02 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1901: First tip - send a message to EVERY player asking about Alliances, non-aggression pacts, etc. If you checked the You Tube videos, you already have a good idea of which countries typically ally (at least until they backstab each other).
02 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Also, as you make plans, please note that you only gain control of a new supply center if you have a unit sitting in that space at the end of the Autumn (note, we're in the Spring right now (and there is no Summer).
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: In which phase do we roll the dice and get those cards with the toy soldiers and cannons on them?
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: There is a message feature. I just found this out.
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: As units begin to move and come in contact with each other, make sure you understand how support works. Remember - you can support other players too.

If your unit is on an unclaimed SC (supply center) or if you have seized another player's SC, you will be able to build a new unit after the Fall turn and before the Spring orders are delivered. The new units must be placed on one of your three original SCs, so make sure there is room for the new units.
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: So now we just wait for Italy's retreat? If he acts before time runs out does it move on, or are we stuck here for 12 hours no matter what?
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Why can't I make a move right now? Can you only move pieces one turn in a row?
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: We're still in the "Build" phase until Germany and France decide what troops they want to build, and where. Then you'll be able to select your spring '02 move.
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Learn from my mistake. If using a convoy to move an army, be sure that you also command the fleet to convoy the unit. If you don't the army doesn't land. Both units involved in the convoy must select the convoy option. :(

04 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Wait - did you write those yourself!? :)
04 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Is anyone else getting confused about what pieces are theirs? And, did I miss a turn?
04 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: It's the one downside to this site - the pieces aren't color coordinated. What I find helpful is to check the Orders (all the way at the bottom of the page).
04 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Yes, you missed Spring of '02.
Pieces will have a colored square indicating their owner when they aren't within their own borders.
05 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oops
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Russia will be resigning their troops to non stronghold territories. No time to learn the rules or keep up with the ever changing clock. Sorry gang. We'll be checking in if moves are required of us, but have at it. May the best diplomat win!
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm sorry, Ben. I liked having you in the game!

06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: No worries. I'd like to learn and play legit at some point, but with producing/directing this show, I just can't give consistent time. Keep me in the loop!
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: No worries. I'd like to learn and play legit at some point, but with producing/directing this show, I just can't give consistent time. Keep me in the loop!

06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Why can I only give one order? Am I on the way out? I don't see that on the board.
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: You can only have as many units as Supply Centers that you hold. Since you lost Berlin and Munich, you now have three SCs, meaning you need to destroy two units of your choice.
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: To answer your second question: yes, your predicament is quite dire.
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm hoping everyone is enjoying the game and will be up for another one once this one ends. I know Will is ready to play too.
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: If anyone has the time this afternoon for a live game you should join "For Cyrus, King of Persia" five minute rounds, so it will move very quickly. It starts in about an hour and a half. Only a bet of 5. A good chance to get some quick practice in.
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Apparently this is not allowed. So don't do that. haha And hopefully I won't get banned. I'm pleading ignorance.
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm glad you're in another game though - best way to get practice. And choosing 5 credit games is the way to go: most of the really experienced players won't bother playing for such a small pot.
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm in a World Diplomacy IX game about to start. I think there are 17 players total; I expect total and utter chaos. Which reminds me - consider playing the other game variants offered here on the site. Since they are MUCH newer, strategies haven't become nearly as codified as they are for the standard Diplomacy game (the version we are playing). This means you are playing more against the players and less against existing and established game theory.
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'll be up for another game. I should be a little more adept in the next one having played a game.
06 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm glad to hear this! :)
09 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1905: I'd like to play again as well, but once I return from Spain on the 23rd. I feel like internet will be unlikely where I will be.
09 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hello All! I made moves in order to implode. You are all welcome to divide france
09 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: I will be unable to finish playing this game
09 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: That's a shame. I was looking forward to duking it out against... you know, people.
09 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'm studying abroad in spain. my replacement fell through. I wont be able to play while traveling and don't want your game to be stalled
09 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: I return on the 24th. so i can play again then
09 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Should we call a draw then since a major player is leaving? Her departure benefits me most I think due to my close proximity to so many of her SCs.
10 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hang tight, I may have a person to play for me. I'm waiting for my cousin to respond. He is a gamer of sorts. He's looking up the game to see if he can figure it out
10 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1906: I'm inclined to vote draw - what does everyone else think?
10 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1906: My cousin can do it, I don't know how well it will go. I'm really sorry. My friend was going to play, but changed his mind during the round last night. I have my computer till 4:00 today.

-Russia Happy to Somehow Still Control Finland, Armenia.Thanks Turkey for "Keeping Tea-Drinking Island-People Out of Moscow"
12 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Do you write those or does the game generate them?? :)
12 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I get them straight from the Turkish Associated Press. I really appreciated their commitment to fair and balanced coverage of the complex issues that really matter.
12 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1908: You crack me up!! :) Excellent game to all - very well played!! Looking forward to our next one.
12 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I'm still looking forward to this one. I've never seen how a diplomacy endgame plays out.
12 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I *think* I win next turn when I take Portugal since that will be 17 SCs. We all know that this game would have unfolded VERY differently if France had been able to stay.
12 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I think everyone did a pretty fantastic job for this being everyone's first game.
