By within the hour I'm sure you mean 2 weeks from now.

Can't PM you right now since I only have my cellphone with me (travel for work).

Anyway, you know my team!

So we still have 11 open spots and I even let in all the newcomers that asked. If someone wants to PM some of our regulars, feel free to do so.

Are we waiting for all 30 gms before the game starts? And I know the other gm game forming has about 8 that we could include

Wrong thread.

I assume trading isn't open until all 30 spots are filled?

Correct, but you can still discuss trades before the game starts. But there are a few first time players that don't know the very specific rules of the game so I'd recommend reading up on past games, such as this thread.

As it stands now we still have 11 spots open and I'm very leery of adding in even more first timers. Not sure if we can go through with the game at this point.

While I understand the hesitation at adding more first timers, isn't a game with lots of new faces better than no game at all? Plus a few of them (myself included) are new to this set of games, but not GM games in general.

No, I'd rather have no game. Seriously, I've had games where I add in 2 or 3 newcomers and the whole thing is a ****storm. Other GM game experience literally means nothing when it comes to my games.

I mean that's not saying all newcomers are going to be terrible GMs, obviously that's not the case otherwise my game wouldn't have grown so much over the past 4 years, but if more than a couple people are learning the game at the same time it just gets too crazy. I've had a lot of users that I didn't allow in for several consecutive games (which has given me a bad rap) but when I finally let them in, some of them stick and some of them don't. It just needs to be done a little at a time and like I said, the amount of new ones I added already are more than I usually let in.

I totally understand. Trust me, I know how crazy these games can get, but I think this is worth doing. It's been too long since we've had a true, 30 team GM game going.

(Side note: If anyone is planning on moving a goalie better than Niemi, PM me)

I'm sure some other vets would be interested to join but they don't come to this board at this time of the year.

I'll try to PM some of them when I will have some time.

I could really use some depth wingers. PM me if you have any.

Niemi, Clowe, Demers, and Braun all will be shopped.

Release the hounds! The regulars here are busy trying to have a life away from hockey... But we won't allow that! Drag them back here, by any means necessary.

We're ready to talk trades, and of course a centre and a goalie are at the top of our list. We're open to most anything, and draft picks would be nice. Inquire within.

And insofar as high numbers of rookie GM's go, one or two can be ok, more than that can be an all-out gong show. They don't follow protocol, don't read the rules, and make 30-40 trades with no real structure as to what they're doing. Realism is nice in these games to some degree.

PM sent to 20 guys! I'm confident that we will be able to start the game soon enough.
