    Anyone up for a game of Diplomacy?

    We need seven people and will play on PlayDiplomacy.com. I can lead the game. We'll start once we have a committed group.

    This game will require turns be submitted every 24 hours, regardless of day, with 12 hours to submit BUILD and RETREAT orders.

    The game will be anonymized and countries will be assigned at random.

    Let me know if you are interested. I'd like to get a game going as soon as possible.

    I'm interested.

    Is this an accurate summation of how to play?

    I'm not sure I have time for a game of Diplomacy right now but it's an amazing game and I really recommend it to everyone. A game should be running at the Codex at all times!

    It could take a couple weeks, assuming people use every minute of turns. It could also be resolved in a couple days, if everyone turns in their orders quickly.

    The mechanics are easy, but the challenge is negotiation and working with
    others. That comes with experience.

    Also, grimace, is it OK to put you down as a yes? Or do you need more time to
    confirm your decision?

    This sounds like it could be fun. Timing's all wrong though, I can't commit to this over Christmas. I'd be up for it in January if you want to do it (again) then.

    The average game might last about 20 turns, but it can definitely go longer or shorter. But time depends mostly on whether people finalize their moves and end the turn early or if they prefer to let the timer run out. I'd expect a game to last about a month.

    I suggest everyone with an iron will and steel nerves to partecipate.

    I won't because I lack both and I already played in previous Codex editions, and I still suffer the consequences. Go for it though, it's """fun""".

    This game, like every Diplomacy game ever, will have butt hurt. Prepare your anus.

    I'm completely serious, Diplomacy is a fun game. But I'm also serious, I personally don't have the will to deal with he high-stakes diplomacy of Diplomacy!

    I played in the last Codex game and I was terrible, so if you want a punching bag, sure, I'll play.

    Easy to learn, hard to master.

    But, really, the mechanics aren't that hard. The video posted earlier should cover the basics. The only thing you need to consider is communication among other players. You need to make friends, while keeping your true plans secret, and avoid getting butt hurt when someone betrays you.
