Re: The Case of the Fibonacci Sequence and Diplomacy

I don't know about all this +1 stuff, but the initial premise makes sense. Its the reason (partly) that russia tends to solo more oftenthan most nations. Start with 4, and our max gain is 4. Start with 3, and our max gain is 3. On an empty board with no interference, fibonacci would happen ... or ra...

Re: All Diplomacy Scoring Stinks
