NEW WORLD WAR 2 TEAM GAME!
Game to be played as 2 teams of 3.

Like many people on this website I’m a big fan of military history. I’ve created a new game called "WW2 Team Game". The idea is to recreate world war 2 as it was fought between the 2 teams of axis and allies. The invite code is "fatboy". Below are the rules. Please read and understand them before signing up.

1) Team 1 will consist of the allies (England, France and Russia). Team 2 will consist of the axis (Germany, Japan and Italy)

2) No draw may occur if it contains both a member of team 1 and team 2. All drawing players must be on the same team. What this essentially means is that all 3 players from one team must be eliminated before the other team can draw.

3) As soon as all 3 players from one of the teams are eliminated then the surviving members of the other team must draw immediately and end the game. They are not allowed to continue fighting in the hope of attaining a solo win.

Anything not covered by those 3 rules is allowed. You are allowed to attack your own team mates (although it’s probably not a good idea) and a solo win is possible.

The allied powers in ww2 were not a hive mind. Even within an alliance each country had its own agenda and goals and there was often distrust between allies. They were more like alliances of convenience rather than a loving brotherhood. This game attempts to re-create that. You are still trying to achieve the best result for your individual country within your team.

Some further points to consider:

1) If one of your team members is eliminated then you still must kill all the members of the other team before you can end in a draw for your team. Since a 2 way draw is impossible on vdiplomacy, what this essentially means is that if one of your team members is eliminated then the only way that you can then win is by a solo victory. This means that there is an extra incentive to protect and support your weaker team mates if they are in trouble.

2) If you are (secretly) hoping to achieve a solo win remember that the game ends in a draw immediately after all 3 members of the other team are dead. This means that you have to arrange for either one or both of your team members to be eliminated BEFORE all 3 members of the enemy team are dead if you are to achieve this goal.

Any questions or comments put in this thread and I will answer them.

Mechanically, you can solo even if no-one is eliminated, what's stopping you from doing that?

Nothing is stopping you from solo by yourself. It's much more difficult though than achieving a draw and how many games of vdiplomacy do you see where there is a solo win and NOBODY is eliminated? Is youngstown WW2 map. Normal press. I admit that this is a bit of an experiment and may not work. That's why its an unrated game. I just wanted to give it a try.

Global press won't work because then then the other team can hear what you are discussing with your allies about how you are going to co-ordinate your attack.

You can also just set the target SC count to much more than half of the standard amount, or ask the mods to change it since the game has already been set up :)

If you're going for authenticity there should be a rule that no Japanese unit can attack a Soviet unit or SC and vice versa.

Japan and the USSR never declared war on each other until the Soviets declared war like a week before the Japanese surrendered.
FYI - both Japan and the USSR attacking a neutral at the same time is cool. Oh and of course the Japanese can't support a German/French attack on the USSR and likewise if Germany/France attacks the USSR it can't be supported by Japan.

I assume fair though for Japan to support hold I/G if its is attacked by Russia and vice versa (USSR support hold F/UK against a Japanese attack)
Typo above, I mean Japan can't support a Italy/German attack on the USSR and likewise if UK/France attacks Japan the USSR can't be support.

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).

Mongolian Empire
Just to nip this in the bud, this should be 100 years later than the start time (1320 start NOT 1230 start) and it should be 14th century on the map.

Other than that - looking forward to seeing how this plays out! :)

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
