I’m fine with straight up no bid to start, just to get a feel for this edition.
I don’t want to introduce something that skews the start like a Power Europe, PAfr, or PAsia bid at this point. I’ve read some games with the Russian bomber and it seems an interesting compromise, but I’ll leave that up to you. I’d like to be the Allies, but I wouldn’t want you to be bored playing the Axis. If the bomber helps then that is fine by me. I’ll defer to your experience there.
Hopefully I can get started tonight. I’m using TripleA 188.8.131.52 which should be the latest I think. If you want to PM an email to use I can set up and go with R1 either tonight or tomorrow. I’ll put the game thread in the play games area.
