Just in case anyone wants to watch, it's a team game, but every two years the teams change. Should be fun. Watch if you wanna. :

Hey guys! Time for another Black Press Game! :
- Best Board Game Version of Diplomacy?
I'm thinking about buying a physical Diplomacy board, especially since I'll be working with middle schoolers a lot next year, so I was wondering whether anyone had a preference? :

- Favorite Words
My favorite English word is "sleeping dictionary." It means, "a foreign woman with whom a man has a sexual relationship and from whom he learns her language." What are your favorite words? :
- Your Ideal Woman, Man, &c.
How would you describe your perfect partner? :
- Greed in Diplomacy
What's the right amount of greed in a Diplomacy game? Is cooperation or competition the path to victory? Does a rising tide raise all ships, or is anyone else's gain your loss? :
- CD England Available
- 3 SC England available
Big pot WTA game. Looks like it might go to a draw after a few more countries leave. Check it out. We need a new England. :
- Best Player on Site!
I figured we should have more optimism, so who do you think is a really great player, either skillwise or in terms of personality? I played a game a while back with irule, and she was a great ally all game. I heartily recommend her for as a Juggernaut partner. :

- International Language?
It came up in the other thread, so I'd like to know. What's your vote for world international language? And give reasons.
PS: "Everyone" does NOT, in fact, know English. :
Since we discuss religion anyway, I thought I'd share the principles of Homaranism (Esperanto for "Member of Humanity"-ism), which I recently came across to see what people think about it. :
- Invading Neutrals
Is it detrimental to invade neutral territories you don't need to? Is the psychological impact of a huge swatch of one color on the map enough to create enemies, do you think? Or do people only look at SCs? :
- After Action Report!
http://www.webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=20990 I was pretty much resigned to a draw as Germany, since I couldn't win without someone helping me, but I was wondering: can anyone see a good way for Germany (Or Italy) to have won this game? :
- Example Game
Since there have been posts about it lately, here's a game that A) features a gamelong NAP in gunboat between Germany and France, and B) has a winning country that never received a support move from another country. Fun game! :

So you're in a Diplomacy game. Too weak to do anything, don't want to attract the attention of the superpowers, what do you do? :

and gunboat game: http://www.webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=22549
With the Ancient Mediterranean Map, if anyone wants to try it out with me. :
- New Order Request for the World Map
In addition to Draw, Pause, and Cancel, can we please have a little order button that says something like Finalize your Damn Moves, This is a Gunboat Game and You Have No Reason to Not Finalize! ? I think it'd really improve the game for everyone. :
- 16 SC Libya gone CD
Join if you want to help. We just lost our biggest player to CD. :

- Who says live games can't be awesome?
Just finished a pretty intense live game. Went all the way to the end of 1917, a personal record for me. So many ups and downs. He who was high fell and he who was low came to victory. Pretty fun. Check it out if you're interested. :
- CD Germany, 3 SC, live game
- Interesting Game-Testicle Festival
Just finished this game and thought it might interest people. Italy ended up with a pretty good stalemate line against England and France, but with enough free SCs within the line to win. It became a race between Italy trying to gobble up the last few SCs before England and France could break through. :
- Possible Esperanto Game
Hey, I was wondering whether there were enough Esperantists on the site for a game in Esperanto? I've started learning it myself lately, and Diplomacy would be a good chance to use vocabulary I don't otherwise use, like, "Let us crush Turkey beneath our jackboots!" If there are enough people, I'll start a game. Anyone up for it? :
- 5 SC France available for takeover
France just went CD. It's a low cost game, and the position is actually pretty decent. France could easily gain some SCs from its distracted neighbors right now. If you like to take over CDs, give it a try! :
- Open Germany, 5 SC, Wilson Game
Germany has 5 SCs in our game but has CD'd. It's not a terrible position, and we could use a new Germany. If anyone's interested, please join. :
- Metagaming Suspicions
What's the proper procedure to inform the mods about metagaming suspicions I have? :
- Live Game
- Any Takers for a CD Russia?
Russia has CD'ed. Position isn't terrible, but it probably will become so if no one takes over. Lots of diplomatic freedom, though; can join up with pretty much anyone on the board easily right now. Any takers? :
- Live Game! Right now!

- Attention Mods-Live Game Problem
This live game crashed yesterday, and was restarted, paused, but with the same ten minute limit. Would it be possible to change the time limit to 24 hours? It'll be near impossible to get us all together again to finish a live game, and I know not everyone will even unpause. Thank you. :

- MODS PLEASE UNPAUSE
We need this game unpaused, please. :
- Could someone unpause this game, please?
The game is here: http://www.phpdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=9891
France is about to die as soon as the game unpaused. Our France was kicked out for some issue, and the new France hasn't unpaused and hasn't shown up again yet. :
