Retreat into SCs

Hi all, It is my understanding that one can retreat into a supply centre during the retreats phase of an autumn turn (obviously provided there is no unit there, and that there wasn't a bounce in the centre that turn). Eg: After Spring, if we have Turkish A Bul Turkish F Bla Russian A Rum Austrian A ...

Re: Should players taking control of Civil Disorders be responsible for replicating the previous players play style/stra

No, new players are under no obligation to emulate the reign of their predecessors. (With the caveat that no players leaving is preferable), Civil Disorders represent extreme incompetence of a regime, the populace's immense dissatisfaction with said government, or the death of a vital figure. As suc...

Classic Chaos?

Hi all, I just discovered a mad map called 'Chaos' with 34 beginning positions. I haven't seen any maps in this mode in the months I've been here. I think the idea is hilarious and I really want to give it a shot! It's quite an ask, but I want to gather 33 other players to make it happen! (On the ot...

Re: Question about support

Is it valid to order, for example:

A Spa S A Mar
A Mar S A Spa


If so, does each effectively support the other in a hold action?

Re: Diplomacy Games are Like Onions, Layer 1: Politics

Hi there, I've just read your political analysis with enjoyment and I'm about to head keenly on to the Tactical. Before I do, however, I wanted to raise a small objection to the 'silent treatment'. Obviously, in the right situation, it works well in an online game. However, I'm a little bit purist a...

Interpreting orders

Hi all, As the most experienced player among many teenagers with next to no knowledge of the game (yet - we're working on it), it falls to me to read and perform the orders at the end of every turn during F2F games. I notice that this process is slow and confusing, but I'm not sure how to make it mo...

Slightly Strange Rule Question

Hi there all! Not sure if this is the right place for this, but here goes: Two units can't swap places, but can a fleet on a North/South coast move to an adjacent state, while an army moves from that state to the fleet's original position? Breath. Case in point: Is "F Bul(sc)-Con" and "A Con-Bul" va...

Re: Question about AI retreating

Attacking a player who left the game for missing phases is exactly what would happen if you attacked someone and they don't make moves. The army or fleet would be disbanded, and if they have more units than supply centers, a seemingly random (not sure how random) unit of theirs will be destroyed. I...

Re: Make sure you bounce in the Black Sea!

I suppose the real question is: How does Turkey win a game? Obviously it's quite doable, but with the threat of either Lepanto or being crushed by Russia, combined with starting in that awful corner, makes finding optimal first moves really tricky. Even Juggernaut doesn't prevent this, as Turkey wil...

Question re. Game Start

Hi everyone,

I've just started a game, and I have one other person joined up (and presumably more on the way). Do we decide which country we play as? If so, when (and how) do we choose this?

Thanks
