Hello!

Greeting PlayDiplomacy community! My name is Philip.

I recently got back into Diplomacy because a friend brought up playing an online game at a New Year's party. That game still has not gotten off the ground but I've joined a non-ranked game. I'm thinking of joining a mentor game as well.

As I said I am getting back into Diplomacy. I have played face to face Diplomacy and have the physical game but I've never played online.

So true!!

Welcome, Philip! I hope my first stab against you is wildly successful and that you die a painful death. In all other respects, I wish you the best. :D

Thank you. NJLonghorn I'll be sure to trust you as much as the great powers of Europe trusted each other at the turn of the 20th century. Shyvve, I like the Strangelove avatar.

welcome Philip, make sure you have your back to the wall at all times, and if you don't make sure you have a big hit target on the back, that should really help =p

Since you've already been welcomed by Shyvve I don't suppose I need to welcome you again? :lol:
