I'd change the points upwards for a solo (12?), otherwise with the bonus points for SC counts, a 2 way draw is worth 9 points for somone, so it makes the solo not worth going for.

Just a ssggestion.

Ah yes, you're right, I should have upped the points for a solo after adding bonuses for the draws.


EDIT: I made it 13 -- This gives a player that solos in one of the rounds a guaranteed ticket to the final, which should encourage solo-play, and which I think is appropriate for a player that solos 50% of his games leading up to the final round. ;D

I'm in - though I've only played like one gunboat game. Diplomacy without Diplomacy. But I love FOW!

When I've got a lot of current games on my hands, but I'm itching for a new one still, I play gunboat. It's diplomacy with 1/10th of the brain power involved. Glad to have you aboard!

I just played a gunboat game again, just to remember what it was like, and I remember now that II hate Gunboat. No Diplomacy - that is the only reason I play this game. Chess and Go are much better for strategy and tactics!

Sorry, I have to drop out of this tournament - I forgot I just don't like gunboat...

I'll join. I could use some more losses on my record.
