This is an offshoot of my previous recent post.
I've an opportunity for some of my students to be able to do weekly check-in period and it would be great to run something akin to a play-by-email game set in the ancient world. I've been running through searches on BGG but haven't found anything that really hits what I need:
Ancient world theme.
Simple order/action point/worker placement/etc. type of game turn. The students would just distribute resources and/or orders on a sheet of paper to hand into me. Much like a PBEM.
Simultaneous resolution of actions. I'd get all the sheets each week and be able to process all of the actions relatively quickly with logical rules for conflicts.
Co-operative or multiplayer solitaire style gameplay. The most classic type of game like what I'm describing above would be Diplomacy, however I work at a therapeutic school and the confrontational and backstabbing elements would not work well with my students. It would be more about building up something and perhaps there is a little bit of a race to see who gets a resource, but does not present any real setbacks for the players.
It's kind of a tall order, is there anything like this?
