Hello guys,

For those of you who have played, I was wondering "where is the sweet spot" regarding the number of players? How many players provides for the "best game"? Is it better with more guys or fewer?

Thanks

Hard to say. The diplomatic aspect gets more interesting the more players you have, of course, but with four or five players some of the non-Assyrian players may end up with little to do for long stretches.

OK. I have ordered it, but not gotten it yet. How is it playing with these smaller powers? Would you recommend 3? 4? 5?

Any of them works (well, works until you find out you've been playing some important rule wrong for the past three hours), but with more than three downtime can get pretty bad.

It would probably be a very good idea to, unlike us, start out with the shorter scenarios rather than the full campaign game.

Hmmm. Well, we'll play by PBEM anyway. Is taht doable? We've been burned on screwed up rules before, so that's ok.

Thanks for the info.

Never played multiplayer PBEM anything, so no idea what works best there.
