Need some web design in the holidays?
Planning ahead, I'll probably be happy doing anything more useful than what most people usually do during holidays, so I figured that doing some web design for someone is a good way to help, brush up and improve my skills and perhaps even earn a couple of bucks. Perhaps someone has such a project for me?

Variant?
New variant idea with alot of changes to Classic. would add to the naval combat substantially and would intentionally reduce ground forces at the start of the game changing possibly the direction the countries attacked at turn 0

Challenge
I am looking for experienced players to play against so I can learn more and better myself? I realize i am relatively new but I think I have a valid argument for why I should be given the chance. Looking for a classic, PPSC, ANON no messaging game.

So a girl isn't sure about 'breaking up' with a guy and I help her figure it out..
I think I've done it pretty much by the book, but I can't ignore the fact that there's quite a bias: I really like her, and I don't like him. So breaking up happens to be in my favour.
What I wonder is: does this make it wrong? At least consciously, the only thing I care about is helping her do the right thing, and there's definitely something 'cold' between them that wouldn't be there if they love eachother.. I'm pretty sure it would end at some point anyway..

This site needs the "Classic Chaos" variant from Vdiplomacy. I would play it at Vdip but it's next to impossible to start a chaos game there.
Good idea no?

Includes some very interesting stuff about Edi Birsan's life story and also does a great job of conveying the feel of the game to a lay audience

“Is there a ‘right way’ to live?” asked Birsan. “Not really. Diplomacy reflects life.”

"By his own admission, Edi was introverted and repressed. A year after his mom took off, Edi was in therapy. His therapist saw in him a need to channel his bottled-up aggression, and to learn how to trust people again. She gave him a gift — a board game. I read in a magazine that this was Kennedy’s favorite game. They’d play it in the White House.3 She told him it would help him deal with betrayal."

Funniest paragraph I've read in awhile. Poor Edi.

I used to play nothing but face to face games. I played one at DragonCon year before last. I got my hat handed to me in short order by a law student playing Italy. I immediately started giving out the Webdip url. Hope some of those guys are among us now.
So are we all alpha nerds? Great article, Frank

I've been waiting for an opportunity to post this, and this thread seems as good as any. I'm organizing the annual Weasel Moot tournament in Chicago this summer. It will be July 26-27, right downtown at the Hampton Inn and Suites in the River North neighborhood. The venue is surrounded by shops, restaurants and bars -- it's a great location. You can find more info at http://windycityweasels.org/wm8. If you have questions, post here or pm me.

The typical tournament in the North American hobby isn't quite as intense as a world championship, but the article gives you a pretty good idea of what playing in an ftf tournament is like. Anyway, we'd love to see some more WebDippers there.

if you haven't played Ftf before... or even Dip.
Do you think that article would rather make you want to play or not?
Some FtF friends of mine are having that discussion, courious what webdip thinks.

It depends on the personality type. For the extroverted intellectual egomaniacs like most of us here, I think it would draw us in to dip even if we had never played before. But for the more traditional care bear players at new folk who prefer cooperative type games like D&D or MMOs, it would keep them away.

I think it might intrigue the casual wargamer, but if they are a pure strategy and tactics with known sides type, they might be dissuaded a bit knowing they don't just have to know their shit but be able to influence others.

"For the extroverted intellectual egomaniacs like most of us here" I actually don't consider myself as extroverted, intellectual or (very) egomaniac ... but this article made me want to play a ftf tournament ... no ... wait ... it was not the article - I wanted to do that for a long time already ... I just don't have the time to do it and I don't know if there are any tournaments anywhere not too far away
great article from a great website

somebody shared that with me yesterday, great read. I found particularly accurate the part where it said, "After all the anger, the manipulation, the frayed nerves, and the hurt feelings, I was left feeling something wholly unlike boredom, but something also unlike fun."

This very accurately describes why I no longer actually PLAY. Don't worry kids, I will again, someday, when my fragile emotional heart can again bear the strain.

Very minor bug
Very minor issue that probably doesn't affect many people. If you sign in to a banned account (I created an account in error near the beginning, forgetting that I already had one), there's no 'log out' button. I needed to clear the cookies in order to sign in with my real one. Not a big issue but figured it was worth mentioning.
