If you post in this thread, you will be automatically *disqualified* from joining, I want the games to be as anonymous as possible, so everyone must PM if interested or with questions. More details within.
@MM I think people can tell who you are because you have a reputation as the best player on the site, and you clearly show yourself in game to be a good diplomat, you think through things a lot more, and you're much more talkative. It's very difficult for you to disguise yourself.
In one of my games, a player I had never been in a game with before figured out who I was after one message. It wasn't even all that long of a message. I don't get it. I can nearly never figure out who others are, even when I know the six other people in the anonymous game, I think I know and when it's over I'm shocked to see I have it all messed up. I quit trying to guess altogether, and wish people couldn't figure me out so easily, but at the same time I don't care too much since I can't not be me, so I just try to make do as best as I can.
PS - Please, those of you in my invitational, do not post if you are in the invitational, that was part of the deal we made for you to be in it (nobody is to know who's in and who isn't), that and to not talk about who is who within the game, it's taboo!
Babak, for the record, I have no problem with playing PPSC. If I'm trying to organize some sort of invitational or "high-profile" game I would not, but sometimes I'll join one or start one just for fun, though not very often these days.
I play both, but treat both as WTA because it's much more fun to try and organize a solo-stopper alliance in PPSC. I remember Indybroughton and I had a couple of pretty epic debates in the global chat during PPSC games about this.
Just thought I'd mention for anyone interested: The 11th episode of "DiplomacyCast", the Diplomacy podcast, came out last week. Check it out at www.diplomacycast.com or at www.facebook.com/DiplomacyCast
No, this is not a discussion on absolutes. It is an experiment. I wnt to play a diplomacy game in which all players must tell the truth, and nothing but the truth, to their fellow diplomats. I think it could make for a very interesting game. Lies by omission would be acceptable, and trying to mislead someone without lying is certainly encouraged. Would anyone else be interested in such a game?
OK, I'll Give Mr. Gingrich Credit Where Credit Is Due...
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/newt-gingrich-prepared-heat-immigration-043951171.html I DO think that's one of the more reasonable positions taken on immigration, especially by a GOP Candidate...never been a fan of Newt's, but he's at least now said one thing I genuinely agree with in these debates...that's one more than the rest of the GOP field...your take?
