Hi Woolgie, I've signed up for SpireCon. It's a great initiative. Will you publish a list of the players who've signed up so far? This would attract other players, who are still on the fence about attending. I've been plugging it amongst my contacts, but a typical reaction is: who else is coming?

Looking forward to meeting soon!

Excellent news Big Gun. Looking forward to meeting you.

I can't list names as I don't know if they'd want me to reveal that. I can say we've got 12 registered for diplomacy so far, from 8 different countries. We're aiming for 21 for three boards. Overall across different games we're at 25 registered and we're expecting a turnout of 50-70 people.

Those are positive looking numbers Woolgie. Well done.

Frankly, I haven't played diplomacy for ages and I don't miss it. But I'm looking forward to reconnecting with people and sharing a few beers and drams. I figure as I'm pretty much without any ambitions for the tournament, that makes me a viable ally for anyone. :roll:

See you there!
