Germany is in a bit of a pickle…

More of a quagmire really…

Correct - they were the same image.

Oh man, Germany really porked the pooch there. I know we have newbs in this game, which is fine (and if anyone wants to PM me/post here about tactics-in general-I am willing to educate), but oh dear lord, to try to teleport 4 spaces across the map in one turn…

I found a .pdf of the official rules, for those who are still a bit foggy on them.

Germany might not be completely screwed. He’s got negotiation possibilities over Switzerland and Austria. But going NMR for F Hamburg – WTF?

I ordered my Army in Marseille to “Monte Carlo,” not “Monaco.” Good thing Italy went northeast.

Hold orders are cleaner but quite a few people I’ve played with before just don’t put in moves for holding units.

It’s hard to tell if moves far away are pro- or anti- any given country.

Diplomacy needs to introduce paratroopers in addition to fleets and armies. Would add a whole new dimension to the game…

The person playing as Germany SUCKS! :wink:

Fighting reported across Europe from Spain to the Caucasus, neutral territory falls under the sway of the great powers.

Really interesting to see how the east is turning out. Betrayals already - with quite a bit of forethought to them.

Germany had a triple self-bounce into Saxony? Talk about uber fail.

For my two Eurocents, I’d talk up an alliance to put Germany out of our misery.

Turkey has set itself up to be a major player in the east – this should lead into more exciting play than in standard Diplomacy.

I’ll comment further when I have a chance to review the map.

Is anyone else having trouble loading the results page?

It asks me to log in, but I’m not sure which “login” it wants (Youtube, Yahoo, or something else?)-in any event since it shot down my login info, I can’t see the maps. I can see the ones from last week tho just fine… :confused:

Even stranger-looks like I did register for Google itself awhile back-when I went to reset my password (which wasn’t working), the security question it asked me was in French (and given my password I know what I would have asked myself). :confused:

Just in case of difficulties, I’ll start keeping them in Flickr instead of Google Docs.
