Re: All aboard the Biden train!!

Not changing my vote or anything, from my neck of the woods though it looks like Trump supporters are out in droves and Biden supporters are on YouTube. Depends on where you live. In my town, it's pretty much all Trump. If I drive to the college town 20 minutes away, there's only blm and Biden signs.

Re: Preparing for the worst

The only message at a polling place should be 'go vote'. Are you advocating for lúb Dems to arm themselves and stand as close as legally allowed to the local polling to places as a strategy for good political engagement in the next UK election? Picturing Nick Clegg doing this made me literally lmao...

Re: Preparing for the worst

I don't suppose anyone has any images of this supposed intimidation? I'm not entirely sure what what's particularly intimidating about a protest held away from the limits of the polling station, to be honest. Sounds more like an attempt by Democrats to try and invigorate their base with stories of ...

Re: Preparing for the worst

Are you an American? Cause where I live/work/hang out, almost no one gives much of a shit. In a country where barely half of people even vote, there won't be a civil war over an election. At least not yet.

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge

*forgot to mention- alternatively, make games that have 101 point buy ins. You virtually guarantee solid enough players by doing that, or at least it's always worked from what I've seen.

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge

Yonni - ELO rankings would be far more meaningful in Diplomacy and the guts of my complaint. ... Converting to ELO would be a step in the right direction to fixing it. As I tried to explain a bit better in my earlier post (I won't repeat it here since it appears above but am happy to engage in a di...

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge

Hi all, The Master's tournament is winding down so I'm in need of a new game and I imagine some others out there are too. Let's try get some new ones going with a GR challenge. For those unfamiliar, we will fill games in order of Ghost Rating. If we have 7 players, we'll fill one game. If we have 1...

Re: Top 100 GR Gunboat Games

Should I send another email to find someone to shuffle the countries? If you also prep everything for the mods in advance, they may be more willing to prioritise it for you. The country reallocation tool is pretty annoying to use—doing the legwork for them might speed up processing. (Assuming you h...
