I've been pondering running an NES again. The biggest problem I ran into was players playing. They didn't send in orders. What's the best way to notify them? Ask them to turn on email notifications regarding the thread? Has anyone come up with a good way to keep stats (especially military numbers) hidden, or at least not an exact number? Instead of every play seeing that Syria has 13000 infantry and 5000 cav, maybe a number on a scale of 1-10? Do you think players would enjoy spoken updates via podcast?
