Peanut Gallery LPLPPPS (#noregrets)

#1 Post by e.m.c^42 » Tue Oct 20, 2020 2:59 pm

Handily plagiarised from myself;

Do you find yourself vaguely wanting to throw popcorn and yell at other fools playing diplomacy, because you haven't the free time to commit for a full press game? Want to savour a board of cunning deceptions, but can't be arsed contacting individual players to find out what happens behind the scenes?

Or perhaps, secretly deep down, you sometimes find yourself afflicted with a repulsive curiosity; the ghastly urge of wanting to read vaguely erotic Chaqa&Chipotle stories—

If so, there's the perfect game for you to peanut gallery! The players can even talk back to you, from the wonderful global chat.

Spectate here: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=328000

Our players are:

EMC! — Mediocre yet floridly loquacious regardless
Chaqa! — Of the impressively strategic, yet incredibly stoned orders
Matticus13! — With his mysterious moves of knowledge
Yigg! — The public press master, may his lovely words caress our eyes
NEFS! — Of live game renown, stabbity poke poke #winning
Le Plume! — From the yonder days of old-school cool
uber! — Who hates all capitalisations of his name, so don't do it

As this is pregame; my first bet is, this game will go on to 2021 at the very least.

I will certainly try to last until 2022, but don't know if my strategy is strong enough for that, lol

Let's say we take 10 days for every phase. Each year will be a minimum of 20 days (Spring and Autumn), and we will almost certainly have a builds phase every year. Likely one retreat phase at a minimum per year, maybe more.

On average, each year of the game will likely be be around 35-40 days.

35 days per year, if this game goes to 1910, then it's a 350 day game, minimum.

There are 438 days until 2022. That means we'd on average need about 12.5 years of gameplay, conservatively.

So, this game could theoretically go to 2022, if not further, assuming we really do take full length every time (which seems unlikely).

Hot take: this game will end when covid ends lmao

Points Per Superb Chipotle?

@Emc - we should keep track of random stats of this game, like:
- how many mafia games happened during it
- how many times did Chaqa go to Chipotle
- how many times did EMC make an erotica

etc..

Certainly, all those spectators need something to do other than criticising my moves.

Looking at the in-game global, you all seem to be able to start in a nice and funny way. England, France and Italy can all self-bounce in an open province, Germany, Austria and Turkey can go on a roundabout (as Austria already suggested to Turkey), only poor Russia cant do a funny move that envolves all of his units :(

You should let the poor guy solo to balance this injustice.

So, are we competing in who can predict the most moves? Three units per round? For S1901, predict A Mar, A Ven, and F Lon?

Participants of the game are also allowed to guess, of course.

A Ven - Tri
A Mar - Pie
F Lon - ENG
