Bob Hellemon has run a version of 1900 Alternatives for several years. The game is managed online through Dropbox and Excel (2007-current). Turns are weekly including posted results. This is an economics oriented wargame with the flavor of a 1900 era in technology. Three player continents in a large world with many unclaimed island/continents. The game includes weekly map updates, a newletter, and a very friendly turnsheet automated to handle your economic plans and military movements for GM review. Players are supportive in learning the game play and the GM is online several times a week. The game is currently in turn 17 and there is a rare opening. The game is open ended with updates to allow for new ideas and rules. There is a wiki site as well. Contact GM for further information.
