1 6/1/2019 11:09:00 AM Start France Message I opened a new game, want to play the Early War scenario, which starts with a less crowded map than the Annus Mirabilis scenario and is better for learning the game. In fact I remember that I prefer this scenario over the regular scenario starting in 1757.
We play with all the optionals I propose, they tent to mitigate huge swings of fortunes a bit

Let's give it a go. I don't remember much else about this game, except that I liked it very much.
