New Variant: Dawn of the Enlightenment
It is on a temporary homepage, http://davidecohen.wixsite.com/diplomiscellany, since I am having a bit of trouble editing my main website. Please take a look. I would love to get comments, suggestions and criticism.

Does vDiplomacy not have an option to send email notifications upon important game events?

I just recently set up a game, then came back to check on it a couple days later only to find that I'd NMR'd it without even knowing. I couldn't find anything in my email, even in Spam or Trash.

Since some discrepancies arose from the Winning thread, (what else is new?) here we go. We start with a question, and the person that correctly answers it posts a question of their own, and it continues.

Cold War Tournament
I am looking to start a rated Cold War tournament consisting of group and knockout stages. Groups of 4 will face each other twice, once as each country. The top two (or three, pending interest) from each group will move on to the knockout stage, with each matchup lasting two games. Users will play as each country once. If tied 1-1, an additional two games are played until a winner is determined.

Austrian Succession: New and Improved
After four years, War of Austrian Succession is nearing completion! Please come help test it so that I can perfect the balance.
It would be very helpful if we could have no NMRs for the first few phases. http://lab.diplomail.ru/board.php?gameID=64
Safari (1549 D (B))
Fri 05 Jan UTC
To clarify, this test game is being held on the lab testing site http://lab.diplomail.ru/index.php.

War of Austrian Succession is a variant designed to be a little trickier than the average diplomacy game at the beginning -- you'll have to be cutting deals from turn one to capitalize on your country's potential. I'd love to hear your feedback!

gorgeous map.

will be curious to see how the piedmont-savoy position plays out, and how often Austria gets to hang on to Milan. The surrounding threat of Spain would make me (as the P-S player) very prone to cut whatever-anyever deal I can with Spain in the beginning. Still, France, Austria and the Ottomans are a factor too, and while the P-S position looks very challenging, it's probably a very fun dynamic for an active negotiator.

Thanks for hopping in! That's 4 of 9 spots currently filled. Also, make sure to check out the variant page for more info (so you're not surprised when some powers start with fewer units than supply centers, for example).

@BenjaminHester nice thoughts. I think Piedmont-Sardinia is an interesting one as well. It's made a bit easier by the fact that Spain doesn't get any units in Italy until the first round of builds. Also of note is the island of Sardinia starting with an army, so they have to decide what to do with that.

Apologies for missing my moves on the lab - I'm getting a bug that says "Error: Column 'ip' cannot be null" which has been preventing me from logging in. Anyone know a fix? (I've gotten around it before by accessing the site from a different network but I don't have access to one currently)

Hey Safari - Flame let us know on the DiploLab about you having log-in issues. I wonder about the nature of the error: hopefully others here may be able to advise.

Thanks Ambassador. I was able to access the site about five minutes ago, but before I could check in on any games the bug returned. Heartbreaking.

A noob question about R###
Hey Guys, new to the site (and fairly new to diplomacy).
Next to players names are their diplomacy points, I get all that, but next to that is an R### number, I may be missing it, but I cant see this in the rules. (ie name is NAME(1000/R92). What does this number mean?

Sengoku Nagashino Feedback Thread
Hi Sengoku Nagashino players - please deposit your thoughts here for designer digestion as the first round of games resolves.

Please do not directly comment on the situation/players etc. of any active games. Please limit your comments to the variant design itself, as it appears at gamestart. Once a game has completed, it is fair game for analysis, but not before please.

Deep philosophical question about American culture
So I teach at a major public research university. And I keep noticing that my male students in their early 20s seem with a surprisingly high probability to be intimately familiar with the movie Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. This movie came out when I was in high school. And at the same time, they seem ignorant of In Living Color which is readily available on Youtube. So why DBAMTSCWDYJITH and not, for example, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka?
