I was wondering if there has been any thought to doing more Chrononauts editions.
I know the game focuses on US history but what about some focusing on other areas of the world? And, for tournamets, tieing them together?
There could be a Chrononauts EU and Chrononauts Asia at the very least. Basic Chrononauts could be expanded to Chrononats NA (North America) and a South America edition could also be looked into. (I don't know if there is enough interest in Chrononauts outsde of the current fan base to make this many editions feasible at this point though).
Some of the Lynchpins could be set up to cross borders (WW1 and WW2 at the very least) where a tournament could actually have players at one table changing lynchpins that affect other tables. In otherwords, actions by North America can affect Europe or Asia.
Perhaps a set like this isn't feasible for sale, but I think it could be interesting to try and develop in any case.
To start, how do you think it would be best to break it down? North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia?
What about other divisions? Middle East, Medeteranian, Pacific Rim?
And what about crossover lynchpins? World Wars of course, but what else? And between which countries?
I think that ancient chrononaughts would be the most interesting. Bronze age or ancient Egypt that kind of thing.
I also think an "Ancient Worlds" Chrononauts would be super fun. Rome/greece/egypt would be really fun.
I've been thinking for a long time now that Ancient Rome/Ancient Greece and Middle Ages/Europe would dovetail nicely with EAC especially. A Spanish version with Europe/Spain and Latin America would also work well. Then your Uber version includes Middle Ages/Europe/Spain all the way through the Conquistadors. It moves out of the history classroom and into the foreign language and ESL classrooms. As for the interest, every time I show someone this game they love it. My sister did start using it in her classroom and I think that kind of thing does generate new players.
