Hi,

Let us say that I am playing in a face to face game at a tournament
such as DixieCon or the Massacre. If there are females playing in my
game and one of them hits on me, am I allowed to ask her out during
the game. Or do I need to wait until after the game is over?

The reason I ask is that there are no rules stated anywhere about
this.

Thanks a lot,

(also the same question regarding judge games too)

Why should it be restricted? Yuo can meet players at the table that
may become good friends, why not this.

Don't forget, it doesn't have to be with females only, could be males
too if that's your preference! ;)

Then it's alright, I guess.

If you use the EP house rules, you'd have to make sure that all your
communication take place via judge press.

I think the best advice is "Always use ALL your negotiating
resources."

Do you honestly think that she's *really* hitting on you? I wouldn't
believe that for a second. If she hits on me after the game, that's
a different story -- but during the game, I'm going to assume she
just wants me to let her into Tyrolia.

My advice: stab her immediately and take her out of the game. If
she's still interested in you -- *that's* a keeper! :-)

I think I'm beginning to get the glimmers of a great Diplomacy novel.
Call it something like "Decent proposal". The core of the plot will
centre on the exact price for Munich. One can imagine ads in the zines
"MMF and dog for Tun and ION" etc.

Girls Dipping? It's probably Jim-Bob Burgess and Doug Massey in drag. And
they are just doing it to set you up for a stab.

Regarding judge games, yes, you can ask her out, but only if you do it
proper format.

A keeper indeed. A good initial sign might be if she ordered Army Galicia
to Barents Sea.

The day must surely come when such an oeuvre is produced! I'd like to see a
Diplomacy version of Nick Hornby's "Fever Pitch". I might even try a stab at
it myself :-)

I'd like to commend you for *not* referring to the supply center Brest,
which is the easy way out when striving for humor in this area.
Personally, I've reached the point where I won't acknowledge any
gender-based jokes involving any French province, just to be on the
safe side.
