1901 Country Assignments
Does anybody else constantly get assigned the same country or countries? I've entered into maybe 15 games and every time but one, have been assigned either England, Germany, or Russia.

(Note: this is not a complaint--I'll never bemoan a free game of Diplomacy!!! Just curious :-)

Game Start Date - any way to know?
I know you can see the date a game finished, but is there a way to look and see when it started? I am curious to see how long a game took to finish in real time.

I looked for this for a while, so I'm the dunce if someone immediately points this out...

I also have an oven story
Accidentally hit Clean a few days ago. Cancelled it because there were things in the oven. Haven't been able to open it since. Have had it unplugged for 24 hours, hoping the electromagnet that allegedly locks it loses strength soon. Will update as warranted.

Erector sets
How many Webdippers remember Erector sets? Or for that matter, Lincoln Logs and Tinker Toys? Of course, I expect the usual 90% comedy answers, the real reason I ask.

Two players from one IP?
Is it allowed to have two players playing from the same household - in different games? I know they cannot join games together, and that is fine with me, but can two players from the same household play different games?

Thanks! Don't want to be banned accidentally.

NHL sucks
I honestly challenge anyone who obviously knows nothing about hockey to keep high morale when the refs are literally maliciously trying to throw the game. I've never seen worse reffing in a series, and anyone who doesn't realize these are humans that actually get effected when the ref delibrately tries to blow a series against your team, should realize that it makes your team feel like they are skating though glue.

How can I become a crappier person
I have recently been told that I am funny, kinda weird, a stalker, spammy, and an artistic twat. Do you fellows at WebDiplomacy observe these traits about me? How can I become the worst me possible? What tips and advice can you offer? How can I become a shit human? This is a serious thread and I want to become even worse than I am.

Draws are for sissies. Who would like to join me in a game where, by agreement of all participants, no "Draw" votes shall be permitted?

I think it'll be fun.

I probably won't join, but what happens if you have a stalemate line? Everyone loses if no SC changes hand for 2 year?

I have created a game, then:

gameID=196362

PM me for password.
Confused how Jamiet has no idea what lusthog is
Jamiet99uk (60 D)
18 Apr 17 UTC
I saw a post about it once but I've never played. Is it just "you can't vote draw" or is there more than that?
Lusthog is you can't vote draw...unless a stalemate line has been held for at least a year. Avoid the, waiting for someone to CD strategy, which will happen under your rule set
Lusthog is also no-press, isn't it?
Gen. Lee (7688 D (B))
18 Apr 17 UTC
That's why he wants to play lustfrog
Gen. Lee (7688 D (B))
18 Apr 17 UTC
But if it's not draw after 2 years stalemate then we should put a year time limit on it. 1925 or something.
Jamiet99uk (60 D)
18 Apr 17 UTC
I would propose that voting draw is acceptable *only* after two complete years in which both of the following are true:

1. No SCs change hands.
2. There are no retreats.
3. There are no builds.

How's that?

You discover a map to buried treasure
There is a catch. While visiting neighors you find the map in the hands of their infant son. The treasure is likely real as youd heard of the map and its fabled promise. The problem is not just that a child is holding the map- its that the family desperately would need the treasure to pay off their debts or they may end up on the streets starving. However you also know the babys mother and father gamble, drink and are rather unsavory. What do you do?
