Ysk has also now suggested Solium Infernum here.

I can confirm that this is a great game (whether single player or mp, though I haven't personally played mp -- I collated a write-up for it from Rock Paper Shotgun years ago). I don't quite know where players would get it now if you don't have it already tho...
FIRE IN THE GROGS TOO -- a four-player full team mp of GMT's Vietnam War boardgame Fire in the Lake, recreated in TTS.

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

Solium Infernum is still up for sale at their site: www.crypticcomet.com for only 15 bucks.

So far it seems we would have 3 players for Civ 6, 2 for Dominions and a inquiry about AoW 3. :)

I my effort to try to setup Dominions and Civ games recently which petered out before we could get started I would like to propose this poll because I am feeling the PBem vibe.

So drop your vote if you want to start playing any of the above games and lets see if we can start something up!
You definitely seem to be in the mood for a PBEM game of some sort. O0 I'm not very good at it (haven't even managed to finish a game yet) but I'd like to give Civ 6 PBEM a try.

That's a great thing to look forward to! :)
I've got at least another 25 years to go.

But next April will be the month my youngest will start elementary school. Ahhhh the free time I'll get back already!  :smitten:

Ohhh yer in for a hurting then Ysk. What time you may get back from directly watching the kids will quickly be eaten up shuttling them between practices, social events, school / church / community activities and etc.
Insert witty comment here.

Yes of course, but that’s all afternoon chores! I’ll have 09:00 till 13:30 on my days off to be planned and used by none other than me! :D

I had some fun playing Gary Grigsby's World at War: A World Divided game by PBEM a while back.  That game's a bit of a monster to get into, and the UI is God-awful given the complexity of the game, but it's quite enjoyable after you get past the, "Oh, I didn't mean to invite Russia to join WW I in 1939" factor!

I've only once tried PBEM with Commander Europe at War and GGWAW is probably the only game I'd now think about trying PBEM with again. Why - I can't really commit to more than a couple of turns a week and with there only being c25 turns (less more likely as one side gets the upper hand and wins) in GGWAW I can see the probability of finishing a game and even turning round and having a rematch.
