American-Mexican War OnLine is a turn-based, military, resource, and political simulation of the American-Mexican conflict of the 1840s.
American-Mexican War OnLine (AMWOL) simulates the conflict between the newly established republic of the United States of America and the fragmented state existing within the newly emancipated colony of New Spain. AMWOL is a linked game event for all CWOL iterations to give participating Players the shared experiences and comradery that leaders of the American Civil War gained as junior officers in Mexico.
AMWOL uses a hybrid software suite from NWOL and CWOL to introduce players to these game engines. The first session of AMWOL, AMWOL I, occurred during Autumn 2014. The next iteration of AMWOL is tentatively scheduled for 2016. Individuals interested in participating in AMWOL should join the Players Guild (see link below) at the Players Guild web site to monitor the schedule of programmed game events and other development news concerning AMWOL.
Civil War OnLine (CWOL) is a turn-based, military, economic, and political simulation of the American Civil War with both wargaming and roleplaying aspects.
CWOL features components for land warfare to include railroad movement and riverine operations, naval warfare, a economic module, and a module that addresses the unique elements of ACW-era foreign policy and regional domestic politics. CWOL VIII, starts in February 2015. If you are interested in playing, register at the CWOL 8 player registration page. You should also join the Players Guild (see link below) to be able to track game announcements and requirements posted at the Players Guild web site.
Individuals registering to play CWOL who have not attended a introductory training course should proceed to this site to enroll in the self-paced instruction found at the CWOL Academy.
Veterans from the previous SAS version of CWOL are encouraged to enroll in the CWOL Academy to become familiar with the revised game design.
