It doesn't look like my opponent is going to respond to my mails for play. What I'd recommend for new players next year is to go into Messages, Change Settings, and enable "Notify by email every time you receive a personal message".
There are a few people around like myself who have been involved as Nocturne play testers, and some other people might think that is an unfair advantage. How should that be handled? Should we play kingdoms without Nocturne if anyone is concerned?
