Where it went wrong
I thought I remember a proposed series called "Where it went wrong" or something like that.

Did no one have a game they wanted dissected? Because I wouldn't mind submitting some of my gunboat play to criticism.

Constitutional Rights for Embryonic Americans?
In the GOP debate last Thursday, unsurprisingly, abortion was a point of discussion amongst candidates. Obviously they were all pro-life to some extent or another, but Mike Huckabee went so far as to say that abortion was already illegal, because unborn children have the rights to equal protection under the law and due process. Right from conception, they have constitutional rights, he argues.

Regardless of your position on abortion, is this a valid argument?

What do people use to adjudicate F2F games without a board?
Fairly self-explanatory, really. Backstabbr doesn't really work for me.

Is that because of the chits for the armies and fleets?

I think the map looks nice on that edition. I do like the wooden pieces I saw on older editions though.

Yes, the cardboard chits are a miserable experience. Also many of the colors are muted and hard to tell the difference between, especially England/France/Italy. They're like blue, light blue, greenish blue.

"Don't but the 50th anniversary Hasbro one"

Unfortunately, you don't really have a choice at this point.

I plan to buy a set of wooden pieces for my board at some point, but it's kind of low on the priority list.
Valis2501 (2057 D (G))
16 Aug 15 UTC
Believe me it should be higher! It's important not only for clarity of where's what, but what everything's doing (you can show supports with the wooden set by standing them up)
MarquisMark (326 D (G))
16 Aug 15 UTC
It probably would be if I actually used my board to play live games with real people. Up to now, I just use it to help think through scenarios and plan moves.

And I haven't been able to find the right pieces to match that France teal color either. Austria is a funny shade of red too.
orathaic (1009 D (B))
16 Aug 15 UTC
The version with metal pieces are even better!

I plan to carve nice wooden pieces at some point... If i eer get around to it.

But yes, using experience to resolve orders is fine. I can handle most adjudications without much trouble.
MarquisMark (326 D (G))
16 Aug 15 UTC
Agreed. I think it only gets really tricky in the late-mid and end game when there's a stalemate situation with a lot of supports issued and being cut (gameID=125450 was one I played in where it would have been a mess to figure out on paper). Just takes a bit longer to adjudicate the rounds.

But my understanding is that most house games never make it that far anyways.

So teenagers brains are different from adult brains; that is a reason why we don't let them drink or drive... The frontal lobe which controls will-power and executive function ( ie decision making ) continues developing until about 25.

Risk taking
http://youtu.be/vBX-KulgJ1o
Great video, but the first thing i think of is relationships, (and given that i was recently dumped, this is no surprise) Naturally you could also apply this to diplomacy; but the probabilities get a little messed up, and in Dip not taking a bet means taking a different course, which may also be risky.
