    My first game seemed to do pretty well, until it died pretty abruptly. But there certainly seemed to be interest.

    So, is there interest in starting another game of diplomacy? If I get 7 interested players who are able to send orders every 48 hours, I'll start another game. If you're interested, PM me your country preferences, in order from 1-7.

    I'm also open to restarting the last game, if there's interest...


    For reference, the first thread is here.

    I would be partial to a new game because, hmm, the last game turned out kind of badly for the Archduke.

    1) didn't even post in this thread;
    2) mispelled the name of the thread in his PM; and
    3) listed the following countries:
    as his preferences, I'm not going to accept him. :p

    @Thlayli: I need more than just a first choice. Sorry.

    To answer your first question, no! Seven preferences are confusing and heathenlike...we seemed to do just fine with 1 preference in DipNES 1.
