If people no ahead of time that they cannot fortify, they will be much more careful about placing armies. They will be placing 3 here, 4 there, 2 over there and such. That way they can advance in more complicated fashions.

I see this idea as one that will REALLY prove who knows how to play strategically and who doesn't. Would LOVE to see it implemented.

Interesting idea. Team games will change a lot also with this as you would have to attack your partners armies to get a bonus. Think this will result in longer and more interesting team games.

For the record, I was not the first one to suggest this. I forget who was, but I remember a month or 2 ago I thought of it and before making a suggestion, I searched for it. There was another thread already started. I'm not sure who started it, or what happened to the idea. I re-thought of this the other day and started one. It's gonna be interesting.

But, they could attack away first, leaving only 1. In some situations.

It was actually a fellow Gen 1-er, Coleman, who suggested it, but he didn't use the form.

Specifics: A fourth fortification option would be added to the Start A Game choices, but it would be for No Forts

Why it is needed: There's already an option for no cards, so why not?? It would add a heck of a lot more strategy.

---------------------------------------

*for the record-this is Timminz idea*


keiths31, Timminz, Coleman or ... whoever.
It doesn't change anything: Great idea!!

Like many great ideas - simple.
And as has already been noted, this would be simple to code.

My vote is in. And counted. (There was 1. And it was "yes".)

As far as I can find reference to, it hasn't been officially recognized yet, let alone rejected.

Well then. Until someone official says otherwise, this is an open suggestion. And it appears that people like the idea, and it wouldn't take much to implement.

Bad idea. You start out with 3 men on each country. Almost all those would stay trapped, cause you could never fort them. The only way they'd ever be useful is if your opponents conquered the countries around them. If you have a no forts game, you'd have to make it unlimited forting for round 1, than no forts after that. That might work

I think that's the point. Sort of like a standing army: the armies in one country won't fight unless the battle comes close enough to affect them.

No kidding! In our test game, I dropped three territories in Australia. So now two behind my lines have 3 each.
