Re: Two Tier Scoring

I dont like the idea that a two center difference (in the blog post version) could be dispositive - a 10, 11, 13 center board should not place the 13 center player in a separate tier

That said, SOS functionally does this, so maybe its not a big deal.

This is so tempting... Sadly I don't have time for another game right now. Or the energy to play HDV with you ;)

Full Press Holiday Game

I'd like to get a game in; any takers? Looking for players committed to a actively sending press in a full press game. Thinking SOS, anon, hdv, ~50d bet. Start this weekend or early next week.

No restrictions other than that you have finished a few games before.

Re: New full press game

I withdrew and if okay, will rejoin monday night or tuesday morning. Monday looks like sepulchural 15 hour workday and I wouldnt want to miss all your press.

Re: New big game

I think there is a slot left; Magnetic messaged me to say he is tied down for a while, and offered a slot in this game. I already committed to another game. I could plausibly do this one too but itd be a week - if theres another taker, maybe they can hop in?

Re: Luck Plays No Part in Diplomacy

Any game that involves tactical situations in which a player may break a stalemate line and win the game if they correctly choose one of three seemingly equally-meritorious moves involves luck. Diplomacy can involve these situations and accordingly is a game with luck. This is especially true since...
