hi-res photos of the maps, and then copied the Status Marker, Military Unit and other counters/icons from the player sheets.

The icons can be easily copied to the maps and moved around in real time, using the editable image feature in Google Drive.

This version is locked for editing publicly, but you can see what it looks like:

In addition, I created a spreadsheet in Google Drive to keep track of finances, Victory Points, and log activity.

We can use discord chat, email, skype, or our accounts with BoardGameGeek for announcements and to send private messages to do diplomacy.

If you are interested in getting a game going please direct message me or reply to this thread.
I'd like to get a 7-8 player game going ideally.

Great use of google Share features ...I have no experience of on-line play, but I wonder about the down time in other Players' Turns...considering it will need a GM to adjudicate predictably frequent differences of opinion, rules questions, etc...

HTH

One of the players will have to serve as the GM, or we can take turns with that. I think the bar is high enough with Pax Britannica, in terms of the complexity, that the kind of people who play are not going to be trying to cheat.

Its a great idea and I'd be in for it. Although I'd need to read up on the rules, because its been a long time. Although when players play will probably be largely determined by their daily schedule rather than any strategic choice.
