Re: Diplomacy
I'd say we are officially done with the previous game. I don't see anyone else answering the question or submitting an EGS.

@Dad_Scaper any overarching thoughts on this past game? Or questions for players that may or may not get answered. Or unusual occurrences on the board outside of the norm? I don't know how regular an Italian stab Spring of 1901 vs. Austria that gets repaired is...)

With that in mind, signups for next?

1) kevindola
2) @Ranior
3) Dragon Ruler
4) @Knight of Scape

anyone else?

Re: Diplomacy
There's often "dotting" an ally for a supply center every now & then. At higher levels of play, you don't see anger over something reparable cloud the better judgment of the players involved.

That said, a move like that normally dooms both A&I. I wonder if it would have gone differently if Russia had been more active in those early conversations. Ultimately, the AI relationship was reparable because, despite the stab, the two had already built a healthy rapport, and wrote each other often. Neither Russia nor (as I recall) Turkey was really able to capitalize, in the East, because neither had built up that relationship with A or I.

Nope, still bitter.

Re: Diplomacy
Assuming we don’t start before May 13th, I’m in.

kevindola May 6th, 2021 03:52 PM

Re: Diplomacy
Ok, that puts as at 5. Kinseth told me he is a maybe and to hit him up once we have 6 to see if the timing will work out:

1) kevindola
2) @Ranior
3) Dragon Ruler
4) @Knight of Scape

Re: Diplomacy
I'll run it if D_S wants to play.

Dad_Scaper May 6th, 2021 05:08 PM

Re: Diplomacy
No thanks. I love this game but I do not have the energy to spare. I prefer facilitating. :)

Re: Diplomacy
Everybody wants in on this hot Diplomacy action!

Reflection May 7th, 2021 03:56 PM

Re: Diplomacy
I would be interested in joining this game!

Dad_Scaper May 7th, 2021 07:34 PM

Re: Diplomacy
Welcome to the board, Reflection! What a fine first post!

kevindola May 7th, 2021 08:21 PM

Whose first post is better?

6) Reflection

I will check today to see if Kinseth wants to be our 7th.

Reflection May 12th, 2021 09:13 AM

Re: Diplomacy
I'm thinking this second post is a letdown. Very excited for the game, though!!!

Re: Diplomacy
It’s important to manage expectations.

Re: Diplomacy
Looks like someone has been paying attention to my career and attitude towards parenthood...

Re: Diplomacy
Turkey and ITALY split the first game?! Wow..... Italy's the lowest-performing on average.

kevindola June 3rd, 2021 11:02 PM

Re: Diplomacy
Looking for 1 more:
@scorpiusx @wriggz @All Your Pie @MegaSilver @Zetsubo @Typhon2222

Anybody new?

kevindola July 6th, 2021 04:25 PM

Re: Diplomacy
I think we are still just needing 1 more (although at this point we probably need to reconfirm those who say yes originally)

If anyone is interested and hasn't played before new people are encouraged. Many players learned the first time through playing here on scapers.

kevindola July 19th, 2021 10:22 AM

Re: Diplomacy
@Kinseth said he would probably be good for an August start date. Since it's been 2-3 months since everyone else said they were good to play we should probably confirm that's still the case:

@Dragon Ruler
@Knight of Scape

Dad_Scaper July 19th, 2021 10:42 AM

Re: Diplomacy
I can start one whenever.

Dragon Ruler July 19th, 2021 11:32 AM

Re: Diplomacy
I'm good

OEAO July 20th, 2021 10:17 AM

Re: Diplomacy
I'm good with that!

Ranior July 20th, 2021 12:21 PM

Re: Diplomacy
I'm out--have a 3 week vacation planned in September and it doesn't make much sense to try and get a game like this in around that.

Even beyond that....I'd probably be out anyhow. I love Diplomacy, but it is a big commitment to play these games and I'm just not quite sure I have that drive at the moment with summer and life largely opening back up and being able to do so many things again. Probably best to leave me time for other ventures at the moment.

Knight of Scape July 20th, 2021 07:31 PM

Re: Diplomacy
I'm still down to play if we get something going fairly soon, but I'm going to be busier from the end of August onward with school starting up again.


kevindola October 5th, 2021 02:31 PM

Re: Diplomacy
Ok, 3 months later. Any appetite for this?

I'll ping those that expressed interest previously, but anyone who is interested even if they've never played before speak up. I know several scapers (including myself) who first played here and fell in love (or into hate as some can attest to....it's complicated ;)

@Ranior @Dragon Ruler @Knight of Scape @OEAO

Dragon Ruler October 6th, 2021 03:48 AM

Re: Diplomacy
I'm in.

kevindola December 7th, 2021 11:58 AM

Re: Diplomacy
2 month ping on this thread. Anyone out there want to play or want to learn to play?

Dad_Scaper December 7th, 2021 12:03 PM

Re: Diplomacy
I remain ready to run it, if there's interest.

kevindola December 7th, 2021 06:43 PM

Re: Diplomacy
Ok I've got 3 people who have gotten back to me with verbal (text/IM) commitments for a January start date

1) kevindola
2) All Your Pie
3) Ranior
4) Reflection

Anyone new want to give it ago? @Dragon Ruler @wriggz @quozl @OEAO @vegietarian18 @MegaSilver @Zetsubo ?

Dragon Ruler December 9th, 2021 07:07 PM

Re: Diplomacy
I'm in and I believe OEAO will play.

kevindola December 11th, 2021 10:32 AM

Re: Diplomacy
That would put us at 6.

kevindola January 3rd, 2022 07:58 PM

Re: Diplomacy
Happy New Year. Looks like we are at 6 who were good with a mid January start date. Anyone else? Or a lurker who wants to try?

OEAO January 3rd, 2022 08:44 PM

Re: Diplomacy
I have one last paper I’m working on (due the 6th), but I’m game for mid-January!

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 07:08 AM.
