Advertise your NON-live games here!
In an effort to compromise the pro-ads versus anti-ads for games: Post here for your non-live games to cut down on the number of ads but still advertise games. Post game link, WTA or PPSC, and the bet. Note: this doesn't count for special rules games.

Keep recording in the pub! Amby's crazy enough sober, but when you guys are both hammered, it's bloody fantastic!

Yes, I vote for the pub as well. I actually enjoy what the background noise adds -- though I know that different speakers/systems might be reproducing harsher levels for other people. Have only listened to the first 25 mins or so, but my son absolutely loved hearing you mention him and the story I posted on the previous page. He thinks he's famous now, having been mentioned on a "global radio show." Hilarious.

Thanks Ruff, glad I'm bad when I'm sober and even worse drunk. Kaner last episode with his 7.7% beers was plainly making the whole comprehension of Dissolution's rules that little harder :-D

Doc - equally pleased your son has made it global. If you're still at the 25 min mark, spoiler warning we go onto discuss next episode will be recorded in a speak-easy next to a strip joint (then apologise to you for your son hearing that), and then I go onto discuss getting butt-fucked by someone stabbing , and quickly apologising again. We never said this was PG rated, but maybe you need to pre-listen before your teenage son tunes in!

And if any of you are curious about the Dissolution playtest (discussed at length in the podcast), here's the subforum at PlayDip where it's being hosted:

http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=804

And here are the rules:

http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=253&t=54793#p892791

Suffice it to say that this variant is a tad bit more complicated than an automated interface will allow, but you all might find it interesting nonetheless.

I loved Kaner's rant about KW901 #3. Although he makes himself out to be a martyr, he presents a pretty good recollection of the events throughout the game. He completely ignores the part about how opportunistic and down right malicious his original stab at Ifriqiya was. No one was 'sending me any love' in that one until the very end when Utom refrained from punking me for a dot. That was why I left him alone once Wagadu was destroyed, and didn't explore my own solo chances. In the end I was happy to see Spain draw in this one, but this being a gunboat game I needed a way to convey my limited contempt for the Spanish theft of Ifriqiya. Kaner did pull off a magnificent bluff by threatening to dump his entire position to Russia. I wasn't seeking that much revenge though, and began to consider that Russia was either Eki or Bozo. I knew that Russia wouldn't solo, but wasn't wanting to risk the sum of squares scoring boost that it would give them. Overall, it was a hilarious and entertaining way to discuss an EOG.

I just spent 2.5 hours of my life I'll never get back listening to two Australians drinking and talking about conquering Europe or the World with tiny plastic armies and gunboats. And it was from last September.....

Wouldn't trade it for anything, and I HIGHLY recommend you give them a listen.

Nice job Amby and Kaner

You just need a great white shark to grab him in the last few seconds ;-)
LO!. But I don't think a great white could get that far in to shore. At least not an adult one. Too shallow of water. A tiger shark, however, is quite feasible in 2 foot of water. :-)

Bull sharks too. They're everywhere where Kaner and I live.

And that's not even bringing up the snakes or spiders... or the crocs about 500 kms north of us.

Then there's the bloody sting rays that hit Steve Irwin. Crickey!

Use sunscreen. It stops harmful rays.
I caught a skate (a type of stingray) once when fishing out in the Atlantic just outside of the Chesapeake Bay. That sucker was the toughest thing to bring in. Those fins/bodies of theirs act like suction cups in the sandy bottom of the ocean floor.

WWII conference room decoration suggestions
I am going to decorate my conference room with a WWII theme. I have a couple of recruiting/propaganda posters and am thinking of putting a big map of the war or a number of individual maps of various theaters basically in their respective areas on a wall. Any suggestions or recommendations on what to buy and where to buy it?

1900 for vDip: Progress Report (ongoing)
As mentioned in another thread, I've been working on the code and assets necessary to port Baron M. Powell's variant 1900 to vDip and/or webDip.

In order to keep myself accountable in some fashion to actually complete this task, and not just talk about it, I've created a small project plan where I can mark my progress.

New Thread Idea
Does anyone know Polish History? Did The Deluge cause such material damage that it doomed Poland to economic and political death spiral, did it devastate the proto-bourgeois, densely populated Northwest at a key moment within a republic when it was fighting with the rural, agrarian South and East thus stunting an incipient movement towards urbanization and development or did it not really have any long term effect?
