Re: American Whiskey

A tad harsh, ssorenn. American whiskey ain't the best but I wouldn't describe it as laughable. I've heard it makes a very passable drain cleaner. That crap you call whiskey , may as well be paint thinner. Oh dear me, no. We call our stuff whisky, old chap. Whiskey is the slightly different name giv...

Why not participate, ssorenn?
Too Much of a requirement. No bandwidth for that many games. Besides, better chances for you to win. :)

EH Taylor has products around the same
Angels Envy Rye $75-80
BTAC $150 retail but super hard to find. $400-$1000 on second hand market
Heavens door $50-$80
Four Roses $40-$100

Re: American Whiskey

Michters , EH Taylor, anything from the BTAC collection if you want to splurge. Heavens Door, 4 Roses , Angels Envy Rye in an old fashion is amazing

Look for single barrel stuff , not small batch.

Re: Turkey is Overrated

I think Lepanto is overrated. :) For whom, A or I? If what people are saying is true (that the A/I alliance is bad for Italy, and he'd be better off attacking Austria)... well, that is *really* bad for Austria who is already in a rough place and cannot survive being attacked by Italy. But perhaps t...

Does this show the player list, or just for mods?

It is for me, but not sure if it's public-facing until I accept them. The full list will be known to everyone before the tournament starts.
If it’s just the top 49 by GR standards, why isn’t who signed up already public knowledge? Can you keep someone with the right criteria from playing?

Re: Has Diplomacy Regressed to Just Lying?

I have an issue with another form of what I would put in the honesty/dishonesty category. That is someone who copies and pastes your conversation and sends it to another player. This to me is the outside the normal realm of proper communication in this game. It really irks me something fierce! Whil...

Re: Has Diplomacy Regressed to Just Lying?

Some lies are needed, after all, you cannot have all six of your co-players (or 9 or even 16 in other versions) happy otherwise. But if I come to an alliance, I will not betray my ally. The opposite is a bitter cup to swallow, and this makes me sometimes to stay away from playing. While this may be...

Re: Has Diplomacy Regressed to Just Lying?

It is my opinion that integrity gets you further than lying in a general sense. I do believe that there are players who view this game as a lying contest. See what sticks and what doesn’t. Those people will never escalate their game to a higher level, unless they change. This game is built upon poss...

Re: Open European Championship 2019

No, I'm afraid this is a one-time event. EDC 2020 is in Milan. The next Dutch event could be anywhere, in a year from now. Shucks. I’ll be in Amsterdam on the 4-8th of November. Oh well We can try to set up a game if you have time. Would be a good warm-up event. Appreciate that, but not sure that’s...
