"War on Terror" game set in 2001
I figure people may be interested in this: http://eregime.org/index.php?c=1012281

It's not Diplomacy, but you can play as a country leader, intelligence agency, international bank, terrorist group, etc. The rules are very simple.

Site mechanics question re civil disorder
See below
CNote (568 D)

If I understand correctly, when a player misses two consecutive phases, the power is put into civil disorder and can be claimed by anyone. Correct? I am not sure where I read that (and I did spend some time poking around the site help, but couldn't find it or anything about CD, I am probably just being an idiot) but I am almost 100% sure that is true.

Do I understand correctly that the player must miss two consecutive *game* phases, regardless of whether the player was actually required to submit moves for that turn? So, for example, imagine I fail to submit orders in a spring move turn, but am not dislodged anywhere. Somewhere halfway across the board someone else is dislodged, so the retreat phase goes forward. Then, come the fall move phase, I also do not submit orders. At this point, even though I haven't done anything in the game for three full phases, I have not missed two consecutive phases, because the two move phases were not consecutive (since there was a retreat phase in between them).

In theory, this could go on forever, and I could sit there not logging onto the game for weeks at a time but never getting put into CD. In practice, that's unlikely to happen, but I believe I have experienced some players hanging around for as much as two game years or so without ever submitting a single move because of this.

Anyway, I mostly just want to make sure I understand this correctly. It took me like a year of playing on this site and wondering "what the @#$%@#, this person hasn't submitted moves in like a (game) year and a half, why haven't they gone into CD yet?" before it occurred to me that the retreat/build phases were messing up the "two consecutive phases" rule - if in fact, that is the rule.

Thanks

Two consecutive phases where you were supposed to input orders, but phases that you were not required to input orders don't count for or against you. So if you miss spring orders, and miss spring retreats, CD. If you miss spring orders, don't have anything to submit in spring retreats, and then miss fall orders, CD.

Remember if you check the game at all, even if you don't enter orders, it'll reset the counter.

Interesting. Is this explained anywhere on the site in the FAQ or something? I couldn't figure it out. Obviously, I did not understand correctly what was going on. The following in particular seems sort of crazy to me:

"if you check the game at all, even if you don't enter orders, it'll reset the counter"
