Seeing as how the game hasn't even come close to starting, any objection to re-making it DIAS?

Why not just join it? DIAS is good but it does not prevent 2 way draws......It may delay it, but not prevent it.

That's certainly true, but the delay is what I value. Too many times have I been a part of an alliance heading toward a two-way and my partner proposes the draw well before either of us is near 18 centers. I can deal with the two-way draw, but I hate cutting the game short and not even seeing if one of us would stab the other. DIAS at least prevents that.

You could always just... you know... reject the offer.

True, but that certainly telegraphs your intention.

Anyway, I was just reminded of why I strongly prefer DIAS and I haven't seen a really good argument against it.

I can change it to DIAS for you if that is what you would like. I'm also up for joining the game, particularly if you do make it DIAS.
