Hello:
I am looking at jumping into the moderating ring. With that in mind, I wanted to point so options to see what people might be interested in playing.

NOTE: I am still filling up my FC library, but getting there quickly. Most should should be available.

A FF demolition derby is a blast. Scoutdad has the rules.

I chose "The Great Race", just cause I'd like to do Combat Rally or somesuch as a player.

The only problem you're going to run into in a multi-sided game is break conditions.
Everytime a single player turns, accels, decels, launches, etc; you have to issue a break to every other player and await their responses... and if they do something that generates a break - it's lather, rinse, repeat.

For amultiplayer game you need people who can / will check email frequently and respond promptly. You also need players that realize there will be delays of this sort... and hopefully will provide SOPs that can encompass many of the typical breaks without asking for a specific break after every impulse of after every step of the impulse activity sequence.

Good Luck with the ganes and welcome to the world of FC PBEM moderating.
