Diplomacy?

Postby redwill » Wed Mar 22, 2017 7:38 pm

I was wondering if any of you might be interested in playing Diplomacy in this forum.

Long story short: I've never played it but have recently become interested in doing so. There are many places online to play, but I'd rather play here with the folks I kinda know as I'm learning the game.

It seems fascinating and I think it could be done in this forum.

It has a bit of a steep learning curve compared to Warz or the other things we do here.

We would need at least seven players. Ideally, we would have a separate mod (gamemaster) but I think at least one among us would be trusted enough to handle that.

Anyone familiar with Diplomacy? Anyone play it? Thoughts on whether it might work here?

That's what the interweb links are for, Irene Cara.

I'm up for new games, but don't think I have time yet. Maybe in the future!

About 20 years ago two very stoned friends of mine tried to explain Diplomacy to me. As I was even more stoned myself I took my leave after about half an hour, stating that I didn't understand a single word of what they've been trying to tell me and set across town where at a rather late hour I showed up at the door of this girl I had the hots for. She was a real pal and fed me things. Long story short: I have no idea how this game works.

I would enjoy this, probably be the best at it.

Tied up till late April though.
