Some people have commented that it would be fun to play the smaller powers in the WWBP Real Forces game if the other players weren't playing the superpowers. In this game, all players choose one of these smaller countries to play. Most of the forces of the super powers are on the map, they are just "minor countries" subject to popularity indexes and so forth. (In the regular "Real Forces" game, some spaces have huge numbers of armies and/or missiles. For purposes of this game, the minor spaces (i.e. all not-players) have a max of 25 army and 2 missiles.)
Also, there are some limitations on the final alliances. The game doesn't end until there are no more than three players left (two if there are two European powers - for this purpose Canada counts as a European power.) Also the remaining two or three players have to have each other declared ally. However, you will have to tell us when this condition is fulfilled. Our regular program will wait to declare a winner until there is only one player left.
The turn fee is $5 per turn. If you'd like to try this variant, ask for "Lesser forces WWBP" and pick several choices from the following list:
