Once i've recieved my copy of AOM i'm available for the odd session, but i'm not around as often as i used to be. I think i might also want to spend some time getting the hang of AOM before going for the DG - just to familarize myself with its differences over CTP2.
Sounds like a good idea overall though
'The very basis of the liberal idea – the belief of individual freedom is what causes the chaos' - William Kristol, son of the founder of neo-conservitivism, talking about neo-con ideology and its agenda for you.info here. prove me wrong.
Bush's Republican=Neo-con for all intent and purpose. be afraid.
What Tamerlin said about sums it up, "the Succession Game is IMO a more suitable format for CtP2 and its community". Although if by some miracle there does happen to be enough people, ill be around as a citizen.
I dont think 7 is enough for a DG, or anywhere near. In the last game there were at least 8 solid posters for government positions, then quite a few citizens.
Perhaps you could have some kind of DG/SG, with each person assigned a position and decides on each part of government, if more than 2 other players disagree there is a vote or something, and probably each person takes turns to play the game every 10-20 turns, but you have to follow the orders, rahter than going your own way in a standard SG.
