The rules are found here

We will play strictly turn order, you can make good use of Conditional Orders to speed up the process.

I will post again before I sleep tonight, and hopefully several times if possible. I'll be traveling this whole week for work so my free time is limited.

My understanding is that the players are swapped for the second game to give a more fair match. I should be in upper left and be first player. That's the same start as Nohtel had in game 1. Obviously there are still a lot of lucky elements with tiles revealed and units, etc., but starting positions should be the same from game 1 to game 2.

Actually there's no difference between the two settings. Most of the players in the other games retained the same positions for the second round.

Ira has to change his placement of capital and figures. The majority of the other games have followed the same setting. After all there's absolutely no difference between the two settings.

Sorry for my confusion about starting tiles. Obviously this is no problem!

I'm realizing how much luck makes a difference. Even though we're playing the opposite civs, it's not really as a fair comparison as we think. Early tile draws can make a huge difference.

Japan movement cont:
Scout to M5
Army to M6

Yes, playing with Japan may lead you early on to tricky situations due to the starting tile.

I don't have the units left, and I'm going to be busy for the rest of the day. I'll check again tomorrow in ~24 hours.
