MeFi Diplomacy 2014 round 2 is now open for participants. If you'd like to take part, go to PlayDiplomacy and search for game 86044. Specs about the game inside. [more inside]
This is the metatalk thread for the MeFi Diplomacy game "Metafilter1"(on playdiplomacy.com) spawned by the recent Grantland boardgames thread. To enable maximum kibitzing, I would like to encourage all PUBLIC game related communications to take place in this thread. PRIVATE communications, of course, can still take place through in-game channels. Robocop is bleeding has offered himself up as unofficial reporter/biographer/historian for the game, so we'll see where he takes that. I will try to post periodic links to up-to-date maps in this thread, but you can also watch the game by signing up at playdiplomacy.
The 41st podcast was recorded on Monday, May 18th and runs about an hour. It covers the past month of activities on and off the site. [more inside]
Diplomacy round two? All the original Diplomacy games have wrapped up at this point, and there seems to be some interest in a second round. Just starting a thread in case anyone missed the first round and wanted to join in.
I've gone ahead and created a MeFi wiki page for our little Diplomacy-playing subcommunity (spawned in this MeTa thread). [more inside]
