    Ah, should have realised it was my fault :)

    Is there still a slot in game 2? Or probably more important to me right now, what is Diplomacy?

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    @DFawkes - I believe there is. Have a read up on the website of what the game is about. Imagine Risk but with negotiation rather than dice rolling

    Oh I know this game, I had it for PC. Count me in. I'm not very good but I do enjoy taking part :)

    A bit of light(ish) reading for anyone new to the game or, like me, very forgetful:

    http://math.stanford.edu/~petermc/diplomacy/Gamers%20Guide%202ed.pdf

    There is a handy section on each of the countries/powers. Quite useful once you find out who you are playing. I'll need it if I draw Italy or Germany as I've never played them before. But will gladly take either of them over Austria.

    Oh, and my one rule clarification that tends to be the main mistake of new players:

    In order to capture a supply centre you have to occupy the province in the Fall of a year. If, say, one army moves into a supply centre in Spring and then on to a second in Fall you will only get the second supply centre.

    Confirmed yesterday...Bit of a hectic time at work so I'm not sure if I'll always be there to negotiate...

    Anyway here's my standard "out of office" negotiation:

    "Hi there [country adjacent to my location], I really like you and would like to help you attack [other country adjacent to my location], honestly I'm not saying the same thing to them..."

    Copy paste...

    I'm up for joining game 3. I too have never played, but would like to propose an alliance with ScoutTech.

    Am I doing this right?

    Not as nice as I used to be

    Will add you guys to the list for game 3. Anyone know who is the extra player in game 2? Will add them to the list if so

    I can only see 4 players in the Game 2 lobby. Is it not macmurphy? He was sent a password.

    I think that it is tomo, khanivor and macmurphy(?) left to join for the second 7. I sent khanivor and macmurphy the password. Did tomo get one off Andy?

    Stick me in a game please. Only played this a few times, a long while ago.

    I'm the nice one, honest.

    @macmurphy - the game should have some space as there has only been four people join so far. Can you retry the password (and make sure you use the game number of game 2)...?

    @Red- added to game 3 list. And no-one is nice in diplomacy :)

    If the people who haven't joined from game 2 are having problems, if you PM me I'll send you the details again. If you no longer want to play, let me know and I'll invite people from Game 3...

    How many people do you need for a game? Does it *have* to be 7?

    It's far better with 7, although you could play it with less. I'd be willing to play in two games if we can't get enough numbers for game 3

    Yeah I'm in. I was being a biff. On the first page of the thread it says go to games tab and select active games, but you have to pick the join games tab. When I was searching under active games nothing came up (obviously, as the game hadn't started). Really obvious, it bodes well for the other players in the group that I'm such a tit. It was early I was rushing. Done now, waiting on Tomo and Khanivor.

    @fillip - France for me. I'm looking forward to a peaceful co-existance with all my southern Europe brothers in Italy :)

    Ohh this looks kind of fun. I'm presuming you have to access the game everyday? How long does it take roughly?

    @Jetset_UK - yeah, will have to be online a couple of times a day really for a couple of weeks (give or take a few days)

    If you are struggling to get online one day, there appears to be a "name a substitute option", if you want to trust someone else to take your turn for you...

    As soon as I read this this morning I knew I'd be Austria, and guess what!

    In the last game I played IRL, Austria utterly crushed me when I was Russia, so don't despair!
