I play this game with a friend weekly, and now I want to experiment. I want to set this up where we use two different tvs, and hence two different xboxes. I hope this means we don't see what the other is doing. I own an xbox, he owns one. So, I'm going to set up the two xboxes connected by a crossover cable. I'm hoping that when I do my moves, he doesn't see this, and vice-versa. Has anybody experimented? If not, I will report the results of my findings.

No, it does not support system link. Something we wanted to add, but just never got around to it due to time constraints, etc. Twisted Evil

If two or more people are playing on the same console (and that´s the only multiplayer way to go) of course someone will have to go blind somehow during others turn, that´s inevitable, but here´s a kind of a rule we use and get fair plays:

When passing the controller to the next player, the game must be on the end turn option menu, and fully zoomed on the x-1 y-1 hex (or any blind spot), so the receiving player can´t see s**t. Then the giving party ends turn and the receiver turn starts precisely on the same fully zoomed spot (in prescense of the parties), so the giving also can´t see enemy position. Fair play can be veryfied ate any time by the turn counter.

I insist, all the time before/after this method the enemy players must go blind somehow, otherwise the match should be declared void.

As my memory serves you can play up to four players with four different controllers....like I said, as I remember....could be wrong, it has been awhile. Twisted Evil

You can also have to remember to turn off the option to goto capitol every turn as well if I remember correctly. Cool

I had forgot about that, the go to capitol option must be turned off
