Ok bear with me for a minute here, I understand what I'm about to suggest sounds incredibly nerdy I just ask that you let me finish.

If you've never heard of th game Diplomacy it's some what risk esque except there's very little luck involved. Attacked are resolved through a heirachy of rules, the fun of the game is the tactics involed in moving your pieces but also how you interact through other people playing the game (imagine a 7 person FFA)

I first heard about Diplomacy in a PC Gamer magazine when a computer version was released (which was by all accounts terrible) and had to be almost 14 years ago and I have always always wanted to play so much so that I went purchased the board game when I saw it in a store.

The Problem is that it's impossible to find 6 other people who have even a fraction of the requisite patience to play this game in real time. This game was built for long form internet formats

I think it's actually pretty simple to figure out, although extremely frustrating because some amount of cooperation is required for anyone to actually win. If we can find a good map to represent stuff on (the wiki page sample map is kind of an eyesore), I'd be down to play.

warning: this game ruins friendships.

I have a friend who plays it at work. They resolve their moves once a day and all throughout the day they are forming alliances and making strategies for their next move.

basically i don't know how any work gets done there.

it's basically "be a dick and win", the board game. Even more so than Monopoly, the game designed to teach you how fucked up capitalism is.

I love playing risk but I hate playing free for all games of risk with my friends. Like Nick said, alliances and secret alliances and accusations of secret alliances and it's ugly.

Well Technically Nick and Dimi never agreed to it, but I had planned to gang press Nick, Dimi and Shady in to labor anyway. So we really we just need Ztolk or TPC to wander into this thread by accident.

Good, now all I need is a popular way to decide who gets to be what country, and a way for everybody to contact to each other

e-mail, hangouts whatsapp?

first person who posts a suggestion gets to have that suggestion implemented, unless it's fucking stupid.
