    I wonder why the Ottoman Empire is called Turkey. I just noticed that.

    How many players are we short from the 7 required? Perhaps we should advertise for a player or two from the diplomacy forum.

    We'll have to ask the spicy pepper dude on this one, since he's the one with all the PM's of country preferences and such.

    I have Thlayli, Sheep, Human-slaughter, LightFang, and MjM. That's five players.

    It seems we won't get any more: do people want to play the 5-player variant, in which Germany and Italy have units placed but aren't active?

    It's described on page 19 of the rulebook here. Basically, yes, since they don't support themselves. It would, however, allow new players to jump in once the game gets going.

    Ah what the h***, I've never played the game but I'm a fast learner and love board games like this one. I've got the rules from the previous post and will read them through over the next hours. Obviously I have no prefered nation, but please don't give me a sitting duck. :)

    That's fine.

    Do people want to stick it out for one more person, or just leave Italy as neutral?

    Have you read the rules? If not, and if you haven't taken the time to read the rules yet despite repeatedly posting in this thread, I'd rather you not play.

    Hey nik and Nuclear kid I would definently suggest just taking a look at the rule book it is very straightforward and once you get the basics the rest is very easy to understand.

    I will most certainly read the rules in their full, I have no intention of joining this game without going for a complete and utter victory. :p
