I'm sure I can manage. I donb't have them immediately to hand, but could get them smartish. Whether I could get around to typing them in though is another matter.

2 moves a week is about all you ever manage with the board game anyway... this should give about enough time for e-mailed negotiations.

OK, so negotiations and alliances to be discussed by e-mail, or indeed IRC or dcc chat? Any rules or restrictions needed?

I'm in...

Also, if say, someone had to go on holiday or something, they must either surrender or nominate a surrogate player which would be announced by the server.

OK, countries decided randomly by the (non-participating) ref. who also collates the moves and mails everyone a list of who's playing and the current positions of all the pieces. Everyone can put them onto their own map if they so desire. (Mental noughtm and crosses is fun. Mental chess more so. Mental diplomacy... AAARGH!)
