Anybody interested in a 6 hour game of the founding of America, based on the mechanics of Republic of Rome? Founding Fathersis a massive competitive cooperative game of the early years of our country. It is a dense negotiation game, and it is awesome!

I would be happy to bring a copy & teach the game (which is surprisingly elegant and unfiddly for so beastly a game) if I know there is interest.

I'd likely play -- I have played in real life a few times and 22 times on yucata.

Wait -- that is a different game. I'm less sure.

I'm open to the idea, though won't be making commitments this early. I got in a couple of 18xx on the 2016 cruise, so longish games shouldn't be a problem.

I might be interested. I'm curious how it is both cooperative and competitive?

Much like Republic of Rome, we must all work together to make sure that America succeeds. If the Nation fails, we all lose. However, at the end of the game, there will only be one winner. I love the sense of how much am I willing to cooperate, and how much can I extort the leader (who has a vested interest in the game continuing..)

It's a great negotiation game.

Thanks for the description-it's not my kind of game, unfortunately. But it is my husband's. He replied already.
