Critique of variant "Hundred"
Premise: While "Hundred" is an interesting concept for a Diplomacy variant, its geography and number of players reduce the number of potential outcomes such that the variant is not worth playing.

question regarding a variant.
How hard would it be, If there isn't one already, to make a variant where Switzerland is passable? I would like to see how that would play out, and would love to see such a thing implemented here.

Haven: Discussion about the custom-icons...
What do you think about the custom icons for the Haven variant?
Each power has it's very different icons for it's armies and fleets (and there's a small overview in the upper right corner).
Can you recognize the different powers by it's icons? Or would you like a "flag" for the units in no-sc and sea areas?

it is the fist time i am playing this map, with no-messages it will be faster and, also, i will be able to learn the map better
next time i wil create one with messages
Join us, there are 2 slots free still
RoxArt (1732 D)

1st: it wont be faster, there is always people waiting out the time....
2nd why learn the map better? its just luck (or metagaming) to give or get help....

i joined with my last points for you so it starts ;)
but as i said, there is always someone thats not fast hehe :D
btw youre not allowed to stab me :p

about the 1st and 2nd, i know i know, but i am full of maneirisms :D

Parthia is Persia
ostapbender (988 D)
30 Jan 11 UTC
well, i am not persia in the game and it is not entirelly correct to call them the same, they have some differences
ostapbender (988 D)
30 Jan 11 UTC
the partians were a tribe of nomads that grew and conquered persia, yadda yadda yadda...
but, to tell the truth, i think parthia would be more suitable to this map then persia... whatever
gopher27 (1606 D Mod)
30 Jan 11 UTC
Parthia, Persia; Macedonia, Greece; Poh-tayt-oh, Paw-tawt-oh
ostapbender (988 D)
30 Jan 11 UTC
yep, and Buenos Aires is the capital of Brazil
ostapbender (988 D)
30 Jan 11 UTC
Sorry Gopher, i may have sounded unpolite with my last message, sorry
but really to call the partians persians (and vice versa) is a bit simplistic, even your exemple of macedonia and greece is a real mess, the macedonians were considered 2nd class greeks (when considered), now the country called macedonia and greece are "disputing" the name
gopher27 (1606 D Mod)
31 Jan 11 UTC
When looking at the map for the game in question, if Macedonia existed as a playable power, we would know that it replaced Greece. And since Persia ruled Egypt as long as it ruled the Levant, Parthia would be a more reasonable choice.

As for the Buenos Aires comment, substituting Rio would be a more comparable example. The statement was about time frame.
ostapbender (988 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
I agree with you, i think Macedonia and Parthia are more suitable for the map then greece and persia
ostapbender (988 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
About BA-Rio comment, I wrote It because it is a very common mistake due to a simplist view of other cultures
ostapbender (988 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
if we talk about territories only then, of course, you can say parthia=persia... it would be preciosim to say differently
RoxArt (1732 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
whatever youre talking bout for me it seems green and red are metagaming....
ostapbender (988 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
because rome and greece are not ttackin each other? how can we prove that it is happening?
RoxArt (1732 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
we cant prove it... its just that greece didnt even dare going left and didnt even think of that the red could attack and red is not even thinking of moving the tank farther east so for me its clear they have an agreement not to fight?
RoxArt (1732 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
i mean green leaves his flank wide open.... why should he do that...?
ostapbender (988 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
I think te same,but when playing this kind of game, people tend to find out solutions of how to show their intention to cooperate, like not sendig their army against such enemy or supporting a possible order of him/herr, expecting the enemy will catch the message and agree with the ''pact''.
But it can be also metagaming....
RoxArt (1732 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
well there was no such thing, it was wide open from beginning...
whatever... well see...
ostapbender (988 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
well, then the other 3 countries should do the same ;) it is the only medicine agaisnt metagaming
RoxArt (1732 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
well i hope they are reading along...
im trying to concentrate on 1 side... but i cant say who im am can i .... :p
ostapbender (988 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
well, i suppose you are not rome nor greece
if you say who you are you will be metagaming :D i think
i will thik about sending some move signs to my neighbors to negotiate a truce, otherwise i believe my position won't get better
this variant seems to be faded to a draw, if played with no messages...
ostapbender (988 D)
31 Jan 11 UTC
who is the fool who created this no-chat game? :D :D
RoxArt (1732 D)

i told that fool before... :p
RoxArt (1732 D)

and they both build only fleets.... so no attack on each other... as i said.... ;)
