Variants and Copyright
I've seen some other sites have Game of Throne and Lord of the Ring Diplomacy variants. Is there a particular reason why vDip doesn't? I know in the past postal zine there were even Star Wars and Star Trek ones. Is this a copyright issue or just no one has put one together?

Classic- Caspian Variant?
Now I don't know how to code or make maps, so I likely can't do this, but I do think it would be entertaining for someone to create a map based upon this discussion (http://www.diplomacy-archive.com/resources/humour/coast_moscow.htm) where Moscow can build fleets and have them move through Sev (perhaps by means of the Volga-Don Canal?)

Alexander's wars period maps
Interesting map to be developed as WebDiplomacy-map. Of course balance-fix and terretory-changes to the map are to be done.

Variants to Port to webDip
I won Zultar's (webDip co-owner) New Year's prize, which is getting to pick three variants, of which they'll pick one (if possible) to port over. I don't play many variants, so I'm asking the experts:
What are three popular, stable variants that don't have much—if anything, in terms of special rules, (basically nothing that involves messing with the adjudicator, since it is a big, scary, complex bit of code)—that you would want to see included on webDiplomacy.net?

Appears to be allowed, although it really shouldn't be
Apparently, if you take over a country in CD in one game, then CD yourself, you can later take over a different CD'd country in the same game. Perhaps this should be disallowed? I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts.

Is it possible to change the phase times to something like 24hrs to 12hrs once the game has started or do we need to start a new game?

instructions for entering orders
We have many players in our game who are familiar with Diplomacy but new to vDiplomacy or web-based Diplomacy in general. Is there a guide somewhere for how to enter orders on vDiplomacy and how to check that they have been understood by the adjudicator?

Saga of the Nine (r2) Recruiting (Discord game)
Last year, we held the first playtest of new variant "Saga of the Nine" on Discord, using the PlayDip forums as a permanent hosting site. "Saga of the Nine" is an alt-history alt-geography variant for nine players based loosely on Norse mythology.

My co-designer, Aeschines, is running round two, and we're recruiting for it now. Details to follow in this thread.

NEW WORLD WAR 2 TEAM GAME!
Game to be played as 2 teams of 3.
diplopoet (943 D)

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.
diplopoet (943 D)
28 Feb 20 UTC
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 :)

need 2 more
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.

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).
