Caricatures - Public Press game
This was one that we did a while back and I thought it was fun. A public press game where everyone assumes a stereotypical accent.

ie Austria-Hungary types like John Cleese in the phrase book skit "EYE vill nut boiy dis record, it is skretched".

Speak if you guys want. I know my first comment is: I have no idea how the hell I made this happen by pissing off all 3 of my initial enemies. This is a perfect example of how you CAN make something happen without allies...lol

no messaging games are not diplomacy
diplomacy is the art and practice of conducting negotiations between representatives of groups or states. you cant do that without contact. so why the hell are there so many anon no messaging games these days?

Daily +1 pyramid scheme
The rule is simple and laid out by zultar, our esteemed mod: you must +1 everyone who posts before you. Enjoy!

This is less of a pyramid scheme and more of a circle jerk.

1) It is endlessly sustainable as a limited group of players can endlessly post and +1 each other repeatedly without the need to recruit more into the group.
2) +1s are worthless beyond the gratification of seeing a meaningless number increment on your profile. This abuse of the system only further reinforces the meaninglessness of +1s. Nonetheless, some players find self-gratification in their "liked" count.
3) One does not need to "buy in" (+1 others) to reap the rewards of this scheme. For example, note that Zultar has only +1ed three posts ever (and likely none in this thread).

Actually, I did give a +1 in this thread. It was to the original OP. I followed the rules, ye. :)
dubmdell (556 D)

Indeed, yebellz, if everyone followed the rule (+1 every user, not post, before you) then this would be a pyramid scheme.

Although of interesting note is the discrepancy between Sarg and D33 near the top. Three have posted and not given +1 to D33 presumably because he is muted. KA, meanwhile, has only one less than zultar, which is the correct amount less he should have. Interesting what it says about mutes, no? KA in particular should be very proud of this development.

Why should I be proud of something that occurs over the internet? The amount of +1's I give or receive is not subject to pride nor to any other form of emotional attachment. People generally take party to entertain my ramblings a slight bit more than Diplomat. This is no profound event. I am much more easily ignored than forcibly muted.

What disgusts me is that my post in this thread, which I thought clearly showed that I did not give anyone a plus 1, has now gotten 7 +1s.

I don't know whether to feel ashamed or ingratiated.

This is the pyramid part, Taos, where we must recruit new user posts to the thread. Speaking of which, I have been denied a +1 by someone who gave zultar a +1 and not me. He should have one less, if the rule that he laid out is being followed.

Apples and oranges
I've seen a number of discussions on the forums recently comparing two positions or ideas that are too different to reach a valid conclusion about which is better. Since invalid comparisons are in vogue right now, I thought we might discuss the classic: apples vs oranges. Go!

For debate: When is a gunboat not really a gunboat?
Hey gang: I accidentally clicked onto a gunboat game and now have no real way of backing out. Others are not really being acquiescent about a Cancel, so it looks like I'm (more or less) stuck. So instead, I'm setting up this thread as a potential discussion spot for gameID=91706. If players are talking here, is it still gunboat?
