I've got some time to kill...I'll give this a go, if there's still a space.

I call Portugal.

I will certainly watch if a game gets going but am not sure I would be e-timely enough to keep up w/ it... :-?


Cool. If you can be there for the second game (if there is one) that would be awesome.

We have 5 confirmed and 2 wait and see's.

What method do you guys want to use for communicating with each other? We could just use the PM feature here at the cafe, but I was thinking instant messenger would be better if we could get everyone to use it.


I don't have IM at work, so that would be tough for me.


But if that's how you guys want to play it, then just replace me. ;-D

If you are on the list of interested players and have played before, let me know. I ask that you wait for the second game. The first game is practice and will be limited to 8 turns.

Unless we can get 7 people to agree to use instant messenger, then we will just use the PM system here at the Cafe. To be fair, either everyone will have IM or it will not be allowed. If you would like to use instant messenger, post here or pm me.

I think we should start with a negotiation period of 2 days. We can shorten it to one day once the game is running smoothly.

Game isn't going to start for a couple days at least. So feel free to give input on how you would like to play Diplomacy.

I can only use the Cafe's PM system.

Same here. If you guys are doing this through some IM service I'll give my spot to someone else.
