From playing a bunch of live games here is how I *think* it works. Could people correct and/or clarify my myriad of assumptions listed below.

EOG [LIVE] GUNBOAT " Fun Unlimited" Edition

Congratulations to Chanakya. But Bob, what happened in the last move there? I had Munich covered, Bur could have saved Mar, and Portugal was not in danger? I don't understand. We were just one turn away from drawing.

I saw this wonderful news article on the BBC and I thought it was worth sharing - not only because it's so ridiculous it's comedic but also because it reminded me of our resident Swede, Vaft :)

Marxism
Marxism is fundamentally a theory of history which should entail a commitment to social change; that is, a commitment to a socialist future in which the forces of production are not owned privately as they are in capitalist societies but under common ownership.

PW Gunboat 5 Point Challenges
Would anyone like to join me for some passworded 5 D gunboat games? I'd like to get as many people involved as possible for some fun gunboat games not orientated on points but that are still good quality. Add your name to the list if you're interested please. All games will be anonymous and 25 hour phase length, thank you.

Seeing as the 5 D Gunboat Challenge idea has become so popular I thought I would put a bit more work in to making it special so I created a public spreadsheet, with a full roster, useful information, and full reference of game information, including participants and game links.

Can you guys take a look and tell me what you think? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ahqo1LZRcrZxdGF6SXFDMzRFdDFtMlhRNjBIMW8tOXc#gid=0

It's the first time I've ever made one - I would like to get it as professional-looking as Geofram's gunboat tournament spreadsheet (https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?hl=en_US&key=0AnO6yyQ1Ewj7dG9SWmtmYlBDVUVuU1dRczVJZGJUSUE&hl=en_US&gid=1) but I still have some things to learn until then. Perhaps if someone has more knowledge on these things, they may want to help?

If interest carries on, I think it might be fun to make the 5 D Gunboat Challenge into an informal gunboat league series. Would you guys be interested if that was happening?

"Would be neat if you could put a roster for each match."

Oh. That's on Sheet 2. It's not the easiest thing to see though - which is why I like Geofram's spreadsheet for having it at the top - but I don't know how to do that at the moment...

Hey, Sarg. In another thread, KiNg of diPloMacY indicated he was about to stop submitting orders in all his games. It looks like he's involved in a couple of these games. I'm worried we're going to see a couple CDs soon if he isn't replaced. Is there any way we could replace him before his first NMR (which, I'm guessing, will otherwise happen in about 12 hours), since he's already indicated his intention of leaving. I'd hate to see one player's flakiness ruin what are otherwise some really good games.

Thanks a lot for setting this up. I'm really enjoying the two games I'm playing.
Sargmacher (0 D X)
22 Mar 12 UTC
Santacaris: It seems KiNg's dramatic crisis was actually averted: he will not be abandoning the games. Don't worry, I had a check on it as soon as it came up on the radar. Thanks for your input though!

Hey Sarg, is there a way that we can flag players who NMR/CD and decrease their likelihood of playing against those of us who, uh, prefer games without NMR/CD?
ulytau (541 D)
24 Mar 12 UTC
^ this – this times thousand.
Sargmacher (0 D X)
24 Mar 12 UTC
Yes. That is why I would like games with CD players in to be drawn, rather than cancelled. Then, the games are logged and I can update the list with a flag saying that they are a player who CDs. These games are only for 5 D so I think drawing rather than cancelling should not be an issue.

If you have a CD in your game, vote draw - then we can flag.
ulytau (541 D)
24 Mar 12 UTC
I agree, good I didn't succumb to peer pressure and withheld cancel for draw.

ultytau, sancatacaris: I will have to send out a message to everyone involved in Game 4 - unfortunately whoever is playing for England simply is not getting the message regarding sportsmanship.

How do we need to flag an NMR? Can we edit the spreadsheet to flag a country in a particular game, then that player when countries are revealed post-game? Or should we just post here, "Game X, Country Name?"

Can we reconstitute game 4 with someone else in the King's place? That was a fun game till he NMRed. What a tool.
