Time to restore and rejuvenate McHammer
McHammer has no control of his finances. He confided to Slypups that his bill payments would be so far in the future that they'd never happen, but then CAPT Brad go wind of this and got pissed. Come on hammer/guy -- you got 1 music video! Make it happen!

Google says: "The Punic language, also called Carthaginian or Phoenicio-Punic, is an extinct variety of the Phoenician language, a Canaanite language of the Semitic family."

Kench is right - that might be difficult to figure out :-)

The global chat in this game is hillarious. For a German like myself, whatever Austria has..."translated" is a real treat.

Man, I'm on a diet of no new games that I don't expect to be over by 8/1 unless they have a long clock because of a forthcoming vacation, but I would have been seriously tempted by this. It looks like a lot of fun.

A number of Google Translate games have been played over at vDip and was covered off in one of our earlier episodes. I'd recommend checking the show notes and fast forwarding to the relevant section on Kaner and my experience with Google Translate Dip games. See http://diplomacygames.com/diplomacy-games-podcast-episode-4-shownotes-world-war-iv-google-translate-diplomacy/. You can also download from iTunes or Stitcher.

They're a lot of fun, and would be keen to be involved.

The hilarity of the game comes down a lot to the rules you set for translating; the vDip rules tend to make it a little easier to get proper translations. The other critical part if the player's take on things eg are they playing to win, or are they playing for entertainment.

If more players are more than willing to go for entertainment, instead of people saying (assume this is translated) "Damn, Germany just screwed me over. The little twerp" you instead put in words like "Fuck, Germany just fucked my ass and it feels like a red hot poker twirling around! The little cock sucker!"

Put both of those into Google Translate with whatever translation rules you have and I guarantee the result for number two will be far more entertaining.

Exxon fined for violating Russia sanctions
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-exxon-mobil-usa-ukraine-idUSKBN1A51UH

The Department of the Treasury just fined Exxon $2 million (that's right, million with an "M") for violating sanctions related to Russia's involvement in Ukraine. Why should Russia care about lifting sanctions if toothless enforcement is the alternative?

[STRATEGY] Ancient Med Variant
Hello everyone. I love the idea of the 5 player variant. But searching online I am unable to find strategy guides for EACH individual nation. It also seems Carthage has a good advantage over the others. Also Rome is just as bad as Italy in classic. Anyone have input?

Do Republicans think that Russia is good or bad?
There seems to be debate on the right about whether Russia is to be trusted or not. (The left is uniformly suspicious of Russia). I'm seeing Republican lawmakers being skeptical about Russia, but rightwing media seems fine with them.

End Russia Sanctions Now?
Tillerson has already said wrt the election meddling that it is time to move forward. Why not go all out and just get rid of sanctions altogether? At the least, couldn't Trump just turn a blind eye to violations of the sanctions (Magnitsky Act) and return the 2 spy compounds? Who's gonna stop him?
