New scenario from the great designer Tom Weber and Mark Johnson. Yay! :)

According to Tom:
"You can play either a side (Axis vs Soviets) or split the game up into sectors (AG North and Finland, AG Center, AG South and Romania, Soviet NW Fronts, Soviet Center Fronts, Soviet Southern Fronts)...Up to 6 players can play if the side are split into sectors."

Here will be the players (we can start w/ less than 6 if desired - maybe 4 instead - we'll see how much interest there is)

German AG North + Finland - JAMiAM
German AG Center - 03_walk_alot
German AG South and Romania - Captain Cruft
Soviet NW Fronts - lomyrin
Soviet Center Fronts - JJDenver
Soviet Southern Fronts - BULLDOGINTHEUK

Version of game to be used: 1.10N Beta - and we'll upgrade once the full version is released

Turns: You should be able to turn around your turn within 12-24 hours - sooner if possible so the game can keep moving...at least as often as possible you should be able to do your turn quickly - occasionally we all know that real life intervenes though. :)

End of game: The game will be played out to the bitter end - no surrenders accepted unless all on other side agree to it - and I don't plan to agree since I'd like to see what happens in 1944 - I'm sure we all would. Of course if Poland is taken or the Soviets lose most of the map I guess the game will end then. :) If you have to step out of the game be sure that you've used a password that you are willing to give up so that the game can continue.

Options:
- 3 fronts active
- Fog of War
- Passwords
- Screenshots
- Anti PBEM cheat

House rules:
- Each player (front) is allowed one do-over per year. This should be used only in case the player does something silly - something like an accidental click that transfer all staff out of an HQ instead of the truck you meant to transfer. This means each player can re-do a turn one time in 1941, once in 42, etc.

- No building of production centers is allowed - the scenario designers did not intend to allow this so it will be house-ruled out. Production on map is all you get.

Pls PM me if you'd like to take a side. I can't wait to try this baby out. :)

DAMN! I wanted to get in on this.

Hope we can get another going when I get back after the 24th. Put me down as a spare.....

I'd suggest turning on the location names as well so all us out here in TV land can follow the action easier.

I'd like to take AGN + Finland, if you don't mind. Looks like that will play the quickest.

This game is now full - thanks.

Everyone pls DL the scenario - we'll get it started today I think. First player is JaMiAM.

Jam - pls don't start yet though - as we're waiting to see when Tom expects to update the scenario - but my feeling is that it won't be soon so we'll probably be good to go by tonite - will let you know.

I'll also send out everyone's email address in an email (not a post). If you haven't sent me your email pls do so now in a PM.

Could I request that map labels are turned on. The white text looks best IMHO.

It's good to see that Giacomo has my flank. Welcome aboard, as well, to Captain Cruft, who I've not previously had the pleasure of playing. As to these untermenschen that we are aligned against...I say we give them everything they so deserve...

No problem. It'll give me a while to practice some opening turns. I'll be entering an internet dead-zone from about 3 pm, to about 9:30 pm, Pacific Standard Time. I'll check before and after to find out the latest word.

When I do get around to sending out the first turn, I'll also send to my team mates, my password. That way, they can play on, should I go out of pocket.

I switched w/ BULLDOGINTHEUK to take Soviet Center as he initially requested Soviet South. I fancy playing the center anyway if that is fine w/ BULLDOG.

JaMiAM go ahead and start it up I think. Good luck guys - and hopefully we can keep the game moving quickly for the rest of 2008! :)

I'll start it, after I get off of work, and am in the "Dead Zone". Then, I'll send it on, when I get home and connected.

Everyone have fun, and see you all on the other side of the Urals...

I did play with the new version that Tom had emailed to me. I will send it to all on the game emailing list. Sorry, I would have done so sooner, but I assumed that Tom had sent it out to each.

On its way...
