Re: Does this English opening have a name?

What would you be promising Russia? He'll antagonize Germany, who will probably be getting two or three builds. Holding onto Denmark will be a lot of work too. You could use it with Russia opening North, to actually get long-term stable borders for an E/R Alliance by letting Russia have Norway with...

I think this genuine newspaper headline (from the Independent) far better surmises the "Nothing makes sense" attitude of the current parliament, tbh.

Re: Drawing is the new winning?

Having a history of occasionally two-way drawing can be of great use in Non-Anon games, where you can point to such examples to prove what a fantastically loyal ally you are. So from a (legal) meta perspective, there's certainly a reason to occasionally utilise them. But, far more importantly, there...

Re: Brexit

As an aside, just reading today's news. If there is a 3 month delay, and a decision not to be involved in the next round of EU Parliament elections (saving British tax payers money) and then there is another delay, you could end up with the UK still in the EU but unrepresented... There'd probably b...

Re: Spring 2018 Champions League

Congratulations to RoganJosh! That's now three tournaments, three different winners. Glad to see this is as competitive as I first envisaged, and that there's been plenty of high quality play and tight matchups throughout. And of course, a big thank you to Claesar for running this one so smoothly no...

Re: The mass exodus

Oh for sure, you can just change the name of the game/site to get around board game copyright rules, the million "Word Games" that totally aren't Scrabble that you can find online prove that. The problem is that, unlike Scrabble, Diplomacy is already a very niche board game, and making it harder to ...

It is already in the rules that the TD is allowed to post in Global chat to nudge people into hurrying up, if one game is falling far behind the others that round :P

Re: Latin American Disunity

In what sense? I'm aware how many refugees are in neighbouring nations to Syria, and am quite pleased with the contribution the UK has made to that. It's a shame more hasn't been done, but that's intentional diplomacy for you. Surely the goal is obvious? Get these people home. To do that you need p...

Re: Latin American Disunity

You're stretching the definition of Western Nation quite a bit there. Also I don't think it's getting much attention. Maybe in the US it's getting more, but that's just because they're the modern personification of Socialism going to hell in a handcart. Along with the Rohingya, they're the only ref...

When it comes to Latin American Disunity; the Federal Republic of Central America, the Peru-Bolivian Confederation, Gran Colombia, and the United Provinces of the Rio de la Plata all say hello. There's not been much unity since Bolivar's death. As for the current situation - it's an interesting ques...

Re: Is widespread dislike of Trump enough to propel a Democrat to Presidency?

The Democrats have already run one campaign on "not being Trump" and lost. If they do it again, they're either pure idiots or outright insane. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of madness, after all. The status quo sucked, which is why people ...

I appreciate the update on what I meant.
How many different things can you mean by "Lurking is shirking, and I'm usually down for lynch-a-lurk"?

Why did you just correct yourself about vig shooting instead of hammer lynching... In the exact same post as you made the previous suggestion?

Re: MAFIA XXXVIII: INFINITY WAR

Interesting kill. Looking back, doesn't seem like anyone was scumreading Vecna, so I guess it makes sense from that angle. He was getting into a bit of a spat with saying Bozo was obvscum (again, apparently) earlier though, which Bozo rose to the bait on. He also scumread Snowy (obviously), and xorx...

Hey Foxcastle, why have you just said you're down to lynch a lurker about BismarckAlive, and yet simultaneously given me a townread in the same post while acknowledging I've been lurking?
