this may sound like a dumb question - but can you run a private classic game with 3 or 4 players?

They don’t have the variant on this site that I know of. When I played with some of my friends we had to get all seven

No, as we do not have maps for 3 or 4 players. You may be able to do this on vdiplomacy.net with the right type of map, though.

It is a separate site. Runs off the same code (largely), which is why it looks the same, but accounts aren't shared across both.

Thanks ghug - I figured as much but I didn't want to make a problem for myself. The same font kinda made me think twice!!
