I only played two games. Got metagamed against in the first one and drew in the second. Wasn’t a terrible showing.

Yoyo, on the other hand...

metagamed in what way? I'm not calling you out, i just have never played ftf so im curious as to what can happen.

also, why do some ppl only play in 2 rounds?

@King, re: only playing two rounds

Could be many reasons, but among them chiefly is that there are quite a few people who have been doing FTF tournaments for decades and no longer feel compelled to play Diplomacy much if at all, but still fly out to the tournaments (or go to their local one) just to hang out and play other boardgames with their friends in the community. It's a very family-like, tight-knit group, and also there's always a couple other board games (usually Terraforming Mars) going on with TDs/Alternates(described above)/eliminated players.

Also sometimes your flight gets in late, etc etc. But I can name a couple people off the top of my head where it's a perennial joke that it's a "stab" when they have to bother playing a game since we're one short of a full board. And then they normally go on to do very well!

As my first time attending (watching not playing) it was a fun experience. Everyone in the community was welcoming and fun to interact with except for John Jamieson who felt the need to inform a group of us that he'd love to slit our throats open. But what's a good diplomacy meetup without some threats of physical violence.

Fantastic to meet you face to face folks! And even play the boardgame with some of you. You definitely have given me reasons to perhaps log on more often :-)
