The green dots telling you that someone is currently logged on
I might be wrong about this but I have the feeling that those green dots also show up sometimes although the person is not online. Just had that in one of my games where there was a dot after the French, that was then gone some minutes afterwards. Still it says: last logged on some hours ago.
New game for anyone middle or old aged, with some sense of playing the game for the enjoyment of playing the game. High levels of dialogue and literacy, particularly with regard to correct punctuation, spelling, capitalisation and construction of complex sentences will be assumed.
The youth hero, the youth's foil/scoundrel/friend, the comic relief duo, the wise old mentor, the hero's protector, the strong female, and the hero's army, the hero's vehicle- from Star Wars, Trek, LOTR, THHGTTG, POTC- Cast your votes!
Just starting on PHP, though I've played on FB a bit. On FB, if you update but do not Finalize, the updates go through as your moves. Is that the case here? Looking forward to this site. Hope to see a lot less people bailing on games early.
This is the second time this has happened in this game. All my orders entered, it advances me forward with holds for all positions. Can a mod contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss?
We tried this once, but England left the game in Spring 01. So now we are trying again. Five of the six who joined that game have signed up, so that leaves two open spots. Looking for someone who won't go CD. Password and game ID inside.
It is a gunboat game so I am not sure if I can even post this, but I believe that there has been a error in the way that my moves have been processed. IT has happened twice (if I understand the rules correctly)
If somebody has to enter retreat orders but doesn't do so (e.g because he misses his turn or is in CD), what happens to the unit? There are several adjacent empty territories that the unit could theoretically retreat to. Thanks!
So, I am in a few games right now. It seems like in most of the games I am in, someone has stopped entering moves. In one game, someone just announced they were not going to enter anymore moves, because they suspected someone of meta-gaming. They said they had no proof at all, the game was just making them "uncomfortable". It happened after the game started turning against them.
hey everyone i'm just advertising a cool new map that everyone can start playing on. just go to dip.xbsd.kr to join a game. here is one you can join http://dip.xbsd.kr/games/398/
keep in mind this sight is the korean diplomacy. however you can change it to english when you sign up and you mostthe koreans speak english too. already some users on here have switched over to playing on dip.xbsd as well. other maps include south america ( 4 person and 5 person) classic, and fleet rome.
Yeah, I went to this site. The maps are cool and fun. AND, it has a nice gunboat feature if you like gunboat a lot. It makes all players in the gunboat game anonymous and allows only global chat eliminating the ability to talk to a country specifically so it is more like what a gunboat game should be.
The interesting thing about the south american and ancient mediterranean maps is there are no real central powers or corner powers. They are both big circles. One with land on the inside surrounded by water and the other the other way around.
I joined a couple of Ancient Med and South America games - the maps look interesting and are not so unbalanced actually - but obviously there's a learning curve until people get to understand the map better.
For South America - the map is brutal - small and you start fighting first turn already - the feeling is as if everyone is playing AUS :) Hence, results are random, luck will play a bigger role, and so will metagaming (a 2-way alliance can win the game in 3 turns if they are not caught). Brasil is really terrible to play (big like RUS, but with only 3 centers and positioned in the center)
For Ancient Med - the map is quite big (34 centers for 5 players, compared to 24 in the SA one) and allows for reasonable expansion even if you fight. Great map for people who love the tactical aspect of the game - movement, positioning and logistics are key for this one. I like it a lot :)
That site looks awesome. I'd love to play the ancient map sometime. Plus someone said it has speed games - If so I'll definitely play there sometime. My preference is for either really slow games (three days per turn) or really fast (15 minutes per turn). Of course this site is still the best.
Looks like they just added a Hundred Years War variant that takes 3 players. I'm limiting myself to just a few games these days so can't join, but thought I'd mention it. Would love to see what that map looks like.
gameID=12861 Last turn I (at least I thought I did) put in build orders for fleet in Brest and army in Paris. I should have 6 units now but I only have five, the Paris army never arrived. The orders archive only has the order to build a fleet in Brest listed. Now, this is my first game, so I'm in no way ruling out that I made a mistake but I didn't think the finalize option appeared unless there were valid orders entered? Maybe they're just having a glass of wine first...?
