Hears of Iron 3 – Italian 3 way!?
I recently picked up Hearts of Iron III on Steam for a good price and ever since then I’ve been pondering how to best play it multiplayer. A couple of buddies and I have considered an Axis game, or all starting in South America or something, but I’ve come up with a better plan: We all play as Italy.
Yes, you can have multiple people controlling the same country! So my plan is to have one person be the guy in charge of politics and production and the other two in charge of the Army and Navy respectively.
I think the level of angry in-fighting, complaining and general screaming at each other over Skype could very well provide an accurate simulation of Italian politics.
If you like this idea, let me know, and we’ll work something out in the not-too-distant future.
