#174465 - Slow game - 5/2/2 Strict Classicist (7/7)

Postby MasterSifu » 10 Apr 2020, 05:31

Hey folks,

Hope everyone is staying safe and well.

Looking to get back in the swing of things after a few years away. I prefer long, slow games (5/2/2 or 7/2/2, possibly no weekends). Anyone interested? If there's interest, I will try and muddle through setting up a game.

EDIT: based on interest from folks, this will be a 5/2/2. I will ask for no weekends, and no holidays, as I have young kids and I fear that my lovely wife, lifelong ally, may slide the knife in and go for solo if I play on the weekends/holidays ;)

EDIT 2: And we have 7! Wahey! Off we go... Game #174465. Generic Diplomacy Title.

Best,
MasterSifu

Yes please. 5/2/2 is my preference.
I would be interested in playing Ancient Med if we can find only 5 players, or War In The Americas (I haven't tried this yet) if we can find enough for that more.
I'm not currently a Premium Member, but have some Premium Credits I could use to join a variant map game.

Do you dislike games spoiled by surrenders and missed orders? If so, please consider adding your name to the database of reliable players at The Classicists

Great to have you aboard Sheddy! 5/2/2 works for me.

I wouldn't be opposed to Ancient Med, but I'm not premium either. Happy to upgrade to premium if there's interest for an Ancient Med game. My preference would be the classic version if we can muster 7 though.

Hey all, I would be interested in a slower paced game. Not familiar with the non-standard types, but I could read up on them if we are about to commit to one.

Count me in please, assuming I'm approved for membership.

Most games I've seen &/or participated in on PlayDip have been 24 hours or less. Nothing wrong with it, but I quite fancy a slow game with proper communication this time. I'd like a 5-2-2 format, as it'll take me back to my F2F days.

Have now been approved for Bronze membership.

Familiar with standard Diplomacy, less so with the variants - I've been playing mostly non-rank games to help me familiarise with them.
