Dear vdip community, a group of players from a German site came up with the idea of creating a gunboat game, exchanging phone numbers and communicate solely via whatsapp. I thought that the idea is pretty cool and would love to try it out.
Howdy folks! New to the site, interested in all things diplomacy. What should I know about this place so I don't step on anyone's toes? I'm Chris Martin, playing Diplomacy mostly in the USA. Looking forward to meeting folks and maybe playing a few games.
PSA: Do not create Pick Your Country games with the Choose Your Country option enabled.
There's a bug in the PYC variant that causes it to crash when the game starts if the Choose Your Country option is enabled. Getting the games to cancel after everyone has joined requires banning/unbanning one player in the game, which can cause a lot of issues if that player is in other games, and is a fair amount of work even if they're not.
Until Oli is able to fix the bug (which may be a while), please only use the Random Country Assignment option for PYC.
Some of you may remember last year's NWO (New-World Order) game that I GM'd. It's a play-by-email game that uses a world map with 40+ nations of varying sizes. It comes complete with wing units, nuclear missiles, and rampant back-stabbing. You can check out last year's game and the rules here: http://www.sendric.com/diplomacy/

Started a new game on the map "anarchy in the uk" it's a good map I think and I feel it's not used as often as it should be. Please join if you're interested. http://vdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=27743
I have been working on creating VDip-compatible maps for the Game of the Clans variant developed by Stephen Agar. Once they're complete, I'd love to have people to play-test it. PM me or post here if you're interested.
