Well, that's 17, but we still have one person who wants 18 players, one who wants only one each, and one who wants only max. Hopefully we can all agree to rules that everyone's fine with. From what I've seen it seems like most people would prefer 2 each, but either works.

Hi All,

I am listed as 18/1/No.

Can do 17/2/No if that gets the show on the road.

Still busy first week of July, so will request a pause if cannot get a sub.

Hope we can progress to action.

I have some messages out to see if people will switch their votes. If so, we will go with 17 players, 2 SCs each.

Now the complicated question. How do we pick centers? I will propose some options here. You can PM me privately or post here your vote. If we get a majority of voters for one option we will take it, if not we will do a run off with the two most popular.

1) Random centers
2) Blind auction for 1st center. 2nd round with what's left for 2nd center.
3) Blind auction for both centers in one round. Each person gets two.
4) A period of diplomacy followed by each player picking a pair of centers. If there are no conflicts for a player then that player gets their choices. Continue rounds until everyone has selected centers. If a round goes by with nothing being selected then centers will be determined randomly.

I favor option 2 followed by option 1.
Classicists Platinum, Oldies & soldier in Cavalry to the rescue
Samnites 3 draw Ad Arma
Prussia draw Ambition & Empire
USSR in 3 draw Blitzkrieg[
England solo Renaissance
Germany in 6 draw World Influence
Athens 4 draw Greek City States
Zaire solo Africa
Iran 3 draw ModEX II

Option 2, but you'd have to have a LOT of points to bid with
