Re: American Whiskey

For a special occasion, Elmer T Lee Single barrel sour is delicious, but it's definitely more expensive and can be hard to find.

Re: Introducing Dark Mode

The check mark for saved but not readied orders is hard to distinguish from the Grey of the game's box in the top link section (not sure if that makes sense but hopefully you know what I mean). Not sure what an easy solution would be for this, but maybe a thin outline around the check mark of some h...

Re: Game Theory Games

Should've actually gone to con, i guess :) Also, the winner of the game is the one who gets the most solo's? Maybe there should be two winners, whoever gets the most solos and whoever has the highest average expected solo rate? Might be more complicated than it's worth, but for an extreme example, a...

Re: Game Theory Games

What would make this more diplomaticy themed is having it be a repeated game or allowing moves and scoring each round.

Anyways, for the sake of not splitting points with anyone, I'm building an army in con.

Re: Excused Missed Turns is inefficient ?

But we should all be prepared that they are gonna become more and more common. People are gonna view it as their "right" to delay the game a phase of two, for whatever reason. I was thinking about this the other day. I wonder if people are going to start using the delays as a tool for getting extra...

Re: Mentee Full Press Anonymous Game- 48 hour turns

I'd be keen to play, but I mostly do gunboat so if it turns out there are 8 players you can bump me.

Re: 1v1 practice

I don't think that I'll live up to Squigs' write up, (much in the same way I didn't live up to his play!) but here's my first write up. I'll try to match him for format. 1v1 Practice GvI 1 http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=242731#gamePanel Opponent: Squigs44 Title: Eastern Over-extension Spri...

Re: Making takeovers clear

However, in a non-anonymous game, how can I tell the name of the player that left? I don't know if it's the same player that rejoined. For the first take over, you can tell by the bet. If it now shows bet: 0, you know it's someone new as opposed to someone rejoining. (side note, is that considered ...

Re: 1v1 practice

I'd be interested! No promises on the skill front, since I'm also relatively new to 1v1, but I'd like to think I don't usually make glaring blunders, or that I can at least learn from them. I agree I'd be happy to have a meaningful amount of games on at a time. If it ends up being a ladder, maybe tw...

Re: Lusthog!

I'd be keen, if you're still looking for more players (and with the understanding I'm probably not as high on the skill totem pole). Depending on the bet size I don't have too many points, but I'll join as many as I have points for. You did say readying orders as the norm, right?

Re: Automated message for missed phases

Also, although unrelated, it's curious the forum says I joined May 9th, I've been here for a good while longer than that (23rd Jan 2011 according to my profile). I was inactive for a few years though, so maybe it reset my profile in the forum in the meanwhile?

Automated message for missed phases

Seems like it always says "GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders." even when the person missing a turn does not in fact have an excused missed turn and is now in CD. At least, that's ...
