I suffered through about an hour last night as a man without a country.
Congratulations. We fight hard to get into that position.
The game is very swirly tho. Countries would set out as allies and then attack each other. It was a very crazy game.
This normal & one of the delights of Imperial.
At 5 hours tho, it left a bad taste in the other gamers mouths...
Tell them that Imperial is an investment game & not a war-game. When played as a war-game, it is very long. When played as an investment game it isn't long. No changes are required.
