Board game player, new to online!

Postby SmackieT » 05 Oct 2022, 06:21

Hi all,

I just joined. I have played the board game a few times, though the last time I played was over a decade ago. I just joined playdiplomacy, so I'll give online a go!

Welcome to the madness. It’s good online but “different” because the pace of decision making is so much slower. I know this is heresy but I’ve come to prefer it. They sometimes run “mentor” games here, which are good for learning the online interface. If you’ve already grasped how to input orders etc then pile in. The “ranked” games generate a player rating for comparative purposes, while the rest don’t. Hope you enjoy your Diplomacy.

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.
