Gaire Diplomacy PBEM
 
# 1 : Sunday 2-10-2005 @ 19:47
 
 

So i've been batting the idea about in my mind and finally decided to post and see if anyone would be interested in a Gaire Diplomacy PBEM game? The game would take part off the boards via email, but regular updates would be posted on the boards. I would take the role of the judge, and would require 7 players to take the role of the different countries in the game (Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Russia and Turkey).


More information can be found here:

Rules can be found here:

any takers?

It's interesting enough, rules arent too complicated and the majority of the game is won or lost at the negotiation table and in shady back room deals with the other players... so it pays for the players to keep in contact with each other.

Aside from that, there is no element of chance. plays much like a 7 player version of chess...

I haven't a hope Fetch. Wikipedia says: " Each player's social and interpersonal skills are at least as important to the game as the player's strategic abilities. "

Players should pick in order of their first preferences:

For example: FEARTGI would be in order of France (first preference) to Italy (last preference).

Players would then be assigned their countries using a random number generator- highest scoring player getting their first preference, with successive players getting their highest availible preference.
