Unpopular opinion thread
I saw this posted on another forum and it ended up being a great thread.

Post an unpopular opinion you have, and only comment if you (dis)agree under others - no arguing.

WWI year-by-year re-enactment game
Would anyone be interested in this? To be clear, I mean instead of playing, we figure out a blow-by-blow of WWI and then re-enact it phase by phase.

It's been far too long since we played this variant. Anyone for a game?
ghug (4232 D (B))

I'm in provided it's the 1991 Munich ruleset. The Melbourne convention that year was full of stuffy bureaucrats who were more concerned about rules than a fun game, and everything since has had issues with balance because people insist on accurately reflecting the fall of the Soviet Union.

I was actually planning on running the '71 rules with a few balance changes, but '91 isn't too much worse.

Munich Ruleset allows players to enter and leave the game as it's running, yes? In which case, I'll start us off with

Are we using the 1992 Greater Lakes Summit amendments?
captainmeme (489 D Mod)
09 Aug 17 UTC
Only outside of the Soviet area of the map. As Ghug said, a lot of the later amendments created huge balance issues around those provinces.

tbh, I think those are mostly because no one knows how to properly play Italy. Regardless, I'm happy to play an old school game. It's been a while!

Does that version allow reversals in the Caspian Sea?
captainmeme (489 D Mod)
09 Aug 17 UTC
Cas is inaccessible under the '91 rules. Unless there's something about it in the GLSA, you'd have to move via coast all the way to Kaz to achieve a reversal. Possible, but not really viable in a high level game.

Ezio - the furthest west you can begin the game is Havana, but the map extends significantly further than that. I think someone once reached Hawaii but due to the Proximity Negotiation rules we couldn't get in contact with him, so that was never confirmed.

I should also note - we are, of course, using the standard WebDip Amendment. Any order which receives five or more +1s is invalidated.

ghug's opening makes sense because by building in Zagreb he invokes the ghug Corollary, which states that any unit built while the player is high gets a +1 modifier to any foraging rolls but the player has a roll a 20 sided die and on a roll of 5 or less the army "forgets" to move.

I build F vDip.

HOW TO PLAY THIS
The instructions did not mention this scenario: If you attack a province that someone occupies, but that someone is moving their unit in that select province to a different province that is unoccupied, their move cancels and they have to defend their province which is being attacked right? I know this to be true based on my own experiences, but I wanted to confirm.

Private game replacement rules
I've been told by a deadbeat admin that is losing a private game that he has the ability to pick any replacement he wants and he asked someone who I'd rather slit my wrists than play with. There's a reason I play passworded games and I think there should be a rule where you need the consent of people in your private game before picking a replacement.
