Hello everyone,

Please use this thread to post your best Diplomacy Resources. Links to strategies, video analysis of games, wiki's about the game or anything others may find useful. Every once in a while we will move all the resources into this main post to make this easy to read.

To come back to a scenario you've created, copy the Permalink to the right of the board.)

jmo1121109: Also, the "Repository of End Of Game discussions" link in your post is broken.

I also think that you should move the "Repository of End Of Game discussions" and "Swordsman's Journal (part 1)" up to the "Resources from WebDip" section.
