Civil Disorder..players in a game should get the option of switching from their country to one that has no player

I'm suggesting that players already in a game should have the choice of switching to a country that has no player because it's gone into Civil Disorder, or the mods remove a player. Other players outside the game get to join for free now, no extra points going in to the pot. Why shouldn't players al...

Re: I Regret I will have too retire form webdip.

Hang on, who says they are leaving ? Jmo or Smokey Gem ? If Smokey Gem has the illusion that he'll be busy with the latest X Witcher & 111-Box gizmos he's apparently aquired, I recall his multudinous offspring & predict that they will soon interfere with that caper.

Re: Oprah For Prez bitches

There's been speculation for at least a decade about Oprah running for the Presidency. This current frenzied interest is a product of the news/commentary/multi platform media & the "chattering class" having an insatiable demand for "things to broadcast & discuss" ..and Trump's performance as Preside...

Re: School of War - Fall 2017

Big thanks all ( with perhaps one exception ) who participated in this Skool of War game and forum discussion. The player and their mentor with Italy deserve credit. Italy is perceived by many as a most difficult country to play. The "exceptional?" Kansas Boyd with England took the game into unusual...

Possible option of Diplomacy games with not "enough" players still starting & being played

Games are cancelled when not enough players join. What if there were an optional alternative ? With Classic Diplomacy there are ways to play with less than seven players, eg with six players Italy was nuetral (no player). There were other ways to play with (I think) three, four and five players. I w...

Re: Does Chicken Really taste like anything

Well there is that old joke about licking something that smells like fish then finding that it tastes like chicken. But I don't think I should be any more specific. I'm sure there is an equivalent joke (or series of jokes) about something that looks like a pork sausage...

Happy birthday & Happy New Year Maniac. Maybe, just like Skool of War, we need a Skool for Almighty Mods & you could get a leg up into an Almighty Modship via that.

Re: German Strategy Thread: Forum Inauguration Edition

I'm usually curious about these types of discussions, partly because I think what is just as, or more important than the question of "strategic suitability" is the question of what is the character of the various other players. I also note that there has been no mention of the Russian & German allia...
