So you want to be Germany or Russia?

I suppose we could have a great big tournament of eenie-meenie-minie-mo if someone wants one country over the others... :lol: :lol: :lol:
But seriously, everyone is pretty much polarised with regards to Germany and Austria. Either you desperately want them or you are avoiding playing as them at all costs!

If everyone really wants to take this seriously, I suppose we could have a Blind Auction, but where's the fun in that? :D The game is ridiculous enough! :P

I'll add you to the player inventory, Sinny!

We'll get started in a sec. I just need to PM Pedros to move this to the "Active" sub-forum!
While waiting, I suggest brushing up on the rules, as they are extremely complicated. Pay close attention to my NMR policy, as well, as I want this game to set the PlayDip record for shortest game! :lol:

I've no idea what was the shortest game ever (agreed 7-way draws in year one don;t count!! :mrgreen: ) But I've GMd one and won the other of two games of Hundred which were both soloed in two years (and I don't think any NMRs!) That might be equaled here, but mathemtacialy I don'tthink it can be beaten!

Go into the Active sub-forum?

I'll start the game this evening, hopefully, at around 5-6pm GMT +10.

Oh, thanks.
Sorry, I took the last spot.
Unfortunately, I actually haven't been able to put my heart and soul into this game anyway... not that it's a very complex game lol, but I hate it when I don't put my best into something.
