it seems I can join a Versailles game, but only if someone else sets it up for me. But I can't ask them to, as I want it to be anon players. Conundrum. Please solve.

PM me with all the parameters you want for the game. I'll set it up but not join it myself, which I think should fix things.

We can also just make it Anonymous Countries, unless you were looking for gunboat / PPO.

The real suggestion here is "let people who aren't premium create premium games, assuming they will use a premium credit to do so."

Anyway, why is it like that? Surely it would be easier to allow people to create games. They can still only join a limited number. If not, I will take you up on that offer at a random point in the future.

You would just use a prem credit to join it, not create it. But I don't see why anyone would abuse it.

It's a UI thing. I think it would be very frustrating for someone unfamiliar with the system to get a game all set up only to realize they can't actually join it (or would have to spend a credit to do so). I do think there are some ways to get around this problem, but none of them are implemented yet.

I mean, it's not completely anonymous. But how often does that really matter in a practical sense?

Every single anon countries game I have played, everyone knows who everyone is after two turns.
