Help me think of a more useful Computer Science end project!
The current plan of the teacher is for 10 16 to 18-year-old students to create and program a machine with lego-stuff that effectively sorts different colours of candy. I'm really annoyed by the prospect of spending many hours on creating something utterly useless.
Better ideas? It needs broadness, with different aspects and groups working together.

Middelfart (1196 D)
25 Oct 15 UTC
Ahh, now I get it, you mean if 2 units can swap places at the same time if one is going from NC to a region and the other is going from the region to SC....
Ogion (4208 D)
25 Oct 15 UTC
Yes, and apparently it is viewed as swapping places which isn't allowed
thorfi (1023 D)
25 Oct 15 UTC
Yup, definitely not allowed. Specifically mentioned in the rulebook, all versions, if I recall correctly, even.
thorfi (1023 D)
25 Oct 15 UTC
And yes: even F Bul/sc - Con, A Con-Bul would be failed moves.

It's not in all versions of the rulebook - earlier ones didn't have this rule - but it is in most. Richard Sharp's "The Game of Diplomacy" covers this briefly:

"Another clarification provided by the new (1971) rulebook concerns units changing places. In the ordinary way, two units cannot exchange places (‘Changing the Guard’), even in cases where logically they would easily be able to do so: e.g. F(Spa)(nc) - Por, F(Por) - Spa(sc), the so-called ‘coastal crawl’, is not permitted to succeed, though in reality the fleets would not come within a hundred miles of each other. This is a rare case where the revised rulebook went against majority opinion - most GMs before 1971 allowed this move. However, if one (or both) units are convoyed, both moves succeed: A(Ank) - Con, F(BLA) C A(Con) - Ank. This latter ruling is often useful in the Denmark area (see ‘The Loop’)."

That sounds like its straight out of the Ankara Crescent rulebook. Not the original 1964 Stockholm Agreement, but from the second appendix to the 1968 Havana Corollary.

Actually, now that I think of it, that was in reference to a fleet swap in Moscow (SC), which is, of course, explicitly permitted and even encouraged in the rulebook:

"RULE 6.B.14: SWAPPING UNITS

Under ordinary circumstances, two units are not allowed to exchange places ('Changing the Guard') EXCEPT in cases where two units is merely a stop in reaching a unit exchange consisting of three or more units ESPECIALLY in cases where they would easily be able to do so. For example, Spa (SC) is hundreds of miles long in real life, and limited occupancy to a single fleet is capricious and silly. Therefore, occupying a coast with a single fleet is prohibited UNLESS said single fleet is supporting another fleet to the same province EXCEPT if said support is to, and, or of the south coast of Moscow, in which case the Caspian Sea needs to be occupied IF AND ONLY IF it is not a federally recognized bank holiday. What? I ordered a coffee an hour ago, why can't I stay in my seat? What do you mean 'wasting space'? Look, I paid two American dollars to sit in this restaurant and I'd rather not have my rights viola..well if you're doing to call the police, I'll take fifteen cents worth of coffee, thank you very much. Now, what were we talking about again? Oh yes, fleet swaps. These are totally legal."

Which Provinces Are Occupied The Least/Most?
I was thinking about this the other day. Which province, spends, on average, the highest percentage of its time being occupied by a unit. Or being empty? Empty, I think we can all agree would be North Africa (?) although I'm open to suggestion. But what about second most empty?
