A couple of weeks ago Kokusai Asset Management in Japan unloaded nearly $1 billion in Italian debt. The exodus of money from Europe is crippling a decrepit socialist system in Europe that survives on continual infusions of credit from outside Europe.
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.
