Re: Shared wins?

Calhamer himself talks about this stuff here... http://www.diplomacy-archive.com/resources/calhamer/objectives.htm He doesn't say drawing is winning, but he does says it is a valued result, in other words, it is not LOSING like some people like to say. Yesterday, I was able to talk a guy into a draw...

Re: Shared wins?

I'm impressed by draws and I consider them a win. And I think that is the real beauty of this game. It is so open to interpretation. You can tell me all day long about the right way to play, and the right way to win, and the obvious optimal move. But the game is about people. And if a bunch of guys ...

5 Minute World 21 game

Hey guys, I just have a question about this 5 minute game that is starting up soon. When you play those, do you actually talk to each other? Is 5 minutes enough to get any deals going with other players? Do some players end up talking through other means? Educate me. I'm looking to play a few of the...

Re: Keeping a list

Yes, basing decisions in a game on a list of past grievances or loyalties will eventually lead to stale games. That's a good way to make a rut. This is the path to the dark side. Turn away!

Re: Dixiecon 2020 going virtual

So, tonight I was involved in a practice game put on by David Hood on Backstabbr to try things out for Dixiecon. We used Webex teams simultaneously with the Backstabbr press function. 15 minute turns. Chris Martin and Michael Binder (North American Champions) were playing as well. I was a disaster. ...

Nice. I saw your name pop up on the Webex. I saw Edi Birsan's name too, which is exciting, I think.

Re: How to change the number of players ?

For less than 7 players, you can try to create a Classic game with bot settings. I don't remember how to do this but there are special settings that allow you to play with bots while there are more than one player in. Hey guys, I've been gone awhile, and I come back and there are bots! I heard a po...
