Re: Variant rules game for players who like co-operation

I tend to agree that the alliances could be better assigned. Russia, for example, starts with an extra unit, but that is counteracted by its having to defend both the south and the west. With Turkey as a guaranteed ally, there is none of this "arranged bounce into BLA" nonsense, and the Juggernaut g...

Re: We hear more and more frequently of "the Australian"

So is your position, based on your reading of Victorian history, that we today still talk about "The Hun" or "The Kaffir" as a monolithic generalized stereotype in the exact same way as the Victorians did? Or that the Victorians never used such language?

Re: We hear more and more frequently of "the Australian"

This is typical of Victorian English thought - that foreigners' personality traits could be discerned just by their identification as "the Australian", "the Canadian", "the Hun" or "the Kaffirs." This train of thought could not conceive of these people as having individuality or free will.

Re: Did I do something wrong?

I don't think you did anything wrong in joining a game for novices when you are more experienced. Your point level is open information and everyone can protect themselves accordingly. You may have run afoul by joining a game with your friend, if your off-game relationship with that person was not di...

How Can One Advertise an Anonymous Game Without Breaching Anonymity?

I’d like to create a game and advertise it here. But I’d like to make the game anonymous, and if I advertise it, people will know I’m one of the players. Is there a workaround to this?

Re: When to Solo?

Of course not in this game. As I said, that game is nearly over (just waiting for two dead countries to finalize their defenseless orders); and as I also said, I wouldn't do it in this game. But I take your point about not posting while a game is ongoing. It was just something I wanted to ask the co...
