you may have noticed that one can pick up any save and switch the country you play.
For a succession game I propose the following:
* Start as a lowly earl in Ireland.
* After ten years the next player may select a different earl, count or duke in Ireland (starting from the lowest available),
and play the next ten years.
So for clarity, this could mean we play:
1066 - 1080: Earl Ruardri of Tyrconnnel
1080 - 1090: Earl Conchobar of Kiladare
1090 - 1100: Earl Tadg of Desmond
PS. This is also the way for the very good players to keep single player mighty interesting, and challenging.
This way you know your opponents extremely well..
This I call the Play Ten And Switch (PTAS) type of game.
So in the above I am talking about a PTAS Succession game.
