Monday June 20 Possible Live Game

Hey all! I've got some free time this Monday, June 20, and if I can get enough interest then I'd like to run a live game, as I haven't played one in ages! It'll have to be 3 hours at least, because I don't want to have to play too many years after the live phase ends ;)

So, possible settings. Please leave a comment or a PM if you have a preference you'd like changed, or if you'll be around to play!

3 hours live phase
Classic or AMED map, depending on interest level
Anon countries
2/1/1 deadlines after live
Preferences country selection
The good units. The really good ones. Not the shark and dinos good ones (looking at you balefully, Dipsy! :evil: ;) ), but still, pretty good.

Would create it between 11am and 1pm EST (5-7pm CET). Anyone interested, give me a shout! :)

I see these 3 hour games, but who is able to do three hours straight with virtually no break. Is there a way to pause live games without eating into the 3 hour time, like sometime in the middle? I'm interested in a live game, but a 3 hour game with strict 15 minute turn time limits is a turn off for me.

No way to pause it in the middle and pick it back up as a live game that I know of. Three hours is a bit taxing, and normally I'd be happy with a 2 hour live, but with the forum games I've got going on I don't really want to tie myself down to that many game years after the live! What I do, and obviously this doesn't work for everyone, but I play from my laptop so I can eat and go to the bathroom with minimal interruption, or I have food and water set out ahead of time if I'm playing from a desktop setup. It's not ideal, but it usually gets me through.

Ehh, when I play around the table, we usually go 3 hours, break for lunch, then 5 hours, break for dinner, then a few more hours to finish ;)...

Sadly I have to work today (in PST, sooo)
