But not too good, 'cause that's not fun. Lol.
5 5/11/2020 12:33:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hello Tom,
I am playing from Germany. My rate of play varies quite a bit, but I try to do two moves a day. At the beginning as the Japanese it can take a lot longer.

So, I accept your bid. Playing the Allies with 2 is too risky.

Let's have a fun game without too many bad moves on both sides.

Frank

Assuming we'll share Vassal files using Drobox. If not let me know what you prefer.

I'm on east coast time, in S. Carolina and can usually get in a card play or two a day

I'll bid 1 to be the white hats, i.e. the U.S.
