WDC 2018 - Washington DC - October 5-7

Postby Conq » 11 Jul 2017, 22:13

That's it. I'm sick of being jealous of all these people and their pub crawls. I'm tired of playing diplomacy silently at sadly at my computer. I'm wary of the fact that I've played this game for years, but I've never actually met another diplomacy player in real life. And I'm curious how much better than me this traveling band of face-to-face diplomats really is.

Conq is going to WDC in 2018! Get hyped!

Do people usually plan for these things over a year in advance?

I am certainly planning to go there. Conq - we have not played here online together. People say you're a passably good adversary. :D It would be a pleasure to share blows with you in DC

Mrs Big Gun will stay at home and nurse my credit card when I'm in DC. We've agreed to correlate her spending in inverse proportion to my play results. If I play well, she starves. If I play miserably, she goes down to Harrods, London and splashes,

Mrs Big Gun also says she'll consider Marseilles in 2019 if I put her up in a five star hotel on the beach where she can drink cocktails all day and sunbathe. Maybe an option for Mrs Conq, Mrs gsmx, Mrs Carebear and Mrs WarSmith?

Either way, I'm hooked and look forward to seeing you all for Face-to-Face. It is so much, much more than playing online. MUCH MORE!

There are perhaps 30 players out there who were at WDC this year, who play Face-to-Face better than most anyone here on this sight might possible hope for.

Anyway, they kicked my ass and I am not ashamed :mrgreen:

@Big Gun, looking forward to it! And note: I have an impressive list of people saying I am less than passable as well.

Also, I've definitely considered that Marseilles beach vacation angle with the Mrs. -- I'm sure we're not the only two. Figured I'd hold off on that until after WDC 2018, as I may be too embarrassed to show my face again.
