I don't know if anyone is interested in studying or analyzing things like that, but I am. When I was first starting to play diplomacy (back in, oh, February?), I immersed myself in reading all about the strategies and theories that people had written articles on. Since discovering this site (back in, oh, last week?) I've really come to enjoy the Ancient Med variant.
What are some of your favorite (mainly little-known, short-run) comics series?
My games are going south, so I have time for Forum jollies. I've had really good luck here soliciting ideas for TV shows to Netflix, so I'm trying to compile a list of interesting, oddball comic book titles that you've come across.
A Question, Doctor Who--And Sci-Fin In General--Fans:
The Terminator went back in time to kill Sarah and then John Connor. The Borg went back in time to stop First Contact and assimilate Earth. The Omega 13, for God's sake, allowed a do-over that let Tim Allen win. Why don't Doctor Who bad guys just travel back in time and kill him as a baby? (Also, wtf happened in this season finale...I'm STILL confused!) :p

(And for all you Ron Paul supporters out there...come on, THAT'S funny...and if Herman Cain gave a speech like tHAT, I'd vote for him...damn inspiring!) :p
Any other fans of the series interested in having a middle earth map for diplomacy? it is not on the to do list or planned at all, and i am just polling for thoughts on the topic. thoughts and ideas would be great, and if enough people want it then we can tell the mods and get it made, maybe.
Someone asked where there were Diplomacy variants, but since I didn't see an answer I thought I would post a link where there are a handful of Middle-Earth/LoTR variants. http://www.diplom.org/Online/variants3.html
So, it's election time in Ontario on Thursday (but more importantly the start of Hockey) and I'm embarrassingly uninformed so I'm spending today doing a bit of research. Any two cents from my fellow Ontarians?
Week 4, coming up...pick the games, NFL fans, and let's see who gets the most right!
We'll track it week to week, winner at the end of the year gets...a pat on the back as the unofficial NLF pick-meister of one thread of one forum on the Internet! ;) Now...ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?
