There are also the 'Sahara' and 'Wall of Ice' variants, which have similar concepts.

Well you would know about Wall of Ice, wouldn't you.

Well you would know about Wall of Ice, wouldn't you.


Well, yes, I would. :lol: It was an amusing concept, but gimmicky and complicated, as were some of my other earlier variants. I design simpler and more historically accurate variants now.

Not at this point. I am just starting up a game.

If the PDO powers that be let me, maybe I will run a game of the next version (waiting for the current playtest to finish up--I wil be making some changes) of Known World 901 here.

Climate shift possibility is determined by a set number based on the real-life probability of things (balanced by a game perspective). Extra "green" are credits which carryover, and effect the next set of climate orders. At points where a natural feedback cycle happens (i.e. global warming/cooling becomes harder to stop) I will increase the ciritical numbers. So it might start out at 5 SCs and the first feedback cycle would make it 8.

Climate adjustment will happen in between the fall-winter orders. Whether or not the change is delayed is determined by the LAST set of build orders. So a time line:
Spring 2000- normal
Fall 2000- normal
Winter 2000- first set of "go green" orders submitted
Spring 2010- normal
Fall 2010- normal
Fall-Winter 2020- first possible climate shift occurs
Winter 2020- second set of "go green" orders submitted
Spring 2030- normal
Fall 2030- normal
Fall-Winter 2030- second possible climate shift occurs
etc.

Does this make sense?

The winner is the player to control more than half of the remaining SCs during the build phase. EXCEPTION: The loss of SCs and resulting lowering of required to win SCs cannot be the factor that causes you to win. If Germany controls 14 SCs and the climate shifts to lower the worldwide number to 27 he does NOT win. In this situation Germany would have to control the majority of SCs into the next build phase in order to win.


And you submit "green" orders as part of your winter adjustment.
