WebDip Weekly Phase League

Basically, I would like to form a group of players who would enjoy playing Diplomacy on weekly phases. Press games (for me) are difficult to fit into my hectic schedule. The games I've tried to form/join do not usually reach the required number of players before expiring. A list of likely players to...
