5 Player or 4 Player? 5 Player is the best!

I have the game, but have never played. If a totally new player doesn't bother you and you need another. I would play.

Hi,


Look forward to start the game :-)

So, unless any reaction in contrary, I would suggest the following:

Brizia - E/S
Wayne - Gauls
Mario - Greeks
Matt - Romans

Lets try to keep a good pace in the game by having a movement per day minimum. I am currently traveling in Europe, and will set the game later this weekend. Also if all agree we use dropbox, but let me know if this is ok !

thanks
Mario

E/S for me it's fine
I think it's not necessary to use dropbox

I agree with Brizia, do we need Dropbox? I just keep a vassal file going myself and move the pieces around as the phases occur. Occasionally we send a jpg file of the map to make sure we all have the same pieces in the right places.

I have never played but heard good things about it. I'm familiar with Vassal for other wargames played there and I think I have an account for AHIKS which I rarely use.

You can email me at

Bishop*026@*sbcglobal.net

Just remove the asterisks and the email is good to go. Gotta watch out for spammers.

Thanks.

Bishop
