Games like vDiplomacy, but also TripleA?
I'm looking for a game that has vDiplomacy's simultaneous turns, asynchronous multiplayer, and ideally a light or in-browser UI, BUT also has a much more complex game system (not to say that Diplomacy is bad because it is simple, but rather that I'd like an alternative).

BENCHMARK GB TOURNAMENT
Hi all, I’d like to check if there's some interest for this 20-players Tournament idea.
In case we got a few people less or many people more, I could change within a few days the structure to adapt it to the new number, but the ideal number would be 20. More to follow.

The Reconquista circa 1030? A diplomacy variant

Potential Fix for Convoy Orders
Is there a way to fix convoy orders to where there is a set of blue lines leading from the convoyed armies' location, to each of the convoying fleets, to the end location, rather than a red move order directly to the destination with connecting blue lines from the fleets

Country assignment
I do not know how many of you played on the "diplomacy judges" of old...

But I was wondering if someone might be interested in introducing the semi-random country assignment that they used, and whether it's doable from the point of view of the code.

Good neighbors (neighbours) variant idea
Hi everyone

I'd like to get people's views on this suggested variant idea...
I'm seeing a game variant on a relatively large map (eg WWIV or a version of) where the only different rule is you can't go to war with a neighbour (neighbor for the Americans here.)

So once your territory physically touches who you're at war with who's far away you're both obliged to make peace.

Any merits?

Sorry, but I don't understand it...as I get it, I couldn't lead war at all, because making war needs shared borders?
Sevyas (1497 D)
15 Apr 15 UTC
So in fact you talk about a pacifist variant, right?!
The first one attacking any neighbor will have broken the rules and will be excluded of the game. The decision on who is going to win will purely depend on the results of friendly diplomatic negociations ... ... ...
Sendric (2060 D)
15 Apr 15 UTC
I think you might have to impose a limit. Something like the first nations you border you must be peaceful with. Also, will State Farm be sponsoring this?
Unmuddler (876 D)

@Sendric: I'm sorry, but State Farm? What does State Farm have to do with anything?

I mean, I do *like* my non sequiturs, but do subliminal messages actually work?

"like a good neighbor, State Farm is there"

I was thinking something more like what GOD said. Just didn't explain it as well as him.

...and the he explained in a language clear to every man and women, beast and fish, all of his creation.

No seriously Amby...how is that supposed to work? This way, nobody can possibly reach the 18 SCs?!
Hi God. I've been looking at WWIV and I'm thinking now it'd be too confusing for most players. If you're confused and I'm confused (and I came up with the idea!) how could it work effectively? Maybe we just park this unless someone can come up with a good plan.

I was just trying to make a game which caused each player to expand beyond their immediate neighbours and vice versa.

What about:

---

If you have 3 adjacent territories with any player then that player is immediately considered a neighbour and cannot be attacked.

---

Then if you wanted to you could revise that up one territory each 2 game years or something like that.

Also a question: even though you cannot attack your neighbour, will you be able to give support to a third party to attack your said neighbour?
mwangik (833 D)

What if you had a third build type like lets say a Airplane that can move up to 3 territories in one move.

That would make the game PBEM. We wouldn't be able to play it on one of the maps here unfortunately. As far as I know the code simply doesn't allow for a 3rd unit type to be included...
diatarn_iv (1661 D)
16 Apr 15 UTC
I'm not very convinced..
but perhaps you could have a mechanism in which everyone has a (regenerating??) "political" capital, and attacking someone has "political" costs (because you need to "convince" something like a Senate); if the costs are inversely proportional to the distance between the "capitals" (e.g., France attacking Germany requires much more "political" capital than France attacking Mexico), you might get something similar to Amby's proposal..
Thanks guys, but in retrospect this probably wasn't my best Dip idea. Lets forget about it, ok?

Hey, Butterhead
So Texas is seemingly looking hard only at Shaka Smart. Gregg Marshall from Wichita State is seemingly not being looked at in the same way. For all of the hoopla over the Final Four run, do you have any insight as to why Shaka Smart has never won a conference title in either the Colonial or a gutted Atlantic 10?
