Should there be a backup coordinator in each team, in case the main coordinator has some unexpected issue which prevents them from passing on their passwords to someone else in the team?

Don't worry; Hippo hasn't abandoned you yet.  He just fainted dead away when he saw the unstoppable power of the Mob's setup.  He'll come to in a few days to help with your vain attempt to salvage something from the wreckage of the Gang's position.

Don't worry Smiley coordinating the Gang is more important than the postal mixer games Smiley.  
We just waited for Jean's analysys of all games of U2 Smiley.
But now, we are well prepared to continue ... .
Seems you will be eager to lose quickly to be allowed to read the gang discussionSmiley.

Don't make TheMob angry.  You won't like us when we're angry.

There is something wrong with the time controll. Seems 21days is maximal reserve so we didn't gained by playing quickly ... Sad

When the game was The One vs. The Mob, we decided that having no maximum on reserve would unfairly advantage The One, who would be in a much better position to move quickly and gain reserve.  That's probably the reason the time control is what it is.
 
In any case, I don't particularly relish the possibility of either side getting three months in reserve and then using it.  (Of course, agreeing not to use extra reserve is the same as having a maximum reserve.)  It's already a pain to have to wait for a week between moves, although it is a necessary evil since that is how much time it takes to discuss.  If I had to wait three weeks between moves, potentially for several moves in a row while a large reserve was being drained, it would negatively impact my enjoyment of the game.
 
In short, I disagree that there is something wrong with the time control.  I like it just fine.
 
On the other hand, I feel kind of bad that you blundered so early due to a mistaken impression that it would gain you reserve.  I'm sorry about that.  Given how you have wrecked your position already, I would support giving The Gang a takeback and several more days to come up with a move that at least puts up a fight.  Certainly The Mob is going to win either way, but it will be more fun if it isn't too easy.

Actually we made a deal to pretend we moved too early by mistake.
 
The reality is, of course, we have already calculated that our chosen 2g is a forced win. We won't say in how many moves in order not to spoil your fun.

I voted for this setup, but my fellow Mobsters thought we needed to be a bit more subtle...

That was fast Smiley. Morever no gagngster predicted it. Seems our long term calculation does not work as expected Shocked. May be 38 was too much?

Really? I mean to disconcert you, but I thought both teams had an active double agent.
