Resulting Fallacy
This article is about decision making in poker, but I think it equally applies to Diplomacy and well lots of other things too. I think a lot of players, including myself, fall into this trap of believing everything that works was a good decision and everything that doesn't was a bad one.

Brainstorming on getting more no-press live classic games
Arg! We had 6 for a no-press (i.e. no-chat) live game tonight, no cigar. And there haven't been a lot of no-press Many years ago, my FTF Dip crew had a similar problem ... some wanted and had time for no-press, others didn't, so we couldn't get 7 ... and we came up with a neat solution, which I'll share in a minute. But first ... anyone have advice on how we drum up support for a live no-press game?

Should have been ... haven't been a lot of live no-press classic games lately (just a few).

I notice a similar problem. My advice would be to start a game with a long sign-up deadline, so people can plan for it.

I've had most success on Thursday nights (CET). I don't know about other timezones.

Will do, I'll set up games called Silent Partners with lots of lead time (and then leave the game as soon as someone joins ... sometimes I'll rejoin, sometimes not, so that people don't know which games I'm in, per the anon rules). There seems to be a clump of live no-press players available late-ish on CET (European) time ... maybe 10pm (22:00) CET? There's another clump of players around 10pm Eastern US time. If anyone wants different times, post here or PM me (but don't tell me which games you'll be in, per anon rules).

How to deal with the problem of not enough players? Most full-press players just aren't going to be interested in no-press, but some might play, if they had an idea going in what to expect. Maybe we could ask people to offer commentary after each game that might be helpful to people who are thinking of getting started with no-press, and then post some of that here in the forum? Not sure.

I think we want to avoid giving a ton of information to prospective players, that's too much like homework. So, to people who don't usually play live no-press but who might, if you knew what you were getting into: what information would be helpful? For instance, would you like to know a rough breakdown of the openings you're likely to see?

I've only managed to get in on one live classic game (not counting FvA or GvI), and it took about 3-4 hours... Is that the about average for time commitment?

In the live games I've been in so far, press and no-press, most players were staying up late, and so most were quick-ish to agree to 3- and 4-ways draws, and one 5-way.

3-4 hours is a reasonable estimate for a live game, yes.

Oklahoma for Native Americans!
Oklahoma was cursed ever since it was stolen from the Native Americans. All the 'white' and 'brown' and 'black' and 'asian' folks (and any other non-native folks) should pack up and leave to texas or some place else and give it back. What say you?

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?
