Modern - started - Reserves wanted

Postby UpQuark » 19 Aug 2012, 07:01

This post was originally written by Sanguinem, and most of what follows is his. I have amended the "author" to UpQuark so that he can edit the player list, since this is where most players expect to find it. Pedros

Once again, I'm looking to see if anyone wants to play and/or GM a game of Modern. It's a 10 player variant set in 1995 Europe. The last game died when the GM disappeared. Maybe this time we could take a real shot at it?

I'm dying to play another game. It's by far my favourite variant, as it almost feels like a "fixed", bigger version of the original game. IF someone would like to take up the mantle of GM, i would personally appreciate it, and then all we need is 9 more players (and maybe some alternates).

And this is UpQuark's sign-up post

Reserve List
    pedros

Question for all of you - there are 2 versions, with and without Wing units (airplanes). Both have been play-tested and are worthwhile and balanced variants. Which is preferred?

Votes for Wing Units: 7
Votes to NOT use Wing Units: 2
Abstain: 1
No votes received: 0

Its still on my longer term list. I can run it through RealPolitik which makes adjudication MUCH easier.

Well, that's one. Anyone else want to play the greatest Diplomacy variant ever created?

I'm interested, but what are the countries on the right side of the board? My map is blocked out there.

I'd like to play this one too.
More than half of Diplomacy games are ruined because players leave them half-way.
