I think the free version of Neuroshima is good. Depends how much you play it - there are some very interesting factions to be bought in the full game. I bought all as they are only about 60p each. Armies such as Neojungle and Dancer certainly add a lot of interest to the game.

No better for me - still very slow (18 seconds from clicking on a thread to being able to read it). No problem with any other site.

I will definitely get PoE eventually. Got fed up trying to remember how to install BG with all the mods from PC to PC. So many games to play. I'm still trying to learn Crusader Kings 2 (may take me a few years). I want to try a few other AGEOD games as well. Sovereignty: Crown of Kings along with a ...

One of the military options, "Issue a Scalp Bounty", says "Offer rewards for prisoners and ships". What exactly does this mean in terms of the game? I certainly don't remember any text for this event that mentions ships? I think the event makes it more likely that certain locked tribes with a leanin...

I just bought Crusader Kings II and Civ 5. Now there is another game I want and won't find the time to play. Thanks Philippe. First I need to give one last stab at getting the Barbarians to attack in AJE :)

Thanks for the warning - maybe too late as I demanded 50 goods a year from them last night :blink: Another P.S.

King of Dragon Pass

Just got this unique game for Android. I think it worth a mention as there is nothing else like it and it works so well on a tablet - somewhat surprising as it was originally released in 1999. I always have problems with tablet wargames or RPGs as the interface rarely seems to work well. This one do...

To any treasure hunters out there this is a bit like an X marks the spot pirate map. 35 years ago myself and a friend used our metal detectors to find 15 Roman silver coins (denarii) about 200 meters to the west of this villa (up the hill, in and around the woods).

Hi Aktivist, this is automatically handled by the game. You just specify what unit picture you want and the army picture of the same name is found when the army picture needs to be displayed (but maybe I don't understand your question fully)?
