Re: 2020 Boston Massacre

The biggest challenge is that it's a lot easier on Backstabbr to forget to actually submit your orders. Online players should know to save a preliminary order set though, so that's more of an issue for the FTF crowd. There are enough FtF tournaments run with "drop dead" timing (i.e. if your moves a...

Memorial Day Weekend 2020, DixieCon went virtual. 80 players from all over the world played two rounds of Diplomacy, and Brandon Fogel, Siobhan Nolen, and I live streamed. Those streams were ~11 hours long, and we bounced between games; here is the commentary for one of those games, Catawbas, edited...

Glad you're enjoying it! There's nothing Vienna does for you holding, that you can't accomplish by moving somewhere. Want to defend Trieste? Move there. Want to have leverage on Rumania, move to Gal or Bud. Want to make a massive mistake and roll up on Germany? Move to Boh. All (well, not Bohemia) b...
