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.

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!

"V" Diplomacy?
It just occurred to me why it's called V diplomacy.

It's because we have so many Variants!

I've been here for almost a year, and this only just hit me, just wanted to share this amazing knowledge to anyone else that's a little slow.

No, it stands for annihilation. And the D is for destruction. And P is for pulverisation...

Who wins if two players get the same winning SCs?
See: this game
https://vdiplomacy.com/board.php?gameID=41100

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?

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).

Territory is a supply center on the smallmap, isn't on the big map.
Am I going crazy? I'm looking at the Africa variant at https://vdiplomacy.com/variants.php?variantID=83. As far as I can tell, on the smallmap, the Uganda territory is marked as a supply center, while it isn't on the bigmap.

Territory graph
Here we got a "Territory graph module" which can be seen after the game finished.

The problem is that I can understand how to make it work with variants where we got additional powers (neutrals, upc, etc). With variants in which all powers are playable all is good. Please help... cause it's our common work to do WD better!

Not able to choose SoS scoring
When I create a game, I can only choose from WTA and PPSC. Here (https://vdiplomacy.com/points.php#DSS) it says that SoS scoring is available and PPSC was discontinued. This doesn't seem the case. How can I choose SoS for my game?
