The next game I'm working on is a Shakespeare game. Players will play as an impressario in the theatre world. The goal is to dominate the London stage by having the best actors, playwrights, play scripts, theatres, and etc.

The computer version of this game will be multi-player, but I need to test a lot of things out, so it will be more efficient for me to test this with only 1 human player. If this goes smoothly, then I'll do a multiplayer version later if I think further playtesting needs to be done.

If you're interested in this playtest, then take the poll.

I'm going to start this playtest next week. I'm going to let both @Rodja and @ConservativeElector2 playtest. You'll have to abide by the 24 hours rule. If any of you break the rule three times, you'll be kicked out of the playtest. I gotta be firm on this. The more active you can be, the better because I'll have limited time, while also needing this playtest to go from beginning to end as fast as possible. 

We won't have any CPU playing companies, so it's just going to be the two of you competing to dominate the London stage. I think, rather than starting in the 1570s, we will start in 1588 and play until Queen Elizabeth I dies.

If either of you think you have to backout of this playtest, let me know as soon as possible.
