When Diplomacy first came out, was the classic board exactly as it is now (pretty much perfect) or did it evolve to where it is today?

"Papers,Please" variant idea
I just thought,wouldnt the papers,please variant be a nice addition to vdip?The map should be something like this- http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=190964694&insideModal=1
Every country borders at least two others,but there are no neutrals.The SC names are already in(tho nirsk should just be a province).I have no idea how to program or balance stuff,so,can this even be done without copyright problems?And can this be an actual variant someday?

New podcast segment: Dip Dilemmas
In a semi recent podcast episode Kaner and I floated the idea of a Diplomacy Dilemmas segment where players either post via a forum thread or PM us a tricky problem/issue they're having in a game for our "sage" guidance. We'll be recording next week, so send your dilemmas through!
Yeah, like what do I do with that Amby guy?

Gunboat...

It almost never fails, that as soon as I get moving in one direction, someone is assaulting me from another direction and I end up fighting a stalling action on two fronts trying to delay my elimination with neither opponent having the two front problem I have, and neither accepting my overtures toward peace. Yet I see frequently that players who moved later than I did end up with the initiative of having that luxury of choosing an enemy who is already otherwise occupied. Is gunboat fundamentally different from press in that gaining early momentum is not advantageous and that a wait and see policy is better to understand the likely flow of board dynamics before making a move? After resolving that not so simple yes/no question, how does one determine the right time to make a move in gunboat to have a better chance that I apparently do of avoiding that two front war in every gunboat game?

Haha, "sage" advice. More like a drunken kaner trying to make sense of that very same problem :)
Shhh Kaner. I'll be drunk too. But I don't think anyone else has noticed!

Thanks Doc and Leif for suggestions. Feel free everyone to contribute to the dilemmas!

Lol.... when they build several armies on your side of their country.? When your various neighbours start copying you snippets of messages from your (soon to be ex) ally with stuff like "I'll take x and you take y, ok?" Most telling... when they had been chatty and suddenly, they're not replying to your messages...
Hey folks the first ever segment of Diplomacy Dilemmas is now available in Episode 13 of the Diplomacy Games podcast. Kaner and I tackle the thorny issues raised by Doc, Leif and Ezio. As usual go to the website, iTunes, Stitcher etc to have a listen.
Hi everyone

Kaner and I will be getting together in a couple of weeks to record another podcast or two.

If you enjoyed our Diplomacy Dilemmas segment, or have your own Dip Dilemma you'd like our advice on, please post to this thread or PM one of us.

Dip Directions?
In episode 11 of the Diplomacy Games podcast Kaner and I discussed longevity aspects and risk management of sites like vDip and webDip to ensure they grow and reduce the chances of going down (either technically speaking or perceptions of IP infringement). We said we'd create a thread for this for others to contribute. What do you reckon?

Return to Vdip
Hi All!

After a nearly 2.5 year hiatus from playing here, I thought it might be a good time to stop back over and take a peek at what's going on. I've missed some of the variants here, and am hoping to be able to gather up a solid group of players to play a few games (not all at once necessarily) and give me that variant "fix" I've been missing. Anyone interested in some top notch play?
