PH seems to have disappeared, at least temporarily. He sent word more than a week ago that he'd be back and flip a turn yesterday, but I haven't seen or heard from him. It's too early to bug him, so I'm just chilling out and waiting to see what happens.
Like most, but not all, players, PH doesn't excel at communication about when the next turn will be coming. I'd guesstimate that perhaps 33% to 50% of players involved in a single PBEM match are good at communication with their opponent. Once a player takes on more than one PBEM at a time, the percentage immediately drops to the single digits.*
*Chez da Jes is one of the rarities - he juggled matches vs. Bradford Kay and me, but was always very courteous in telling us exactly when the next turn would come or wouldn't.
That is not good. I'm sure you've initiated some of these conversations yourself. You strike me as the 1% who would nearly always give forewarning that a turn was or was not coming. Too bad others don't follow suit.
