    To split off from the General Boardgames thread, I've created a thread for the first EG Diplomacy game. Special thanks goes to Fillip for setting up the games.

    Link to website

    To join, sign up on the website, the go to the Games tab, select Join Game and search for the game number. Passwords will be sent by PM. The rules of the game will also be on the website.

    Discussion and negotiation can be done via the website, or by EG pm if you prefer, or even email if you want to give someone your email address. There is one turn a day so it's best if you have regular access to the internet for a couple of weeks or so. I'm sure the turn limit could be increased if this is not possible for everyone.

    Hopefully we won't all hate each other too much by the end of it :)


    Game 1
    The game number is 58422. Password will have been PMed to you by Fillip.

    Players:
    andytheadequate - France
    AccidentProne - Britain
    Mcgeeza - Russia
    cubbymoore (replaced by Redlander after 3 turns, but was a no-show so Cubby took over again!) - Austria
    fillip - Italy
    Acid_Snake -Ottoman Empire
    DarkMorgado - Germany



    Game 2

    The game number is 58436.

    Players:
    fauxC - Germany
    philreeduk - Britain
    onestepfromlost - Turkey
    DFawkes - France
    Macmurphy - Italy
    Xerx3s (actionInvoke) - Austria
    Khanivor - Russia

    Game 2 is now full. If you haven't received the password by PM then let me know.

    Result: Four way draw between Austria (12), Italy (9), Germany (5), France (8)

    Game 3
    Game 3 has been set up, the game number is: 58484.

    Players:
    Waffleaber - Italy
    MrTomFTW - France
    Alastair - Austria
    RedSparrows - Turkey
    ScoutTech - Germany
    BurgerDave - UK
    Salaman - Russia



    Reserves/Game 4
    Tomo

    No Shows
    Philreeduk
    Redlander


    A polite note, if you can't commit to play regularly then don't put your name down, it spoils the game for everyone else if there is a no show or someone doesn't do any negotiations. If some people want to play less seriously, perhaps we could create a game where each turn lasts 48 hours for those people?

    @Khanivor - 7. A few people may be willing to play in more than one game so even if we can't get another 7 for the second game I'm sure people would be able to fill in.

    I'll update the original post with anyone who is interested in playing

    Passwords sent to the seven listed in the first post.

    We could get a second game sorted. I think there are four interested already.

    Ok. I've set up an extra game:

    58436. EG Reserves Game

    At http://www.playdiplomacy.com/

    Andy, can you start a second list of players in your in your initial post.
    I'll send on passwords or will it do any harm to just post it on here and leave it first come first served.

    Send out the password invites to the people who've shown an interest, and then later tonight or tomorrow post it on the thread if there is still space in the game.

    Is it possible to set the time for the end of the turn? I imagine it's best if it's fairly late at night...

    @andytheadequate It's not possible. In our case we have a maximum of 24 hours to get orders in. If we all submitted our orders within 2 hours the turn would be processed immediately and the next 24 hour countdown begin. So the timing of a turn will change constantly throughout a game. You will receive emails at the resolution of every turn so its not so difficult to keep track.

    Fair enough, will we be able to change it to 2 days midway through if we need to? Just worried people may not be able to commit enough time some days...

    No. The time limit is set from the start and can't be changed.

    If you want to change it we should do it now. It will mean abandoning this lobby and setting up a new game. If that is the case I would recommend 2 days for orders and 1 day for build and retreat.

    I'm easy and is not too difficult to get everyone to sign in again.

    I should be fine with 1 day, what does everyone else think though? Do people have access to the internet most of the time?

    1 day should be fine for me too. Won't know for sure until we start playing though, but I can't see it being a problem.

    Sorry, didn't realise it would all kick off straight away! I've checked my PM and can't see a password.

    I'm potentially game as well if there's any spaces still going.

    Passwords sent to Tomo and Cubby.

    Unless there is someone I've missed, we only need one more person for a full game in game 2.

    Is everyone happy with the 1 day turn limit? Obviously you'll need to have regular internet access through the day as you'll need to do the negotiating as well as just doing your movements...

    I have access for some of the day, mostly lunch time and evenings, just how much negotiating is involved??

    Quite a lot. Will probably need to exchange a few emails to 3 or 4 players each turn, maybe more

    If you have access at lunch times and evenings that should be plenty

    Okay. By the way it says that everyone else in the game is awaiting confirmation, it sends another email to you when you join the game which gives you a link to confirm with. Seems a bit weird that (it looks on my log in anyway) nobody else has done this yet.

    It's because (I assume as I've only just received the email) it only sends that email out once the last person has joined the game.

    3/7 have confirmed now I believe
