I noticed this is pretty old, but I came here to see if anyone is interested in a 1v1 PBEM game in Global 1940 so this is a perfect fit!

I haven't played with bids before so you'd have to explain that part to me. (Or send a link where I can read up on it.)
Tech I have no preference, thought I usually don't go for it much even if it's on.
