    So me, faux carnation, Salaman, and Fillip (I believe he said he'd be up for another game) have shown interest in game 4 so far.

    Anyone else? I don't plan on starting it straight away, just looking for numbers really...

    I know how you feel! Like I say, I can delay the start for a while if you still want to play?

    Game 3 is now finished with draw agreed by the last 4 countries.
    Final standings were:
    Turkey
    Austria
    Germany
    France
    Russia (surrendered)
    Italy (surrendered)
    England (surrendered)

    Well played all. We'd all had enough by the end.

    Weird, the game just emailed me to tell me I'm the winner!
    Anyone else get the same?

    I had enjoyed watching your game. I thought that Turkey and Austria had just nipped it that last year. The fleet that got out off the Med caused all sorts of trouble.

    I was very pleased with the mischief that fleet was causing. :)
    I reckon a couple more turns and it would have been pretty much over anyway.

    Probably, both me and Germany had missed turns and lost interest. I had just been making basic moves with little concentration or planning since my missed turn on Good Friday.
  • Deleted user 16 April 2013 22:21:21
    I had a plan to do Germany in, but after that turn where he missed his moves, it wasn't fair - compounding Tom's earlier miss, also.

    The game was fun, but really needed more backstabbing in the second half: both alliances were unwilling to make a move on their partner.

    My plan would have feinted such a thing. I wish I'd had a chance >:D

    That happened in game 1 as well, I just couldn't turn on my ally even though he would have been stuffed if me and Turkey had attacked at the same time.

    In Game 1 I knew that I had to go out on a limb and create only one front, being sandwiched (as Italy) between your France and Turkey. I just had to make attacking Turkey from the North a more attractive option. I tried to do this by relinquishing territories to you like Kiel and Sweden.

    I'd have accepted the stab if it had come. I knew that there was a risk, but being Italy, you have to accept that.

    @RedSparrows - I thought so you dirty little blighter :p

    Yeah sorry, I just ran out of steam and then had a mental weekend and just kind of lost it. I also learnt not to have too many games on the go at once. I think I OD'd a bit.

    Austria and Turkey had it really. Not sure I'm cut out for the game though as I do end up sticking with an alliance which either leaves me getting stuffed or getting stuck in a stalemate!

    I thought you probably suspected me, but I wanted to see what happened :D

    I think we had about 5 put their names down. I could get another 2 players if we want to start a new game and no-one else wants to play off here

    I'm up for a second game, especially now I have a practical understanding of the rules. I bowed out after I got eliminated from the first game, but definitely up for a second to put what I learned into practice!

    Namely, TRUST NO ONE (specifically, andytheadequate)

    I think you can trust people on diplomacy, buy only as long as they gain a benefit from your friendship. If you offer nothing in return then don't expect a strong alliance.

    Also, without my assistance in the middle game you would have been knocked out much earlier...

    I will set up another game tonight and send out invites

    I'm in. So until all the spots are taken I can't get into the game and see what nation I've been assigned I assume?

    I've set it to preference, so you can set 3 countries that you would prefer to play as. I only really did that so we didn't and up with the same countries again. I imagine it works it out once we are all in

    We currently have 3 players, although I think DM says that he will join, and I will be able to get at least 1 other player, perhaps two. Does anyone else want an invite?
