In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: viewtopic.php?f=130&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should read the ‘Bugs Forum Guidelines’ thread.
2. In rare situations members have been known to post false bug reports in order to affect the game. This is considered cheating.
3. Please don't post information that might be detrimental to the game, such as revealing the power who sent a message. If further information is required by Admin to investigate the bug, you will be asked to provide it.
If the game a bug may have occurred in is anonymous, including Gunboat and Public Press Only, it is best to send a Private Message to the SITE HELP! group or to post using the Dolph Shtoss account rather than break anonymity.

I’ve gotten Turkey a lot randomly too. I will never complain about drawing Turkey though.

Almost certainly have drawn Austria the fewest times.

It’s definitely random though.

Lol at things being fishy in the Aegean :lol:

I can't remember ever randomly drawing England, while Italy is picked on quite a bit.

lol what?? Choosing power X in a FCFS game gives you a 100% chance of getting power X!
It is a guarantee!

See, it isn't, because we're talking about being able to choose the power you want to play in a game. If that power is already gone you can't choose it. As you say, of course, you can join another game, or create another game, but that assumes that game will get filled.

The only way you can guarantee getting the power you want to play in a game is to start your own game, and hope that the choices you make when setting up the game are what people want to play. Not so this means two games which are on the waiting list.

Is that really what we want? Games waiting to start? Or games being played?
