Is it an alternative to take in voluntary extras to pdl3 from the other two leagues?

Not awarding them points or gains in standing, but just to get enough players to attend that you can get a game going for those who are left in the league?

More soon

hopefully this promise doesn't go out for two months+ like a WHS promise of boards getting out.

Has anyone heard from Mike, in or out of a game?
He’s vanished & RL is probable cause. Can be such a drag sometimes...
Hope all is well & looking forward to a round 4 game including our esteemed leader.

Real life is a little messy at the moment, apologies all. But mainly what I am doing is trying to get a few new faces in to fill up PDL 3 and keep it (barely) alive. I have the fixtures and boards ready for PDL 1 & 2. It does indeed sound like a somewhat broken record but everything issued very shortly.

I'm waiting on a few more replies to some PMs in the hope I can keep things running. It would be a shame to lose PDL 3 at the final stage.

I hadn't considered asking PDL 1 & 2 members to stand in, an interesting thought. Although I imagine most people have enough on the go without taking on 2 new games at once!

I’ll take on an extra game if needed. I’ll be butchered out of my current games soon anyway.

I'm sure there would be a few volunteers (already there are 2 it seems). I'd personally pass on doubling up, but I'd guess you'll have a decent sized crowd of people who'd actively want more games with the league group and would find the "B team" concept to be fun.

“Games will be password protected and players will be PM'd details of each game as and when it starts. Games will (roughly) start on 1 Jan/Mar/May/Jul each year.”

I thought I’d quote from the PDL rules we signed up for. Could we at least start round 4 in August? I never play Diplomacy over Christmas & a potential 3-month contest starting in September...
