[quote:bddddddd17]Mike This is a really good idea... do you have a 5 player variant in mind (or can you keep one)?  Because I've already invited the next highest player on the list but if they knock back the position I willhappily go with the idea of a 4 player variant rather than seek replacement players. I am home i will hear back from this person today and then get update you all asap. I am also waiting to hear back from the GM i lined up. Hopefully that will be today as well. I think this is a good idea though.  Stephen aka Deathblade_penguin www.diplomaticcorp.com

There is no point to inviting others half way thru… they would have no vested interest.  Why don’t we play it out with the remaining 4?  If 3 drop, that’s fine, they just can’t win points in round 2… but there is no mechanism in place to give replacements any hope of winning the tournament. 

South America…
Great map:  http://www.diplomaticcorp.com/images/South%20America.gif
It’s 4-player, which is exactly what we’ve got.  It has been played twice before, a 3rd game of it would be neat as it hasn’t been played since dc38. 

Ok I get to propose a map.  So I’ll propose South America, and played out by those who are still here.  Yays / Nays? 

Steve who are the remaining 4 players?  I presume Mikael, Erik, Felix, myself? 

I think those who get to propose variants are:
- Player who played Austria (Ray / not playing)
- Player first eliminated (Steve / not playing)
- Winner of last years tournament (Kevin / not playing)
- Highest score in round 1 (me) 

That leaves me. 

Ok I propose S.America.  Votes?  It has one vote, me.  I love democracy. 

Wow… since I’m the only one who gets to propose a variant!  I’ll propose.. S.American Sims Variant… I get to order 2/3 of all enemy units every turn.  :-p
Let’s see those votes now!  Mwuhahahahaha 

No really.  Plain old game of S.American gunboat.  Press allowed, but only non-negotiation press, and only one press release per country per spring or fall turn, displayed with results.  Press deemed directly negotiating or directed may be striken in parts by the GM, but not disclosed to the player until they see what parts of their press ends up posted.  Players may not ask the GM to pre-edit or proof for acceptability.  Good old regular press game.

Gentleman. I need to seek 3 replacements for the second round. I thank all the players for playing through the first game. I ask the players, from here on, not to discuss the second game (ie prefered variant/map) until we have all our 7 players signed up...... although we may have less than 4 options to choose from. I will update you as soon as i have 7 players.

The Tsar pointed at the map spread on the table before them.  "Nyet, comrades.  This cannot be!"  His finger hovered above the black dot that represented Vienna, as if somehow he could change it back from black to red. The pink-clad Austrian before him grimaced.  "Unfortunately, its true.  The attack from Tyrolia was too much for us to hold.""But can they really be at nineteen supply centers?"  The Italian questioned - his voice cracking. The Sultan smirked.  "Their gains came in the west, from France, not from our Eastern centers."  He sat in his chair quietly smoking his hookah and trying to ignore the sounds of the war above them.  "We might as well all be waving white flags." At that moment, the door opened and the French President walked in.  His wardrobe consisted of shining white garments, from his stylish coat to his burnished shoes.  A white beret topped his smiling face.  Whistling to himself, he stopped as he suddenly noticed that the other four men were glaring at him.  "What?" he asked.  "Something I said?" ------------------------------And with France, so goes the board.  Congratulations to Mike Sims for a sweeping 19 center German solo victory in DC-104.  Finessing his way back into Vienna, the German also storms into Marseilles and Spain to seal the deal.  And with that, the first round of the Invitational comes to a close. There was one retreat required from Spain, but it had only the Gulf of Lyons to go to.  But of course, that is purely window-dressing with the game resolved.  My thanks to all you players who made this game a very memorable one. EOG's are, of course, extremely welcome.  I would greatly look forward to what all of you have to say about this crazy game of ours.  It's been an honour being the GM for this - my hat is off to all of you. As always, please let me know if I've made a mistake at all in the adjudication.  For those who keep track of these things, the last few Subject Headers came from the great White Stripes album "Get Thee Behind Me Satan." Cheers!  (And congratulations once again to Mike..)Trout
