First things first, this isn't actually a game yet, I was wondering about this as a special rules game and wanted to get some comments and suggestions back on it as well as work out some difficulties. Feel free to call it too complex or impractical. Rules will follow.

2012 WebDip World Cup championship podcast interview
You're probably familiar with this mammoth effort culminating in 104 years of gampeplay (http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=93086) - now you can hear Goldfinger, Leif and JECE's take in our podcast interview at DiplomacyGames.com, iTunes and Stiticher. Enjoy!
I played a 1v1 game yesterday but the other player had to leave before the game was over. I would appreciate it if someone could explain how they thought the game would go and what good moves/mistakes each player made. I'm new to 1v1 and am trying to get better Thanks
Rinascimento is a horribly unbalanced variant. While I realise it is set in a historical setting and the powers at the time were not of the same strength, it is virtually unplayable for several of the smaller factions.
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/
