New Old Player

Postby TasTheKender » 01 Nov 2017, 19:03

Good morning, Diplomacy Community!

I've played standard Diplomacy since college in the 80's, as well as pb-email since the mid-1990s. I consider myself a true fan of the A&E and 1900 variants and look forward to playing some games here on Play Diplomacy.

I'm a married Civil Engineering exec at a private firm in Sacramento, CA, with three wonderful kids, a dog, two cats, a snake, some goldfish, and almost 20 chickens (Farmer Frank). Aside from Diplomacy, my hobbies include golf (I'm not bad), soccer (I used to be good but Father Time is catching up) and reading good books (mostly fantasy but the occasional business book or fiction slips in from time to time).

Cheers and good luck in our games together. May the press flow freely!

Frank

Hey Frank. Welcome back to the hobby! Always a bonus to see lovers of variants join the site. See you in a game some time.

After you've settled into the site, if you want to venture into even more variants be sure to check out the Play-by-Forum Dip section in the forum. We're always running variants old and new in there, and the more players signing up the better.

Welcome Frank/TasTheKender

Of course we would be open to a donation of a chicken for the annual PbF Awards Banquet (more of a potluck). There's a great community here to get involved with, especially with the Classicists and the PbF'ers. Sounds like you also would fit in well with the Oldies. We're a cantankerous group, but now and then a good Oldies game starts.

Glad to have you here.

How many kids total? :D

Seriously, though -- welcome! I got my start in FTF games in the 80s too, so it's good to know there are more of us out there.

Frank is actually signed up for the Tournament Through Time, so we'll be seeing him in a PbF game fairly soon, I'd wager.
