Looking forward to meeting those of you I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting yet, and to seeing old friends again. And best of luck in the Diplomacy rounds... unless you’re attacking me, obviously!

Attacking Dave is generally a mistake.


Eric...regardless of whether it’s the right tactical round to drop or not...on a personal level, I’d rather drop Friday evening, because I’d rather worry about myself being at my best than about who is playing when. Likely a case of confidence to the point of hubris? Yes. Still what I’m going to base my decisions off of, though. 60+% of being good at diplomacy is believing that you’re good at it, after all, so I see no reason to work around others when it comes to the drop round.


I agree with this. That’s why I flew in Wednesday night.
When playing at war, always remember the origins of war:
1) I raid your cave to steal food and kidnap your women.
2) You raid my cave to steal food and kidnap my women.
3) Someone's kid gets hurt.
4) It all goes downhill from there

Thank you so much for being so nice to me at wdc, SM!
Wonderful to have someone keep an eye out for me!
I was having a rough time and you helped make it better!
You took my well-being into account on several occasions.
You helped me laugh, you helped me breathe, you helped me feel more comfortable.
I am in your debt.

Really great of you to help me out by getting rid of the signature font color too :)

Would any of the other PlayDippers who were at WDC be interested in a ranked 48/24/24 game on here?

Yeah. I have no idea what came over me. I certainly wasn’t myself. <<grin>>
