Nick,

Are you warming up to Glenn in hopes that he makes the 6th Colonial Power Greece? You know that's not historically accurate! LOL

However, after you have Portugal - Spain - Holland - England - France... what nation historically was colonizing the world? No other nations had the clout to sail that far to the new world. Not even Italy as all their explorers worked for other nations!

What's that sixth - purple colonial power going to be then??? The only other growing power of the era was the Ottoman/Muslim world... but they stayed pretty much close to home. They knew they had enough oil and warm weather that you couldn't beat it!

Come on Glenn... give it up... what's the sixth Colonial Power... give it up dude!!! We haven't had any expansion hints in a while now!!! Keep us interested as June-July is a ways off still!

The Condor

P.S.: I'd be alright with Greece though!

How about the Norse? They did some exploring.

I am good with any nation, but ya... lets hear what it will be already! What nation goes with the colour purple? d10-6

Norse... a few others online were pushing them. However - their exploration was well before the colonial era. You'd have to really do some makeshift ability since they were a non-factor in the age of exploration.

And purple ... it's not the best yardstick to choose the nation by in my book.

Purple

Could be The Kingdom of Sweden or the Danes,

Could even be Venice

However intriguingly other Choices would be Russia (remember Alaska everyone?)

Or Imperial China (if they hadn't shut down the treasure fleets)

The Kingdom of Denmark would be a candidate for a wannabe colonial power. With virgin islands and Greenland in the new world. Trankebar (india), and Goldcoast in afrika. With both slave and spice trade, and one of the biggest euoropean fleets until the napoleon wars, my national pride calls for making the case for the Denmark, as the wannabe colonial power.

Btw looking at greenland you could consider Denmark one of the countries thats still is big on colonies.

The more I think of it, I hope Glenn has created a decent sixth colonial power for the game's sake. When you look at the historical account after the big 5 it's hard to really find another that measures up.

I guess we will just have to wait as to see who these "purple people eaters" are going to be. Since they're purple, they do fit the theme of being the Minnesota Vikings! Maybe it is going to be the Norsemen after all?

Since you're gaming to create the direction of the new world it would be more interesting though to see a non-European power provided. Afterall, it's a chance to re-write history.

Come on Glenn... spill it... we'd like some hype here!!!

Hallo Mike!!
I don't think it would be Greece the 6th nation because it isn't
historical fair!!
I have to agree with other players that Sweden or even Russia are more eligible considering that they had try to colonise America in the past ages...

If we really want somewhat historical accuracy,
Spain must have the initiative move.
There was a time that spaniards had explored and had already start
to colonised the new continent from Florida to Peru...
I think that Spain's player must has some special benefits.
