Known World Tournament
Awhile back, kaner proposed a Known World gunboat tournament in which 15 participants would play 15 games, one with each nation. I searched back for the thread, then just decided to start a new one. I want to see if there would be sufficient interest in this to try to get it off the ground.

Variant Tournaments
I've really enjoyed playing variant-specific tournaments such as the Known World 15x15 currently underway.

Keep recording in the pub! Amby's crazy enough sober, but when you guys are both hammered, it's bloody fantastic!

Yes, I vote for the pub as well. I actually enjoy what the background noise adds -- though I know that different speakers/systems might be reproducing harsher levels for other people. Have only listened to the first 25 mins or so, but my son absolutely loved hearing you mention him and the story I posted on the previous page. He thinks he's famous now, having been mentioned on a "global radio show." Hilarious.

Thanks Ruff, glad I'm bad when I'm sober and even worse drunk. Kaner last episode with his 7.7% beers was plainly making the whole comprehension of Dissolution's rules that little harder :-D

Doc - equally pleased your son has made it global. If you're still at the 25 min mark, spoiler warning we go onto discuss next episode will be recorded in a speak-easy next to a strip joint (then apologise to you for your son hearing that), and then I go onto discuss getting butt-fucked by someone stabbing , and quickly apologising again. We never said this was PG rated, but maybe you need to pre-listen before your teenage son tunes in!

And if any of you are curious about the Dissolution playtest (discussed at length in the podcast), here's the subforum at PlayDip where it's being hosted:

http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=804

And here are the rules:

http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=253&t=54793#p892791

Suffice it to say that this variant is a tad bit more complicated than an automated interface will allow, but you all might find it interesting nonetheless.

I loved Kaner's rant about KW901 #3. Although he makes himself out to be a martyr, he presents a pretty good recollection of the events throughout the game. He completely ignores the part about how opportunistic and down right malicious his original stab at Ifriqiya was. No one was 'sending me any love' in that one until the very end when Utom refrained from punking me for a dot. That was why I left him alone once Wagadu was destroyed, and didn't explore my own solo chances. In the end I was happy to see Spain draw in this one, but this being a gunboat game I needed a way to convey my limited contempt for the Spanish theft of Ifriqiya. Kaner did pull off a magnificent bluff by threatening to dump his entire position to Russia. I wasn't seeking that much revenge though, and began to consider that Russia was either Eki or Bozo. I knew that Russia wouldn't solo, but wasn't wanting to risk the sum of squares scoring boost that it would give them. Overall, it was a hilarious and entertaining way to discuss an EOG.

I just spent 2.5 hours of my life I'll never get back listening to two Australians drinking and talking about conquering Europe or the World with tiny plastic armies and gunboats. And it was from last September.....

Wouldn't trade it for anything, and I HIGHLY recommend you give them a listen.

Nice job Amby and Kaner

You just need a great white shark to grab him in the last few seconds ;-)
LO!. But I don't think a great white could get that far in to shore. At least not an adult one. Too shallow of water. A tiger shark, however, is quite feasible in 2 foot of water. :-)

Bull sharks too. They're everywhere where Kaner and I live.

And that's not even bringing up the snakes or spiders... or the crocs about 500 kms north of us.

Then there's the bloody sting rays that hit Steve Irwin. Crickey!

Use sunscreen. It stops harmful rays.
I caught a skate (a type of stingray) once when fishing out in the Atlantic just outside of the Chesapeake Bay. That sucker was the toughest thing to bring in. Those fins/bodies of theirs act like suction cups in the sandy bottom of the ocean floor.
Episode 18 of the Diplomacy Games podcast is now live at DiplomacyGames.com. As usual over the next hour or so it should be live on iTunes and Stitcher too.

In the latest episode we open the kimono about webDip, interviewing its co-owner zultar about the process of adding variants, their always entertaining forums and upcoming changes.

For vDip die hards there's stuff in there for you too, with talk about webDip refugees coming to vDip, zultar's favourite vDip variant and discussion on any future vDip-webDip merge. We also talk about the Ancient Med variant. And I send my iPad into meltdown.

Enjoy!

Episode 19 is live on www.DiplomacyGames.com and will be picked up by iTunes and Stitcher in the next couple of hours. This is a back-to-back recording with Ep 18 so Kaner and I (especially me) get a bit drunk.

We discuss new variant ideas, current games and interview Alex Ronke / nopunin10did from PlayDip (creator of the 1812 Overture and Dissolution variants.) Plus Alex shares some exciting news about improvements to the php coding platform that runs the various Dip sites.

So tune in and enjoy!

Episode 20 is now out folks. And we keep the Game of Thrones ball rolling with an interview with our very own RUFFHAUS with his analysis of the TV show's characters through the eyes of a Dip player.

Also being RUFF we discuss his playing style and thoughts on the Bourse end game.

Hear it at www.diplomacygames.com or download from iTunes or Stitcher.

Though i shall net get any hopes up as i can imagine that it requires some solid coding for such a variant to be implemented ;-)

Versailles is probably one of the best variants available on the PlayDiplomacy site. It has some flaws, like any variant, but the two-country mechanic is loads of fun (especially with other variants mixed in).

After I (finally) get 1900 implemented here, I'm going to try and see if I can get Versailles to work (or at least something like it).

obsolete Sengoku variant
Hi all, designer of Sengoku here. I would love to get the latest version of Sengoku in use on this system, as it is much more balanced. Found here: http://dipwiki.com/index.php?title=Sengoku
Even if the DP system, can't be used, the version at http://nairenvorbeck.angelfire.com/ is still better than the one in use currently. Poor Mori needs a fair chance :-) Anyone willing/able to help me get these implemented?

1900 for vDip: Progress Report (ongoing)
As mentioned in another thread, I've been working on the code and assets necessary to port Baron M. Powell's variant 1900 to vDip and/or webDip.

In order to keep myself accountable in some fashion to actually complete this task, and not just talk about it, I've created a small project plan where I can mark my progress.

To Everyone in Furnace of Affliction
I'm really sorry, as I was trying to fix the Indonesia Build bug the game sent everyone into CD and cancelled itself. This was because I forgot about another bug - if you enter all holds, it counts as an NMR even if saved, so when I tried to advance the game 2 phases it assumed everyone had NMR'd twice (even though I'd set hold orders for everyone).

In-game messaging with multiple players without Global Chat
Hi everyone,
I was wondering if there is a way to send messages to multiple players without using the Global Chat. It would very practical for players that are in a 2+ people alliances as they don't need to rewrite everything again for each ally. Is there such a thing yet? If not, I hope a developper passes by and makes a note of this. Thanks!

Public messages hidden from non-players
I noticed public messages in games are hidden from non-players, even for finished games. Does anyone know if this was a deliberate decision on vDip? On webDip these are visible to non-players, which is interesting for looking at the player dynamic or end of game commentary.
