This looks like a game with some possibilities. Appears to have PBEM feature.

I've mucked around with Crown of Glory,and up to this point, haven't been immensely impressed with it.

One thing that I am curious about, is that CoG was designed to reflect Europe in the Napoleonic era, and so you have multiple nation states, while here, you just have the two. It would cause you to lose a fair bit of the "meat" of the game, and the tactical system is not that good (a long step back from the HPS games... kind of a middlin point between the system in Imperialism 2 and JT's games)

Maybe Hank and Notso could use this as a strategic engine for their Fight the War game they were running.

Jeez, It looks like someone has been reading Larry and Hank's emails. From a Grand Strategic perspective, it seems to factor in all the elements of FTW, and then some.

It is certainly worth taking a look at. It may work real well for a multi complete full war game like FTW.
