All teams will play 9 rounds, starting at 10:00 a.m. and have until 11:45 p.m. to complete.  

Since I know you can play a round in 45 minutes Sired, you can probably catch both Brittany and Celine in one night!!

My next video will provide more info.

For those who haven't found my new channel, here is a link to it:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChMYwf2ssutrhrhemtg0xWg?view_as=subscriber

Alternatively, you can search Youtube for Desert Admiral.

I'm already at 13 subscribers!  (small steps)

One of my next videos will have something I've done that everyone I've shown thinks is pretty cool (haven't seen it on any other channel.)  Tune in to find out!!

If the Allied Powers control the Philippines for the entire game, when does The United States get their FOW research roll?

i don't think they'd get a FoW in that case they'd just get an extra point at the end of the game if phillipines had never been taken

A lot of players like to come with partners, but for those that don't have one, players will be grouped into teams.  Teams will be assigned enough in advance for teams to discuss strategy.  For Toronto I played with Surprise Attack from New York.  We talked quite a bit and even played each other several times on Triple A on the forums.

Hey guys!  Been working quite a bit and been away from the forums.  I've decided to simplify the rules for this tournament.  After a lot of thought and consultation with others, I'm making Victory conditions for both sides, much closer to OOB rules.  In addition I want to incentivize teams to take and hold while not allowing their opponents  to get points to help them out in tie breakers.

This is all out war!  Their will be no mercy!!

Last week I went to a coordination meeting for Meeplecon where we're holding the tournament.  They have a total of 600 registrations available and have already sold a little more than 200.  Please register so that you don't miss out.
