Ghost Rating Challenge - Public Press Edition

#1 Post by Yonni » Wed Mar 03, 2021 2:07 pm

Hi Everyone,

Today marks my 10 year anniversary of joining the site and, coincidentally, looks like the day that the final game from the previous GR challenge is going to finally end. I had a really fun game last time so I wanted to do it again but with a small twist to keep things fresh - let's play some Wilsonian Diplomacy.

For the uninitiated, a Ghost Rating challenge is a great way to find people of equal 'skill' to play against. To sign up, simply add your name to the list in the order according to your Ghost Rating Overall Position. That can be found in your WebDip (not forum) profile. As the list fills up, it will be split into groups of 7 to form games. Last round we got over 35 people to sign up and had 5 games. Hopefully we can get a bunch again now.

By default, let's say the games are 48hr/turn, 5:points:, and public press but feel free to change things up once the groups are formed.

I did not know anyone was still interested in G4!

I will join this. Have never played PP before so hopefully will be a good way to start

Thank you Yonni. Playing a Wilsonian, just some weeks later, with some veterans (Yigg, Bob, emc) from our famous World Cup 7 way draw would surely be fun

I'll be watching this. Unfortunately I'm not sure if I have the bandwidth to commit to this.

Despite what people say about you, Wusti, I always thought you could at least count ; )

Goldie, it can be 48 hrs/turn and pretty casual. If it would make playing easier, we can make sure it doesn't start until after you've set up in the next round of the WC. I'll just add your name to the list so you can see how it looks there.

Game 1
Yonni - 42
Yigg - 106
goldfinger0303 - 217
gimix - 898
Talby2 - 1,142
Wusti - 2,873
BornAgainGamer - 4,404

Game 2
BobMcBob - 13,796
lfischl - 61,025
e.m.c^42 - 65,411

Wow! Your name looks great in the list! I think you should keep it.

Whatever else people say - I am humble and did not want to promote myself as I am sure more will come along and put me back into Game 2 or 3 if they get up ;)

Funny man, I see. Will it be anon or non-anon?

If I were to play - and I'm not saying I will - I'd only do anon.

I've been playing Diplomacy since the 80's, but have played, I'm fairly sure, exactly one public press game. And I got destroyed because I'm not even sure that I understand the theory on public press. So, I share the love (and my GR) herewith:

Game 1
Yonni - 42
Yigg - 106
goldfinger0303 - 217
gimix - 898
Talby2 - 1,142
yoak - 1,773
Wusti - 2,873

Game 2
BornAgainGamer - 4,404
BobMcBob - 13,796
lfischl - 61,025
e.m.c^42 - 65,411

I'm really worried about playing that "Game" guy who is in first place for GR, though.

And there are two of them! The Unbeatable "Game" Brothers! Let's just hope we don't see a third one in position 3
