Are we going to continue this or are we done? Gary you still interested in running it?

I am!  I kind of gathered that we had a general loss of interest in continuing but if you guys want to go on, I'm game.  I'll catch up on where we left off and then do whatever is needed to move forward- if that's the consensus.

I'm out. The game is just taking too long to be able to maintain awareness of the overall situation. When the game is finally updated, there's way too much overhead (for every single card play  :buck2:) in getting back up to speed.

Sorry, guys. If you want to continue you can advertise for a replacement for me, though having one less person to await input or votes from may marginally speed things up.

I must admit, I've sorta lost the plot with it a bit as well. Sorry.

I hate to pile on, but I'm in agreement. It was fun but catching up is going to take more time that I'm not going to be able to invest for a month or so.

Sounds like you guys might be ready to pull the plug on this.  If y'all decide you want to stand up another head-to-head game, let me know and we'll separate out the forum groups again.

Thanks Brant.

Also thanks to Gary for the work he did on it. Sorry it went a bit pear-shaped, but maybe we'll get another chance at some point. O0

Ok, looks like we're done. Thanks Gary for all the work you did. I really like the headline style you used.

Thanks to all the players. It was fun to see this played this way. It was only my second game.

I'm going to collapse all the threads for this game into one and archive it.  If you guys want another one, pls LMK and I'll set it up

You're welcome guys.  My fault for letting it crumble...my real life found me playing the events on the cards that I was being dealt at the time and that took away the time and motivation to contribute to this. 

I'm up for trying it again at any time.  Maybe we can learn something from what we started and find a better way to streamline it in order to speed things up a bit.  It does become a bit tough to follow when several days go by between hands.

Thanks to you all for your cooperation and participation!!
