Diplomacy Bidding Start:
Each nation starts with their capital city and four tokens to bid for other home centers with. All of the players reveal their bids at once for the biding phase. If a player is the only player to have bid on a supply center then that supply center becomes a home center of that player. If two players bid on the same supply center the player who bid the most on the supply center gets it as their home center. If they bid the same amount on the supply center then the supply center remains neutral. After bidding there is no build phase. All Supply Centers that become a nation's Home Centers will have either a navy or army in the territory. See the following table for a complete overview:
