A query...

This may be a silly question ...
As a new member; looking at some of the existing games it appears that the same player is shown as playing more than one country.
Can someone explain?

Just off the top of my head those games are probably the new 2-player variant games recently introduced onsite. Or, they could be Friends games.

They will be shorthanded games. The new 2-player challenge actually only has two countries, with one player each.

But shorthanded games (created with the Player Number option set) share the countries out. For >4 players each player only has 1 country, but for <=4 some players will be playing more.

- 4 player - 3 players play two countries, one player has only 1
- 3 players - 2 players play 2 countries, 1 plays 3
- 2 players - each player plays 3 countries (Italy in CD)
