See Conq's Face (FtF game, Seattle, WA)

Postby Conq » 23 May 2018, 19:14

People have been trying to take a photograph of my face for years,with no success. This could be your chance.

I am organizing a Seattle face-to-face game with some very strong face-to-face players and some mediocre online players. If you play Diplomacy, live in the Seattle area, and would be interested in a high-level face-to-face game, drop me a line or reply to this post.

You shouldn't be so hard on yourself--you're at least a tiny bit better than mediocre.

Not sure you should be publishing movie reviews if you've only seen the trailer.

There is no doubting the pull of your face. It's special.

I think it is your civic duty to do a video for DQ's WDC Teaser Trailer Series. Then we'd have you on repeat all over the house. We could set it to epic, Conq-face-worthy music.

But alluring though your face is..... free cake has it.

I'll travel anywhere for a gin cocktail and cake.

Sinny's a bit higher maintenance.

But she'll do anything for a beetroot salad.

Special thank you to Playdip's "edmgrim," Webdip's "ghug" and "cspeiker," and Nathan Barnes and Eric Mead of FtF tournament fame for a great house game in Seattle over the weekend.

I had a lot of fun, even though:

- Damn, time limits are tough.
- Damn, writing orders correctly is tough.

Man, I had really become pretty cocky and insufferable about Diplomacy, but having to do it all face-to-face was humbling to say the least. It's a very different game, and it's not an easy one.
