Default Re: Crazy Game - PBEM - Any takers?

Hey, I am interested in anything crazy.

However, I would have a hard time committing to 24 hour turns. Perhaps if you could allow a one day host delay upon request, I could commit to that.

Also, one of my big problems is the unreliability of my current email server (mails are lost too often). Perhaps you could set up an acknowledgement script with an automatic reply that you have received the 2h file.

And to be REALLY crazy, why not random nations? Just leave out Ermor, and perhaps the water nations (on certain maps), and randomly assign the remaining nations to players.

If we are picking, however, I would like to reserve TC (unless it is a low magic setting).

I always knew you were a crazy kat.

I am open to all sorts of stuff. I would prefer to choose nations. I am also very happy to exclude Ermor from the mix, especially after the spanking the dastardly Boron gave me in the last game.

The hosting schedule can be 48 hours if players prefer. We might want it to be 24 hours for the first 10 or 15 turns to get things moving. As always, hosting postponements will be granted upon request.

My preferred map is Tyrande, and that would limit the number of players to 8, but if there is a high demand, then we could do Arduria, which might be an excellent map for water nations.

I am happy to send confirmation emails when I receive turns.

In terms of other settings, I was expecting to play with the standard settings, which might keep the game moving. But, we could adjust the magic setting a wee bit so that magic does not progress too rapidly, depending on the size of the map. Another idea would be to start with 3 provinces to give the game a kick start.

Zowie! No other takers? Is it the maps, the settings, the way I smell?

Well, I would have loved to join but I'm currently engaged in four MP games and I don't I think I can squeeze a fifth in.
One of them games is about to end, so maybe if this game was scheduled to start in a week or so from now I might be able to join.

Oh and I'm moving to a new apartment at the beginning of July, meaning my Internet connectivity will be hurt for a week or two, so I'm not sure if this is reasonable for this game or not.

Well, maybe we will leave this "invitation" open for a while.

What happened to the days when games filled up within 24 hours?
