27 Jul 17 UTC I would be fine with that.
27 Jul 17 UTC So france sets it up?
27 Jul 17 UTC Sure! Just give me a few hours. Also, let's see if Germany is in.
28 Jul 17 UTC Can we agree to start after the weekend or at least on Sunday? I will be completelly offline on Saturday.
28 Jul 17 UTC Monday or Tuesday would work best, since I'll be busy for a lot of the weekend.
28 Jul 17 UTC Same here, so that's great.
30 Jul 17 UTC Germany just confirmed its interest, so it will be the seven of us again. I'll set the game tomorrow, or later tonight, and everyone can join when possible, unless someone else wants to do this!

If no one else takes this task from me, I'll set the same specifics we used here.
31 Jul 17 UTC Would anyone else mind a smaller pot?
31 Jul 17 UTC I would be fine with a smaller pot. Honestly, even a 5 point bet would be fine with me. DId you have any specific number in mind?
31 Jul 17 UTC Haha you have 3k points!! ;-)
31 Jul 17 UTC I don't have a specific number in mind, I just feel like the big-pot games aren't as fun as the smaller ones.
31 Jul 17 UTC Even if it was a 10 point game I still would have eliminated you, choices and consequences and stuff. ;-p

I don't care about the point number btw. Did think it was funny to have the player with the most points asking for a lower pot. I'm joining whatever you guys settle on. This was a nice group of people to play with. I usually make my games 101+ points to weed out any new accounts.
31 Jul 17 UTC I personally never pay attention to bet or pot size after I join, so I'm happy with whatever.
31 Jul 17 UTC ckroberts, are you referring to games like this: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=182131#gamePanel ? (this one was indeed amazing)

If you wouldn't object, I'd like to keep bet size as it was. Not that I care about points (which I don't), but I always find it is good for webDip to have good quality FP games on the first 'games' page. I recall looking at featured games, as a young player, and certainly would have found it disheartening to find only GBs (or pacifist diplomacy) among the games shown as more important (new player tend to care for this; at least, I did). 111 points bets would already get us there, I guess.

Anyway, it can be a 5 point bet as well! Just let us know your number!
31 Jul 17 UTC We can do 143 again if it's a big deal!
31 Jul 17 UTC It totally isn't a big deal! Like, everyone is ok with whatever. I just pointed why I'd favour a not smaller pot, but I'd still much rather pick the bet you choose! We just need to know what your choice would be in objective numerical terms. :)
31 Jul 17 UTC I am open to anything, and if forced to suggest, I would say something like 51 or 101 or 111.
01 Aug 17 UTC I always like 143, because the number 1001 (the total pot) is just so pleasing, but I'm fine with anything over 20 points and under 500 :)
01 Aug 17 UTC Sent the game and password to everyone! Let me know if anyone didn't receive it. Also, take your time to join, that's why I chose the long join phase.
01 Aug 17 UTC 1001 points is aesthetically pleasing.
