In the spirit of the Medieval: Total War 2 Cooperative Campaign, I thought it might be neat to run a cooperative game of Europa Universalis III in which we chose a country to play, a year to start from, and proceed to take turns building our empire, turning the reigns over to a new player each time our monarch dies. Considering how variable that can be, it may be easier to trade off every 25 years of play or somesuch… but regardless, that game supports so many different styles of play, I think it’d be neat to see what a whole posse of experienced players could do with it.
I thought it might be especially neat to start with a smaller nation, since a large number of players might quickly get tired of ripping through the world with one of the high-powered countries. (I know from experience, for instance, that playing Burgundy with the explicit goal of conquering France and Britain can be incredible fun. Evne if Burgundy does start out as a pretty darn powerful nation.)
So… any takers?
