The 2015 PBeM Here I Stand Tournament

Sponsored by: The Boardgame Players Association and GMT Games

GM: Michael Kiefte

This is a Play-By-Email tournament for GMT's Here I Stand: Wars of the Reformation 1517–1555 covering the political and religious conflicts of early 16th Century Europe.  The game pits the leading figures of the period as they try to lead their respective powers to domination of worldly affairs.  Can Suleiman the Magnificent lead the Ottoman Turks to victory in Hungary?  How does Charles V deal with enemies that surround him both military and religious?  Will Martin Luther firmly establish the Reformation or will the Pope stifle this heretical uprising?  Henry VIII needs an heir but will he find a suitable wife to give him one?  Finally, can Francis I maintain and increase French influence in northern Italy or will his attention turn elsewhere?
