Jamiet99uk (25 D)

Ladbrokes, who I think are generally on the money, have England at 28/1 which I think is a more accurate price.
Maniac (344 D (B))

Maniac (344 D (B))

Ok, I'll have 25 D on France. After seeing them win 8-0 in their last warm-up game, I think they've got goals in them.

Third, if any of your bettors are minors...

I copied and pasted then cut out the buts below 33:1, so they match. I almost cut that one out, but thought "if it wins, I still make 26 D profit".

2ndWhiteLine (3375 D (B))
09 Jun 14 UTC
Just so we're clear on this, the site will not be sponsoring any pot nor will we facilitate any points transfer.

If we were, I would have 1000 on Columbia and another 1000 on Belgium. Just for fun, of course.
Draugnar (0 D X)
09 Jun 14 UTC
So it's all off cause the mods won't transfer the points. Good to know.

In that case, I'll find the optimal betting amount to guarantee me a profit and resubmit.
2ndWhiteLine (3375 D (B))
09 Jun 14 UTC
Its been pretty well established that we do not transfer or award points except in the case of site sanctioned tournaments. If you wanted to set up some kind of tournament - perhaps modeled after the World Cup with similar national and regional teams - and hold it every few years, you're more than welcome to do so.
Draugnar (0 D X)
09 Jun 14 UTC
I'm just as glad, 2WL. I'd rather not see more and more of these deals. I appreciated the April Fools day joke on March 31st :-), but too much of this distracts from the purpose of the site: the game of diplomacy. That's why I haven't gotten into any of the 3? mafia games. I mute them as soon as they come up.
hellalt (113 D)
09 Jun 14 UTC
the best team is undoubtedly Germany. But the cup will go to brazil cause otherwise they ll commit suicide again and also so that noone pays attention to the demands of the brazilian people. so, brazil will win germany in the semi finals and face argentina in the final winning 3-1. btw that's the score that goldman sachs suggests too.

I had a dream that the World Cup was won by the Barbarians, which was a team made up of the best players from nations that failed to qualify. But then I woke up and remembered that football was governed by a bunch of self serving tits and that things like that will never happen.
Fasces349 (0 D X)
10 Jun 14 UTC
well since the mods want to ruin our fun, the alternative is we play a couple of diplomacy games and set it up in such a way that the pots and the winners end up being the people who win the bets here.

Not sure how we could do it given how wide the range of bets are here...

Since it is quite evident to all that Maplepoo it yet another Canadian that really wishes he weren't, and he has obvious jealousy issue with the US - his desired dwelling place, but that his criminal record (or some such thing) is preventing him from becoming a US citizen, and thus he has taken to rather amusing constant stream of America bashing to try to soothe his saddened soul....let's take up a collection and send old maplepoo the biggest US flag we can find.

An Idea for World Games
Most of my recent games have been World, and I've found that once you get 20+ units, the list of orders can become quite unwieldy. Since you develop different "fronts" involving different sets of units, it'd be really cool to be able to arrange my own units to I could keep all of my South American guerrillas separate from my Mongolian hordes (Inner and regular). Would this be simple/worthwhile to incorporate?
