Hello. After a break of who knows how long, I thought I'd dip my toe back in. Let's be honest, the world is going slightly mad out there (I hope everyone is safe and well), and its things like this game that I'm hoping will alleviate my boredom while the UK is on lockdown. Don't know if anyone remembers me, but if they do (with any form of fondness!) and are trying to start a game up then send me a message and I'll join.

Mike,

Remember you? My favourite PlayDip participant of all time! The author of the best idea PlayDip has had in years! You should see how your brainchild is doing. We still get quitters, so join...
The world is always crazy. It just depends on if we put punctuation marks, caused by Coronavirus & the like, in the sentences of madness. I tend to assume it’s hopelessly crazy always, so disregard it’s even worse moments, like right now.
I’m playing PDL Rev2. It’s really good & can recommend it. All games are extraordinary in their own way. Don’t know if I could join you in a game immediately (I’m on 3, which is about max for me) but so many welcomes back to this particular madhouse. I hope it serves as a break from the other one we term as reality,

All the best V

Welcome back, Mr. Parrett! Oh I remember you, passive-aggressively as 'that dude' that convinced me (Germany) to attack Austria around mid-game time frame. You were Italy. It's still one of my most fondly-remembered games.

Love to see you in your brainchild, the PDL, at some point in the future. Or another game although I've decided that two simultaneous games is about all I can play effectively.

Glad you're back. We've not wrecked the place up too much in your absence.

Funny that, I remember him as Italy too. Guess he got to play it often. Always was lucky...

Boy do I remember you! ;) Haha! Welcome back! My view of the world just got a little happier.
I actually remember you in a PDL game where I was Italy and I think you were Turkey. Good times.

Thanks for the replies :) I do remember most people from this site and most games fondly. The PDL was a painful one, but I'm glad to see someone give it another go. I'll happily be a stand by for games that suffer due to quitters.

I think the key for me is one game at a time. I'm too competitive and get too worked up to play any more than that! And that's not even getting started on how much lying and deceiving people wreak havoc with my emotions!

Ah, yes, I have fond memories of our encounters. How does a game of 1900, with anonymous countries, strike you? If interested, I'd be happy to get one started.
