Anyone play Diplomacy? Just started an online game through a different forum and it is quite cool. Simple turn based, can be set over a day so no issue with timings. More strategy than tactical.
Anyone up for a EduGeek game?
Game 1 - 58674

I'd be keen. Used to play the board game 20+ years ago and loved it!

I was an addict 35 years ago - I'm up for a nostalgic run out
In the old days - never managed to get more than 4 people to play at same time
PS I'd have to play a refresher game first before going for TOTAL EUROPEAN DOMINATION !

Well I am playing my first ever game at the moment so it'll be fairly even playing field. 7 players would be good but looks like we can have anything under that. Just makes the battlefield that more sparse.
I'll start a roll call in the first post and see how we go.

Sounds like my kind of game.. I might have to add this to my list of 'To-be-tried'
To win you have to be strategic and diplomatic, making deals and alliances with other players, and stabbing them in the back when it suits you best.

I used to play the board game before graduating to Axis & Allies. Might have to pick this up again

@Garacesh & @ICTDirect_Dave want to be counted in?

Sure, why not? I've not created an account/downloaded anything/whatever it is you have to do (I haven't checked yet) but I'll look into it later.

Would love to play, need to have a good read of the rules first though

Well that is a game full, if any others want to play then we could run a second game.
All you have to do is sign up to the website I'll generate a game and post the code and the password. You can pick up the game as you go along, it is very simple really, just can be played in depth.

Rules are here http://www.playdiplomacy.com/help.php
If you really like rule porn then there is this guide to see how in depth it can go and to give some pointers.
Search on teh web and you'll find whole essays written on tactics.
Biggest noob issue someone told me was that you only capture areas in the Fall (even turns) if a unit is stationed somewhere. Not if the unit is passing through.
