Re: [eia] I still have a problem

I believe that we wrote down the countries we wished to combine with, and
revealed them simultaneously.  Of course, things were less complicated,
since we never had 7 players, and this revelation was separate from other
political steps, such as DoW, not on one big escrow.  But I think that's how
we did it.

So are we going with Joel's "maximum wishes fulfilled" theory, or Ragnar's
"closed set" theory ?  It certainly makes a big difference this turn.
