What you want is a sign-on bonus and a guaranteed minimum. I'll be taking the recruiting fee as your exclusive agent. I charge 20% of your first year contract. That gives us both incentive to get you the best, front-loaded contract we can. In a game filled with injuries like Dip, prudence pays.

Of course, recruiting you into a Forum game is on my bucket list. :) I was going to try to get you to come play my first game as GM, but it filled quickly. Once you come play one, you'll be hooked. :)

And here I thought you were working pro bono. Ah well, that will teach me to ignore fine print. :shock:
Make sure they have Peanut M&M's and Reece's Cups in the green room while I wait for my game to start. :)

Charlie, how 'bout an all-London team?

Sadly I'm sitting on 98.92% consistency and so am shut out of the platinums for another 195 NMR-free turns (that damned flight from Singapore when I was in 2 12-hour games was a killer)

Is this still a thing that is happening? Because it sounds like something I would love to do...probably not as a team captain, but as a player definitely :)
