Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

Congrats Xorxes and thanks ghug! I am happy with my 4th place, which matches exactly my placing in the 2015 Gunboat Tournament. For the next one, I would prefer the finals be a proper 7-game set. Although I wouldn't like my chances of winning a tournament like this, it was a big disadvantage to be m...

Re: Records of best gunboat games

This is the best Gunboat game I have been in. Finished in 1938 and full of twists and turns. http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=168977

Re: the dutch blitzkrieg

I use that opening about 90% of the time when playing Gunboat (with Mun-Ruh). I like it because it gives you a good chance of getting 6 in 1901, it gives Russia a nice warm feeling about you and you can still force Sweden if you want with a F Kie build in 1901.

Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

I qualified in the same position as in the 2015 tournament... 7th. Weird.

Thanks all for the games! And to Xorxes for keeping track. And to the tournament runners.

vDip has fixed it as far as I know. Why don't you just cooy that fix?
Yes, this was fixed 2-3 months ago on vDiplomacy. It is a key part of the rules and it was good to see there.

Re: The great beer debate

I lived in Germany and nearby for 10 years and I love beer. But American (craft) beers are certainly a lot better than German beers and are certainly the world's best. (Although I have to admit I don't like that Belgian-y taste that the Belgian and French beers have.) New Zealand also has a lot of g...

Re: Blind Diplomacy: Interesting Gamemode Idea

Fog of War on vdiplomacy.com is my favourite way of playing Diplomacy, especially Gunboat. They have implemented it very nicely there.

Re: Known World 901

Hi David... probably just a personal preference. I find 9-10 player variants the best mix of size and wieldiness; Aberration and Colonial 1885 being two of my favourites. Maybe it's also because I don't think I have done anything but fail spectacularly at KW 901 yet. :-) I'd like to have the transfo...

Re: Known World 901

They also have Western World 901 on vDiplomacy.com - it is similar, but smaller in map size and player numbers. I prefer it to Known World myself.

Re: (bi)annual WebDip Gunboat tournament?

A "noreveal" option would be cool for anonymous tournaments, but it should apply to all games until the round of 7 is complete. I would play in the upcoming tournament if it's a 7-game series, each player plays each power once. I wouldn't play any other configuration. In the absence of "noreveal" th...
