    We have weekly sessions, in Civ4 Warlords, from about 6:30 to 10 pm EST, USA Friday nights. If you aren't sure you can commit now, no problem, we need subs too for this week.

    The Inca and Romans need players.

    As for what a diplogame is:

    Diplogames are champagne and opera to duel game's beer and tractor pull.

    Looking through the threads you'll find countless definitions of diplogames. In summary a diplogames comes down to this: A long term MP game with players who try to resolve problems by diplomacy. Managing your civ is not enough. You try to play a 'leader' thus roleplaying and storytelling in a diplogame is as important as gaming skills. An eloquent speaker who uses tact can get the same work done as the no.1 in the game, if he speaks up.

    The Diplomacy takes place in the form of negotiations, treaties, special alliances, pacts and in the end...WAR. To keep track of historic events players will be required to post their view on events on a public forum. Everyone is free how to write his own posts it can be funny, formal, boring...anything is allowed as long as your message gets through. Just read through the diplogame threads located at the end of this FAQ for examples.

    Diplogames should center around Politics. While most games turn into lessons in game mechanics, with super growth strategy formulas, and trade bug manipulation equations, the Diplogame relies on human interaction, through diplomacy, politics, even out and out propaganda.
