Re: Should you ever *not* take Galicia in 1901S?

I've not bounced Gal a few times playing as Russia if I have good relationships with both Italy and Turkey. By agreeing to a Gal bounce you can be relatively confident in Austria's moves being to Gal, Serbia, and Albania which when tipped off to Italy allows him to walk right into Trieste with Rome...

Re: Rage Against The Machine

4 games against the bots: 1st: Russia, 1 Center (Rome) 3-way draw R/G/T. Messed up orders in a stab on T in both S and A of 1908.

AAR/EOG - Newbie Grind

This was my first game on this site - I like a lot of the features compared to the older version of phpDiplomacy that runs on Facebook. I probably shouldn't have joined a 24-hour turn length game, but oh well. I've played a score of games online through FB (all classic, a mix of normal & gunboat), o...

Re: After Action / End-of-Game reports

OK, I'll start there. Another site (playdiplomacy.com ?) has a specific sub-forum under the Strategy section so I wanted to check and see if something similar existed here.

After Action / End-of-Game reports

Is there a specific place/section (or a recommended place/section) on this forum for AAR/EOG reports for games played on this site?
