    No this is silly, the whole premise is silly and very badly written. I'm the senior officer here and I've not had a funny line yet so I'm stopping it.

    Sounds good. I'd recommend people who haven't played before to at least review the game in progress thus far, if possible they should put their hand up to take over a bot for a couple of years to get a feel for the game mechanics.

    I'm really very sorry. I can't commit to the brainspace and the regularity. I do feel like I'm letting the side down, but I'll pass.

    I will be your most ardent supporter thougt!

    Sorry, rejoiners get back their old country, if still available. Your best bet is to be eliminated and then apply to come back.

    Got to admit, this really does seem complex, even after reading the instructions and some of the advice.

    For handy reference here is the rules summary from page 23 of the official handbook.

    22 rules to help you resolve orders

    1. All units have the same strength.

    2. There can only be one unit in a province at a time.

    3. Equal strength units trying to occupy the same province cause all those units to remain in their original provinces.

    4. A standoff does not dislodge a unit already in the province where the standoff took place.

    5. One unit not moving can stop a series of other units from moving.

    6. Units cannot trade places without the use of a convoy.

    7. Three or more units can rotate provinces during a turn provided none directly trade places.

    8. A unit not ordered to move can be supported by a support order that only mentions its province.

    9. A unit ordered to move can only be supported by a support order that matches the move the unit is trying to make.

    10. A dislodged unit can still cause a standoff in a province different from the one that dislodged it.

    11. A dislodged unit, even with support, has no effect on the province that dislodged it.

    12. A country cannot dislodge or support the dislodgment of one of its own units, even if that dislodgment is unexpected.

    13. Support is cut if the unit giving support is attacked from any province except the one where support is being given.

    14. Support is cut if the supporting unit is dislodged.

    15. A unit being dislodged by one province can still cut support in another.

    16. An attack by a country on one of its own units does not cut support.

    17. A dislodgment of a fleet necessary to a convoy causes that convoy to fail.

    18. A convoy that causes the convoyed army to standoff at its destination results in that army remaining in its original province.

    19. Two units can exchange places if either or both are convoyed. (This is the exception to Rule 6.)

    20. An army convoyed using alternate convoy orders reaches its destination as long as at least one convoy route remains open.

    21. A convoyed army does not cut the support of a unit supporting an attack agasint one of the fleets necessary for the army to convoy. (This supersedes Rule 13.)

    22. An army with at least one successful convoy route will cut the support given by a unit in the destination province that is supporting an attack on a fleet in an alternate route in that convoy. (This supersedes Rule 21.)[/QUOTE]

    Not really gg just have a look at the game running now to see how the moves work.

    C'mon put your name down for the next all player game.

    Online Diplomacy

    Probably the best site for online Diplomacy is the Diplomatic Pouch: http://www.diplom.org/index.py

    There are many others including...
    http://www.redscape.com/
    http://www.stabbeurfou.org/

    I am an experienced game master and can help players set up an online game on the dpjudge, if interested.

    Hi Thorin,

    I will try the online sites you suggest. There is no formal Diplomacy association in SA.
