Question about dislodgement and support
Hi guys!

I've been playing Diplomacy for one year but now I'm re-reading the rulebook and I've bumped into one question.

Magic Money Trees
The UK's totally bankrupt Prime Minister, Theresa May, told nurses they couldn't have a pay rise because "there isn't a magic money tree".

But this week there was £1.5 billion of magic money to give to some extreme-right Northern Irish homophobes with strong connections to terrorism.

Unhelpful Allies
Quick question, does anyone get annoyed by allies who send you messages saying really obvious things about what other countries did last turn or where you could easily get a SC. Basically all the information that is super clear that everyone could figure out but they decide to tell you anyways. Am I the only one who feels this way?

Home Game
Is there a way to run a game from one computer? In a face to face game, players would submit their orders to the moderator who logs them into the program for resolution, afterwards updating the public board. Does anyone know how to make this work?

Convoy question
If an army is being convoyed into territory A by a fleet in sea B and is supported into A by another unit, what happens if a fleet in Territory A is supported into Sea B?

Do they bounce because of equal force, or does the fleet from A dislodge the fleet in B before the convoy is successful?

Jam then cream. I have had this discussion with my friends before, and I still don't see how cream then jam could make any sense. You can't spread the jam if it's on cream!

I agree, though I've heard if the cream is double clotted (as it should be) cream then jam can work.
captainmeme (1589 D Mod)
21 Jun 17 UTC
That's just making the job harder, though. Cream doesn't need to be spread, so putting it on top of jam is fine and easy. Even if you are able to spread jam on cream, it's certainly easier to spread it on the scone, and why make more work for yourself?

It also looks nicer with the cream on top, although obviously that's a more personal judgement.

Leon is right about that clotted cream can be used as foundation for the jam, but personally I put butter first, then jam, and (clotted) cream.

Yesterday I treated myself and watched a DVD of "The importance of being Earnest", with Colin Fifth, Rupert Everett & Dame Judi Dench as Lady Bracknell. Classic Oscar Wilde & wonderfully British.. Yes Oscar Wilde was Irish which partly explains his ability to observe & satarise the British so cleverly.

Ohhh cool so this is a pommy bashing thread. Things like " it's just not cricket chaps " ( it is but we Aussie convicts keep kicking your buttocks).

Inventing Rugby so the kiwis can beat everyone.

Inventing Soccer changing it's name to football and still not winning,

But I must admit to show my true colours ( note correct spelling) that the english did invent Chips ( not fries) real chips...and of course due to there long history of inventing sports they can't play .. Whinging....

They may have invented rain too or is that the scots ??

Cut the scone in half. Spread jam onto one half. Put cream on the other half. Return the halves together. Simple.

Brad, the British would actually be a small providence of Nazi Germany, considering the Russians were knee deep in a bloodbath with the Germans.
Even then all the US did was send over supplies, so if we never rebelled the British would've been a little stronger to take on the Germans. Heck, "America" may have been dragged into the war earlier because the mother country was being attacked.
