Re: Into the new ways of things

And a warm hello to you, too!

I hope you get in a game soon, though if Public Press is something you're down with, I could probably hook that up for you sooner rather than later.

In any case, welcome back! It's good to have you.

Sláinte!

Re: Very superstitious

Superstition ain't the way! Stevie Wonder aside, are you talking about a lucky charm as in a certain move set? A style of press, or a thing you do in press every time? You're not talking about, like, dangling a rabbit's foot off the corner of your monitor or anything like that, right? This could be ...

Re: What are you reading?

I'm reading the first Altered Carbon, by Richard K. Morgan. I saw the trailer for the Netflix show, so naturally I went out and got the book.

Play Wilsonian With Me!

If you think you'd enjoy a Wilsonian game, or just feel like playing with me because we had a good game before, check it out! It's set up for 2 Day turns for lively time to...

I would be more than willing to either function as a Mentor for this game, or as a player (because I can always be a better Yigg). You are welcome to use me as best you see fit.

Re: Diplomacy club

I would have to second the notion that you'd want a Teacher or Staff member to champion your cause. If you don't have an idea who to ask, depending on who they are, a good place to start might be your school Librarian. A typical Librarian is no big fan of censorship and blocking, a fan of history, a...

Re: Colonial Diplomacy: The OG variant

This is also a favorite of mine. Maybe it's the nostalgia of playing a lot of it in the mid 90's, but I loved it imbalance and all. It's a gorgeous board, which of course doesn't translate here on webDip, but still. I'd sooner play this than any other variant, honestly.

Re: Drawing is the new winning?

My involvement in this hobby came from a place where fellow wargamers would get together to play a game. There were no points to be had or scores to maintain, just the thrill of fight and the braggadocio to be had. So the debate of point systems has always felt foreign and irrelevant to me. What I'v...

Re: Is it still Diplomacy if there is no press?

I've played a number of gunboat games, and I've done poorly in all of them. While I have faith in my tactical and strategic ability, but it's not helped me at all. I think my game relies heavily on the human interaction part. So much so that, in its absence, I struggle.

Re: Very unsportsmanlike conduct

I find the psychology involved in press tactics to be endlessly fascinating. When you break it down, that psychological and communications element is at the core of the game (save gunboat). What you say, how you say it, and when are all means to an end. Entering your press is just as important as en...
