I've found the 5 player or fewer variants a little simplistic, a little too much like playing a different kind of game. The diplomatic aspect is over more quickly, because initial alliance structures change the fundamental strategic outlook of the game very quickly.

More players mean more variables, which I generally think is more interesting.

Also, I find the idea of creating new countries as minors (like an independent Alaska) very interesting.

I agree with all of the various proposals for 6, 7 or 8 player versions

5 players is not sufficient, IMHO

I say 7 is the obvious choice. So lets get on with it. Or lets put it to a vote?

Sorry Custer, I'm a bit swamped with another game site at the moment. Once I clear that I may get some time to get back and have a look at this.

Thanks Dipsy. If I knew how to post a survey like "should WITA have 6.7. or 8 players" I'd post it. But alas, I haven't a clue.

:(

Stone tablets and chisels,

And what would this wondrous new variant be called? Can it be something a little less bland than Heptarchy in the Americas?
