- Westfalen is a game is a turn based strategy game for 19 human players. Each human player has his own nation to rule. Westfalen consists of a user client program and an independent server program. The user client program is for the users (players). The client program allows the users to give orders for the game and send Messages to the other players.
The game is simple in game play in order to allow all players to take part in the game. In addition, the game is challenging for players who are good at strategy games. You can change the Relationships of your nation towards other Nations. You can create alliances or declare wars against enemy Nations.
Current Nations in the game are: Austria, Brandenburg, Crimea khanate, Denmark, England, France, Mamelukes, Morocco, Naples, Netherlands, Ottoman empire, Papal states, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saxony, Spain, Sweden and Transylvania.
Each nation is slightly different to play. In addition to the difference in location and size on the map, the cost to build armies and fleets is slightly different for each nation.
Players must register an account in order to play the game with the client program. After successful registration, a player can join a game of Westfalen to play a nation of his choice. New game will always start when there are 19 different players available for a new game of Westfalen.
When a player plays the game, he will receive the turns by using the client program. The client program connects to the server and Downloads the information about the game turn from the independent server program. Then he gives orders to his nation, the player moves the armies and the fleets, recruits armies and builds ships. In addition, a player can send Messages to the other players within the game.
When the orders are ready, the player must then send the orders to the server before the processing time of the turn. The server will process the orders given by players and produce new turns for the players based on the events that occur during the turn. Even though this game is turn based, each player sends orders prior to the processing and the server will process the orders at the same time during the process time.
In order to play the game, you need an Internet connection that we do not provide for you. You need to have a connection to the Internet in order to receive your turn reports and Messages from other players or to send orders for the next turn. In addition, if you Join a new game with the client, the client program must be able to connect to the server with the use of your Internet connection. However, you do not need to have the Internet connection open when you are just looking at your turns or giving the orders to the units. In short, when you receive something from the server or send orders to the server, you need to have the Internet connection open.
The server program of Westfalen will process the orders three times per week. At the current level the turns are processed either on:
Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Each game will be process on different times, this is done because it takes some time to process the gameīs orders. For example, Server migh process the game X on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, at the 20.00, and the game Y might processed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the 21.00. (Finnish local time). You will be informed about these times when the game starts. (and on the game itself, when you start the game, it will be on "list of notes").
Each player will receive a notification about the process date for that gameīs turn when he starts to give orders for the turn. If the process date has already passed, the player must connect to the server to obtain new information for the next turn.
We estimate that one game of Westfalen will take around 3 to 5 months to play (40 - 60 turns) if you survive... if you donīt your game might end in few weeks. It depends of you, your allies and especiality, your enemies.
