    Overwhelming Force has lost many members to attrition and real-life pressures.

    We have many new members and wish to "test-drive" our lineup.

    We are accepting challenges for 5-on-5 matches.

    Leader, Overwhelming Force (OWF)

    In 1982, back in the days of dial-up, I created a website called BUSHIDO BBS, and on that site I created a game known as "Battle for North America" or BNA. It was a geopolitical game, very similar to Supremacy1914, except that it was essentially play-by-mail (or in this case, message). Being dial-up, only one player could be on at a time, players messaged me as to their move for that turn, I calculated the results, including battles using a 10-sided-die to determine odds, and posted the results the next morning, We had up to 30 players from all over the USA (some of whom I later learned were hacking their way in through other's phone numbers). The game ran until July of 1987 when outside circumstances forced me to take it down. I did investigate several times in the interim the feasibility of automating the game to run on a www. website, but other things always seemed to take priority...BUSHIDO BBS may have been the forerunner of games such as Supremacy....

    Alliances used to be able to challenge each other

    I cannot find a mechanism to do so these days....

    Please explain how....

    I keep responding to an invitation to join, I look for games and find none, then I am dropped for non-participation.

    I play regular Supremacy games, but have yet to find a FLP game

    Am I the only one?
