I will be starting a standard Diplomacy game with preferences given to new members on Redscape.

Turns will be adjudicated Tues with retreats and builds each a day after. Redscape rules in effect.

Please post preferences with your intent to play and email.

Have fun!

Brad,

I don't play any of the variants, so if you start a Standard game and need someone, I'd be pleased to play. gpilette[at]tampabay[dot]com Thanks

WTF

Here it is closing in on two months since the original posting and ONLY 2 players have expressed interest in playing a standard game. A mere 10 years ago there used to be 8 to 12 games on the board at one time, to say nothing of the fabulous Patriot Games tournaments. Where has everyone gone? It's still the same game. Surely we can find 5 more closet idiots to jump in and get this started.

What say you ?

8 to 12!? You must be a late-comer, GG. This site sometimes hosted more 20 games of Dip at a time, not including the other games and tournaments. That will likely never happen again, at least in this incarnation. People have moved on and so has the hobby. I think the popular sites these days are the web-based ones, such as PlayDiplomacy and vDiplomacy. You might remember the ill-fated OTTO that was Chad's attempt to keep up with the times.

Okay. Since I was not asked to participate in the "Veteran's" game (sniff!) I have to show that I'm not too proud, though I might be over-extending myself. Email: mndipper - at - yahoo - dot - com

I want to play Italy.

How about guys that have been away so long that they barely remember the rules!

I'd like to play, and have no preference...

Great !!! Now there are FIVE of us.

First posted in January, can we really keep up this blistering pace ??
All we need is 2 more.
Should we re-introduce the Royal Navy's time-honored tradition of the "Press Gang" ??

I'll join in too.

So now we only need one more.

But I'm afraid that The Hobby has fallen on hard times, sad to say.
