Shall We Make a Wager?

Well, we're up to 11 12 players out of 14 for the Skeptiplomacy game. One thing I was thinking about to spice things up and possibly attract the last 3 2 players: A wager of some sort, where the losers (that'll be the rest of you) do something for the winner (that'll be me) at the end of the game. I was also thinking of having it at multiple levels: The people who get utterly wiped off the map are bigger losers than the people who manage to survive until the end, when I claim over half the supply centers.

Beyond something simple like everyone making a post about a topic of the winner's choosing, I don't have many ideas, so get to brainstorming.

Oh I'm in. We could do some mayor SuperBowl styled wagering for something from the region the players live in. Some food item from your area that people in other parts of the country may have no clue about.

Excellent blog, guys! Can I add you to my blogroll on another skeptical blog, Swallowing the Camel?

Sure, go right ahead. (Good choice of name, by the way.)

Care to join in the Skeptiplomacy game while you're here?

Personally, I think just "Skeplomacy" is better. It's shorter, and as the Simpson's said: "Brevity is... wit."

As for a wager, beats me.

If I had any sort of idea of what I was doing, I'd be in.

As I don't, well, *sigh*.

Yay for Dr. Hobo!

Anyway, I haven't played the game before, but I've expressed my interest in the other thread.

Quite a few of us have no experience with the game, so that's no excuse not to play.

Hell, I have no idea what I'm doing, and I suck at every strategy game ever, and I'm in. Give it a shot.

I would love to - but I'm gamed out and stretched for time, as usual. Thanks, tho! :)

I like the item from each city or region thingy.

I hate strategy games. I suck at them.

I'm camera shy. The flash always spooks me. So does the vacuum cleaner.
