Writing a book
Has anyone here written a book? Once I finish another project I am working on, I am mulling over writing a biography of a secondary figure from the early American Republic. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with publishing a manuscript before.

Like what? Don't answer that. We're not supposed to talk about in-progress gunboats while you are playing them.

Well well well, Draugnar, what a conservative reaction from you.

But i do not always agree with the rule. I always find it very entertaining to look at games to see if i can understand the cheating accusation. And in case of very obvious cheating, i value the entertaining aspect more then the player protection aspect.

Another point, i think sharing very obvious cheating cases can have an 'educational' value for all the players, and nobody will talk about the hampered games the moment it is resolved, weeks after the games end.

Having said all this, i did not automaticaly classified this game as example of very obvious cheating, that would be an cheating accusation and against the rules :)

Share them after they are confirmed. Then it isn't an accusation and is, instead, an educational example. As far as obvious... The number of n00bs who jump on here from a gunboat and scream "they helped it other! They are obviously cheating!" because they are n00bs and don't understand the subtlties of gunboat is astounding sometimes. But they thought it was obvious. So who decides what is and isn't obvious. Obvious to one observer may be completely logical to another.

Finally, saying there is "something fishy" is a form of accusation. You are saying something isn't kosher with the game which means someone in the game is making it not kosher which, by extension, means someone is cheating. The saving grace was that you didn't mention which countries you suspect...

Rule question! Retreat edition!
Just looking for a quick reminder (I'm still working the rust out of my long absence). If Austria's Vienna Army supports its Army in Bohemia to Tyrolia and Italy moves its Tyrolia army to Bohemia, can an Austrian Army dislodged from Silesia retreat to Bohemia?

A couple of questions about American courts.
In the UK, when a jury has a verdict the judge asks them what the verdict is and they say it out loud. In the 'States, once a jury reaches a verdict, they write it down on a piece of paper and hand it to the judge, He or she reads it and then hands it back and someone in the jury reads it out.

Why do they hand it to the judge first? What does this achieve?

The Biggest Threat To Liberty is _____ (?)
I say a Lack of Education:
It was with more education we got out of the Stone Ages and into the Greco-Roman era...and then when education made a comeback, we had the Renaissance...and then the Englightenment...and then Civil Rights/Suffrage movements...cured diseases, more production...but currently my home state is 48th in education and the West is most of my doctors ARE from India...what's your take? Biggest threat is...what?

Probably not new game play idea, maybe for tourneys
Is there a tourney here that we could do a Triple vs Triple deal with a rogue Italy? I think if we have enough players that would be a fun thing to do. I think best would be 7 players or 49. Could be fun. Let me know if anyone is interested or has a way to make it a better idea.
