Quick games?

Postby blacklucas1 » 21 Aug 2020, 09:12

I've played on webdiplomacy and playdiplomacy, but these multi-week games really drag on. Any tips on finding 5 to 15 minute turn games? Some sort of app or site? I prefer press to gunboat but I'm open to either.

And how long do they play out for, like over four hours? Because that's it's own set of problems.

Webdip can host 5 minute turns. Here they are min 15, but I now understand retreat and builds are 5 mins.

Try a live game on Playdip. Each turn lasts 15 minutes for orders & 5 minutes for retreats / builds. Keep an eye on the home page to see whether any live games are due to start, or you could create one yourself.
