    As soon as I read this this morning I knew I'd be Austria, and guess what!
    In the last game I played IRL, Austria utterly crushed me when I was Russia, so don't despair!
    Yeah, but I expect the Austrians and Russians to live a peaceful coexistence during this game.

    Question for Fillip. I take it from the interface that you are not warned of illegal moves so you need to be careful when selecting them?

    I wondered that too. Can I recommend googling any moves before doing them. Last time I played my plans were thwarted by an illegal move from Sweden to Norway by fleet. The rules are a big ambiguous whether i was able to make that move or not...

    Could I just ask if any in Game 1 are friends irl? I had assumed andytheadequate and Acid Snake were.
    Only know you from the Forza SMSs and everyone else via the forum.

    Illegal moves are illegal moves. If you submit them wrong then they won't be carried out and your unit holds. Don't forget there is a genuine tactic to illegal orders. Some people - not me - put in slightly incorrect orders so that they can keep the appearance of honouring an alliance. Perhaps offering support but then 'oh no', I've messed up my order.

    @mcgeeza You rammed me off the road in Forza once but I'm completely over it and had almost forgotten about it

    ;)

    I'd like to join in game 3 please. Had a quick look at the rules and it's not as complex as I feared.

    The complexity is on the discussions, not the game. The computer handles all of the complicated resolution of combat so even that is simple in online games.

    I've really enjoyed the discussions so far. I think I could be becoming addicted...

    In order to get game 3 off the ground I could possibly recruit my brother and another friend...
    Neither are EG forumites though, so feel free to say it's forum only. I haven't mentioned it to them, so it's not loss.

    Not as nice as I used to be

    I'd take part in game 3, but since I don't have net access at work (only on my phone) my turns would be purely outside of business hours.

    It works on your phone, that's all that I use.

    It's the answering and sending messages between turns that takes some time.

    A "Diplomatic Poo" for the office worker?

    I'll update the original post and send the details for game 3 once I get on the pc (too much hassle on my phone). We should have enough for a third game now

    Just sent a reminder. I'll open the slots up to someone else if there is no reply by tomorrow.

    Once everyone joins, an email will be sent asking everyone to confirm they are ready to start.

    1 space up for grabs in game 3, if anyone is interested. Everyone should have received the password by PM

    EG3 is filling up, woo. This'll be... confusing.

    Yeah EG3 might kick off before EG2 even.

    @alastair When you say 'actually play', do you mean the rules or using the site?

    Once it fills up, you can begin negotiating and making your orders, which you have 24 hours to do. Once the time runs out or you all finish, it resolves any movement and the next turn begins.

    It's worth reading up on the rules whilst there is a lull...

    Khanivor says he has now joined, who are we waiting for in game 2 now?

    Remember chaps, if you've finished all your moves, you can "finalize" them

    Yes. It's not immediately obvious where the finalize button is. It's under the orders tab.

    I'm just having fun chatting with all the people, no idea what I'm really doing :)

    @cubbymoore - I wasn't sure whether to take your message as an insult to my great nation, or (more likely), a friendly EG forumer having a bit of a giggle :)

    /prepares for tea and cupcakes

    There are quite a few interesting guides on the internet on things you should consider when making your moves if they help at all.

    I've yet to connect the forumites to the nations. I'm guessing you are France :D

    @cubbymoore - yep, I think it also tells you who everyone is when you view the game in Active Games. Although that's assuming people have the same username as on EG.

    And as DM says, the nations are on the first post if you ever want to check. Perhaps someone should do an end of turn/ end of year report so people know how awesome/terrible we are all doing, and who are the massive traitors...

    Well, going by history, it will probably be Italy!

    I'm saying nothing. But going by my chat log, someone is definitely going to renege on a shit load.
