Glories of Eden: A Scramble for Africa NG - The Turtledove nominated Glories of Eden is the most successful of Gwrtheyrn Annwn's nation games, possibly even holding the record for longest running nation game, in terms of turns played.

CNG: Broken Mirror Chapter 2: After the Fallout - This was the first Nation Game run by Gwrtheyrn Annwn and was inspired by Fenwick's Broken Mirror, being designed as a sequel.

1100 Map Game - Inspired by Upvoteanthology's 1490 Map Game that Gwrtheyrn Annwn had previously participated in, thus game eventually died due to arguing between PiratePartyist and Richter von Manhofen.

The Game of Dynasties - The Game of Dynasties was a COAAW game, but with a twist. In it the players created dynasties instead of nations. The world building part of this map game was completed. There was a standard map game planned but it died after only one turn by Don.
