I did the whole hog diplomacy thing for several years, but its been about ten since I last gave it a go. I am toying with starting it again, but I got a lot on my plate right now. I'm putting together the pieces for a speaking career and that has to take all my free "good" time. The rest of the day I spend "in the yellow" and I do things like post on this forum and kick around BG ideas in general. In spite of all the hype, a severe brain injury can be a real hassle some times, even twenty years after.
