- Thanks for waiting for my move. I am back in the states now and should be good for one play a day during the week and more on the weekends

Just to make sure we are agreeing on the game, I suggest that we use the following -
- WBC Historical Scenario (VASSAL WBC 12 setup I think is the correct one)
- Use supply warnings

I will start with the first card waiting your response.
