Foreign Control Diplomacy
A variant that puts even more emphasis on diplomacy.
I'll explain my idea with an example inside:

you start with three units (assuming you're not Russia). You can only control 1 unit yourself. You can choose which. With the other 2 units you can either hold or give another power control. They would still be your units, but the orders are given by other powers. As long you have up to N units that are under orders (you can render a unit 'inactive' so you're not forced to let your enemies control your units. It just holds then.), with N being the amount of powers alive, every country, including yours, can only control one of your units. With N+1 active units, you can control 2 units yourself. Up to N*2, you can give other countries over up to 2 of your units as well. It goes on like that. This requires you to have good alliances, because you need allies to control your units, unless you want them inactive or rogue.
Be sure to ask any questions.

I'll give it a go, but who gets to actually move the units.

If for example Eng hands control of Lon to France and France hands control of Brest to Eng.

Eng may direct france to move Bre to EC and this may affect how Fra instructs Eng to move Lon. Only by exchanging orders for units under the control of others at the same time could this variant work, otherwise people keep changing orders up to the last second.

A gamesmaster for this game would help.
Perhaps an additional phase for selecting which units are controlled by whom must be processed before making the orders for that season?
I guess the variant can't actually be played using this site without another player who does nothing but enter the orders submitted by the other players for each country.
You could run it via some sort of private messaging to a gamemaster who simply runs the phpdip with control of all the countries locally, so nobody can update/see the orders until after a phase.
It reminds me of Payola Dip.

This seems very easy to accomplish. Each player actually in the game controls one unit and agrees to only move the other units as instructed.

The problem with your idea (abge) is that your solution would make stabs including a players own unit nearly impossible, as your (former) ally would know about the stab and change his order for your unit as well.

Would it be allowed to lie and tell one player he has control over a specific unit while in reality another player controls it?

Oh, you're right. Sorry, I misunderstood the OP.

If all orders filtered through a third party (a mod), the game could be set to pause until the phase ended. At the end of the phase but prior to being unpaused and resolved, the mod would publicly state the issued orders via global text and players would then submit the orders required and vote to unpause. After the game unpauses, the mod goes back in and sets the game to pause and begins collecting orders.

Too many topics about Mapleleaf. Let's make another one.
I muted all the threads about mapleleaf and it's like all the drama he's causing vanished. Fascinating how well that worked. (I guess I didn't mute this thread. That would be weird muting your own thread though.)

The poo maple
As I was cleaning my mapleleaf, I discovered it was covered in poo. I got it all over my shorts. When I checked if it did happen, I got it all over my hands. I've washed them 3 times and they still smell like maplepoo.

Please advise.

Maplepoo Donations
Since it is quite evident to all that Maplepoo it yet another Canadian that really wishes he weren't, and he has obvious jealousy issue with the US - his desired dwelling place, but that his criminal record (or some such thing) is preventing him from becoming a US citizen, and thus he has taken to rather amusing constant stream of America bashing to try to soothe his saddened soul....let's take up a collection and send old maplepoo the biggest US flag we can find.

I'm back.
Hey gang. Having spent the last week in hospital, I'm back. Hopefully that was the last operation I'll need. Going to need to spend the next few weeks healing, but that'll give me plenty of time to join some games. Thanks very much to abgemacht for sitting my account for the last week.

An Idea for World Games
Most of my recent games have been World, and I've found that once you get 20+ units, the list of orders can become quite unwieldy. Since you develop different "fronts" involving different sets of units, it'd be really cool to be able to arrange my own units to I could keep all of my South American guerrillas separate from my Mongolian hordes (Inner and regular). Would this be simple/worthwhile to incorporate?
