I wish it were like this:

Istanbul 2020
Cape Town or Durban 2024
Boston or Lima 2028

Not to mention a city of my country that is applying (highly doubt).

I dont think you understand the concept.

You choose what city you want form a team (or do it alone), make a bid book, logo, slogan, and try to get an olympics to your city. Its a fantasy bid game. So I have Boston, I try to build Boston to host the Olympics and a committee (which hasnt been chosen yet) votes on all the cities like the real process is. Read the first post for more information

You can choose any Brazillian city other than Rio.

It seems that a lot of people are confused about what this game actually .

Please post what you think the game is and I'll tell you if you're right or wrong.

I only have 4 confirmed applicants, and 1 of them I haven't heard from since he applied.

Boston has announced the designers for Olympic Park (Seaport district of Boston), and all new proposed Venues that will go up.

"We have decided to hire RTKL Associates to conduct the urban planning, architecuture, and urban design portion of our Olympic Games bid" Mayor Menino said today. Today has been a busy day for the Boston 2028 campaign who became the first City to officially upload there logo, and slogan.
Renderings won't be released until after the bid book is done according to Menino. Tomorrow there is expecting to be major announcements regarding support from athletes and powerful people across the country joing Boston's bid. Boston isn't the only city in America trying to get into the Olympics as Miami as officially announced there candidacy for the Olympics as well. Rumours are swirling that Washington DC, and Philadephia are also interested. "We believe that we have a great chance even against tough foes like them because of our hard work and preservarance through all this." Menino added "We will also offer a compact games opportunity, which you will find out more later on ." He added

Countries that aren't allowed to have a city bid:
North Korea, Burma, Iraq, Afganistan, Pakistan, All African Countries except Egypt, South Africa, and Algeria; and Syria, and Iran.

Tijuana Mexico also isn't allowed.

Note that Isreal who have have to provide intense security information.

LOVE the Boston logo!!! ^

Also, I think Morocco, Nigeria, Kenya etc should be allowed to bid if they want. The "IOC" committee will just knock out any bids that don't do well, so if a team puts together a bid from a country that was mentioned and it doesn't do well, then so be it, but they should be allowed to try no?


also...I think we should reiterate that this is a FANTASY game, and in no way are the press releases, news feeds etc real and should not be mistaken as such.

Cheers!

I can't address that enough

This is a FANTASY GAME.

and I guess those African cities I find but I can't see a city in Afghanistan or even worst Syria applying for the Olympics.

And thanks for the logo love
