This is the official call for players.  I will be the host while JDIP will adjudicate and give me the updated maps to post.

The concept is to have all moves in to me by Wednesday of each week.  If everyone sends in FINAL moves early, we can proceed faster.

Now, we need 7 players.  Uncle Kersus Wants You!

It's a long fall from the hundreds managed at the ICQ Diplomacy Guild, lol.

Hiya ken-do-kim!  Welcome to the boards, I'm really glad you stopped in!

Could you PM me your email?  It may be awhile before this starts I guess, but I'm pretty sure if we can get to 5 or 6, I can nab a final player or two....

Up to 2 players....  Next!

Mr.Noodles said he wanted to be a player in another thread, so that gives us 3 players and a GM so far.

Or we could all four play together on an automated adjudicator?

An automated system that adjudicates moves, so there isn't a need for a human adjudicator.

We could also all go to a game site together and allow 3 others we don't know to join the game.....

We can setup games where turns can be forced after 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hour, 4 hour, 6 hour, 12 hour, 1 day, 2 day, 7 day, 30 day, 90 day, Never.  These wouldn't require a GM.

OR

We can run a PbP as originally envisioned with a GM - but that means 8 people total and we're having trouble finding 7.

PRIZE INCENTIVE!

I'd be willing to offer the winner of the game a 3-month subscription to ItsYourTurn.

Idealy I'd like to have 3 things on the go.  

A quick style game like 2 day turn intervals and a long style game of 7 day intervals.

On top of those two, the occasional - or even regular real-time game.

That's my thought anyway - certainly subject to suggestions.

That's six, if everyone who's signed up still wants to play.  We need at least one more.

As well, we need to decide on the length of time before turns can be forced.  This means that if someone doesn't put in their orders by the deadline - any player may choose to force the current orders through to keep the pace up.  Since we're able to chat here as well - we can always talk about it before it occurs - as we may not want to be too forceful at the start.

That's seven!  Me, ginatf, Mr.Noodles, ken-do-nim, J Elric Smith, redpriest, parmstrong.

I'm thinking that a good host for the game with a automated judge is GamesByEmail.

I am open to suggestions.

Now, we need to decide if we want random countries, or to pick our own (first come first serve).  As well, we need to decide on the time between turns.  

My thoughts are random, and either 2 day or 7 day.  We could also start up two games.  One 2 Day and one 7 day.  I'm also up for doing a Gunboat style 5 minute turns someday everyone is free.

Everyone who's IN, please PM me with your email address (as it requires this for me to send the invite.  Also note what name you want to use.  We could all use our usernames here - or go for more creative names depending on our nation - and post who's who here.

This is a commitment to complete the game.

Yeah!!!
I don't care which country I am.
Until after Labor Day, I would likely prefer 7 day as I am going to go on a short holiday before my kids go back to school.

We could start a 7-day one now, and then after Labour Day start a 2 day one.  

I've tried the 1-day ones, and they're okay, but you really can't negotiate.  You can basically tell someone something and then the moves have been made before you see their reply.

I wonder if there's a day of the week, or a day coming up, people would be free to play a real-time game?

Once started, we'll put a spectator URL here, and we could start some informal rankings unless someone was against the idea.

PM sent.

My choices would be:

1st England
2nd Turkey

After that, it doesn't much matter.  Heck, it's been so long since I've played Diplomacy, I'd even be happy to get It-lee.  

For even half-way decent negotiations, I'd think 3-day turn arounds would be minimum.

ETA:  GamesByEmail.com looks fine by me.
