The truth is you take too much credit... It was really me that made it all happen. I know it is hard to believe, but look at the data. Player called, "Mouse" signs up for a relatively cut-throat game that people are fairly skeptical to play because it is out of their comfort zone. But people see MOUSE and think... "Hell, I can kill them!". Anyone called MOUSE is easy pickings. All of sudden people flock to the game. So really, the credit belongs to me...

I am sorry, but we need a calling on the last statement of "Hobbit Droppings". It is my understanding that Hobbits "drop" all the time but it is not in the nature of the unspoken but understood competition. I request that "Hobbit Droppings" be struck from the records.

Nice job with the map and colors on Middle Earth VIII, presser.

Five Armies:
Mordor has a powerful position, which is (a bit unbalenced but) realistic.
The northwestern player (light-blue) is the second-best starting position in my opinion (should it be?)

Middle Earth VIII:
Mordor is relatively weak.
I would think The Shire should be a neutral SC?

Anyway, just my first impressions. Godd luck and have fun.


30-years ago I made a variant. It was based off England. It encompassed the powers within the country and those that wanted to enter said country. The time period was roughly 1066 and was grossly inaccurate. I think it was a 8-player game. It had flaws. I ran the game on a board at high school. So long ago and my memory is fading. It was not balanced.

What I want to express is that we all know that Diplomacy is not a balanced game. If it was a balanced game then I would have more chance of winning. I am a piss poor diplomat. The beauty of the game is the asymmetrical aspects. It is not a fair game. You get unlucky on the draw. But like life, you deal with what you are dealt. Even those countries doomed to failure can turn the tide. That is what makes the game have depth. The powerful countries at game start are recognized as such and they better do a lot of sweet talking unless the lands rise against them. You talk as if the game is a two player one without diplomacy; diplomacy makes all the difference.

I would like to counter by saying that Hobbits always have been ignored and overlooked, which has led to the destruction of all evil. If you discriminate against Hobbits, who knows what might happen to you...
