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!
