So, what's happened? Well to tell the truth, not a lot - yet. I've been pretty involved in other things lately, but now I find myself with the time and inclination to really get things organised. So what is the plan you ask? When's it going to be? What is a Diplomacy Tournament all about?
|Dates:||August 22nd and 23rd.|
|Venue:||The Claddagh Bar in Newmarket (Central Auckland), a fine Irish pub with great beers and a good kitchen.|
|Format:||Three rounds over two days. Two rounds on the Saturday, and one on the Sunday. All three rounds to be counted.|
|Scoring:||Always a contentious issue this. The system used will be Detour98e, maybe with some slight modifications.|
If you are interested in playing in the tournament, helping me organise the tournament, or even just interested in Diplomacy in New Zealand, please contact me (see below). Even if you yourself are not keen on playing in a Diplomacy tournament, I may find one or two of your friends or contacts who either themselves, or someone they know, would like to come along.
I would be especially interested in hearing from people who have a group of Diplomacy playing friends, even if you don't play that regularly, wherever you are in New Zealand.
You can contact me in any of the following ways:
|Phone:||(09) 273 1027 (work) or (09) 579 2754 (home)|
|Fax:||(09) 273 1097.|
|Post:||9 Walpole Street, Ellerslie, Auckland, New Zealand|
