To the southern fried team and future Brother Bored content that does not exist in our reality now, I apologize.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

Two questions: 1. When does the 2nd gunboat game start? It seems to me that after the 1st has gone on for a few weeks the next should start up that way everyone isn't waiting for the 2nd game to finish. 2. Are gunboats scored the same as the full press games? I think they are just wanted to double c...

The Next webDip Tournament?

The Briefing is looking to add some more tournaments to our calendar since currently the online hobby has 0 tournaments going for any sign ups. Is webDip going to step in to fill the void?

What aspiring moderator has an idea or what is coming down the pike we could start advertising?

Congratulations Brumark! If anyone is interested in hearing the thoughts of a lowly substitute player who eased my nation into humiliation and defeat, I'll throw mine in. - New Austria (1906-1907)
