There are just over 376 years in the vanilla campaign for Europa Universalis IV.
FUN FACT: 376 is perfectly divisible by 8. There are eight (nearly) identical 47-year segments.
Why should this matter? Well a few months ago there was a poster who was going to do a Vic2 playthrough switching tags randomly every 10 years. I don't believe they ever got past the first 10 years but I was intrigued. I thought I would try applying that to EU4.
Well 10 years isn't enough time to get anything done in EU4, however OCD demands an evenly divisible number of years. Thus...
THE OCHO!
Let's see what the dice choose for our first country.
