I was running a campaign called ESCALATION!

We were down to the semi-final games when I got side-tracked by development of ACTASF. I intend ot email the final 4 participants next week to see if they are interested in completing the event. If so, then I've got another 3 to 4 months of PBEM to moderate.
If not, I may be looking to start another game or two in the next two to three weeks.

Scoutdad,

Do you use the mapmaker tool on the PBEM site? If so, which version of python is best 2.7 or 3.3?

Thx

Nicole/Matt,

If scoutdad won't be available for a few months, I can give moderating a try. Let me know if you're interested and willing to deal with my growing pains as a moderator.

Actually... I use CorelDraw for mapmaking and Excel/open Office for tracking turn activities...
Here's an exampe of the mid-game map:


And the excel sheet for movement plotting:


And the excel sheet for impulse activities:

I imported the standard PDF map into CorelDraw.
As for the counters, most of them are cut and pasted from the e-packs or scans of the existing counter sheets.

The expendables (Drones, Drone Flights, Plasmas, and Shuttles) were created by me for use in teh games.

Hello All, what is the average rate of play in email games? Do they last a day? a month? a year?
Kind Regards,
Sebastian
