The Greatest Musical Act Tournament: Broup A: 1600s-1960
And so we begin The Greatest Musical Act Tournament with Group A...or, as every group will be called here, "The Group of Death" (as the World Cup has taught me that's the only name to give to any group ever.) :p How will the Great Composers fare? Which immortal band or act will bring about the most outrage? Who will Team Vergil pull for THIS time...while Shakespeare sulks in the corner, STILL wondering how he lost...TWICE. :p Here we go!
I will start taking signups for the tournament. Here's how it will be different:
There will be a cash buy-in. The amount depends on the number of people that can commit (and buy-in) to the tourney. If I can get at least 25 players, the buy-in is $10. This would allow me to use the proceeds to purchase plaques for the top 3 places and best country awards. The remainder ($50-$100) would go to the site as a donation for allowing us to put together this tournament.
So...um...we start Week 3 a little late...but as the Falcons just proved everyone who thought the Bucs had even a chance of being good this year 56 kinds of wrong, no harm done. ;) The 2-0 Bills take on the 1-1 Chargers in a game that could be better than it has any right to be, Peyton looks for redemption vs. Richard "Totally Not Exposed" Sherman and the Seahawks, and my Niners attempt to rebound from...ahem...Romo-ing on SNF vs. the Bears. Week 3...Pick 'em!!!
Hello lovely community, it's been years since I've played a gunboat match but I'm craving one again. However I know I'm going to be away a weekend soon, what are the official or unwritten rules so to speak on Gunboat pausing? Is it reliable if I want some time away, or shall I wait until I get back before starting a new game? Advice would be lovely. Thanks :)

I'm a teacher and I'm currently introducing one of my favorite students to Diplomacy. To avoid metagaming, I'd like to start a Classic game in which all the players are just starting out and want a place to feel free to ask questions and generally be a little less intense than usual. The game link is here: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=147658 The password is "new".
So, my cousin, who is about 5 years younger than me, dropped dead today....literally. Shocking, horrible...I'm a bit traumatized. I have vilified Facebook in the past for various reasons...and yet today found comfort in the ability to share his life, to explore his life through his page, and grieve instantly with friends and family near and far. So what are your thoughts about Facebook in this respect?
As we're getting to results I thought I'd put up a thread for the final scores. Frankly as it wasn't really intended to be serious, I never thought about putting a scoring system together across the 7 games, but if anyone is that bothered, they're welcome to do so!
With The Boroughs Face to Face less than a month away (have you registered?) I thought it would be fun to see how well people know the Diplomacy board. Post your results here. No cheating! http://www.sporcle.com/games/g/diplomacyprovinces
