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.

Retreats and builds phase length
Is there any feature allowing the game creator to implement shorter retreats and build phases in comparison to normal phases. As less time is needed for them it makes sense to have for example 2 days for orders and 1 day for retreats and builds.

Game Transfer
Is it possible to transfer a game without conceding or losing your reliability? I accidently joined a game that I thought was gunboat but isn't.

Asking about the creators of Cold War
Hello, I am a long-time diplomacy player but a new member of this community and I wanted to know who created the now-infamous Cold War variant. Is it Firehawk and Safari, and if so, I would like permission to use their map on my own soon-to-be free-to-play Diplomacy app.

Speed Europa Retreat Option Fix
So I am in the middle of a Speed Europa game. I was forced to retreat from Barent's Sea and the options I was given were Iceland, North Atlantic Ocean, and Serbia. Siberia borders Barent's Sea but Serbia does not (as you can probably imagine). I retreated to Serbia thinking that maybe it was a typo and I would retreat to Siberia. But I did in fact retreat to Serbia, with a fleet! So if somebody knows how to fix this, that'd be great. The game name is: Speed Europa Gunboat

Variants to Include in a Printed Collection
Several variant creators in the community are looking to create a curated collection of variants. The idea is that groups in the hobby will be able to have this collection printed and shipped to them. That way, the hobby can have easy access to alternatives to playing modifications of the Classic board if they can't get exactly 7 players to meet.

We're looking for well-balanced variants designed for 2-10 players (including 7 player boards) that have similar rules to Classic and have a relatively similar duration.

If you want to suggest a variant, or multiple variants, to be included in the collection, please fill out the form here: https://forms.gle/JS2EaajjMNYyR5rZA

There's no particular time frame that this will be done by. We will try to contact the original creators of the variants to make sure they consent to their work being included. Hopefully, there will be more updates on this project in the future!

I also like Fall of the American Empire, but it isn't the most balanced (Cuba) and can be very reliant on early game

Atlantic colonies (4 players)! Very balanced, if handled well, any nation can win in this variant.
And War of Austrian Succession (9 players) is one of my favourite. It is a tricky variant though, because for example it would seem good to attack Austria as Bavaria early on, but it is a very bad idea from my expierience. But if it is played correctly, then it is very well balanced.

I feel like there needs to be a few restrictions on the selection of variants in order for this to be succesful:

1 - no change of the base rules (ie. No build anywhere, only two units, no strange territory rules)
2 - historical in nature
3 - balanced as proved by the statistics on this website

Other than those I thoroughly approve of this initiative.

More scoring confusion
We had a game end in a draw and the points split equally, but then no one's score (win or lose) changed. ie. I won 12 D points and my score went from 1571(v) -> 1571 (v). Since the help pages are "for our sister site and don't apply here", can someone explain what's going on here? ID: 59410

Our PPSC game scored as if WTA
Pot = 40 points. Three-way draw at 11, 14, and 15 SC.
Game is listed as PPSC, but awarded 13 points (40/3) to each person.

I'm not worried about the points, but if it's a bug I wanted to let y'all know.

https://www.vdiplomacy.com/board.php?gameID=58525
I soloed two times in Classic, and each gave me about 200 points, and this variant has 17 players, so I thought it'll be about 450 points or so. Now I get 861 points and reach #21. So how ranking changes are calculated?

Applying to be a mod for private games
Hi, I have introduced my colleagues to Diplomacy and we all love it. However, for the next time we play, it would be great to be able to play with faster turns, but pause it over weekends and evenings.
Is there any way to get mod privileges without taking part in dozens of private games?

ER Team Game Revival
Hey Folks! I was recently thinking about the Europa Renevatio Team game we did a couple years ago and I think we can do it again, better this time. Among the improvements, it may be ideal to determine the teams ahead of time and make them public so we can try to come up with a "balanced" set of 9 teams of 4. Would anyone else (err... 35 others?) want to give it a shot?

Any SEA Players? Newbie here looking to find some community!
Hey! I'm Alien, a player based in the Philippines (GMT+8). I got introduced to Diplomacy around this time last year, and I'm finally getting back into the hobby since summer is just around the corner. It's been a struggle finding people to talk to or play with since this hobby isn't the *most* accessible, and most of the players seem to be from the US and EU. Is there anyone from in and around the SEA region looking to link up and organize some games?

IA Map Bugs with New Variant
I've got a variant I'm adding called Incensed. In the playtesting, there are issues with the interactive map. Certain regions work just fine. But there are some regions that don't get highlighted or can't really be clicked on. I'm not sure what the issue is. Seems like it also depends on what browser is being used, too. Any variant creators run into similar issues or know what might be the cause/solution?
