Default Anybody play Diplomacy?

Anyone heard of it played Diplomacy before? I stumbled across it about a month ago and decided to give it a try. Itís a strategy game where the pieces and movements are very very basic, but the interaction between players is extremely delicate, open ended, and complex. Because the game is so intense it is apparently more popular as a mail-in/email game than one where people get together to play. It took about two weeks for the remaining number of needed players to sign up, and we just kicked it off last week. Iím already neck deep in lies and alliances, and we havenít even submitted orders for our first moves. We negotiate through the week via email then submit military orders at weekís end. The game master resolves all battles and announces results over the weekend. The process continues weekly until one nation is left standing. In my group we have 4 from the US, 1 South Korea, 1 from Canada, and 1 from Azerbaijan. Pretty cool.

The game takes place in pre-WWI Europe where 7 nations all compete for absolute domination of the area. There are only armies and fleets, and all are equal strength. Territories can only be captured, and defended, with the support of allies...and misdirecting enemies to focus elsewhere. Alliances are necessary but can be betrayed any moment and are of course completely unannounced.

Iím Turkey and have a supposed demilitarization agreement with Russia. However, one of the most common acts of treachery is for Russia to team with Austria and wipe Turkey off the map early. So, my problem is to decide whether to honor the agreement and push north to engage Austria or betray Russia in the first turn and hope that England and Austria turn on Russia in a greedy attempt to overpower it.

If you want to give it a try, the website is http://diplomaticcorp.com/

Once a game gets 7 players a volunteer game master will start the game and keep up with orders and results. I think it would be awesome if we could get a TBH game going, but it might be tricky to get enough interested.

To begin youíll spend more time studying how to play. If we got a TBH game going there would be a time advantage in that none of us know what weíre doing, so you wonít have to study all the moves your opponents expect you to play and how to defend against all the moves you should expect your opponents to make.

Iíve spent more time studying whether my country should align with Russia or attack them straight out. Iíve spent very little time on the negotiation and sending in my orders, so not time consuming at all.

It looks like we have 7 interested so Iíll contact the GM for the game Iím currently in and see if heíd run one for just TBH folks.

Ok, for those that are interested, the GM has agreed to run a game for us. I will PM everyone that said they are interested, but we can not not take the first 7 that sign up. You need to go on to www.diplomaticcorp.com and create a user name. Then sign up for game re003 “Game for the hunting crew”. Garry will be our GM and will get us started once everyone has signed up.

It took a while due to the agreed upon starting schedule, but the results of the first turn are posted. Russia honored its agreement with me, and I did the same. Austria and Italy are clearly working together against me, and Iím cornered somewhat. My next turn will be entirely focused on getting other countries to disrupt each other more so than gaining more of my own territory.

Morgan J. I’m Germany.

My uncle (dansbees) is Italy. I sent the request to a friend to finish the 7th spot. He set up a dummy acct and won’t tell me which country he is. That weasel! I guess we’ll figure it out by process of elimination.
