ALB & GSB is only hosting this tournament and one of the aspects of it is that players are only invited to play by the organisers of the tournament.
ID is a two-player game based on Diplomacy, where each player takes one of the seven major powers of the regular game. Players earn credits according to the number of supply centres held at the end of the Autumn season. The players then use these credits to bid for control of the remaining five great powers for one game year at a time. You can express your interest by e-mailing Carl Hanich, but before you sent, note that to stop Carl getting spam e-mails, I have replaced @ with AT, which means you must do that in reverse.
ID VIII started in January 2014 and will last until roughly Xmas 2014. HC V commenced in November 2013 and should end in January 2015.
