Re: Newbie looking for advice on first victory (:

I think that you got it eventually! Control of the North Sea is critical. Dislodging the English fleet in a Spring phase was smart because you could have popped the fleet without losing a supply center if it tried to retreat to Belgium or something.

The answer Yes to 6 is more of a negative no than a positive yes.

OK, but you understand what I'm saying, right? It wouldn't allow private messaging if all of the players can see everything that gets posted.

Re: Cryptic messages and intrigue

This seems like an awful lot of work for a public press game. When you share the key, wouldn't all the great powers + anyone on the internet be able to decrypt your message? It just seems like it would lightly penalize players who might be limited to accessing the website via their phones or work co...

Re: readying games

I have created a couple of games with a friend for AvF and, in spite of my friend having joined the game, it doesn't allow us to start and it's instead running its course till the end of the pre-game phase (I left the 7 days default). Is there a way I can speed it up or do I have to create a new ga...
