Anon full press game. I think I know who another player is. Is it cheating to attack a third player with the trust I have in this person based on their moves in the current game and past reputation?

Existential question from GOD?...
So as a bit of joke, GOD asked in an unrelated thread "What is love?" It was meant to illicit a response allusive of a music lyric. I throw out the actual question with my added subtext of how do we label our personal experiences with collective titles. Am I the only person who questions whether the "emotions" or "feelings" I attaches basic collectively defined nouns to even resemble what the words "mean" to the collective humanity? So "What is love?" but also "What is human?"

This thread is for people to confess sins safely and anonymously.

My confession is that I usually pee in the pool. Saves time, and who wants to get out to pee? The pool deck is cold.

Classic Chaos?
I'm trying to start a game of Classic Chaos and have posted already on a new games thread, but I felt that to ever hope of reaching enough players, it needs more publicity. I had some people sign up but they've now left so if there aren't any takers this time, I'll take the hint and give up but please if anyone's interested, I really love to give this variant a try, it looks like such fun.

Marlen (1056 D)

I am just saying although it seems unlikely now, we can move towards an empire of our own. There was a book written a long time ago that promised that the world will be ours. I just think this is an effective strategy to move from here to there. Might not work, but does anyone else have any suggestions on what would work?
I take you are Israeli? Even Israel knows they will never rule the earth and if you talk to a rabbi of any reputation, they will tell you that being God's chosen does not mean you get extra stuff. In fact, it means you have more rules than the Gentiles to follow to get to heaven. But it doesn't mean you will have dominion over all.

Well at least in my Talmud I deserve my 2,800 Gentile slaves (Shabbath folio 32b). Not to mention the Gentiles will be required to obey Noahide laws or die (Sanhedrin 57a-60b)... how will we enforce this if we do not have dominion over man?

Sidenote: why does nobody ever discuss the original Holocost, where the Romans rolled 64 million jewish children into their scrolls and burned them (Gittin folio 58a) and killed 4 BILLION jews? (Gittin 57b)
Marlen (1056 D)
24 May 15 UTC
OK wait the Romans may have only killed 40 million at Bethar... still deserves some documentaries made about it. That is still like 7 holocausts.

Emperor Hadrian . . . killed in Alexandria of Egypt sixty myriads on sixty myriads [1.2 millions, since one myriad is 10,000], twice as many as went forth from Egypt. . . . Emperor Vespasian . . . killed in the city of Bethar four hundred thousand myriads [4 billion], or as some say, four thousand myriads [40 million]. ‘The hands are the hands of Esau:’ this is the Government of Rome which has destroyed our House and burnt our Temple and driven us out of our land.

I am not going to admit anything either way, but it is funny how that website bans players based on views they express in the forum.

I guess to know who rules over you just look to who you are not allowed to criticize. Wikipedia says that quote is not really from Voltaire, but it it is true whoever said it. Those bans just show that there was some truth there.
Marlen (1056 D)

Although I would not be surprised if the people behind this site are the same people behind the other one. But not banned yet. Maybe they just want more content to build the website without the number of people actually seeing it.

Games like vDiplomacy, but also TripleA?
I'm looking for a game that has vDiplomacy's simultaneous turns, asynchronous multiplayer, and ideally a light or in-browser UI, BUT also has a much more complex game system (not to say that Diplomacy is bad because it is simple, but rather that I'd like an alternative).

BENCHMARK GB TOURNAMENT
Hi all, I’d like to check if there's some interest for this 20-players Tournament idea.
In case we got a few people less or many people more, I could change within a few days the structure to adapt it to the new number, but the ideal number would be 20. More to follow.

Potential Fix for Convoy Orders

Country assignment
I do not know how many of you played on the "diplomacy judges" of old...

But I was wondering if someone might be interested in introducing the semi-random country assignment that they used, and whether it's doable from the point of view of the code.
