Re: Does this English opening have a name?

The convoy option *is* hilarious, but if you know Denmark is going to be open and France isn't a threat, wouldn't it it better to put the fleet there? You have better options in the medium term, and retreating out of Denmark is probably more valuable than having the unit popped.

Re: Turkey gunboat opening options

My first question is a little pedantic so forgive me. You say in "70-80% of games" it's not the strongest opening. How do you know that you are in the 70-80% of games where it's not, vs the 20-30% of games where it is? More substantively--aren't you really trading off options against Russia for opt...

Re: Turkey gunboat opening options

I don’t like Ank-Con as the first move, because I think it (should) immediately band together Italy and Austria- and I don’t like forming alliances that don’t have me in them.

Re: Melbourne Open Diplomacy Tournament

@flash:

Sadly, Bill Brown passed away recently. Glasses were raised, and words were said. Goffy named the boards at the tournament in Bill's honour.

Tristan Lee is I believe not in the country anymore (he was around before I was, I never met him). Are you an Australian player?
