Wow! Play by WhatsApp sounds fun.
How did the game go? Was WhatsApp an effective medium?
I'm not sure how Paristonda uses WhatsApp exactly, but me and my friends sometimes just set up the physical board and then pull out our phones and message each other. It has some nice bonuses:
1. Like online Dip, you don't know for sure who is writing who.
2. You can forward messages easily.
3. WhatsApp groups are SO easy to start! (Like, make a group called the "EU", and then add the other 6 players to it for a public press feature
[public press, other than word of mouth that is]
4. Saves paper=saves cleaning up a mess...(certain people I know in RL might insist on burning messages...)
So yeah, I really like using WhatsApp. It helps though, if everyone has a phone, and you're all connected to WiFi, rather than Data.
