1,408 balanced reduced latin squares.
Once a half a year or so ago on here, I mentioned this paper http://condor.depaul.edu/mash/Diplomacy.pdf and how I'd really like to get my hand on some of those squares. Well, Tim McMurry sent me 1,408 reduced latin squares to be used in balanced diplomacy tournaments.

The Art of Correspondence in the Game of Diplomacy
Hi folks, I just wanted to alert the webdip community to my new book. I've finally completed a two-year study of what makes for effective negotiations (and what doesn't work so well). http://www.amazon.com/Art-Correspondence-Game-Diplomacy-ebook/dp/B015XAJFM0/ Thanks, Conor

Top 100 GR game. Full press. Anon. WTA.
Hi all, I want to try and play one more game before I take a break again. Some games I played the past months have been great, others a bit disappointing. Overall I still think GR is the best indicator for a noNMR high level of press game, as it was three years ago before I returned to the site. So for my last game before my break I'd like to try and set up a top 100 GR game. Is there anyone out there willing to spar?

Off to work to play Diplomacy
Today I'm in the fantastic position that I'm off to work to play Diplomacy. Or at least, GM it. A local bank is setting up a game for 300 (!) employees, in a trajectory to kickstart discussions about trust and audacity in company culture. I'm really interested: have others ever used Diplomacy in a professional setting? Maybe we're on to something.

So I have permission to use a 3D printer for my boardgame prototype..
Now I need 3 D models to print and use as units. I need tanks, infantry, helicopters, planes, artillery, battleships, factories, territory markers (flags or more creative) and possibly the resources oil, iron, gold and aluminium depicted somehow..
Could I find files for those somewhere? Thoughts?

How does PPSC work?
I thought that in PPSC you always, no matter what, hey points according to the number of SCs you control. But someone in game told me that if you draw, all the points are split among survivors.

Can someone clarify for me?

ok, time for some contraversy: Is Cereal Soup?
I haven't posted much this last week; So i thought i'd post this rather polarising topic.

If you're going to ask a ridiculous question, you may as well be pedantic. Cereal is just a term for a variety of food grains. What you're really asking is cereal combined with milk a type of soup.

TrPrado (441 D Mod)

I think that would necessitate us calling milk itself a soup, with cereal just being an accessory to the soup. So yes.
No! Soup is made of broth.

Once again ora is completely out of touch with the common man. Who gives a damn about ivory tower intellectual arguments about soup and cereal when the real issue the people actually care about is when soup ends and stew begins.
orathaic (1009 D (B))
27 Sep 15 UTC
@abge: Well if soup comes from the word meaning to soak, then even without milk cereal has the ability to soak, so i could call it a soaker...
orathaic (1009 D (B))
27 Sep 15 UTC
@TrPrado, then would you prefer cereal to be a salad??

To soup or not to soup that is the question.

The real controversy: how to spell "controversy"?
steephie22 (182 D (S))
27 Sep 15 UTC
Contraversies can be used to counter supposed controversies if you think they are not controversies:
"Controversy" is spelled "controversy". There is no controversy about the spelling of the word "controversy".

That's how you do a contraversy.
orathaic (1009 D (B))
27 Sep 15 UTC
How do you traverse a question? if not a contra-versial one...

contra- from Latin contra ‘against’.

What is so controversial about my spelling? Is it not phoenetic enough for you?

"The real controversy: how to spell "controversy"?"

Yeah, why the hell would you want soggy cereal? I do not understand people who put in the milk after.
TrPrado (441 D Mod)

I do a bowl with cereal with milk poured on top, then I pour more cereal on top of the residual milk once the former is finished, with preference given to the latter.

9,364,271 subscribers, and 875,778,804 total video views; puts this channel at 49th (sorting by total number of subscribers - not even in the top 100 by video views, as the 100th has a little over 2 billion)

So, eh, yeah. Apparently there is a website which gives quantitative backup to my qualitative claims... (see: https://socialblade.com/youtube/top/100 )

I guess we could segway into webdip's favourite youtubers...
