We need a competitive game of GD1938 game 29

With the following rules

1) turns must be completed within 24 hours if you cannot guarantee this please don't put your name forward.

2) Usual House rules apply No False Wars if this occurs then the turn is played again.

My pick is the USA

That leaves Germany Italy Japan USSR France GB China

We will use the version used for game 27 excluding the weather effects

He is working on a new version with different weather effects.

Duke, I am ok with the house rules, but we need to make sure that everyone understands the house rules. It can't just be a replayed turn or people getting angry because a perceived false war wasn't really a false war, but shown in that light because it was a good tactical move. It should really be an issue, I think people understand this.

Looking for two more players to play GB/France and the USSR

I was thinking about allowing the AI to control China if we don't have a player, as its land based and the USA and China are to strong a combination.

Yeah, Japan does not have a chance if China and the US are allied from the start. Japan needs to either conquer China quickly or talk China into allying itself with Japan to knock out someone else. Even when fighting only China Japan needs to win quickly because lack of supplies will stop her dead in her tracks.

That sounds like great news Tom, this would obviously mean you found a way to make the AI play the cards it has, at times when it is preferable. Looking forward to see the code for this. Happy you decided to code :)

No coding required I expect the Japanese player to make relatively short work of the Chinese, not how I would have liked it, but in the absence of 8 players willing to play turns within 24 hours, its a necessary evil.

As we have only three players, is anyone interested in a three handed game Player 1 Germany Italy and Japan Player 2 France UK USA and China Player 3 USSR.

This constitutes a large body of work but at least its a game, I am jumping in to take the USSR and will try and play the USSR as historically accurately as possible that's just my choice and not a house rule you guys can knock yourselves out better we have a Soviet Union that mirrors the original and does not seek war. I may attack Finland but to be honest I will probably give it a miss as the Finns never last long.

The version will be one of the older versions pre the weather fiasco. The German player has that responsibility.

Call it what you will. But one thing is certain, I will not be bullied into making fixes/changes until a different tone is being used. I have plenty of other things I can do besides coding a fix, that you are the only one advocating.

Please stay on topic. This is opponents wanted only.

while you are here game 26 the USSR turn has not been played it has been in the file since the 29th of January. Shame to end the game with so much time spent by players.

I already have explained in some detail why and put a notice up in the dropbox. So the delay is not my fault.

No not fun when someone is being a jerk about things they want changed, and think up 70 other things they don't like while at it. Someone might take that personal.

Is there any chance that you will desist from trolling this thread, you are clearly not interested in playing in game 29.

Guys, I was invited to a new game of ATG and I am going to have to withdraw my hat from this game for now. I am just too bust for another one.

Thanks.

Not a problem I never had much hope of getting enough players together with a 24 hour rule, it has been attempted before unsuccessfully, as I said most players do not have the time to complete turns within 24 hours. But I will keep a eagle eye open for game 30
