Good to have you back Ed! If you want someone to play a single nation other than the Soviets, I can... have two games running, so that's the max for now.

I would like to play this one. Also I would agree with more than 3 players.

I don't know that we can get a fair game with Russia free to attack anyone at anytime and Germany under assault or forced to fight before even getting Austria and Czechoslovakia out of the way.

You also set it up so Rumania favors France of all places

Thanks for your points, they have been noted. However the game where the Soviets declared war turn one on the Romanians has yet to play out, and may indeed turn out to be something the Soviets regret. Not everyone will be able to pull of the Romania stunt either, since the Romanians have quite a few forces, and the Soviets fight at a huge disadvantage.

Historically the French and the Romanians had a better relationship than Germany/Italy had with them at this time. So I find this quite correct.

Hey, I get to be the ginny pig on this one. Chuck always finds a way to harass me with his good strategy. I hated it but thought it was brilliant. I spent two hours walking around the track trying to figure a way out. Thanks for the exercise, Chuck:0 I Used Germans a shield and launched a sneak attack with Japan. These cost Soviets 40pp for the war and an attack on their tale. I have two other plans to follow them up... I may regret them or they may work. At this point though it's not a far gone conclusion either way. Soviets are very tight on PP to start... this could have long-term ramifications and Soviets can't afford to declare on the Allies. It took me going all in for the move, again let's see if this padawan can make his old Jedi master pay for this move...

Hi all,
I'm up for playing a country. I'm still learning the game so China, Italy or France would probably be best for me.

How many players do we have? I think we could have up to 5 players, but then there should be arrangements to allow for an allied to play with other player´s country if needed.
A suggestion would be:
1-Germany+Italy
2-Japan
3-USSR
4-France+GB
5-USA+China

It´s possible but we should have at least 5 players. I don´t know exactly how many players we have.
I would also advthat idea, the USA player could easily die from boredom.

Well, I´m a volunteer, but I don´t know how many of us are willing to play...
If you´re a volunteer too then we have two players.
Not sure what Armoured Lion and lordlau want.

No one will give orders here, we rule by consent
We have here
Bombur
Quibbles
Armoured Lion
Gray Nemesis

I would suggest
Axis
USSR
France + GB
USA + China

Armoured Lion is the best player here, maybe he could play France + GB
I would like to put my hand in the Axis, or even to try a different approach to USSR
Just a suggestion

Thanks again, Bombur. I'll take the compliments when I can get 'em. I'd prefer USA and China though... But if I must be the French, reluctantly, so be it. I'm the GB and FR in another game and I like to keep it fresh...

If I can chip in with some advice...

The player with the hardest job should probably be played by the best player. Judging from comments on here, and from own experience, the Axis is the hardest to play. Thereafter it is the USSR.

However, he is already playing USSR in another game

My suggestion
-I take USSR
-Armoured Lion Axis
Quibble and Gray Nemesis divide the allies (France+GB vs China+USA)
It´s possible I will need aprovisional replacement in a few days, I´m moving from my home in 2-3weeks and I can lose access to intenet. I still can play by using other computers but it takes more time.

Woowwaa... I'm sorry, I'd love to play Axis, but I am in 3 games, 2 of which are very demanding. Another demanding game is too much for my schedule. I'm sorry to be a stick on the mud, but I can only play as a lower key player on this one. If you have another player I can be replaced as well... Again, sorry, but I can't manage it at the moment, Bombur. US and China or a single nation is the best I can give ATM...

Gray would likely want a more active role... maybe we can flip :) I have seen 1st hand how big the Soviet army becomes very quickly... I might be able to manage it... but US and China is a tasty looking treat... is it a must that I play Soviets?
