New Weekly Diplomacy Newsletter
Hey guys. I've started a weekly diplomacy email. The goal is to keep everyone updated on the current events going on across the community both online and the local scene. I'll also be including weekly strategy articles. You can see the past issues and subscribe here https://bit.ly/2mvDOTX

I hope you'll sign up, but I also wanted to hear what are some things you'd like to see. Be sure to keep me updated also with new variants so I can announce them. Thanks!

Winning
Oli won.
On Imperial Civilization's off-topic thread (link inside), there was a brief stint of Second to Last Person to Post Wins. Now that the thread is closed, Oli won.

Adjacency Championship
I'm interested in finding what territory has the most adjacencies in all of Vdip. Why? For fun.
If you find a new winner, please type in the Variant's name, the territory name, and it's terr-ID (this makes it easier to find).

Variant: Europa Renovatio
Territory name: Strait of Gibraltar (SOG)
Terr-ID: 723
Number of adjacencies: 38

I don't think anything is going to top SOG.

Territory name: Gascony

That should be *44 adjacencies, actually.

Dawn of the Enlightenment has a bunch of provinces (high seas provinces, which are similar to but simpler than sea lane provinces) in the high 20's. I thought *that* was a ton. Dayyum!

On the other side of the coin, Conno and Corws in the variant Duo (terr-IDs 7 and 10 respectively) have only one adjacency each.
Macca573 (1229 D)
Tue 18 Feb UTC
They're both SC centers, that seems like bad design.

If it becomes relevant, the game has probably already been decided.

@Macca573: Indeed. To improve things, there should be one more non-SC adjacency.

I have played the map quite a lot and I think that the design works pretty well. It makes you decide between taking a SC, build another unit and come back stronger or rather using the fleet in question to pressure the enemy.
Macca573 (1229 D)

I suppose it isn't as bad since it is a 1v1 map. The SC single adjacency is an issue when it lets you infinitely hold out to a draw.
BobMcBob (1323 D)

I think that those centers were completely intentional and pretty good design. They provide an interesting decision to make. Generally I'd prefer rear fleet pressure but if you need to pick up a center then it's a trade you can make. I like it.

How about adjacency to only SC territories? WAP and UBS in A Modern Europe (variantID=136) are both adjacent to 8 SCs

If we're going by SC adjacencies, Strait of Gibraltar in Europa Renovatio is adjacent to 10 SCs.

For land provinces only, I found 7 SCs adjacent to Bavaria in Viking Diplomacy (variantID=63)

New Bedford (NBD) in Divided States also borders 7 SCs.

The Circle
Recently been watching the new Netflix series "The Circle." It's a game show where the participants can only interact with each other through a "social network" where they can say or post whatever they want. Multiple people on the show are catfishing and lying while also forming a lot of great legitimate friendships. Reminded me a lot of playing Diplomacy

Both Colombia and Argentina got to 18SCs (the winning number on this map) on the same turn. Colombia was marked as winning. How is this determined?
