NEED 7 PLAYERS! FIRST SEVEN TO POST BELOW STATING THAT THEY WANT TO JOIN ARE IN!
Looks like there have been a few good diplomacy games here in the past. If you’re not familiar, diplomacy is a game in which players take on the role of leaders of countries in the year 1900. They negotiate with other nations and move around their military units and attempt to take control of “supply centers”. The winner is the country that controls 18 supply centers.
Playing involves communicating with the other players to work out deals and submitting turns to me. We’ll do between 3 and 5 turns per week depending on what the players want to do. Negotiations can be done privately or you can of course post any diplomatic messages publicly. All turns are entered into a program and calculated at once. Two map pictures will be posted each turn showing each player’s moves and the final outcome of the turn.
The rules are very simple, see the documents attached below if you’re interested but want to see how its played. If you’re interested in playing, I can only take up to 7 players so don’t delay. I will of course not be playing myself (duh). If we can’t get at least 6 then we wont play.
