NOTE: After having a few troubles getting this game started, please be sure to keep up to date with the event! We will be setting up a game once we have a full group, and if everyone doesn't join we can't start the game!
We are looking to start an online game of diplomacy! This will be a game that takes a while to play, and will be looking to play it over the course of many weeks. If you are not familiar with diplomacy, it is a military style game set in World War I. A short summary of the gameplay is as follows: Each player starts as a major world power with troops, as well as a facility to manufacture more troops. All turns are simultaneous! Everyone will submit their troop movements, and they will all be carried out at once. Before you commit your troop movements every turn, there is a diplomacy phase between other players, where you make secret deals and pacts. This last part is the most essential, and heart of the gameplay. It is also the part that slows the game down, as people want to try and negotiate deals between multiple players.
There is a website to play for free online, webdiplomacy.net , which can be used for the map and communication between players as well. We are looking at having to submit orders every 2 days, so you will have some time to negotiate with other players.
