Diplomacy: Is Germany Too Weak?
I noticed that Germany is considerably weaker in Diplomacy than it's historical counterpart. In game, Germany can very easily be knocked out by England and France. However, historically Germany was able to fight competently on three separate fronts. Does anybody feel that Germany is a little misrepresented in game?
More importantly, are there any variants that address this?

Known World Tournament
Awhile back, kaner proposed a Known World gunboat tournament in which 15 participants would play 15 games, one with each nation. I searched back for the thread, then just decided to start a new one. I want to see if there would be sufficient interest in this to try to get it off the ground.

Feedback for 1v1 Cold War on WWIV map
Hi folks, some of you may have heard me talk on the podcast about bringing the WWIV map to a Cold War circa 1984 1v1 variant. Interested in your thoughts about whether I use the standard WWIV map, the v6.2 version (is there any actual difference in the map itself?) or whether the sealane version would be better. Thoughts?

Just finished listening - great episode! I have a couple of things to say wrt the Bourse discussion but I'll post that in the WWIV Bourse thread.

A reminder to everyone here - ODC signups (for round 1 at least) close in 3 days! We currently only have 4 vDip representatives on the list. Let's try to increase that number a bit :)

If you want info on the tournament, Carebear explains it all very well in the podcast interview.

I listen to these as I walk between work-college and home ^^ half way through the latest one :) great stuff hope you guys can keep it up :) Hope your thumb is getting better Ambass :P

Also kinda of embarrassing to be asked to get my name pronounced for being in the top 100 and then dropping off of it again xD but the new goal is to get back on it for the 6 month mark :3 Either-way always fun to listen to you guys and to have a diplomacy podcast in general :)

you guys should do a 2 country team gunboat game sometime with you two together verse some fans :) I am sure it would be quite interesting :3

Been listening to a few of these, kind of amusing and weird hearing about a game you're in (albeit vaguely and with 2 weeks old info). (Kaner, is it a stab if I attack you from the very first turn? ;) ) Really appreciate the detailed notes with times, since I kinda skip around.
Thanks Murcanic and zurn on your feedback. Greatly appreciated. If you have further ideas for what you, or any other listeners, want to hear discussed in the podcast suggest away!

I've asked Kaner if he's interested in the 2 vs 2 team game but haven't heard back. That said with the number of games we're in it might be a little while off.
Murcanic (1441 D)

Hearing you two complain about being in too many games is always fun ^^ but one I want to say the latest podcast was much nicer to listen too as it had less background noise then any previous ones to my knowledge.

As for further ideas I think that depends, what are the goals you two have for this podcast and what do you and kaner enjoy most about making this podcast? might as well brainstorm something you guys would like/enjoy doing :)
Switch out of periscope. There isn't a client for Windows phone or Windows OS on the PC. Not everyone has iPhones or Androids and being able to use either my Windows phone or my gaming machine would be nice.
YCHTT - I've watched stuff on my PC laptop using just a web browser at Periscope.tv

They also are available on the Diplomacy Games Twitter account (unless they drop off after a period of time? Don't know that bit as we're new to this). I tried working out how to do via Facebook Live and couldn't fucking work it out.
Cool. I'll check it out again. I wasn't able to find a way to do it.

Apologies if subscribers the past couple of days got played eps automatically downloading. We did nothing, assume something screwy happened with our podcast host Podbean. I've logged a job with them. Let me know if you experienced the same or similar issue so I can take it up with them.
Podbean's confirmed they were changing their settings and some podcasts were subsequently redownloaded. They've changed their settings back. Sorry about that folks.

The Original Diplomacy Variant
As many of you know, the Calhamer estate is being liquidated and the very first self-published Diplomacy board sold for just over $5000 last week. Well, something else interesting from the same sale - a bunch of prototype maps, these likely being from several years before the game was published.

Minor map issues
Is anybody able to make minor cosmetic map changes to the variants, for readability? There's two small things I've noticed:

* Imperial Diplomacy II: there's a connection between Morocco and W. Med, but the map really doesn't show it.
* First Crusade: The Sardinia supply centre in the large map is placed in an odd, almost invisible spot.
