The world is trending towards a centralized global government, with the only effective resistance coming from a league of murderous terrorists with highly...questionable objectives, and at the same time all of humanity is being ravaged by a deadly plague of mysterious origins, while the only cure is being withheld from all but those who can afford it (read: the mega-rich) by a douchebag who happens to be the only man who knows exactly how to make it but won't share the knowledge with anyone, dooming everyone else to a painful death despite the best efforts of the world's governments and churches to buy the cure and distribute it to the needy.
That do it for you?
In one sentence. Could you explain the background for your conspiracy game....GO!
It's likely because neither of them are extreme enough for the Tea Partiers and radical evangelicals (when they don't cross over, anyway) who seem to have hijacked the GOP. Romney's position with the latter is probably even worse.
You know that's what I don't understand. Here's Huntsman an experienced diplomat, former governor with a nice track record and he's trailing behind. Actually I think he's in last place.
I watched his last performance in the CNN foreign policy debate it was pretty good. Not sure why people aren't jumping at him...maybe it's because he's a Mormon...
Though if I were an American right now. I'd probably vote for Herman Cain...oh wait!
Far from it, I'm actually leaning towards Romney or Huntsman now
Mr. Conservative. Shall I presume that you support Michele Bachmann?
Kk, no prob.
On a game-related note, Kaits is indeed retiring, so Dan will be taking over for the royalists. If you're going to reference the now-inactive king, be sure to reference his regent too
Celsius backed out. I'll take over Tennessee and balance the game
Yeah, while I wouldn't really mind seeing a 5:6 or 4:5 fight since the numerical disadvantage for one party isn't gamebreaking, I'd still prefer to see both sides matched evenly, and stuff like 5:3 odds or worse is just flatly unfair. That and practically speaking, the old WEF-ACW was really 3:3 since you, MMM and Fred were the only Confed players to have ever actually fought - Gunny and Amaz did nothing in that war, and I trust you remember how Cels's stint as a Southern agent ended
Oh man. Being Confeds with CJ was going to be fun. But I'll think about it.
