Hello everyone,
in the past months I have been developing an online version of Nations on my play-by-web site www.mabiweb.com and it is now released and available to play.
The site is totally free, you just have to register and create your account, and is designed for playing in your browser in asynchronous mode, not in real time.
A big thank you to the publisher Lautapelit.fi for granting permission for this online version, to the game designers, especially to Rustan Håkansson who has been very helpful and supportive, and to all the play-testers who helped debugging the game in the past couple of months.

Huge thank you to Massimo! The implementation is great, I highly recommend it. I added a link on the wiki section of the main Nations page for reference.

Thanks for the great implementation MaBi. Being able to play this game with friends over long distances is great and I can attest to how well it's been made. The play testing was practically flawless as it stood! Ohh and thanks again to Rustan and the designers for such a fun game in the first place

Now looking forward to plenty of people getting signed up so that there is a good player base to allow for lots of games (especially in my time zone - if you're in the Australian/Asian time zone, GM me for a game).

The problem I'm having is that there never seems to be anyone on to play.

If you are looking for a real-time game, sorry but I'm afraid it will never work. Otherwise just create a game and wait, it will fill up and start (for years I have been playing Gods, which is probably the least known and played online game of the universe).

I can totally understand that, but I've left a table open for hours at times with no response, sadly.

The site was just open today and the registration takes 24 hours. Give us some time, us not beta-testers!

Wait, no: you must confirm within 24 hours but the confirmation email should arrive immediately. If you don't receive it within a few minutes it was probably lost and will never arrive (it has happened to more than one user). In that case send me the username and email you want to use and I will manually create the account.

Thanks for chiming in. Indeed, I didn't receive the confirmation. I will try again.

Is there any way to chat. The post message option doesn't seem to work.

I just realized I've been playing it wrong all these years by not doing the growth phase in reverse turn order.

Probably because I never really cared. Is there any chance we can get an option for a simultaneous growth phase to speed up play?

There are certain timing events this could throw off. For example another player may want to make you lose something (if they got the chance from an event) after they see you "just" had enough to feed your people say.

In many situations it matters, you know a bit more about what your opponents are up to if you choose after. If they take resources, what can they do. If they grow, what do they have to do. Especially if some player grows with Stability it can be very useful for the others to know. It is an important part of being early in turn order.

It is a while since I last played a 5-player game, and am very happy to be part of one now on the site. 5 (and 6...) player games are probably my favourite way to play Nations.

Just adding to the chorus of folks who managed not to receive the confirmation e-mail (even checked my spam folder several times), but MaBi got me up and running after contacting him via GeekMail.

A public thanks to him for both the personal help and ability to play Nations more often! Maybe I'll even manage to get in a game with the designers...

That's the first new game there in quite some time ... congratulations!

I just opened an account at Mabi and created a 2-player game of Nations. Looking for someone to play with.

Thanks for making this, Im looking forward to trying it. The board game version is one of my favorites.

WOW, I am in the middle of playing a couple games on here and I have to say that so far it is a fantastic online version of this great game.
