Actually yeah, you're right. I did too at first, but when I was double checking I saw two 3 way draws and one 4 way draw, and so thought I had made a mistake and put him to 11. I forgot that the 4 way draw had been after 1915, and he actually only got 2 points from it.

Mmm. Except no one will want to ally with me.
So to disguise my writing style I plan to communicate only in French.

That should work real well. ;)

Can we start to discuss a starting date for the final? I'd like to wait until around the 20th of April, as I'll be going on Easter vacation and then off to hospital for surgery after Easter.

My thoughts exactly!

I'd be willing to take your place though bit. ;-)

I'll ally with you Bats, I love you man ;)

As for starting, I also am in favor of starting immediately and, once we get the #s figured out and know the players we can start right away. No reason to way for Samarkand.

Seriously guys - we are going to wait for bit, aren't we?

I think surgery is probably a good enough excuse (although some may say that he should take his laptop into theatre with him or that his diplomacy would improve after medication :) )

It seems clear that the final 7 are either set, or will be 6+1 new player when the last game ends so lets do a head count as to what everyone's availability is to start in the next 30 days. I certainly want to be reasonable in accommodating everyone's issues

Also we will have the games 2/3/4 to start up as well for those players that did not make the Final.

I'm available immediately without limitations in the next 60-90 days that I can't work around

I have nothing hindering me for the next 3 months. But I'm happy to be patient while Bitwise is one.
