Jack (and others),

Don't read more into my comments than is there. I am not accusing
anyone other than Mike of wrongdoing; I just think it might have been
settled more quickly and peacefully than it was, but I also understand
that Mike's accusations caused heated emotions, and I don't blame you
for this. And I agree with all your comments about the game and how and
why we play it. All I wanted to make clear in my EOG was that the huge
argument turned me off from the game a bit and for some reason I could
not fully bring my heart back into it after that, and I think this
somewhat contributed to the ease with which Chris played me.

I thought Mike was completely out of line with his temper tantrum and
resignation, nothing short of cheating justifies that and he that's
not why he resigned...

I have to say in my 25 years of pbm, pbem and ftf play, I've been in a
lot of games where players did what I thought were moves that were not
in their best interest or even in the interest of stopping someone
from winning and I have NEVER resigned due to other people refusing to
do what I wanted or not pitching to help stop the leader...

That's part of the game--its DIPLOMACY, e.g. you suppose to convince
people to do what you want, to leave because people won't do what you
want is contrary to the spirit of the game...and I don't want to play
with anyone who is going to resign because people won't do what they
want...

and sorry, I think having my integrity question is a BIG thing and is
worth arguing about...he basically accused me of throwing the game to
France because I wouldn't help him...which was not true and when i
denied he basically called me a liar...which i am in the game but not
outside of the game...

i also agree i would play the game differently but then that's true of
almost any variant I play for the first time (in fact often true of
variants i've played several times, that's the mark of a good variant
in my opinion...)

Hey guys,

First off, congrats to Chris; at least with respect to me he
played the perfect balance of helping me and then turning on me
right before I would have been ready to fend him off. As for the
rest of this game, I must admit that this was one of the most
annoying games of which I have been a part. The initial Germany's
tantrum was obviously a big part of this, but I also thought that
other people didn't help the situation by blowing the situation up
into a huge argument. And, looking back at the game as a whole,
even though I don't approve of Mike's actions I actually agree
with some of the things he was saying strategically, and I would
play this variant very very differently were I to play it again.

Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
