Community Story
As the Hobbies thread seems to indicate, we have a few writers among us. Let's compose something together, shall we?

Rules: 1) Limit yourself from 1 to 3 sentences. 2) No double posts. If you make a typo, the next poster just has to roll with it. 3) No digs at other users. If I have to spell this one out explicitly for you, then don't bother posting in my thread. 4) Just have fun with it!

In all honesty
We tried this on vdip a while ago but It never really worked out, I still think its a cool concept though and was wondering if people here would like to try it. The idea is a classic game where you aren't allowed I lie. That doesn't mean you won't misdirect, or mislead people, but you can't outright lie.

How to get a sitter
My wife has reached full term and could go into labor any day now. So I figured I would go ahead and try and get sitters now while I have time (so that others don't have to wait later). The problem is I have no idea how the process works. What steps do I need to take?

Italian A Tyrolia to Munich has got to be one of the worst early game moves.
Unless this is carefully arranged bilaterally, I cannot possibly see any merit to this whatsoever. Yet I've been hit by it not once but multiple times recently, so clearly someone disagrees... so can someone tell me what the point of this move is?

Do people understand the meaning of diplomacy?
This is a very clever game, but I have to say there is a fine line between being diplomatic and lying your butt off, and I have to say I'm not impressed by the way some players play.

NEW GAME
Hi forum! I'm in two games right now and will drop down to 0 pretty soon. I'd like to start a new game with those interested. It will be:
WTA, non-anon (preferred), 2-day phases, 25 D buy-in. Please post interest below. I'll set up the game next week (likely), and if we generate enough interest, maybe multiple games.

Let's get things setup.

Join up . Please vote Pause as soon as the game starts.
Game 1 : gameID=83936
Game 2 : gameID=83937
Game 3 : gameID=83938

I've messaged the password to all of you and Geo. Also, do PM in you preference lists for the finals to him. For a quick recap on how the lists work, see threadID=799853 again, and post for clarifications here.

As before, join all three games at once (don't stagger). Remember to message Geo for queries after the games start, NOT me, because I'm playing as well. Any information leakage can and will be used against you :-D

Actually, if you guys would send them to lytle dot zack at gmail dot com that would be great. It appears some of your PMs rolled off before I'd ever logged on to read them. You can also send them to the webdip mod email if you prefer.
Geofram (245 D (B))
26 Mar 12 UTC
Bump. Please send your preferences to lytle dot zack at gmail dot com. I can get this done the moment everyone gets them into me. I'll send out emails to those that haven't by tonight.

Is it also possible to agree on finalizing orders? Because in the last round, it looked like 2 or 3 people wanted every turn to last for the full 1,5 day.

Not knowing exactly when these will finish, if they go into June I may need a week-long pause. Is that OK with everyone, assuming it becomes necessary?

So I'm doing this now.
Can someone explain to me what happens if two people have the same preferences in their list? The old thread doesn't seem to touch on this.

Say two players (One & Two) have AFR, Player (Three) is the only one that first-picked F, and Player (Four) is the only one that first-picked R.
So Three gets France
Four gets Russia
What do One and Two get?

Just a question. How did you decide to allocate nations? Because i got the one i called third for the second game (meaning absolutely dont want to have) in game three.
I thought the meaning of the system was to get the nations your good with, so if it doenst fit, why dont give one of the other nations?
In the other two games, i got what i asked for, so i dont want to complain to loudly, but because this go's against the meaning of the allocation, i do wonder if this was the only way to fix things.
Maettu (1727 D)
03 Apr 12 UTC
The problem is (and I already pointed that out in the semis), that the allocation is still quite a bit random if you are unlucky. For example, I got the nations ranked 1, 4 and 7 of my personal preference list in the semis (as average as it gets).I got the one I wanted least (and obviously put on the triple choice) in one of the games where I didn't even choose it, simply because the two I wrote down were already on somebody else' list, so we both didn't get them, and got a random one instead.
