Preview: The 2018 Tournament through Time

Play a Diplomacy variant with a human GM using either forum PMs or Discord for communication. PbF games include a wider variety of maps and rules than what our site (or any site) can support!

For those following this thread, I've made some numeric changes to the tournament scoring plan. Eventually this will all be in its own thread, but I'm waiting on getting a subforum to start organizing this data.

The numbers can look a little crazy, but I promise that there is a method to the madness.

I don't want to run a team. I didn't do so hot in the last team tournament, but I'd be happy to work with others. Bigbert?

This looks like a very interesting idea.

What will the turn deadlines look like?

There's a description of the schedule on the House Rules thread, which is linked from the Preregistration thread.

For future readers of this thread:

Please post in the Preregistration Thread rather than here if you have interest playing in or observing this tournament. There are still some slots left, but they are filling up much faster than I anticipated.

Just thought I'd check in. I'm one of the PBEM players that our GM recruited. And all teamed-up, by the way, with some other PBEM-troglodytes. We're still working on a team name that best shows our sensitive natures, dedication to truth, ability to work well with others, and undying loyalty. However, I think "double-dealing, back-stabbing SOBs that speak with forked tongue" is taken.
