Is it possible to play a pbem game and send the turns back and forth to yourself using different email addys? Would the game not allow this since the game's serial numbers on both ends are the same? Just wondering if I would be wasting my time testing something in this way. If this won't work I guess I could always buy a second TOAW since it's on sale. Would rather not since I'm not independently wealthy.

Why not just play head to head? Why bother with e-mail?

I've tested scenarios PBEM using the old fashioned way of pretending you're sending files back and forth.
You'll get an error message about one of you using a pirated copy of the game engine but you can click
past that.

Thanks Larry. I'll give it a go.
