A little while ago that most esteemed pretty, fucking, liberal, Maeglin started a thread about Diplomacy, the game. He organized three games of it, and it’s going quite well. For me anyways, I’m enjoying it. It’s been quite enjoyable. So enjoyable in fact, that I thought I’d trot out another game that has brought me enjoyement over the years. That game is Republic of Rome from Avalon Hill.
It’s a game full of intrigue, backstabbing, and politics. It’s not for the faint of heart, the weak of stomache, or the particularly nice people.
It’s for those who find the rules of Diplomacy to simple. It is a complex game, but 95% of it is quite easy. And once you learn it, it flows quite easily.
It can take a bit of time, so be prepared to devote a month or so. I can honestly say I’ve never played it online before.
I’ll volunter my services as the Game Manager, as long as no one else has experience. I’ll try to get together a few games. I’ll also post the rules so you can read over them, feel free to email me with any questions, or post them here in the thread. It can be confusing until you actually dive in and start playing.
Here are the Rules. Btw, the link at that site does not email me, I’ll work on getting all the stuff up on a dedicated SD ROR site. to email me, click the link in my profile or send to firstname.lastname@example.org
