Back on PlayDip!

Postby BigBert » 06 Jul 2017, 17:40

Well, the title pretty much says it all: I'm back on PlayDip. It's been a couple years since I last played diplomacy to any serious extent. But, like any good addiction, it never really goes away completely, and when I stumbled upon my diplomacy board game in a box a while ago I couldn't resist the temptation to get playing again.

Most of you probably have no idea who I am, but those of you who do remember me: good to see you all again.

I'm now in two main-site games, but I'd also be up for a variant on the forum. Having GM'ed several games, including the 35-player World War IV back in 2011/12, I would now really love play one of those "mammoth games". i.e. big map, 10+ players, etc. Keep me posted if any of them starts any time soon!

Howdy BigBert! Seems you left the site around the time I started becoming active in the forum :)

In terms of big map games, I need to do a bit of work to it after the first run, but I'm aiming to run Modern Extended (14 players) again later this year. Probably some time after summer, but if you like bigger maps keep an eye out.

You may have wandered to the PBF section already but current games recruiting, EpicDim is currently recruiting for an 11 player Crowded Othello. Nanooktheeskimo is currently recruiting for an 8 player Sengoku and a 7 player Heptarchy.

See you around the forums!

Welcome back! Can't say I've ever played with you, but it's always nice to see someone return to their old stomping grounds!
I have special eyes.

Bigbert, it's good to see some of us old timers back in the fold. Welcome back!

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Joe, the extended modern looks really cool. Did you have a planned start date yet? The Othello also looks appealing, but both at the same time might be a bit too much...

Thanks! It won't be till after the summer. Probably around September time. I've got some tweaks to make and I'll need to reskin the entire map as well. Will take me a while as my spare time is limited.

Really looking forward to that. Missed the first one, very much hoping I can jump on the second one, cause it looks awesome :D
