16 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Everyone should read the Intro to Diplomacy under help above for basic information on moves, etc.
And since this isn't explained in those rules.
After the Fall move and the subsequent Retreat Phase, and before the next year begins, a tally is made of the total number of supply centers controlled by each Power. A Power controls a supply center if 1) it has a unit (army or fleet) occupying the province with that supply center or 2) the province with the supply center is unoccupied and the Power was the last to occupy that province at the end of a year. Each supply center can support one military unit, so Powers that have gained supply centers over the course of the year can build new units. New units may be created at any of the player's unoccupied home supply centers, but only at these centers, and at most one unit per center. For this reason, no more than 3 new units per player can ever be created at a time (except in the case of Russia, which has 4 home supply centers).
On the other hand, if a Power has more units than supply centers at the end of the year, then it must disband units of its choice until it has equal numbers of units and supply centers.
Powers may not choose to disband below the number of supply centers in their possession, for this would allow players to replace units in the field with new units back home instantaneously. For instance, a player who has more armies than necessary and wants a fleet in order to capture a far-away supply center cannot simply disband an army and build a new fleet on a home supply center.
16 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Pretty sure 5/7 of us here are confused and don't know what we're doing
16 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: You'll figure it out. This is one of those games that you learn best by playing
16 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Somebody needs to help Alex
16 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Alex is on video crew so he can't exactly pull out his phone.
16 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Since he's in the middle of the house and all
16 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: He told me back stage he had no idea what he is doing
18 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Why can't move this round???
18 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Only Katie has a move this round. Not entirely sure why.
18 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: She has to retreat one of her units
18 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Why are Katie and I not allowed to move again? Who's retreating
19 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Building phase.
19 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Yeah!
19 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: So the reason only some people can build is that you can only have as many units as you have supply centers, that's why you always want more.
19 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: aside from the whole, you need 18 supply centers to win thing
19 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: aside from the whole, you need 18 supply centers to win thing

19 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: sorry, no idea why my computer sent that 4 times....
20 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: can we talk about how no one has gone for Italy yet? That is literally free territory that all y'all are stupid not to be taking over
20 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: We divide it already
20 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1904: ah
20 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: why is nothing happening, is the game over or something?
21 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Someone avenge me. Frederick, I have let you down.
22 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Its been a good run, farewell guys! Thanks for destroying me Mark and Max
22 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Noo. Farewell Max/Katie!
23 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Mark - England - is one supply center from winning.
23 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Shhhhhh
23 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: No one needs to know
23 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1907: I think Mark wins this round
23 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1907: probably
23 Nov 14 UTC Everyone get him!
24 Nov 14 UTC Good Game everyone. Good job Mark!
