Here is what I see is the problem with PBEM (without modifications)...

Scenario 1-
Germany (who normally begins with the most cards; sometimes double the
other players): Play card
UK: Pass
USSR: Pass

Germany: Play card
UK: Pass
USSR: Pass

continue for several rounds...

Each "pass" requires a decision point (and an email delay) from the

Scenario 2-
House Rule: Each player may only "pass" once. The player who begins the
turn with the most cards (usually Germany) begins play. He plays a
number of cards in succession until he has an equal number of cards to
the next largest hand. At that point, roll for the starting player and
player order.

Any thoughts?
