I just wanted to make sure everyone knew that there was a really interesting and fun sight to webdiplomacy called vdiplomacy.net. It is a sight deticated to diplomacy variants, and I would lI've to see more players on it. So go check it out! www.vdiplomacy.net
Hey, though I'd just give this a shot, see if anyone would actually have this information? Does anyone know where (preferably on the internet or in an easily obtainable book) I could find the record of votes in the British parliament. I assume it wouldn't be too hard to find the votes of the past few years, but I'm looking for votes from 1801-1899. Any ideas? I'm working on my thesis, and having a little trouble. Thanks
Basically, someone posts a situation, then the next poster says if they would do it and why, then post a new situation. Im bringing back an old post that i found rly funny :D Il start: would you rather get assaulted by 2 shop keepers beating you with stale, rock hard baguettes or fly out of an airplane, with no parachute...BUT, you bang ANYONE you wish as you fall ?
The names next to the rules are of the people who came up with them. Feel free to add or whatever. I'll keep a running tab on what to add and re-post them every so often if people what me to.
For the Forums:
Chug a beer whenever someone asks if we’ve heard of Vdip. (Abgemacht) Take a shot for every time some posts a thread for a live game. (Celticfox) Take a shot every time TC posts POOF or some variant of such (2ndWhiteLine) Take a shot every time asks if someone is new; take 2 if that person is actually new. (2ndWhiteLine) Take a shot every time Draugner leaves the site and then comes back (Variant on Abgemacht’s idea) Take a shot every time President Eden post a .gif or .jpeg (Thucydides) Drink a glass of wine for every EOG thread (Celticfox) Drink for X seconds where X is your peak ghost-rating (Geofram) Take a shot for every thread that mentions other threads in it. If multiple thread are mentioned then multiple shots are taken. Additionally if a thread is self referencing itself or 2 threads going back and forth to abuse this rule then thread creator takes as many shots as links are posted as punishment. (Celticfox) Take a shot for every thread complaining about NMR or CD’s in a live game. (Celticfox) Drink a beer for every time someone mention unpretentious wine (Celticfox) One beer every time you click on a thread with a star. That should make the threads more interesting. (Ulytau) Take a shot whenever some mention that gunboat isn’t real diplomacy.
For the WebDip Webcam games:
When playing a live game via Google; take a shot/drink for every supply center you have. (2ndWhiteLine) If you lose a supply center then regain it then you still take the shot. (Thucydides) Chug a beer for every time you backstab someone (Celticfox)
@ without being to vicious... Then I'm pretty sure "Drink for X seconds where X is your peak ghost-rating" (Geofram) must go. Or be modified... I'm sure that would cause all the good players to CD at the start of every live game.
The Hunger Games (And Other Teen Franchises)--Thoughts?
I've said my peace about my disdain for manufactured book series in general, and especially teen ones...and yet, "Ender's Game," a book I've praised, is definitely a series, and if not targeted at teens, certainly aimed at them in large part...so, my question, as The Hunger Games hits theatres, is simply--what do you think of them? HP? Twilight? Hunger Games? Ender? Others? Fair to compare...and do any of them, in your opinion, have "staying power?"
I started a password protected, long-phased new game. http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=84290 I hope there are some guys who want to join, as I need good players for a good game. So, just message me if you are interested!
I am about to host my second diplomacy party with a group of friends. here's the thing: i've only played online, and none of my friends have played at all, except for my last game. I'd like to tell you what I'm doing and see if you guys have any pointers for teaching diplomacy, and how to host a good live game.
it's been suggested that I am racist because I think an African American can make it on his own in 2012. If you are African American...do you NEED a White Man's HELP to make it in life? Or do you think that you are capable of succeeding on your own, WITHOUT a White man's help?
Who's racist? The one who trusts you for your own strength? Or the liberal whitey who thinks you are too weak on your own to succeed????
