2021 Virtual Tour of Britain

Postby Phlegmatic » 01 Jan 2021, 15:01

Good afternoon Playdippers, and Happy New Year to you all!

You are hereby invited to play in the 2021 virtual Tour of Britain.

This will be an online tournament in the "virtual face to face" style that has recently proved so successful for this type of event.

There will be eight rounds, and each player's best four scores will be counted. You may play in as many or as few games as you wish.
There are no geographical restrictions - although this is the Tour of Britain, it is open to all nationalities.

Play will be on a standard Diplomacy board through the Backstabbr interface, and negotiations will be carried out by voicechat on Discord. This has proven to be a very effective combination and simple to use, with it rapidly becoming the standard for the vFTF community.

Games will be played on the following weekends:

6/7 March 2021
12/13 June 2021
11/12 September 2021
27/28 November 2021

What are the rules? Classic Diplomacy (draw based ranking) or CCC (center count and/or cropped) Dip?

Hi Jack,

It will be time-limited to end after Fall 1910. I would prefer to make it open-ended but asking a large number of people (including the GMs) to commit to a game with no known endpoint is likely to reduce the numbers more than I would like.

However, I know you'd like to play some games in the pure form and I think it would be great to have at least one stand-alone game in this format in the coming months, so keep reminding me and I will set something up for those players who value the game in its purest style :)
