Invitation to the WDC

Postby Big Gun » 22 Apr 2018, 22:48

Greetings PlayDip Friends!

Please join me and the crème de la crème of the Diplomacy hobby for 3 unforgettable days of fun, action, treachery and stabbing at this year’s WDC in Washington D.C. from 5th – 7th October!

I’ve been giving this tournament some serious consideration. My intention with this message is to plant a seed in your mind that you need to be there too. If you will allow that seed to germinate a little, that’s all you need to convince yourself that yes, this is the most important event of your year! Worth every penny. Who cares about money? Take out a loan! Max out your credit card! Steal money from your Mom! Sell your car!

Thinking back to the year 2017 – for me and those who were there – the WDC in Oxford, UK, was by far the most excellent and exhilarating long weekend of the year, packed with fun, excitement, banter, booze and brilliant new friends. I loved it. I need to do it again. It’s a must.

For those of you who, like me, need to fly long distance from wherever you are –
I plan to fly in on Wednesday 3rd October and relax on Thursday, recover from jetlag, maybe visit a few landmarks and be fresh for the board call on Friday morning. And stay over on Sunday night to wind down in peace, flying back on Monday 8th October without stress. So a five night stay.

The world’s leading experts of our hobby, including many former world champions are all signed up and ready to go. This is the one gig of the year you don’t want to miss. It will be outrageously fun and incredibly splendid. Please join me. Please join as proud and confident PlayDippers. Let us show the Face-to-Face diplomacy community that we are a force to be reckoned with!

Sign up and let’s give them a run for their money. Don’t be shy. Do it. Do it now!

Sign up and let’s play!

I'll be there. I'll also be organizing a playdippers dinner once we get a bit closer to the event. Looking forward to meeting you in person, BG, and all the other (hopefully numerous!) playdippers at the event.

This'll be an awesome event, I hope to see a bunch of playdippers show out!
