We are closing in on our 12th board this week - and we are about ready to announce our Thursday night event.


Trying to get it so y'all are less than 1/10th of the players, but you keep adding more people!
Stab you soon!

You are unlikely to make that work...since we are already like 15 strong...and I don't think you will get over 150

@DQ,

You might consider renaming your little event to the Playdiplomacy Diplomacy Championship ("PDC").

I'd be happy to help with rebranding the various T-Shirts, action figures, and promotional videos where necessary.

I was poring over a thread about Austria & Turkey as allies, and it was really striking how entrenched in the draw-size-based scoring the mindset is... two-way draws kept getting mentioned as a paragon of a strong result.

So I thought I would mention to all of the WDC attendees, if you haven’t already, learn the scoring model that is being used, in this case sum of squares. Not only are the incentives different, but even the pitches one is able to make diplomatically are different, than DSS. Don’t go into the event thinking about getting into two or three way draws, or you will be handicapping yourselves.
