A France vs Austria sandbox

#1 Post by teccles » Wed Mar 16, 2022 8:41 am

Sandboxes are great for planning out future turns and seeing where the game might go. Sadly, the only sandbox available is the one on backstabbr, which only handles Classic games. So, I played out a classic game to the France vs Austria starting point, for use in my scheming.

If you want to use this, you are welcome to. Make a copy before doing anything! It's a public sandbox, so if you edit this one a) it won't be usable by others and b) everyone can see what you are plotting.

Here it is: https://www.backstabbr.com/sandbox/FvA- ... 0278824960

Again, make a copy before editing! If someone else has failed to do that and that sandbox looks wrong, PM me; I have copies.

How did it take 12 years to set up the FvA position?

Doing it in four is not hard: https://www.backstabbr.com/sandbox/5108085713797120

I wonder if it can be done in three. My intuition leans towards yes.

I was not going for speed :)

However, your sandbox leaves something to be desired - you will have to order many no-builds for all the other powers. In mine, no power except France and Austria owns one of their home centres.

I hadn't spotted that you'd rigged it so nobody else had the right to build, which is quite elegant.

Backstabbr sandboxes can't be edited by anyone except their creator, so don't worry about this, people will have to make a copy anyway :D The only thing making it public does is allow other people to view it.

FWIW, I like to use this sandbox, which I found in the WebDip forum:
Politics Order Judge (web-based adjudicator; no download or installation needed): http://gamesbyemail.com/Games/Politics/Judge
(You can turn it into a sandbox when using a computer. To clear the map and build your own scenario, click the "Clear board" hyperlink under "Other:" and then drag and drop the units from the white box to wherever you want them. To come back to a scenario you've created, copy the Permalink to the right of the board.)

Put snacks on it. Folk will gather.
