Just a couple quick things. I'm on a nine to ten hour shift that I need to leave for shortly, so my communication will be ending until tomorrow. Which is unfortunate because I'm so stoked at getting this game going - right now.
Secondly, I'm not sure what you mean about Emergency Naval moves. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Oh and thank you for both contacting me and setting up the game, Dave. Good luck and may the most oblivious triumph! :)
My account on Acts is username: rhino. Again, I have no preference to which side to play. In every attempt of a game I've played as the US with the exception of solo play, in which case the Japs nearly took all the US of the map. My good friend and opponent of the other games never even attacked and only played cards to affect the War in Europe or Strategic Rivalry stuff. I'm confident that I'll be equally poor at either side but am hopeful to at least get through a game! :)
Which reminds me, do you want to play a scenario or either full or short campaign? Of these, I'm personally leaning towards the full campaign; however, would be happy to play any of the alternate game partitions.
It will be a major learning game for me - if you don't mind. I don't understand the ebb and flow of the game yet so I will probably make some fundamental errors, but I would love to learn to play. I don't prefer to play one side over an other, so if your preferences don't lean even in the slightest way, we could just 'flip a coin'.
