Wow, there's more interest than I thought there would be.

Clarifications:
1. I'm capping the number of players at 10.
2. The "Four Corners" states (AZ/CO and UT/NM) do NOT share a border.
3. Ontario shares a border with Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.
4. Minnesota and Michigan share a border. And Zebb, there's an actual land border between Michigan and Wisconsin.

Would it help if I redrew the map to make borders more clear?

Current list of players:
gislason - Texas/red
aaronc70 - Which state do you want?
Spekulatius - Minnesota/orange
shavemybaby - Florida/green
Klik/Klak - Tennessee/hot pink
richrey - New York/(red is taken, choose another color)
Dran Savo - Washington/grey

Still need 3 more. I had thought about playing myself, but I'm not sure whether it's considered good form to play and manage the same game.

I'll try to start it sometime this week, depending on how long it takes me to actually figure out how to make this work (any help y'all can give me would be greatly appreciated).
An empty gun can be useful, if the person it's pointed at doesn't know that it's empty.

This looks quite fun!

I'd like New Hampshire/Yellow, please!

I yield Texas to Santiago,because of the pointless talk(and my lack of texan decorations).I'll now take Arizona with red.

So, we'll probably be starting sometime today, tomorrow at the very latest. I'll PM everyone when it starts.

Still need to hear from aaronc70 as to which state he wants (that's the main thing holding us back right now). Richrey, I've assigned purple as your color, if you'd like something different let me know.

Below is the new and improved map:

Remember that we're starting with the Winter 2000 (build) phase. The phase will end 11:59pm EST on the day after we start (or when I have everyone's orders, whichever comes first). Late orders will not be accepted.

Final list of players:
gislason - Arizona
aaronc70 - ?
Spekulatius - Minnesota
shavemybaby - Florida
Klik/Klak - Tennessee
richrey529 - New York
Dran Savo - Washington
Santiago Matamoros - Texas
Acemaster -New Hampshire
WFU03 - Maryland

Reserves are always welcome to join!

Yeah, that map looks great. If that ever gets started again I'd jump on it. 8-)
