I'd like to start a high-quality game with players I haven't played before. I'd like to get people who are newer to the site involved, but veterans who I don't know are also OK. The game will be WTA and I'd like non-anon, but if people really want anon that's fine, too. I reserve the right not to be your friend : ) If Tallfred is still interested, I've reserved a spot for him.
I owe a good deal of my knowledge of prominent European cities to Diplomacy. I was curious as to how well my fellow diplomats would do. I challenge you to test your knowledge. http://www.travelpod.com/traveler-iq Post your scores and rage about how little you know of the African continent inside.
I think it's great that people love talking politics and philosphoy so much, but there is only so much of it I can handle. However, I do know we've got a lot of technologists here as well, so I thought I'd pilot a Tech/Sci spin-off of obi's infamous series. I'll try to find an interesting thing to talk about, which people can comment on, or you can share your own stuff.
All 16 teams are set! The Rangers and Blackhawks just squeak in, the Hurricanes and Stars jsut miss out, and all three California teams, the Kings, the sharks, and my Ducks, are in the playoffs...more Californian teams than Canadian teams! So...who'll defeat who, and when the dust settles, which team will get to drink from Lord Stanley's Cup this year? :D
Ovie is not a leader, Caps D are pushovers and unlike during the series against Rangers, whole Caps team played like a bunch individuals against Bolts. Knuble was a beast though, he should get the C ASAP.
And it speaks volumes about your team if its second best player in the series is someone like Neuvy.
My how things change...what happened last night and other two games previous is why Detroit is called Hockeytown folks. Watch and be amazed as history is about to be made. :D
“There are games that define what franchises have become. Game 6 Tuesday was a game that delineated the blueprint that has become the Detroit Red Wings… the professionalism, will to win and competitive spirit that drive this team forward.” Morris Dalla Costa, London Free Press
“While the Red Wings’ best players continually rose to the challenge, the Sharks’ big guns fell silent. Not only are the Sharks 0-for-10 on power plays during their three-game slide, their top two players — Joe Thornton and Patty Marleau — each have yet to score a goal in the series.” Rich Walcoff, San Francisco Examiner
“The only doubt now resides in San Jose, where the Sharks, perennial playoff disappointments, face the possibility of their biggest choke yet. Former Shark Jeremy Roenick just called Patrick Marleau ‘gutless’ on television. The Sharks all need to show some guts now.” Nicholas J. Cotsonika, Yahoo Sports
“If their confidence hasn’t been dented, it should be. Seeing a perennial championship contender such as Detroit come back with three straight wins should have any team shaking in its skates.” Pierre LeBrun, ESPN
“Now it’s up to the Sharks to disprove all the doubters that will cite perennial playoff disappointments, while the Red Wings have already shown the heart of a champion.” Scott Cullen, TSN
“Detroit has the momentum, Detroit has the Sharks on their heels, Detroit is on the verge of history…. And the Sharks are in full back pedal.” Tim Kawakami, San Jose Mercury News
“This is a matchup between a tested, Original Six franchise with four Stanley Cup rings since 1997 against the Chicago Cubs on ice. For Red Wings fans, this is the fun time of the year. For Sharks fans, it’s getting old.” Adrian Dater, Sports Illustrated
“At the moment, it’s difficult to debate San Jose’s status as the kings of playoff failure. The Sharks may be one loss away from cementing that reputation for all time.” Bob Duff, Vancouver Sun
What do you make of Huhne going off the deep end on the Tories? I think Cameron's crowd really made a mess of things by attacking the Libs for broken promises when those broken promises helped support the Tories in government. I think an election is likely. What say you?
Are there any varients of diplomacy where a unit, surrounded and not able to retreat, are captured rather than destroyed (perhaps to be used as future bargaining chips). I would think that would add alot to the game. Just curious.
So the thread about OBL has been dragging on with the two sides getting nowhere. I propose a fixed-alliance game of Diplomacy to solve it. On one side will be me, Invictus and Santa Clauswitz. On the other will be Darwyn, Sicarus and mapleleaf. The final unalligned player will be someone who hated the entire thread such as Sayjo or Siddhartha. My challenge has been put forth, I hope you all accept.
I can't find the email for the mods; one of our players hasn't been around for 5-6 days and our next league game has just started, we don't want him to miss out - could this be paused? Thanks heaps, I imagine he should be back sooner or later,
