I will get in touch with them.

Rich Hamilton at JTS provided the game free of charge in good faith, and I think those players who have had the game should at the very least make an effort to keep to their side of the bargain.

If this is a problem that players will take what is effectively a free game to them and not hold to their side of the bargain - i.e. to participate, then this sends a very bad precedent to those publishers and developers who are kind enough to sponsor us. On a personal note it begs the question, "why should I bother too?"

In the meantime Z1812 will you please contact Nikolai and play the competition scenario anyway? It may be that there are good reasons why the others have been out of touch and we can feed them into the competition once things are cleared up.

I will PM Nikolai.

Well Nikolai and I are ready to start. Matt3916 just indicated he is ready to play. I suggest we wait over the weekend. If we get 1 more player then there will be 2 on each side. What do you think?

If not we can play 3.

Just as to the mechanics of the game. I have not played more than one person at a time. I have not played on a team.

What is the sequence of play. So player A and B on team 1 gets the turn. They review the move and confer by email, then decide upon the move and either player A or B returns it?

Or does each player have specific formations they exclusively control? They confer and one completes and sends the turn.

The players on each team decide who will command what forces.  The opposing team will send you the turn and player 1 will move his forces and send the file to player 2 who will move his forces and end the turn and send to the both members of the opponents team.  They then do the same and so on and so forth.

Thanks for the reply. That sounds quite efficient. I was not aware that the game allowed you to pass the move to a friendly player.

Played 1 has to remember not to end the turn, just save it.  Player 2 needs to be the one to end the turn each time. You will need to share the password as well.

Hi All,

I Have sent an email to Nikolai. I have suggested that the teams be Nikolai and Matt, versus myself and nelmsm. I have also suggested the scenario A Matter of Honour at 27 turns. Does that suit everyone?
