(AAR POSTED!) Diplomacy in New York City, December 17th

Postby Niakan » 08 Dec 2011, 10:09

Okay guys,

Time to try another shot at a face-to-face game in Manhattan. It worked the first time, and didn't the second or third times, so let's see if we can pull something together now.

I'm open all weekend from the 16th to the 18th (Friday through Sunday)... I prefer a Saturday or Sunday game because there will be more time to play during the day, which might be better for people that live outside the city. Something like 12PM works for me, but like I said I'm open and flexible.

I'm offering my apartment in Harlem to host it -- it's easy to get to by mass transit, being by the A,C,2,3,4, and 6 lines (the 2/3 line is literally right around the block from me), and it's even easier to get to by car -- about 7 minutes from the GWB, 5 minutes from the RFK, two blocks away from the onramp/offramp of the FDR Drive. About a 10 minute crosstown trip from the Hudson River Drive if you're coming from that way -- easier to cross the island in Harlem ;).

If getting back the same day is an issue (drinking, late-running game, etc.) I've got enough room for two people to stay overnight.


I'm also trying on Meetup.com to see if we can get one or two from there, and I'll ask my friends to fill in any gaps if we should have them -- All I really need is 2-3 people from this site minimum and we can get a game together. The more from here the merrier though -- it's always more fun with people that don't know each other.


So let's see who's interested and we can work out any more details. Any takers?

Will actually be in midtown on the 18th for a fantasy football league meetup. What time would you be thinking of starting?

Hoping for noon or earlier, but this can be adjusted based on if we have any out-of-towners we have coming in (obviously if everyone is local we can start later in the day -- and so far everyone that's signed up is local). Probably expecting an 8 hour game or so, so it would be an all-day thing. Let me know what your schedule looks like -- starting time is flexible.

Thanks for the invite - I'll be busy that entire weekend, but please keep me in mind for any other F2F Dip games you host.

cheers

Hey guys, there is a yahoo group for diplomacy games in NYC. I sent them a link to this topic so they can join in. I don't live in New York but I did at one time. They are a good group.

Great, thanks for your help skyblueshu. Ideally we can get a good mix of players for this.

Again, we only need two more to make this successful (I can fill in with friends), but I'd prefer more if possible so that I don't have to do that, and better yet if we find 7 players and I don't even have to play! (I'm better at drinking than playing F2F Dip anyway)

If it turns out to just be local guys presser we could probably swing a later game -- last time we had guys coming in from Connecticut which was why I made it an early one then. I'll keep you informed.

Got one more player interested from outside the site. This will probably fill up -- I'm going to wait to see if I get any more email replies today and then we'll start hammering down the date and time as I try to pick up the last player or two. Again as it stands right now just one or two more players and we could manage the game, but I'd prefer more so that I don't have to fill up half the slots with players that are used to playing with each other, to keep things better balanced.

Things are really shaping up now! One more player and we have a definite game on our hands. :) I'm going to start collecting emails now, so expect some PMs in your inboxes.
