Why is this variant in the variants list if it is not an option when creating a game. It should either be removed from the variants list or be added as an option when creating a game.

For those who didn't see the initial thread, this is a variant of the public press only game, except that here the press is done in this thread so players have no way of knowing whether players claiming to be a power actually are that play or whether a player is even in the game

Please ONLY post about this game!

(Although I have started the game I will most likely leave the game once other have joined)

I didn't fully understand what I was getting myself into but this seems neat. I'll be direct and see how that goes - I am France - I would like to DMZ the channel and bounce in Burgundy.

ENG if you move the channel, I'll throw my units your way (and hopefully GER will help). GER, I am moving to But - its up to you if you want to bounce me there.
ghug (5046 D (B))
27 Aug 17 UTC
Tom, that's not acceptable. A bounce in Burgundy heavily favors France, as the army stuck in Munich can't go anywhere, whereas the army in Marseilles can take Spain.

I'll agree to it if you'll move Par-Bur instead of Mar-Bur, but then we'd be giving England Belgium unopposed. Otherwise, I'm only comfortable with a DMZ. Your call.

England, I know our French friend has been overtly friendly to you over me with these suggested moves, but please see it merely as putting you in the stronger negotiating position rather than as an opportunity to ally with the Frenchman. He has nothing but builds on the mind right now, and that means there's no guarantee he'll be your friend for long. I won't ask you to move to the channel, though if you feel it prudent, I'm certainly not opposed.

Russia, I'm generally in favor of letting you into Sweden. An exceptional showing in the south or a need to secure an English ally could force my hand however, so I won't make a promise I'm not sure I can keep yet, even if it is likely. In either case, I have no intentions of meddling with you in the East, and I hope you feel the same about me in the West.

I'm looking forward to this. Should be an interesting twist on public press.

ubercacher16 (301 D)
27 Aug 17 UTC
Also I have a question about this: Are PM between players allowed? Or is that against the spirt of this particular game? Just wondering and thought it would be interesting if it was acceptable.
ghug (5046 D (B))
27 Aug 17 UTC
My understanding was that it was public press.

I haven't entered orders yet, as negotiations with France over Burgundy are incomplete.
ubercacher16 (301 D)
27 Aug 17 UTC
That was my understanding too. Just wondering.

Makes sense.
Ogion (4059 D)
27 Aug 17 UTC
That's a good question. After all, the person you're sending PMs to may or may not be the person you think you're messaging.

What do you all think? I think keeping it public press is good.

For example, as Germany, I'd prefer a Burgundy DMZ, since it is too easy to take Burgundy with support and leave me stuck in Munich. Alternatively, I could perhaps be talked into supporting you into Belgium from Ruhr in exchange for help against England.

That said, Turkey, I'd like a bounce in Black Sea, since if Italy comes our way, picking a fight with me usually leads to roast Turkey and shortly there after my lovely purple often gets turned into Borscht.

Unless Austria has a good counter offer for me?

Or I might not be in the game at all!
ubercacher16 (301 D)
27 Aug 17 UTC
I love this! I except your idea for a bounce.

I am Austria and would love to cooperate! lets killem!

Ogion (4059 D)
27 Aug 17 UTC
Ok, fair enough Ghug. I'm just playing around. After all, if I have this right, I have to negotiate with you over Sweden. Yes, letting me into Sweden and letting me keep it in 1902 is a good way to have me be loyal in the north. I'm the weakling p there and stick with whoever power pats my head


Austria, bounce in Galicia?
ubercacher16 (301 D)
27 Aug 17 UTC
ghug, I too was joking, I am in fact England.
Tom Bombadil (4028 D (G))
27 Aug 17 UTC
ghug. I hope you aren't actually Germany. You've gotten the best of me in our previous encounters. But if so, this time let's be pals.

However, I will not be DMZing Bur. It's a huge problem to have Ger in Bur and I've seen it happen often in gunboat and public press.

I will however bounce with Paris per your request. Is that agreeable?

Italy, I hope that this does not cause you to be cute and go to Pie.
ghug (5046 D (B))
27 Aug 17 UTC
Tom, I'm not going to unilaterally sneak into Burgundy when I haven't even heard anything from England or Italy. Establishing myself as a liar without any confirmed support would be suicide in a game like this. I'll bounce if you insist, but I think it's a mistake.
ghug (5046 D (B))
27 Aug 17 UTC
Ogion, as I said, it's my inclination to let you into Sweden, but I'm not making any promises until I see the state of the board in the fall.
ubercacher16 (301 D)
27 Aug 17 UTC
You haven't heard anything from England? I am England. And I think that the Anglo Saxon (E/G) is the best idea for me.
ghug (5046 D (B))
27 Aug 17 UTC
You said you were Austria a minute ago too. If you're committing to being England (hah) though, I'm glad to hear that, and I look forward to seeing it borne out in the moves.
ghug (5046 D (B))
27 Aug 17 UTC
Oh, I missed the bit where you said you were joking.
TrPrado (461 D Mod)

Ogion: as Turkey, I think that sounds best.

Italy: Would you be down to invade Trieste this phase?

Austria: Do you have anything to offer?

Rival/hatred game variant
I'd like to play a game mode where each player is secretly given a unique rival (so no two players share a rival), and the only players counted at the end of the draw are those who have both survived and eliminated their rival. A solo doesn't need to eliminate their rival and rivals aren't necessarily symmetrical.

Unknown Player in Anonymous Private Game
I'm completely new to Diplomacy and this website. I made a private game and explained to my friends how to join my private match. Though only 2 people say they've joined, I have 3 anonymous players other than myself registered. Is it possible one of them joined twice? I know by the time stamps that it was one of the first two players who joined the game, the times are only a minute apart, and I am wondering if the small time frame is just a player joining twice.

vDiplomacy has a way to set up "alternate winning conditions", e.g. to customize how many turns are played and/or how many SCs need to be conquered before a winner is declared. For example, we can have a game of Classic running for 14 turns (Fall 1907).

FFS WHY?
Why does online Diplomacy give me Germany to start with in every single game I sign up for?
Seriously, does it use region-based IP-checking? Because I'd really like to try out different countries and strategies.
And no, taking over Leavers doesn't count because you always get a losing position way past the point of getting a proper strategy rolled out (that's why the original player threw the game)
