You don't want to see this map
https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/457218478659731465/770001163185553418/diplomap.png

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could play this map? I figured it would probably be here but can't find it in the variants. (I didn't make this but I'm a big fan of it).

I made a big map viewer (to switch between turns easily)
I wanted a way to switch between turns while viewing the big map, so I put together this simple viewer app quickly: https://vdiplo-bigmap.netlify.app/ Hint: you can use the arrow keys to switch between turns.

I am currently playing my first game ever, so this may not make a lot of sense to the more experienced among you (which is all of you). Let me know if you find this helpful or not.

Cancel not Draw!
I wish in wDip engine there was not a possibility to vote draw when all the starting powers are alive. Cause multiple games are played by rookies and they do several seasons and press "vote Draw". In this case we have misunderstanding in variant statistics - tons of draws with no combat at all. If all powers left on the board -> it's not a draw! Game should be cancelled!!!

Why does NMRing stop you rejoining games
I can understand why there’s a temporary ban on joining new games and making games but banning you from rejoining the game you were kicked from seems like it causes even more disruption to the game in question.

Disclaimer: I’m a bit salty about missing the deadline for a game by a few minutes because I misremembered when the timer would tick over

Playtesters (and possibly a GM) Needed for Unconstitutional, a New Variant
See following.
I have created a new variant, Unconstitutional, which is a 5 player variant set in eastern North America in the early 19th Century. The scenario is that the United States of America never ratified the Constitution, and the country is falling apart. Powers are New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, South Carolina and the Western Confederacy (Tecumseh’s Confederacy). Rules changes are fairly simple. Winner owns 16 of the 31 Supply Centers, Powers may build in any Supply Center they own, there are holding armies in neutral Supply Centers and some navigable rivers (no river convoys).

If you are interested in playing or maybe GMing a game if there is enough interest for multiple playtests, please email me at zendip18AToptonlineDOTnet or message me. I will be advertising on multiple platforms. Variant map may be found at https://davidecohen.wixsite.com/diplomiscellany/unconstitutional .

I'd like to play as well. What platform will this be on?
Not sure yet. There may be more than one playtest and if so, they will be in different places.

Swede -

Replace the "AT" with "@" and the "DOT" with "." and it should work for you.
Thanks Drano. I do try to avoid leaving email addresses arounf to be scooped by bots and sometimes forget that not everyone does this.
It looks like we have 1 playtest set up and need just one more player for the 2nd playtest. If interested, please email me at zendip18AToptonlineDOTnet or message me. I will be advertising on multiple platforms.
The second playtest appears to be full.
