Advertise your NON-live games here!
In an effort to compromise the pro-ads versus anti-ads for games: Post here for your non-live games to cut down on the number of ads but still advertise games. Post game link, WTA or PPSC, and the bet. Note: this doesn't count for special rules games.

Latest episode is out folks. And our first foray into the face-to-face world. No, Kaner and I aren't playing, we're talking with Chris Martin the tournament host for WorldDipCon 2018 in Washington DC. Plus we talk our recent games and get a bit too drunk... again. Listen at www.DiplomacyGames.com, iTunes, Stitcher etc.

BTW, if anyone listens on Google Play let me know if it works, I can't really tell at my end!

Another funny episode! Great job guys, props to Martin for a great rundown of the World Dip Con.

And who shall win the "valiant quest" towards the Holy Land? =O
Thanks Enriador. I will get to Outremer if the Lord wills it!

Chris Martin is a great guy, and an amazing Diplomacy player. Great job getting him as a guest, guys. If any of you are planning to come to Washington for the tournament, pet me know. I cannot promise to get as plowed as Amby and Kaner, but I can still knock down a few with the best of them.
Chug! Chug! Chug!
Do you remember what it was like when you first started playing Dip? This episode we interview face to face a brand new player who's new to both the game and vDip. It's a really interesting reminder of what we were all like when we started. As always grab it on iTunes, Stitcher & DiplomacyGames.com
Don't you just hate it when alcohol makes your brain forget things? I have this experience in the latest episode of the show (number 36), white talking sitters, KW901 tourney debates, current (and just finished games) & a chat about the variant Greek Diplomacy.

Should be slowly making its way out to iTunes & Stitcher, but available right now on DiplomacyGames.com
Slowly making its way out on the interwebs is episode 37 of the podcast... the first with Amby drinking beer.

We talk briefly growing luxuriant beards and do some bad jokes before we talk Dip: Great discussion on the perfect stab/review of the Hundred variant, how to decide what game to play, what should go into a Dip World article and the Munich Uber driver downstairs. Doesn’t get better than this.

Grab it at iTunes, Sticher, Google Play, DiplomacyGames.com and don't forget to hashtag #F*ckingIdiots to help kaner learn about Twitter.

Episode 37 was good fun to hear. The best line:

"Sengoku, I just die straight away" =P
FYI the article we talked about in episode 37 that Kaner was writing is now up in Diplomacy World’s latest edition.

Hi folks, just posted the interview and episode of the Diplomacy Games podcast with Andrew Goff, winner of the World Diplomacy Championships. Gain his insights about the value online players bring to face-to-face games on iTunes, Stitcher, http://diplomacygames.com/ and where all good podcasts are made available.

Hello everyone.

In the last podcast I said we'd get another one out before I head overseas.

Logistically with everything going on at the moment I can't see this happening. So apologies in advance, but the next podcast episode won't be out until early January.

Any interest in some WDC settings games that will end before Christmas? Set them to 1910 and its 49 days with 1 day turns. I quite enjoyed the EoG:12 game that I played earlier and it had a similar cutthroat dynamic.

WWII Tournament
I would like to start a tournament. I've seen the Known World and 1v1 tournaments, and those are great fun. So why not apply it to World War II? I'm still working out the details, but I'll post some details.

Kaner temporarily offline
Hi everyone - in case you're waiting on Kaner for any games etc, his internet connection at home has died and his ISP are being difficult. Not smart when his ISP contract ends in a week. So he's going to switch providers in a week and will unfortunately have to "go dark" from vDip for that period of time. But he will be back.

Meanwhile, more than 7 players have shown their interest to participate in it, but no consensus on the specific settings of the game has been reached yet.

Recruiting for Dissolution (Play by Slack/Discord/Email)
Next year, starting in Jan or Feb 2019, I will GM a game of Dissolution, a 10-player Diplomacy variant* of my own creation. Dissolution is set in the 1990's, just after the breakup of the Soviet Union. This game is not a vDiplomacy site game; it will be played with most communication handled via IM (either Slack or Discord), with some email too.

More details below.

Smelly stand-ins/replacements
We have a situation, a 'metagaming' tactic which thoroughly distorts gunboat games' outcomes. Replacement players don't have to have the same RRas the game originally required. Thus we can get a replacement whose sole purpose is to recover their own RR by suiciding - moving their own units out of their centres in so another player can move in entirely uncontested.

Workaround to "forced" ready
In rulebook press, part of the idea is that for retreat and builds it forces you to ready up. However, simply by then pressing "not ready", the order changes to "saved". Is it possible to promote the original idea of this press type by making the state of "not ready" equal to "no orders received"?

Can't build in a free SC?
I'm playing World War II and I've got 2 SC's free for example, but I can only build in one of them, I think it might have something to do with units bounced on the other SC in Autumn? Is this some rule somewhere that I've missed or an error?

Hidden orders?
I'm recently back from a year and a half hiatus, and have noticed for a while that for anonymous games it no longer shows who has saved their orders, readied, or not entered orders yet. I can understand why this was done (I've exploited the old system extensively), just curious at to when this change was made, whether there was any discussion on the potential change, and why I haven't seen any information on the change in the rules/feature sections?

IA map issue with English Channel
In the variant World War II, I never seem to be able to move to the English Channel using the IA interface, when I press the space it simply says something about the North Sea being not adjacent to the original position of the unit. It's never came up with any other location. Is this a common issue, or is it just me (I'll message the mods either way, just to get a sense of what might be going on here)?

What's the point in muting a nation in non-anon if the mods will let the player PM you?
A player PMed me after I muted his nation and the mods said it's not against the rules. It would seem to me to violate the intent of the press rules if not the letter. I have since muted the player for the rest of the game but that was not my desire.

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.
