Who wants to play Intimate? - Slangers   (Sep 08, 2019, 4:23 am)
Game three of the tournament just needs one player to start, so sign up!

The first two games are very evenly matched, with England v France in game one, and Russia v Germany in game two.

Intimate is a great variant for 2 players. It moves fast, is well-balanced and a lot of fun.

The second game of the Intimate Diplomacy tournament is underway with APC91’s Germany confronting Garry.Bledsoe’s Russia across the Prussia/Silesia corridor. It should be a cracker, with lots of action in Scandinavia.

There are now only 3 places left if you want to sign up for the tournament. New member Arlp1832 awaits the next person to sign up for the third of the first round games.

Who wants to play! - Slangers   (Aug 26, 2019, 10:38 am)
I have a few things waiting in the Open Games list. I'm offering a game of standard Dip (6 more needed), Sail Ho! (4 needed) and an Intimate tournament (5 needed for the tourney, but just one to start the next game). Got that megalomaniac feeling? Sign up and play!

The first game of the Intimate tournament looks like being a cracker, with England against France. Who will prevail- the jolly Jack tars of the Royal Navy, or the gallant legionnaires?

The ID tournament is now recruiting at re010. We have our first competitor declared (Cartesian).

If this tournament is popular and successful, then we might consider something larger.

Variant Description
ID (Intimate Diplomacy) is a two-player variant. Each player controls one country (his "Home" country) for the entire game. The remaining five countries are known as "mercenaries".
1. The official rules of Diplomacy apply except where amended below.
2. To determine home countries, each player submits a preference list of seven countries. If their first choices are different, both players get their first choice. If their first choices are the same, but their second choices are different, then both players get their second choice. If the second choices are identical then each gets their third choice etc. If both preference lists are identical then the players draw lots with the winner getting their first choice and the loser their second choice.
3. Control of the five mercenary countries is determined each game year by bids. The bidding seasons occur before Spring 1901, and thereafter between each Winter and Spring season. Bids are written down and both players reveal them simultaneously. The highest bidder for each country has the size of their bid deducted from their reserve and gains control of that country for the following year --- including the winter adjustments.
4. Credits used for bidding are awarded following each Fall season. Each player is given one credit for each SC owned by his home country. (E.g., If your home country controls 10 SCs, 10 credits are added to your credit balance.) At the start of the game, countries have the following credit levels: E, F, R & T are given 20 credits, G 22, A & I 24. The difference in starting credits is to even out the relative strengths of the countries.
5. Players are permitted to bid more than their credit will cover. However, if a player's successfully bids more credits than they hold, they lose all their reserve and their opponent then gains control of all countries they bid for at half price, rounded up.
6. When bids for a country are equal, neither player controls it, and it is treated as if in Anarchy for the year.
7. Play is carried out exactly as in regular Diplomacy with each player submitting orders and retreats for the countries which they control. In the winter season, all builds due to neutral countries must be taken where they are possible. The sequence of play during one game-year is Bids, Spring moves and retreats, Autumn moves and retreats, Winter builds and disbandments.
8. Mercenary Builds: If the player controlling a Mercenary country fails to order builds which that country is due, the GM will builds armies alphabetically in home centres (fleets for England).
9. Victory Criterion: The game ends when one player occupies one of their opponents home centres with one of their home country's units in any season. If this happens to both players simultaneously, then the player occupying the most home SCs of his opponent wins, with the exception that occupying 4 Russian home centres counts as no better than owning 3. If a tie remains, the game is won by the player with the largest credit balance (counting credits won during the season in which the home centres were invaded). If a tie still remains, the game continues until the next Fall, when all of the above are reconsidered.
10. A game may develop into a stalemate situation once all neutral countries have been eliminated with neither player being able to break through a defensive line to meet the standard victory conditions. In this case the winner is the player with the most supply centres. Note that unlike Diplomacy, a game does not end just because one country reaches 18 Supply centres.

Intimate Diplomacy is a variant of standard Diplomacy for 2 players and is a lot of fun. It’s standard Dip, but without the diplomacy bit. I am running a mini-tournament for 8 players, which will be played over 3 rounds.

Quarter finals: GAME ONE, GAME TWO, GAME THREE, GAME FOUR
Semi finals: GAME FIVE (Winner of Game One vs Winner Game Two). GAME SIX (Winner of Game Three vs Winner Game Four)
Final: Winner of Game Five vs Winner of Game Six

My aim would be to keep the games running pretty quickly with Spring and Fall deadlines about a week apart and other rounds squeezed between.

If you are wanting to play, please sign up at game re010 under the Open Games tab. I will take your signing up to play as confirmation that you wish to proceed and will start the first 4 games as they fill.

Yes! Sail Ho! is recruiting now. It's a game for 4 and it's all about the convoy- nobody gets anywhere on an island based map without a little cooperation between the boots on the ground and the senior service.

Sign up for re003.

Each game is run by a GM, a live person who administers the game, including being a neutral person who adjudicates each turn (with the help of software).

You submit moves by emailing that person. I think, if I remember correctly, I am likely to be your next GM so you will do so by emailing me. A gamester email for re001 will come out soon.

Also, side note - GM's volunteer their time to run games because of their love for the game so please bear that in mind. The upside - each game gets a positive human touch.

Constructive critique - no judgement intended: Is there any way to get rid of the Open games that are abandoned? Keeping them makes this site look like no one is home and makes me have little confidence that the site is going to be here tomorrow. If I'm going to invest months of my time in a game, I don't want to waste my time if the site is going to disappear.

Haven is the BEST! - garry.bledsoe   (Feb 18, 2019, 8:02 pm)
All - we have been sitting at 7 players for the open re004 (aka HAVEN variant) for some time.

This is an amazing variant to play and well worth your time. I encourage you to join and try something completely different.

Of course I also have a soft spot for it because it is the brainchild of Sims, one of our Mods.

Join up now!
