I've played tripleA with friends, is there a site to get pick-up games?
When you first start Triplea one of the options you have is "Find Games on the Lobby Server". The Lobby Server functions much like a dedicated IRC for those looking to play on the spot. That's the best way to find a pick-up game.
Although I know many peeps on this site have been using and clinging to that older version of Triplea which was patched to use the A&A.org dice server. Offhand I don't know what version of Triplea it was, but suffice to say it's basically outmoded. Here's why that makes a difference in finding a pick-up game in the Lobby.
To insure game play compatibility the Lobby Server is basically linked to (and gets updated with) each of the Triplea stable releases. Simply put, if you run an old version of the game you're also connecting to an older Lobby Server. You only see people in the Lobby who are running the same release as you are.
Typically the older the release is the tougher it is to find a game in the Lobby. Just don't want anyone trying out their ages old Triplea download then sit around an empty Lobby going "what the hell?"
The best bet in finding a pick-up game in the Lobby Server is to be running the latest Triplea stable release.
The latest stable release 188.8.131.52 is here:https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=44492&package_id=37009&release_id=610183
