Number of players

Post by Flanker79 on Tue Jun 21, 2011 12:16 pm

Hi All

I’m new and just curios;

When games are described as having “lots of players” Game 8 for example, what sort of numbers are we talking about?

10?
100?
1000?

Thanks

JP

Its basically one player per position, and on the whole one position equals one nation. There are some minor positions (eg pirates, Jacobites) that can be taken but if you work on the basis of one nation per player it will give you a feel for the fact that at full capacity you are looking at what ? 30-40 players.

The game world can work really well with probably as few as 10 players if the major positions are taken, but I would suspect an average number is around 15-20, slightly higher for the newer games.

I dont know at what level of players it becomes un-feasible for Richard to continue running.
