Re: 8 Diplomacy Archetypes. Which type are you?

It's a curious video. How does one underestimate the error prone, strategically unaware and tactically dense rookie? From my perspective, there are those of us who've played this game enough to know what the "right moves" are. And for the most part, we play with the basic assumption that our oppone...

Re: Managing an Ally's Bad Diplomacy

Captain Tupelov Tupolev! TUPELOV! Was reading this again the other day and you are quite correct, sir... although, I feel it worth nothing that, in the book, the Konovalov is not destroyed by her own torpedos. Quite right! I believe the Konovalov is rammed to death by the Red October. Gonna pour on...

Re: Chaos game!

It would probably be helpful for you to post a link to the game here in the forum, so that other people can easily find and join it.

And welcome to the site and the game! If you ever have any questions or need help with anything, don't hesitate to ask. :)

Also, I'm hoping that in the final installment we get an instance of swordsman as stabbee, rather than stabber.
I completely agree! It would be nice to get a story of the Swordsman suffering as a mere mortal with the rest of us. ;)

Hey Abgemacht,

Though I've yet to have the privilege of drawing a seat at your table, I'm all the same glad to see such a fine cornerstone of the webDiplomacy family come home. It's good to have you, and I hope to get a chance to play with you soon.

Sláinte!

See, now I have this mental image of an NFL player holding a football sized jar full of green goo that has a "Coronavirus" label scrawled on it, and spiking it in the street while screaming, "WOO!

Dude, I love Public Press. But I'm in a tournament right now, and can't commit to any other game right now. 110% hit me up another time, and I promise you that you'll have another player. :)

Re: Managing an Ally's Bad Diplomacy

I'd like to piggyback on ATC's point about persuasion, perspective, and ultimately psychology. Now, I'm no psychologist, but I'm pretty sure that different people respond to different methods of persuasion...differently. So I think it's important to get to know who you're trying to persuade and mayb...

This looks fun, me and my friends have been dying to set one up but we never had enough people. I'm excited. Lol he can't join bc he knows me IRL so it would be metagaming. He's just being a butt :). Thank you for moving it to the correct place! I'm not available until the Masters Tournament ends. ...

Re: Genuine Wilson Game

Spring '01 I like the press! Very lively and the table really settled into a RP element quickly. It seems like the East is much chattier than the West. I still give the season's press award to Austria, though the Sublime Porte comes in at a close second for the sheer volume of posts (31, not countin...
