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?

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.

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?

Nice one Mitomon. By saying that, you are implying that you are not intelligent and I am. So since I am the supreme ruler of intelligence, I command that everyone be intelligent. YAAAAAAYYYYYYY! Now we are all the smarterest pepes evs.

Hello fellow HQDominators. We should join together and rule the galaxy.

Mitomon, you also spelled "anywhere" wrong. This proves that I am the smartest person ever. I know this because my gramma told me so.
Wow, this basically the most popular thread ever because vallk is here.

Your math is off TBHQD. Some people may have had mastectomies and have one or even no nipples while others, like Scaramanga, have a superfluous third nipple. Then there are the animals many of whom have 6, 8, or 10 nipples. And artificial nipples found on baby bottles and grease nipples on cars.

There are more airplanes under the ocean surface than submarines in the sky.

And some, I assume, have good nipples.

But what if all the submarines (which are naturally airtight) were converted into space craft when the Gamilon's attack and they all head off to fight the Gamilon's while the Yamato heads off to Iscandar?

Hello my children
Hello father.
Or should I say mother. The world may never know.
I grew up watching Star Blazers. It was probably the first anime to come to kids TV out of Japan with real adult themes and an overarching storyline. It didn't "talk down" to kids but expected them to use their brains. I was 13 in 1979 when it came out. Between it and Doctor Who on PBS, I had hope for TV after all. Cause Dukes of Hazard and Love Boat weren't cutting it.
my goodness my father or mother is here
Everybody go to the problems thread. We can fix each others problems.

Star Blazers was one of my favorite shows as a kid. My dad rented the DVDs from Neflix since he liked it so much and we would watch a season every few weeks until the stockpile ran out. I think I was 6-8 somewhere around there in the early '00s so I was too young to remember most of it, but it was fairly lit for back then

YCHTT - I loved Star Blazers as a kid too. That wave motion gun kicked ass! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kj4PSlqt4BQ
Star Blazers is the best TV show ever. I was 10 when it came out. I watched that show for half of my life.
I've never heard of star blazers can someone please explain?
Everyone here is like, in there 40's it seems. The elderly rule.
HQDeevejot (928 D)
Thu 13 Apr UTC
The last time I saw star blazers was back in 1980 when I was 26 years old.
Vallk, how old are you? I feel like you are a teenager, but everyone else here is in their 40's. Sorry if I sound a little creepy.

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.

Minor map issues
Is anybody able to make minor cosmetic map changes to the variants, for readability? There's two small things I've noticed:

* Imperial Diplomacy II: there's a connection between Morocco and W. Med, but the map really doesn't show it.
* First Crusade: The Sardinia supply centre in the large map is placed in an odd, almost invisible spot.
