Re: Bots not entering orders

Kaner and I were trying to play the bots in the most recent podcast episode that has just been released. https://diplomacygames.com/a-small-break/ Any idea on when this will be fixed?

Re: Melbourne Open Diplomacy Tournament

@BrownPaperTiger - the Melbourne Open was played last year pre-Covid. PoppyCon happened in March this year weeks before everything went crazy.

Seeing Melbourne is just coming out of lockdown now, it may be a little while until we see another f2f tourney.

Re: Very superstitious

Do any other players have a lucky charm they follow? How does it work? Looking at having a discussion about this in an upcoming podcast episode.

Reply to the thread or PM me, particularly if you're happy for your superstition to be discussed but you not mentioned by name.
