I'd prefer it to be set up like the first Lando's tournament. That is, players being put into groups based on their GR. This way, it shouldn't logistically be a problem to shuffle the countries so everyone plays every country once.

I'm almost thinking a hybrid of how Lando set it up last year with a few tweaks on the later rounds to keep thinks moving. Later rounds and finals are where things got bogged down last year and I don't want a repeat of that.

If we do 36 hr phases and no WFO and do all games each round simultaneously then we shouldn't get bogged down much. Worst case the games slow down waiting for someone who refuses to ready orders ever.

I don't want anyone signing up for something they don't have the complete terms and conditions too. We already know there's lots of interest so there's no need for interest-fishing either.

Buy in will be low. Final details will be posted early this week and signups will start once I get updated GR.
Valis2501 (2057 D (G))
10 Aug 15 UTC
What? You say we need an updated GB GR list?!
Any word on the number of concurrent games, time limits, or rounds? I think I've only ever played one Gunboat game before but I am interested enough to crash and burn trying a tourney.
Valis2501 (2057 D (G))

All that will hopefully be posted tomorrow. We're going through and crossing all the t's and lower case j's.
I didn't think you ever crossed the lower case j's just sometimes the upper case ones... God help us all these rules have no chance!

Pacific Northwest FTF
I've only ever played FTF with people who don't really care about the game and want to be done after a year, and I always feel a twinge of jealousy when I sew those people having fun playing in real life on that crappy coast across the country. This is just a post to see who might be interested in getting something set up on this side of the country. I'm in the Seattle area.

Conundrum
So the people who make the schedules at my school are kinda dumb. I signed up for both AP Micro/Macroeconomics and AP European History. Only one class of each is being offered. And they happen to be the same hour. So I need to drop one and pick up some other course. I really don't know, so what (preferably AP) course would you suggest for me to take instead of AP Micro/Macroeconomics (because there's no chance I'll drop Euro)?

Cheating accusations
Without mentioning names or game ID's, can I please clarify something.

Making cheating accusations via in-game global press is not allowed, right? The correct procedure being to email the mods who will investigate?

Getting Germany every single game
Hi everybody, I'd like to ask if anyone has experience with an account getting a certain country every single game. One of my friends who I've played in several games against has drawn Germany out of the pot every single time. We're onto the fifth time out of 5 games he's gotten Germany.

I'd put it up to chance but we've reached 5 sigma and are on our way to 6. Thoughts?

I listened to an interesting episode of On Point (probably the best radio show there is, btw) a few days ago about Coding Boot Camps. Here's a link to the episode and an older article if you don't have time to listen.

Looking for a Modern Diplomacy Analysis.
I have never played the variant before but I have been looking at some archived games of it on webdiplomacy recently. I was hoping that people would be willing to share any thoughts on it they have. I would love a country by country analysis.
