Anything about the Diplomacy game in general.

Ooh, there's an idea - The CJ 92 Award for Best Spammer.

I'll probably get people to PM their votes. You can just copy and paste the awards and their nominations, and eliminate the ones you aren't voting for, or something like that to make it easy. You don't have to vote for all of them either, of course.

cool idea. its going to be hard to decide on some awards though like, best player, best stab, ect...

and less is more. especially in this first year.

Nominations with Links will be helpful if we discuss it. I suggest we nominate a slate of individuals for each category to make the voting easier, and if folks want to do a write up that would be helpful as well.

Alright, Stander's post in the Suggestions forum has kicked me into gear again.

A possible list:

Best Tactician
Best Strategist
Best Diplomat
Most Loyal Ally
Best Stabber
Sith Lord
Jedi Master

Prime Minister of the Year (Best player of England)
President of the Year (Best player of France)
Kaiser of the Year (Etc...)
Pope of the Year
Archduke of the Year
Tsar of the Year
Sultan of the Year

Overall Player of the Year

Best Stab
Strangest In-Game Sighting
Best Defense
Best Comeback
(Best Use of Convoy? Most Creative Move? Best Shoutbox Message? Other in-game stuff?)

Favourite Thread
Funniest Poster
Master Debater (Heh..hehe...)
Best Strategy Theorist
Most Knowledgeable Poster (I'm not sure if I mean rules-wise, or general worldly stuff-wise...I'm just trying to fill out the awards for posters a bit here)
Overall Poster of the Year


Once again, there's quite a few. It's hard to cut some of them, though...

you could cut down on the poster awards if you are trying to cut down that is. like best poster? how would one define that? and favorite thread? they all serve their purpose....

and i would change this name. for obvious reasons... ;)

Are there going to be nominees for each category like in the oscars? That would be cool.

Yeah, I was thinking of just scrapping the poster ones. Maybe next year. Focus just on in-game stuff this year.

And yes, there will be nominees. In fact, you all need to help nominate said nominees. I don't want to look through games myself for stabs and good tacticians and great Turkey players, etc. ;)

This'll run past Dec 19, PlayDip's birthday, but oh well - it's the season that's important, not the exact date.

Great Turkey players... that has an odd ring to it.

So PlayDip started on the 7th anniversary of when I started dating my wife...

Is this a sign that I should be playing more here? :)

Perhaps it does... but then that depends on if you want to continue dating your wife or not ;)
