Using webDiplomacy.net as our platform and armed with laptops, tablets and cell phones, seven of us gathered at Ali Adib’s tastefully decorated apartment in Avondale today for his third boardless game experiment. Despite making the effort to play an online game in the same room, Game No. 371 was a quiet affair as we spent much of our negotiating time staring at our screens.
Paradoxically, the high-tech game was something of a throwback. It ended during the Spring 1907 turn in an old-school four-way draw. The final center counts were:
Austria (Chris Kelly): 0; 0.000 points.
England (Jake Trotta): 0; 0.000 points.
France (Jim O’Kelley): 8; 22.069 points.
Germany (Matt Sundstrom): 9; 27.931 points.
Italy (Ali Adib): 8; 22.069 points.
Russia (Ravi Betzig): 9; 27.931 points.
Turkey (Bryan Pravel): 0; 0.000 points.
The supply center chart is here. Of course, why settle for the chart when you can check out the game history on webDip. Just keep in mind that we had to quick-play 1902 to resolve a couple of unfortunate NMRs.

Players, how about some endgame statements. This was a fun, tight game, so hopefully it will generate some chatter.
