Don't forget, the first orders are due noon wed. Please make sure your orders are explicit and not subject to interpretations. This goes double if you have fleets that will operate in Bul, Spa, and Stp with 2 coastlines. Any orders that require interpretation will be interpreted by Joel and his twisted mind.

No retreat orders necessary. Fall 1901 orders due Sat noon Pacific time (for you non west coasters). France, you missed your turn. One more miss and we drop you.

Kang, were his orders late or just never submitted?

If the latter, this is unacceptable. In that event, I propose we find a replacement player immediately and allow him to take over France. Possibly even submit retroactive first turn orders.

What do my fellow players and adjudicator think? We had a WEEK to turn in orders.

I'd be unfair to toss someone in with such a disadvantage. If we're to replace John, then we should also start over. It's a wasted week, yes, but the new player will need at least a few days to play his politics out. Who knows, this new replacement may radically change what political ties are currently made.

I gotta side with Dave on this. It'd be kind of a boning for France to start a turn or 2 late but at the same time be an advantage since they saw the first turn moves. I'm not sure what I'm in favor of doing... but yeah...

No, I meant just letting the replacement submit first year orders (with the advantage of having seen others) to make up for the lost week of negotiations. If so, this needs to be ASAP.

But it's not a big deal either way, so I'll vote with the majority.

Let's see what Kang responds with though. If John got his turn in late, I'm willing to let it slide just this once. I'm just not down with France missing two consecutive turns.

What happened John? :(

This is tricky.

If John just got his orders in late, I think we should continue as planned.


If we need a replacement they're going to have to be fast on their feet (tongue?) to talk their way out of this. I would favor that person being able to submit orders for Spring 1901, even having seen our moves. It makes it difficult for the rest of us, but this is a tough game to play.

It does tend to tip the balance of things quite a bit... however, we had people fail to turn in orders last game and the only reason there wasn't a protest was because their non-motion didn't directly affect anyone. It seems kind of self-serving to raise a fuss about it now...

I guess I feel like not turning in orders is a valid option thats covered in the rules as well. The conniving french may just be trying to lure us into a false sense of security. But if a player's actions are ruining the fun for everyone else, then thats stepping over the line I guess...

I'm inclined to suggest we let him turn in his orders late this time, with the exception that he can't cause a movement conflict (no standoffs) with his orders. I don't think we should talk replacement unless it happens again :)

Quite the opposite - I dare say I benefit more than anyone from French non-movement, but I would rather have a challenging beginning to the game than have a couple turns without French moves and then have to either start over or find someone willing to take over a France in dire straights. :)

If we are still in touch with him and know he's still interested in playing, sure! :D
