Am I the only one that feels like a complete dick after stabbing someone for an 18th center when you know you'd be stuck in a four or five way draw without their help?

No, the stabbie should feel like a dick for letting you get 18.

Stab away. This isba game about winning. If your ally is stupid enough to leave himself exposed then good for you and stupid bad for him.

If you don't stab him then he will end up believing that what he did was good play, and will do it again. In ten years time, when the game is popular across the world and there are multi-million dollar tournaments televised every few months, this same player will do the same thing, get stabbed, and lose a fortune. I'll be damned if I'll have that on my conscience!

There is some trouble wth cash tournaments, which have been thought about... Unfortunately diplomacy isn't poker, (though betting on how well you will do makes for a nice variant) and i don't think it ever will be (sorry to shatter your dreams there...)

That said if people are interested in running a cash tournament i'm interested in finding out relevant details!

It's the game's objective, as per rulebook lol,
maybe you've seen too many draws around here lol

The only trouble with cash tournaments is that they don't exist. They would be easy enough to run, though, along similar lines to The Masters perhaps. Everyone pays in x, and the tournament winner claims half of the pot, with the other half divided equally between those who soloed (those who solo twice get two shares etc etc, obviously).
You should never feel bad for a stab that results in your solo. If the solo was there to be had, it's the stabee's fault for allowing that situation to exist.
You shouldn't feel bad about it. I certainly don't when I have the opportunity.

Can the USA and Quebec work together and win the world game?
Could it be where these two close countries work toghether to win? Or does one need to stab the other. Can they be allies? Or is one certan to be stabbed?

I need some help
My mom had a cerebral aneurysm rupture 3 days ago, and she's in the hospital right now in critical condition. I'm staying with my dad right now. I'm wondering if any of you on here have gone through this or had a family member go through this and could offer me some advice on how to handle this.

I need a mod..
In September, gameID=97171 was paused, and has never been restarted. Most of the players involved haven't logged in for months, so can a mod please force a draw?
