Default Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis IV

I did a search and found nothing on these games, and that made me sad

Both from the same (Swedish) company and occupying different spans of history. You can convert a saved game of CK2 into EU4 and continue your empire.

I have only played the demo of CK2, but steam wanted too much for the pack at the moment, so I picked up EU4. Pure awesomeness and tonnes of mods available (for both games).

Some juicy trailers;





Anyone else playing?

I've put in 55 hrs on EU3 and only 3 hrs on CK2 - i do prefer EU over CK2 but i havent figured all of the mechanics of CK2 out. Both fantastic strategy games, but i think that both need to have serious gaming sessions to make the most of them - something i dont have the time for at the moment.

Agreed very much on the serious gaming sessions. I spent 12 hours in one session on EU4's release day... ...but playing as the Ottoman Empire I finally kicked the Mamluks where it hurts

I've been playing CK2 and put in some hours. Still feel like I'm only half way to understanding what I should be doing. Still great fun.

yeah, I'm back to CK2 a second time, and loving it. If I start a game, though, I can seriously kiss the day away.

I prefer EU over Ck but the CK-EU game converter gives lots of incentives to play CK.

Been playing EU since the original first came out back in 2000, I had to get it shipped in as it wasn't initially distributed here.
