Is anybody out there interested in a new confederation game? There are 6 players in this game format, and everybody controls 2 kingdoms.

These games are steel, with no communications.

This is a good way to learn more about the game, and it is pretty fun as well! I've had a blast. In a way, it is like a team game, except that you are the team!
The one that finished last week somehow turned into a 48 hour game.  With two positions I found it more stressful than I would have liked.
Also poor Lord Thanatos started with his kingdoms divided.  Then he got attacked by a second player early on and dropped.  The game was unbalanced from there on.  
I wonder if there is a way to assure each position has two adjacent kingdoms?
Maybe pair them before the draft?

I'll pass on playing this time.

Pair befor draft is the only way..  I backed out of that one for that very reason Smile
Yep. One person pretty certain to be screwed. Smile
Since there is some disfavor for this mode, I will close this thread and start a new game.

I'm not against it, I just think the concept of pairing regions should be done.

if you get crown, you get darkover. Krynn? Zanthia. Zamora? You are so fortunate you really don't need anything else, but can have The Sword Coast. Pellinor and Triumvia. Mythgar and Untamed. Crown and Nyvaria.
I was not against it either.  I just did not like 48 hours.  Make these 72 as it's as time demanding as three normal games.
I also agree with Painted.  Gosh did I really say that?
The regions need to be paired.  Not Crown and Nyvaria though!  They go together as well as peanut butter and marmalade which is to say not at all!
Good. So all we need are 6 players. I suppose that whatever pair is selected by a player is done in random order to make everything fair?

That would be a good idea. Thanks. I do love this game format.

My fault. I meant Diamond and Nyvaria.

So I'd propose these pairings:
1) Crown/Darkover
2) Krynn/Zanthia
3) Zamora/Sword
4) Mythgar/Untamed
5) Triumvia/Pellinor
6) Diamond/Nyvaria

I'd be down for this if I had a game or two wind up in time.
Thanks Painted for doing this.
