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?

The Exploration game, episode III
One year ago we’ve tested this special rule game based on the Fog of War format.
I have to say that it’s been a fun game with original dynamics.

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.

Thanks Hirnsaege and CoXbot, and Captain/Doc for getting the word out. It appears that we are ready to go into games #5 and #6 with Scuba Steve replacing Mapu. We should probably confirm the interest in the existing waiting list as well since at least three active and reliable players are expressing a desire to participate.
I'm back from my whirlwind of travel and workload, and will return to my normal level of engagement here. Apologies for any delays my absence has caused, and for my shoddy play in the meantime (though that applies more to Sengoku games than this tournament - I'm going to owe a major apology there!). Anyway, I'm trying to catch up on everything and will get the next games going within the next couple of days unless someone beats me to it.

I reviewed this thread to figure out the discrepancy of Argentinean Empire not being on the list. It appears eliwhitney added his name to the list without any discussion about being a replacement, so he might have thought he was joining a new tournament. Also, Maucat had previously asked about joining the tournament, so I think he should have the option to join assuming we need a replacement for Argentinean Empire. Shah has expressed interest in the tournament as well if Maucat and eliwhitney are no longer interested.

I also express interest if others are no longer interested...
So sorry folks. Looks like tomorrow before I can do this (I know you've heard that before). I'm just barely getting my orders in right now, just continually crushed. If any of our senior/experienced members want to create the games in my absence, please do, just follow the same settings.

I have sent out PMs with links/password for games 5 and 6. The roster is as follows:

1. Amby
2. Desert Fox
3. kaner
4. CoxBot
5. Utom
6. Dr. Rec
7. Eki
8. RUFFHAUS 8
9. mapleleaf
10. Leif_Syverson
11. mouse
12. bozo
13. ScubaSteve (replacing Mapu)
14. Hirnsaege
15. Maucat (replacing Argentinian Empire)


In addition, I have created games 7-15. The password is the same. These games are staggered to begin months away, with join phases extended well into the future. You may join these all now if you like, though the intention is simply to have them on my homepage, ready to go when we are. As games 5 and 6 progress, we'll have a "ready-to-go" list for the next games, as we've been doing. None of games 7-15 will begin before we agree to do so.

7 – gameID=30921
8 – gameID=30922
9 – gameID=30923
10 – gameID=30924
11 – gameID=30925
12 – gameID=30926
13 – gameID=30927
14 – gameID=30928
15 – gameID=30929

Really sorry this has taken me so long to address.

I also have to mention that players have contacted me regarding the pacing. First and foremost, remember that in this tournament we have an agreement to ready orders. If you must use the full time, so be it, but please be considerate and prioritize readying orders for this tournament -- especially for retreats and builds. As for frequency of games, I hope that pre-creating all remaining games will reduce the chances of more delays caused by me, so we can get new games started as soon as all are ready for them.

Is there a plan to unpause the games? I haven't set any orders in 5-6, just curious what, if anything, I need to do. Or are we waiting for 3-4 to end?
The games will be unpaused once Captainmeme has a chance to shuffle the nations.

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?

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.
