despite the one game 3 years ago, there are no experienced players here ;-D


Fair enough. I just think it would help anyway, but I have the 2nd pick so I can really go either way ;-)

Yes, I need one more country preference list and then we'll be ready to go.

Based on what people said in our previous game, I plan on giving everyone two days to turn in orders for each of the first two turns (So the first orders will be due Wednesday night 10pm EST). After that, we'll shorten it to one day between turns- except for Saturday which will be skipped to give everyone some extra time over the weekend.

Everyone ok with that?

Also, before we start this thing up, does anyone have any questions?

Question: When you say we will play until one player has 18 supply centers, does that mean that there is no 17,17 ties? :-D
