Anyone on this board a fan of the game Diplomacy? There's a great website that lets you play on line. I'm looking to get a new game going, and in my experience the diplomatic aspect of the game goes better if the players have some sort of common background (as opposed to complete strangers playing.)
I have turns set to a 48 hour time limit, so it's not like you have to be able to check the game all the time.
If you're interested, go make an account at www.phpdiplomacy.net
Once you've done that, you can join my game here: http://phpdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=11505&join=on&gamepass=68706737...

It's a great way to pass the time through the barren football wasteland that is called June.
