I am not too fluent in German at all... in fact, I have only taken 3 years of it. I would like to start a game in which only German can be spoken even considering my lack of German skills. I want to try to keep my skills sharp and possibly learn more of the language while playing an awesome game. Anyone interested?
So what are the "rules" about draws on this website? (Perhaps they change on whether the game is live or not). I ask because I apparently broke at least one. I received as a message: "f*** off and learn to play the way we play here or go somewhere else" because of this game: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=49130
Every political argument I have ever been to on this site, It has ended up boiling down to this, and the same points are made every time. Lets create this thread to reference them from now on. And so whenever this debate gets brought up in another topic. We can just link people here, and keep it all in one thread.
Look, clearly there is someone in the game who thinks they'd rather not draw. Drawing is not something we should discuss here as Lando has noted. But I think we can discuss whether we want a cancel. So I'm guess Jack what you mean is that you kinda want to cancel, but you'd rather draw.
If the problem is knowing who is who in the game I think a mod can look into this and post this info when the game is canceled. The problem of drawing instead of cancelling on principle is that people win points and GR points that are undeserved, and on my case probably lose some GR points without any reason. It isn´t a big problem and I could agree with a draw if someone give me a good argument, but I want to put this to discussion. And this game shouldn´t keep going so I also voted for a pause so we can decide if we cancel or draw. And now you guys know which country I am :-)
If you really care i can tell you who Germany is. I can also vouch for him. This is not like him and it would seem something problem has happened in his life that has made him unable to continue to check the site.
The only points changing hands is that we'd split Germany's points. Which I can't imagine there would be a problem.
As far as ghost ratings go... I personally don't play games with my GR in mind, so that isn't an argument that really bothers me one way or another. I'd like to see who was who in the game, and not have the game disappear down the memory hole.
@rdrivera, that is pretty vain of you. From the list of people that is in this game GR should not be an issue. I don't want Germany to get his points back. Well, we will play this out as England & France will benefit from the CD. Enjoy your SCs you don't deserve. I don't care about GR. I just play to have fun & let the chips fall where they may.
@Ike - First of all I said I don´t want to let the game keep going, voted pause and cancel , so please don´t accuse me to try to get some advantage out of it. I don´t play any game with GR on mind or any other thing other then having fun on the game and a lot of people here know me and could confirm you that. I just want to discuss a point and understand why people thinks it´s better a draw then a cancel on a game with a CD on 1903. Your point is you want to take Germany points, and I don´t think it´s a good point. I will probably vote for the draw but still want to hear what the other people have to say before ending this thread.
@Ava that was some crazy ass moves. I was hoping you would have taken that as a sign of friendship. As Turkey, I hate bring eaten up by A/I & thought I would try something different. Apparently so did you:)
I have recently ended up all my games without joining new ones to replace it, thus freeing up a lot of points. I would like to play a high-pot game (around 500) if possible with good players. Anyone up?
We're trying to get a game on oli http://www.vdiplomacy.com/board.php?gameID=440 copy the whole link and have a look. You don't have to join, but will be fun. Only for people who like to have fun in weird games.
http://leprecon.info/blog/ I've convinced the organisers to Leprecon to give me space for a diplomacy tournament! If anyone is in dublin, there will be an unspecified boardgame as the prize, it will cost €10 for the saturday or €15 for the weekend (lots of other games to play, but i'm hoping to get a proper multi-game tournament if i can get the numbers)
My wife and I are rapidly diminishing our stock of good hour-long TV dramas to order on Netflix, and I would love to have some new ideas. Any help would be appreciated. We don't love gore. Please no vampire-related suggestions unless they are better than Buffy seasons 1-3.
This is inspired by the "Mad Game", a board game that's kind of like monopoly, except the objective is to lose all your money and many of the squares on the board ask you to switch places with another player or trade assets with them.
