Make it fair on TheDragon - TBert you Whimp - forget the baby and get your name down - it will give you something to do after the 3am feed.
Now WHY did it do THAT!

If at first you don't succeed - give up and have a coffee!

Tbert completes the set. Everyone go check your turn reports. Then check everyone else's!

Now I ned to work out a way to let you all submit orders I guess...

I think 'yes' seeing that I can't view my TR by pressing the 'View TR' button under the map or by following the link in the box where my gamaes are listed.

I'm glad you weren't discouraged by the long wait period, btw! :thumbsup:

Have fun playing WoK! :)

The link *should* work. If it doesn't please message me with what you see and what you do.

ALso, you should be able to view all turn reports, including your own, via the select box on the game page.


Good Luck.

Is everyone ready in this game? I know the deadline hasn't yet passed, but it feels like an age since I kicked it off...

The air in our house just went blue. Apparently your scholars are dragging their diplomatic heels so TheDragon is NOT ready yet.

Ok, I've got a new game. It's called see-what-we-can-do-to-Vortan's-homelife-while-investigating-the-potential-to-power-a-small-European-country.

Hey, TheDragon. I heard that everyone in the game was planning to gang up on you. Anyone who has signed a NAP with you is a NAP Breaker!*

My apologies on holding things up (I already sent a similar e-mail to TheDragon & Tbert) .... my holiday travelling has had more of an impact on my ability to take care of the pre-game planning that I had expected.

I will be returning home tomorrow, and will be ready by Saturday.

It's fun to see the different styles people use from anal retentive like me to the more 'messy' style from for instance Smashie (you've got 5 workers doing nothing Smashie!). And most players not using any of their spies on the first turn, which causes them to have to waste a lot of wok on building up EFF.

Anyway, it's nice to see all the different styles...have a look yourself!

Previous post was made BEFORE pain clinic put me on a morphine equivalent painkiller!

Thinking now rates as DIFFICULT, staying awake is bad enough but hey things hurt less so a lower attention span is ... err ... is ... what was I saying ... oh yes! A lower attention span is WORTH IT!

Will have to play fewer games. :shock: Did I really just say that :roll:

Bryk takes the game as a solo victory.

I'd be intersted in player feedback from this one, we were in effect testing out two possible rules variants. - LEV increases were spread among the troops, but also spy information was useless due to the pulished turns, so the spy province option was only useful for EFF. How much did people use these options?

A lot of dropouts ruined the game, unfortunately, as I was hoping there'd be more tactical fighting (no chance to hide resources, etc.). I'd be willing to have another try in a few months.

As for the LEV, I knew I wouldn't use it in this one and I don't think it left me disadvantaged.
