Long Phases, Lazy Players, Public Press Shenanigans Galore

#1 Post by e.m.c^42 » Mon Oct 19, 2020 10:01 pm

Do you find yourself vaguely wanting to spam press messages and play diplomacy, but haven't the free time to commit for a full press game? Want to play a board of cunning deceptions, but can't be arsed sending individualised press to separate players?

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 that's about to start for you.

With 10 day long phase lengths, 5 point buy-in, understandable numbers of excused delays, and public press, this shall fulfill your every desire as a pursuer of the eminent lazy diplomat's life.

Our players are currently:

Me! — 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

which leaves you, and you! :D

Indicate interest with a reply, and if we fill I'll create the game.

Can you post the link once made so we can watch this peak of nonsense?

But first we need two more players - would you be willing? :p

I wish I could, but I'm afraid I don't think I have time even for a 10-day phase if it involves press. (Also, the only other 10-day phase I've played I made me want to tear my brain out.)

Are there any press-quirky requirements? Such as: Every sentence of pressing must begin with subsequent letters of the English (American) alphabet? Or that hidden messages are required in dull paragraphs? Or that implied rhyming must be discernable?

For the record, commentary from the peanut galleria is not only welcome, but encouraged. Because stupidity of this magnitude demands to be witnessed.

Would love to join, but sadly the "you and you" offer lasted only a few hours... :)

Well, there's certainly nothing stopping you from yelling messages at us from the peanut gallery ;)

Since it's public press, if we respond it'll be easily visible.

This is going to be the dumbest game ever, and I'm all for that.
