I've had the idea for this Let's Play in my head for awhile, a series to teach the basics on how to play Europa Universalis IV. I even recorded some 4 hours of video which I then deleted because it just didn't feel unique enough. There are no shortage of tutorials and let's play out there, so if I was going to add then I wanted to add something extra to the conversation.
These videos are the result. In them I do go over how to play EUIV as a beginner, but I also try to cover the actual history of the time period the game takes place in to give the game some context.
I'm finding it challenging but rewarding. I'm in no way a historian, and so the vast majority of historical information in these videos is stuff I didn't know last Friday, myself.
Episode 1 -- The Hundred Years War
Episode 2 -- Expelling the English
These videos represent a pretty big undertaking, so please do let me know if this is interesting and if you'd like to see more.
