I'm a teacher and as the summer approaches I always look for new ways to fill my time. I've never tried Diplomacy and I would like to try a play-by-email/post game online. I have never played Diplomacy and I don't own a copy of the game. I have played one play-by-email game of Battle Plan (http://www.flyingbuffalo.com/battplan.htm).

I am looking for the best site to get started. I need a site that is free, friendly to newbies, and that will be easy to use. What is the best place to start? Thanx.

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with

much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

I am willing to GM a game for 7 new players on dipbounced.com.

If you're interested, reply to this thread and subscribe so you know when we have found 7 and are ready to begin.

Alright, I probably need some time to digest the rules. How often are turns processed on bounce? Daily, weekly?

We can configure the game however we want.

I usually recommend 48 hours between turns, with no deadlines falling on the weekends.

But, if people would prefer longer or shorter turns, that is fine too.
