Message to All Players in This Game

Après quelques semaines perturbées par des interferences venant de mon travail principal, je peux me consacrer de nouveau normalement à la gestion des parties, et en particulier au lancement de la prochaine.
Les inscriptions sont donc ouvertes, la date de début sera fixée dès que 10 joueurs seront inscrits.
NB: Le paiement en ligne par Paypal est maintenant possible en Euros.

After some weeks which were somewhat perturbed by my main work, I can get back to launching new games.
The launching date of game 9 will be decided as soon as I have 10 players.
