Re: circumcision

Obviously, the solution is for men to use make-up. We could just start with a bit of rouge on the cheeks and a touch of mascara.

It's the next logical step from groomed beards. Personally I'm waiting for social acceptance of groomed chest hair. We'll get there.

Re: Are aliens more likely to be extraterrestrial or interdimensional?

Perhaps we're talking about a parallel universe where aliens inhabit earth. They visit us through a portal. Would they be interdimensional but not extraterrestial?

Re: Lusthog!

I've played Lusthog more recently, with Jamie.

I'll take a spot on the reserve list as I'm in a lot of games right now.

I'll join Flight C only if absolutely necessary. Or if I've had two more beers. Whichever comes first.

Wrong. We can't change the map. Even if we tested it for one million games on vDip and everybody agreed it would be an improvement, we wouldn't change the map here. It's moot to talk about.

Re: Let's Fix Russia's Gunboat Woes

... On the Austrian side, I think Austria has to block Galicia on the first turn, but if you're able to take Greece in A01 (in other words, Italy isn't harassing or attacking you), Austria can certainly afford to let Russia have Galicia. Even if Russia makes the worst possible set of moves for Aust...

Re: Let's Fix Russia's Gunboat Woes

I agree that Germany should let Russia into Sweden more often. It's not a threat to Germany and it helps against a possible E/F. However, I feel we shouldn't discuss making Finland a supply centre. While an interesting idea, it just isn't going to happen. We can change the meta, but not the map. As ...

Re: Suggest an Awesome Opening!

Since I usually play gunboat... no. Lol. I don't think either of those openings does anything better than normal openings under the same premises. If Italy and Austria can trust each other enough to run those openings, I don't see why you wouldn't just, say, send Venice -> Tyrolia -> Bohemia and pl...

Hey all - I got the same country twice. I think this means others did as well.
Please don't discuss ongoing Guboats in the forum. Magnetic24 will handle the country shuffling.

Re: Suggest an Awesome Opening!

Conversely, any French players ever open to Pie, with the intention of continuing to Tyr? No, but I've opened to Pie with the intention of bouncing Italy. When that didn't happen, I kept on trucking. If I remember correctly. I'll try to find an example if I don't forget. Can't find an example, so i...

How old this tournaments should be in order to be considered?
I think at this moment we've been trying to look back two years. However, if you have had a good result at any FtF tournament in the past, just email us and we'll consider it.

Obviously the correct answer was North and South America, b...

are you from Western Europe, Claesar? :o That's the only way I see you afford 3/5 trips
Yes, I'm from the Netherlands. But I'm sure there's people in every country that could afford such.. It's only like €2000 a year.
