Map Games are collaborative althistory games in which a starting map is posted and players take turns making changes to the map and posting alternate history events.

General Guidelines

For instructions on Map Games, consult the Map Game Oversight Committee. Make sure you don't create a map game without proposing it to the committee first.

Active Map Games

  • Cross & Crescent - Starting in 1200, this map game focuses on the religious wars of the time, and is unique as the players control characters within the game rather than nations.
  • Principia Moderni IV - Popular sequel to the first three Principia Moderni map games. Begins in 1400, near the approximate beginning of the modern era.

Finished Games

Games end once they reach the present year or an earlier predetermined ending. These games have reached that point:

  • Map Game - The first Map Game. It ended because of year limits (up to 1 June 2010 on this wiki). It is also notable for at one point being more active than Talk:1983: Doomsday and having one of its maps used by Wikia to advertise this wiki. Founded by Baconton.
  • Rebirth of the World Map Game - Finally got to 2010.
  • Atlantic Islands - The first map game to be used specifically for a timeline, all of the islands were colonized.
  • Axis vs Allies Revised - Reached an agreed endpoint between the last two players.
  • No Nukes - Reached the present year (2012)
  • Hot Cold War - Game about World War 3 but ended in ASB.
  • Principia Moderni - Worldwide map game of military, economy, and exploration.
  • Night of the Living Alternate History - Original map game created by Mscoree. On October 1, 1968 George A. Romero released the film, Night of the Living Dead. Today it is viewed as the beginning of Zombies on the big screen, but what if that’s not all it inspired? Noted as being one of the most popular map games ever created.
  • Principia Moderni III - Popular sequel to the first two Principia Moderni map games. Begins in 1400, near the approximate beginning of the modern era. Currently the longest-running map game record-holder. Reached the time of its ending, 2015.

Defunct Games

For the most part, games are marked defunct due to inactivity, if you feel like continuing a defunct map game feel free as long as it is not one of the few that have finished. This list is incomplete.
