Lol, my AAR would be hilarious.

Comarde MOO sits at his desks in confusion. He grabs his budget and calculator as an aid pours a glass of vodka.

"Hmm, it seems like we spent 20 monies to send envelopes to the Right Wing? What the fuck does that mean?"

After arbitrarily setting a random budget and finishing his glass of Vodka Comrade MOO stares at the globe. His aid pours him another glass.

"Let's send weapons to Libya. Let's send weapons to Zimbabwe. What is this even doing? Where are we getting these weapons from?"

Finally MOO grabs the bottle and begins chugging from it. He randomly decides to invest in some technologies and reforms. Wooh.

Seriously though, I recommend getting it. It costs less than an ok beer at a bar.

Yo, random question.

Has anyone actually played the BOP game for PC?

I don't know if anyone is a fan of the Dominions series, but I've been playing since Dominions 2 and it's one of my favorite series. I put a lot of time into the latest one already. It's a great game with a small, yet dedicated following.

It's a fairly complex grand strategy game but I love the setting. Basically, you play as a "Pretender God" and are a magical being of great power trying to ascend to godhood. You also lead a nation, and the nation can build armies and stuff. It has a very high fantasy setting. Dragons, zombies, magical ethereal beings, etc. I love the lore in the game, each nation feels different and has a great backstory.

It reminds me of the God games we've played on this forum in the past. I highly recommend to anyone who doesn't mind poor graphics but deep strategy!

I'm a new fan of dominions. A buddy of mine got me into 4 but I didn't really enjoy it. I'm loving 5, though, for some reason.

Hit me up if you wanna do a blitz or PBEM.

The games ever since 2 are fairly the same, mechanically and graphically.

I like that they don't reinvent themselves every new installment (Looking at you, Civilization series)
