New video series on Diplomacy
New project for me: Diplomacy Academy. Its still a bit rough as I'm working out the best way to execute in the format. I think there's some value to be had and its improving! https://goo.gl/yxGQbY

I'd recommend looking at the videos Triumvir (where is taht guy, anyway?) did. I think they're up on YouTube

Definitely worth checking them out.

I like what Triumvir was doing - I'm aiming to go a little deeper than the commentary I've seen (haven't watched them all).

I loved Triumvir's vids but I wish they were more topic-focused than game-focused.

Thanks for doing this. It is worth $3 a video to support this diplomacy project on Patreon. If you want to learn Diplomacy from a master, this small investment gives you a huge return.

Feedback on the last video, it wasnt clear to me who peter and john(?) were. It'd probably be easier to follow if you referred to them as Turkey and Austria.

Really great vids though, there were some nuggets there that I'm going to integrate into my play.

Aha, Apologies - I think you mean Chris Brand and Andrew Goff - Italy and Russia - I think I edited out the bit where I called them out specifically. Peter and David were labeled in the first video (I think?!?). Glad you enjoyed it and found it useful.

And if anyone wants to try their skills against some of these players, come out to a FtF (face to face) tournament. Each year they are in Boston, Chapel Hill NCarolina, Philadelphia, DC, Chicago, Vancouver, San Jose, Killington Vt, another in the midwest...

The rounds:
Round 1 - 9:00am Saturday, March 31
Round 2 - 6:00pm Saturday, March 31

I had the full schedule posted in a thread a month ago but I've got about 300 muted threads and 20 muted profiles and it's probably in one of them and I'm not willing to figure it out sorry. Maybe someone else can dig it up who remembers what I'm talking about...

If you can only attend one, make it WDC, October 5-7, in Washington DC. Otherwise, I'd suggest picking one that's close to your location.

What Defines A New Player?
Hey everyone i was just browsing the new games to see if there were anything interesting that i could join when i stumbled across a game that had the requirement of 'New Players Only' and i was wondering how to make 'New Player' quantifiable. What is the time between you join till you are considered not a 'New Player.' Or in essence are we all new players?

Why it is always German player
That never pushes ready in Gunboat games?
Like every single time if there is a player that saves his orders early on and waits 24 or 36 hours without pressing ready? Is there any rule that you should not slow game down? Or it is up to players if they want to iritate all others by making a retreat in full turn, and then disbanding the same army/fleet just after that in next full turn?
