Blitz Press - Regularly Scheduled Games Here!

#1 Post by captainmeme » Mon Jul 18, 2022 10:33 pm

We're building a community to run regular Blitz (live) games here, with games coming in between 2 and 2.5 hours long. The general rules are:

Rulebook Press (No negotiation in Retreats or Builds)
Anonymous
5min/phase Diplomacy phases, 2min/phase Retreats/Builds
Sum of Squares Scoring
1908 End Year (Force draw if the game reaches the end of '08)

We have a discord server here: https://discord.gg/6DrHwdvfUn but you don't need to join it, all games will be posted in this thread too.

Our first game is a crossover with Nexus Leagues, to ensure that we get enough players. It runs until 1910 instead of the standard 1908.
