17 Sep 17 UTC good game Russia, I cannot even imagine how to describe my disbelief that with a Russian fleet in SPAIN in 1906, and absolutely no one, except me, seems to care about what has been a impending Russian solo for years and years and years...

France content to ignore Russia and attack Germany. Italy poaches SC off of France, on and on.. unbelievable.
17 Sep 17 UTC thanks Turkman. I couldn't believe my 'luck' either.
G-man, sorry about the fake out early on, it let France get a foothold. Way to survive.
17 Sep 17 UTC it wasn't luck, it was good play by you and bad play by everyone else, including the one incredibly stupid play I made very early to let you into Black Sea, never again..
17 Sep 17 UTC but at least I know that I fought you the entire game and never helped you, like EVERYONE else did.
17 Sep 17 UTC Congrats Russia...after France's excellent support against my self standoff I was pretty much done.
17 Sep 17 UTC Nicely done czechveck!
17 Sep 17 UTC Congrats Russia. I wished to solve German problem faster than you but failed. I had nomore power against Russia because of the earlier attack by other coutries. If Germany didnot let Russia into Sweden, most Germany may get better and Russia may in a difficult place. In my coutry, most Germany make bounce in Sweden but in web I discover most Germany let Russia get Sweden. I don't know is it a better choice?
17 Sep 17 UTC always bounce Russia in Sweden, especially in gunboat, always.
17 Sep 17 UTC supporting Russia into Sweden is incredibly stupid.
17 Sep 17 UTC gunboat as Germany.

1) open north
2) bounce Sweden
3) try to take over Scan, gain naval dominance north FIRST
17 Sep 17 UTC I would disagree about the above as an absolute. Sometimes you want a stronger Russia (Germany) because England and France team up on Germany. Not the case here.
17 Sep 17 UTC Hmmm, bouncing in Sweden risks having all three coming at you at once I think. Germany needs England and Russia in conflict at the start. But, I see what good the bounce can be. - like the Black Sea

Shengba, where are you from? I am interested to know of other countries that have good Diplomacy communities.
17 Sep 17 UTC Of course when EF are too strong, Russia could get Sweden. But in most game, there is no need just like this game. And cut north sea may be too unfriend ly to England.
17 Sep 17 UTC All right. I am from CHINA, itis a very large coutry. We get a series of ruglar gun boat games jusy like 715
18 Sep 17 UTC In our games, most Germany bounce so they become no. 1most and Russia lose game also most. We all know make conflict is a good way while there is a risk to make Russia stronger. Making Russia strong is easy but defending Russia is hard.
18 Sep 17 UTC Do you see the Germans invade Russia, into Warsaw/Moscow often? Or mainly Sweden and North?
18 Sep 17 UTC En, If Germany do well, may invade Russia of course inculding warsaw but not often .north is easier and let Russia get Moscow to defend Turkey
18 Oct 17 UTC guys, we need five more people for this huge EPIC game of OPEN PRESS World Dip, will be hilarious fun!
