Game with a Partner

Hi everyone,
with the next tournament in mind, I must confess that I never have played a multiplayer game with a partner :oops: . What's the mechanics of the game in this case? For example:
My partner would play his turn then he would send me the file
I would play my turn then I would send the file to opponent and so on...
Or my partner would play then he would send to opponent and so on...
Would I play with the order dialog or by the traditional way?
I see with interest the Club's MP section, Are there vacances in Bonaparte's Bane? how can I entry? :gallop:
Thanks and regards

As far as joining Bonaparte's Bane, all you need do is to ask, which you have now done in this forum topic. I will get you set up on the BB Webpage this weekend.

As far as multi-player games, the procedure is as follows:

1.) You receive the advanced game file from your opponents.
2.) Either you, or your partner completes the movement of his part of your army, and sends the unadvanced file to the other.
3.) The second player on your side completes the remainder of your side's movements, advances the file, and returns it to your opponents.
4.) The second player on your side should also send a copy of the unadvanced file to his partner so that his partner can see all the movements conducted in this turn.
5.) Your opponents should follow the same process and ultimately return an advanced file to your team as listed in Step 1 above.

You and your partner are free to discuss the game at any time, and in any depth, you choose in order to coordinate your tactics and strategy of the battle. The principle advantage of a multi-player game is that you have a partner who is equally engaged in the game with you, and with whom you can converse about the game. There also exists the opportunity for mentorship and learning to instruct others or improve your play.
