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????
What is the difference and why do they both have the same webDip logo but it seems are seperate sites requiring seperate user info. Was there a split in leadership and one site is a rebel faction? I want to play more fun variants' does that mean I need
Any one else tired of the God-Hating socialist lefties that troll this site.
Any time someone starts a forum to state an arguement it is filled with trolls mocking other peoples opinions because they are not their own. I know as soon as I post this trolls will flood it, but I want to know if I am not the only sensible person who wants to see other opinions and ideas and think about them.
Question: Has anyone else notice that pork rinds seem to be completely devoid of nutrition or tastiness? That their outlandish texture often completely conficts with our delicate sensibilities, and often suggest that we should spit them up or cover them with hot sauce?
Question: Has anyone else noticed that Putin seems to be completely void of rational thought? That his outlandish statements often completely conflict with reality, and are often suggest the exact opposite of what was stated?
I have a goal to finish stats that look at the following: a solo layout for each power that looks at the centers owned by each country and the frequency of control, i will also separate WA and PPSC win/draw stats, the number of centers a country needs to feel secure in the idea that it has likely minimized the likelihood it will be eliminated, and an update on my prior work. important about 40% done and hope to have it done by the end of the semester.
