Classic Redrawn
I got bothered with some of the historical inaccuracies of the Classic map - like French Corsica being painted Italian green - so I went on and redrawed the entire map.

'Edwardian' - A new variant
Greetings diplomats.

I present you @VaeVictis's 'Edwardian' - an upcoming jewel to vDiplomacy's glorious crown. 'Edwardian' is set in 1901, the start of the Edwardian Era, and represents the intrigue and tension of the period with a level of elegance and detail never seen before

WWII Tournament
I would like to start a tournament. I've seen the Known World and 1v1 tournaments, and those are great fun. So why not apply it to World War II? I'm still working out the details, but I'll post some details.

Advertise your NON-live games here!
In an effort to compromise the pro-ads versus anti-ads for games: Post here for your non-live games to cut down on the number of ads but still advertise games. Post game link, WTA or PPSC, and the bet. Note: this doesn't count for special rules games.

Four new variants, based on Classic, will be coming to vDip!

Some of these were directly taken from the DP Judge. Others were lost in the Variant Bank for a long while.

Anonymous Games
Anonymous Games grant liars a shelter to do there worst, making abusive and absurd offered and generally making me passionately hate this game, which can lead to NMRs . Having to be out there means you have to have honor, and enables revenge. I have seen allies pitch in by hopping from one neutral territory to yhe next in the name of their promises. This site seems to be for the childish.

Replace PPSC with something rank-based?
I've put together a length proposal over on PlayDip to provide a rank-based scoring system for draws that's similar to the Carnage system used in several North American Dip tournaments today.

Looking for someone to take over my country (Not in a bad position)
Currently 13/35 countries remain and my country, Brazil, is in 8th place after some set backs with NMRs. Currently allied with the 2nd place country, Argentina, as a fight between the two of us will ultimately be the doom of our existence. Argentina has said that a substitute will not charge the alliance between our two countries.

Reply if interested in taking over.

1066 Tournament
As discussed in episode 23 of the Diplomacy Games podcast I'm thinking of putting together a 1066 tournament. Interested takers?
Page 5 of 5
Just a reminder, when all 3 players join a games do NOT enter orders. I need to reallocate players to countries so there's balanced gameplay in the tourney.
One player hasn't signed up for the 1066 tournament despite requests. As a result as tourney director I'm inviting any other players who want to participate to come forward.

Read the thread for details.
Didn't BobRoss volunteer to join if we needed an extra player back on page three?
I'll PM him. Hopefully he's not too busy painting fluffy clouds.
Haven't heard back from Bob Ross. There's still a spot available for an interested player.

I assume you were trying to reach out to me? I haven't received any PM's, otherwise i would most certainly have responded to it ;-)

Yet, I unfortunately won't be able to cover that last spot anymore. I have too much other stuff going on at the moment to take any new games.

Hope you guys will find a ninth player soon!

Just to note, whoever in Group B has joined games 1-5 but not gameID=33417 (game 6), there's limited time remaining to join the last one before it times out.
Apologies Bob, I sent a PM but sent it to the wrong registered player who was down with a space between Bob and Ross. Thanks for letting me know.

And re: Group B Game 6, I'll extend that one now.
Still looking for a possible replacement folks.

I skimmed through real quick and it sounds like it hasn't started? 48h, unrated and the one thing I couldn't catch is if it's full press or gunboat.

Happy to hop in regardless of the setup, just like to know what I'm getting myself into :)
Hi Spartan

2 of the 3 groups have started. Just not the group where a player is unable to signup due to complications.

And yes 48 hour, unrated and gunboat.

So any status update on this? Group B has finished 5 games, but still needs to play the 6th. What about Group A and C?
Ok, Here's an update:

- all Group C games are complete and there is a finalist for that group
- 5 out of 6 Group B games are complete. Game 6 is yet to start and the earlier version I created has expired. As its getting late here and I don't want to screw up the player allocation I'll set this one up sometime tomorrow.
- 1 game is complete in Group A, and 1 game is in progress. The other 4 games expired. Likewise I'll need to create these again and allocate players and remind Group A players to move things on a little.

Thanks again to all 1066 Tourney players.
All games for all Groups are now up and running and countries have been correctly allocated.

Have fun and good luck!

(Group C is complete and can ignore this message)

Group B is done, and avoided ending tied 2-2-2 so we have a single finaslist.
I came close. I had 2 capitals but only 8 SCs while mouse had 10. He took an 11th and had me down to 7 making it a foregone conclusion. Little rodent wouldn't draw either even though he'd still win the round. :-D

I was thinking about just calling for the draw as soon as England was dead, but yeah, it would only have been 1 more year of play anyway :p
Good job lads. Just need the Group A guys to wrap things up, then its onto the finals!

How're we progressing on getting to the next stage of the tourney?
The final group has a 1 v 1 game to tie break that one. Then the final starts :-)
