New Thread Idea
Does anyone know Polish History? Did The Deluge cause such material damage that it doomed Poland to economic and political death spiral, did it devastate the proto-bourgeois, densely populated Northwest at a key moment within a republic when it was fighting with the rural, agrarian South and East thus stunting an incipient movement towards urbanization and development or did it not really have any long term effect?

Scramble for Africa Variant - Gauging Interest
I was wondering how interested people would be in a Scramble for Africa variant. I'm already making one for my friends and me to use, so I could easily put it on the lab for testing once it's done.

Where do you post your variant map ideas?
Working on the Calhamer Prototype variant and interested in getting opinions on map design to keep it authenticate. In some cases the maps aren't clear and I'm interested in advice. Where's the best spot folks have found for posting?

Diplomacy: Is Germany Too Weak?
I noticed that Germany is considerably weaker in Diplomacy than it's historical counterpart. In game, Germany can very easily be knocked out by England and France. However, historically Germany was able to fight competently on three separate fronts. Does anybody feel that Germany is a little misrepresented in game?
More importantly, are there any variants that address this?

Feedback for 1v1 Cold War on WWIV map
Hi folks, some of you may have heard me talk on the podcast about bringing the WWIV map to a Cold War circa 1984 1v1 variant. Interested in your thoughts about whether I use the standard WWIV map, the v6.2 version (is there any actual difference in the map itself?) or whether the sealane version would be better. Thoughts?

Live video feed podcast?
Hi folks - Kaner and I are getting together this time next week for another boozy Dip chat.
I was wondering if we found a pub with good wifi whether there'd be anyone who'd be interested enough to watch a live feed video of us recording the podcast?

If so, let us know which platform you use - Facebook Live, Periscope or something else?

What sort of time would you be doing it?
Thanks guys I'm sure Mrs Amby and Mrs Kaner would really appreciate us streaming from there.

Cap, we normally get together after work to record. This upcoming episode would be streamed at:

5 pm Wednesday 15 March (Brisbane time)

That means as you're in the U.K. you win the global time zone prize draw as this is:

7am London 15 March
3 am in East coast USA 15 March
Midnight in West coast USA 15 March.

I think the episode after that will be a double episode (where we usually get more sloshed). That is likely to be recorded during school holidays so we could probably live stream that around 12 noon Brisbane which is

2 am London (sorry you lose there)
10 pm east coast USA (day before)
7pm west coast USA (day before)

Anyone have a preference for Periscope or Facebook Live?
I am East Coast US so can't do the first, but would love to do the second. If you do it with Facebook live, it stays for us to watch as a replay as well (caught a lot of the Geneva autoshow that way, including Aston Martin's AMR unveil). I don't know about Periscope.
Hi folks, well I've been playing with my phone and Googling and can't work out HTF to get Facebook Live working. Whenever I log in with my phone to the Diplomacy Games profile and I follow the instructions on Facebook to live feed, it kicks over to my personal Facebook account.

So fuck Facebook Live. I'll instead try on Periscope. If you're keen at the allotted time above (or maybe a little sooner if the bar isn't busy) we'll live video cast on Periscope tomorrow. Just search at the time for Diplomacy (profile name is DiplomacyGames) or click on the map for Australia and then Brisbane (kind of 3 pm on the clock if the Australian continent was a clockface).
Oh, and in case you live under a rock, Periscope is available in the Apple iTunes Store, or at Google Play etc.

I live under a rock... Never heard of Periscope, but I guess that's what we're going with!
Unless you can work out Facebook Live... Maybe we run Periscope on my phone and FB Live on yours?
WTF 1501 D? You must almost be in the HoF?
I'm 97th so Kaner is still a little way off, but getting close.
In fact, he is ranked 107th right now. Click his name to see his rank. We need to get the HoF page fixed though so I can see my name where it belongs finally on the list.

That was great to watch :) I think what I typed didn't go through... it's possibly because my internet went out for a bit so I ended up a bit behind on the stream.

Glad you enjoyed it, I have to say having the camera there was a little distracting, espc. at first.
Does it record so us Yanks can watch it after the fact?
Yes, if you go to Periscope, search for DiplomacyGames it should have old periscopes there for a little while.
Hi folks, in a week from today (noon AEST Wed 12 Apr, 10 pm US east coast / 7 pm US west coast Tue 11 Apr) Kaner and I will be recording 2 podcast episodes and live streaming on www.periscope.tv/DiplomacyGames.

Do you have a Diplomacy Dilemma for us to discuss? Post now, or give it to us directly live during the Periscope.
Hi folks, this is happening today although we're probably looking at starting about 30 minutes later. Hope to connect with you on Periscope!

Captainmeme (1062 D Mod (B))
13 Apr 17 UTC
Well, I'm a mod :) Nobody else who has posted here is though. You can tell who's a moderator by the checkerboard by their name.

The 'Donator' symbol isn't for donations, it was the result of an event (Oli's daughter being born) in late 2012 - http://www.vdiplomacy.com/promo.php?

The other symbol (the gear) means that person has worked on variants for the site.

The Original Diplomacy Variant
As many of you know, the Calhamer estate is being liquidated and the very first self-published Diplomacy board sold for just over $5000 last week. Well, something else interesting from the same sale - a bunch of prototype maps, these likely being from several years before the game was published.
