Again with the Diplomacy! Last Friday’s post garnered a lot of comments in a short period of time, and it was terrific to hear so many great stories about this game that many of us have a love/hate relationship with. I hope to answer your comments shortly. They all made me quite nostalgic and I went and pulled my original copy off the shelf.
It’s a little stained and battered in a few places, but not bad for it’s forty+ years and the sight of that board and artwork still gives me a bit of a shiver.
So here’s the deal.
Who’s in for a blind email game?
I’ll act as the referee and the point of contact.
I’ll take names via email, mad padre (at) gmail (dot) com. Let me know your three preferences for the country you want to play in descending order. If I have more than seven players, I’’ll do my best to figure out who plays what. You have until this Saturday night at midnight EST to get in on this.
All diplomacy will go through me. Turns will be two weeks calendar time. Moves, updates, and snide comments will be posted regularly on this blog.
Come on, you know you want to!
