  1. Yeah, I think for decent/fluid game-play, it's best not to extend past PMI: Canada's number of parties. Or, have PMI: UK's number of seats, but not number of parties.

    PMI: UK is a great game, but it's unavoidable for it to be on the slower side (I even have a pretty good processor) with the sheer number of candidates and parties needed for the realism PMI/F games are known for.

  2. Hi, I'm not sure if I can find a definite answer anywhere else, so I'll ask here. Is there a consistent period of time in between updates for PM Canada 2015? Or are they released occasionally with no specific pattern.

    We have another thread for PMI Canada, but I think updates are released on a "when they're done" basis (like with all 270soft products).

    The game was advertised as having scenarios dating back to 1997, so I imagine we will get all of them at some point, whenever that is.

    It seems like the hayday of scenario making has passed somewhat, especially compared to the large community of scenario makers that there was for President Forever 2008. There would be something fun about playing in the 40s trying to defeat a Mackenzie King Government.

  3. I actually had a past attempt at a Canadian alternate scenario where the interpretation of the phrase in the original BNA 1867 "and all British Dominions in North America will eventually become part of British North America," was pressed by the Mulroney Government with the British Commonwealth Office, leading to the annexation of Bermuda, Montserrat, the British Virgin Islands, the Turks and Caicos Islands, and the Cayman Islands in the early 1990's. Thus, I can well appreciate this idea and it's possibilities. However, my map drawing skills aren't the best (the above mentioned scenario just used five dots in the corner to represent the new area), though I COULD take a crack at it, but we warned ahead of time of my limited drawing skill.

    Hey, thanks for replying.

    If you want to take a stab at it, then go right ahead, that would be great.

    I know there are some really good map makers on this board (I've seen super intricate maps in other scenarios), and I hope I can draw them out to this thread too.

  4. How will this game (at least the 2015 scenario) cover this election's unprecedented tactic (well, it was present in 2011 too, I guess) by the Conservatives that ALL real campaigning is done by Harper, a few other select Cabinet members, and nation-wide advertising, and all rank-and-file candidates in the party (the vast majority of them) are essentially told to avoid all debates and questions, shut-up publicly, and effectively not campaign themselves?

    I wonder why he wants them to hush up? Weird, isn't it?

  5. Thought it might be useful to have one of these.

    It actually looks pretty good to me (I've only played one campaign so far, though). Really did a bang up job on this one, Anthony, and I can't help myself from saying that this or the UK 2015 game is your best yet. Kudos to you.

    I've noticed that the Canadian map doesn't lend it's self to being the most pretty to look at when it comes to something like this (compared to the UK and the US), but still, it looks fantastic. Looking forward to the updates, and, of course, the past campaigns. :)

    Cheers.
