GENEVA: OK, so after a few hassles (including one potential player managing to identify himself via a mailing list posting), we now have seven names and are ready to start. I'll send a more detailed game-start to the players, so that they know which country they are playing in each of the seven games.

The deadline for Spring 1901 orders is FRIDAY, 14st FEBRUARY, 2014, to Peter Sullivan, peter@burdonvale.co.uk. I'm not sure if having a Spring 1901 deadline on Valentine's Day is ironic, post-ironic or whatever. But as usual with Gunboat, if I have all the orders in earlier, I'll adjudicate earlier.

Houserules for this game are at http://www.burdonvale.co.uk/octopus/gunboat.html

That was Octopus's Garden #86, Startling Press production number 373.
