This calendar post is intended to alert people to upcoming events organized by the face-to-face Hobby. Shoot me a PM or post below and I'll try to keep this compiled. I'll be adding in a few I know of already as I have time. Currently these events in the US and elsewhere are occurring virtually, but I'm sure we're all hoping to get back to playing live as soon as possible.

December 2020

Cascadia Open (conducted virtually)


Virtual Events
The face-to-face Hobby's also organized a number of events that are planned as virtual events, possibly to continue after normal events resume. The interface is generally Discord for communications and backstabbr to host games.

Ongoing: Virtual Diplomacy League - roughly monthly game dates, to conclude in January 2021
December 18th-20th: Virtual World Diplomacy Classic - up to six rounds plus top board, scheduled for world-wide participation
February, dates TBD: Diplomacy Broadcast Network Invitational - 28 invitees based on results of other tournaments

These are not Face-to-Face Events.

In fact, we have here just online Diplomacy with videochat. The faces may be 1000 miles apart from each other. And a ranking system based on center counting doesn't make a FtF game, not even a Diplomacy game, you know it all.

Anyway, I understand that exact language isn't anymore what it used to be, and facts can be alternative, nowadays. And Trump has won the elections, and Neil Armstrong has never been on the moon, right? :?

Maybe they should create a new subforum of the Games forum: Virtual Games (or something similar).

I gonna propose that on the Suggestions forum.

Admittedly, yes, the current events I put on there are virtual and planned that way. I'll go back and indicate that. At the same time, they're largely being organized by the F2F Hobby rather than any of the online organizers.

The calendar is really meant for the tournaments that would normally be taking place in person, and by the end of next year certainly I expect will be - in referring to those as "face to face" even when they're happening virtually by necessity, I'm following what seems to be the consensus of the F2F Hobby.
