Re: The Carebear Conundrum

Octavius, I disagree. Poland was to be killed, even if I was to try for solo Poland was not to survive. The only difference would be that I would be the killer in this case. Also, this is the only one time in dozens of games to get to a 2-way. In the second game, the term was given publicly and priv...

Re: The Carebear Conundrum

https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=232095 The game above is my best game to the day. I took over France and made it to a two-way draw. I worked with Egypt in all the game and was a faithful ally. I reached 32 SCs and he had 31. I could have stabbed him at the time he got the 32nd so to be sol...

Re: The Carebear Conundrum

In the early stages of the game, you have to trust and work with one or more players. You cannot do it alone. So you have to trust, to reverse this in a turn or two is not what I like. After all the things said in this discussion, I contemplate the possibility of abandoning the game as it is underst...

Re: The Carebear Conundrum

Octavious how someone comes to be if he plays as you recommend? One game and the other players know that you are not to be trusted. Even if the game is an anon, there are writing patterns that betray many players. So if I know that I am playing with you or a number of others I know that there is no ...

It would be very useful to people with loaded daily schedules, especially when something had gone awry and the schedule is disturbed.

Re: The Carebear Conundrum

The scrabble analogy is of irrational behaviour, not a style of playing. Here we discuss a different approach to the game within the rules. I am not familiar with the football example. What is honourable and what is not differs from one person to another. Should weak players who know that they canno...

Re: The Carebear Conundrum

Casinos are a profit-seeking business, not a gaming community. They are working on the basis of making money, not having fun. So you cannot compare the two things.
Would you prefer to have players playing this way because they like honesty and honour or not have these players at all?

Re: The Carebear Conundrum

As I mentioned in my OP. The point of the game is to try to win - anything other than that is against the spirit of the game. A draw is the second best possible outcome which should be settled on after it becomes too challenging to get that win. I am clearly not a top player - but how can I ever im...

Re: The Carebear Conundrum

Why are you so much against the draw alliance? We are not all of us top players, we have to settle for less and knowing your limitations is the beginning of wisdom.

Re: The Counting Game

1137 AD Emperor John II Komnenos leads a Byzantine expeditionary force into Cilicia (the Byzantine fleet guards his flank). He defeats the Armenians under Prince Leo I ("Lord of the Mountains"), and captures the cities of Mersin, Tarsus, Adana and Mamistra. Leo retreats to the great fortifications o...
