Hi all,

 

Scraping for time to do a proper review just now, but I'll definitely have one for you all.  In the meantime, here's a fine example of what never to do in Diplomacy, courtesy of yours truly! Very Happy

Ross,
 
3 builds for Rumania.  I haven't heard much so far, do you think he's moving south at you or west at me? 
 
And what was ottoman doing?  Over here we're interested in the demise of Greece.  It's starting to look like several powers are going to divide him.
 
Any news?
 
Allen

Hi Allen,
 
Hopefully neither.  I'm working on him to go for Austria's back, though who knows what he'll do.  If he goes for you I'll try to assist as much as I can, but I think you're quite shielded by Austria and I to be a viable target.
I think Greg the Ottoman is looking towards Greece too, which is good for me.  The fewer powers that look my way, the better.
 
I'll be waiting until the builds come out before I make any hard decisions as to where I attack next, but I'm leaving options open by building a fleet and an army
 
How about with you?  You may want to beware, as I heard one rumour suggesting Italy and Austria were going to team up on you, though I can't remember the source or verify it in any way.
 
Ross

Well, that's embarrassing, I thought you were Serbia for a minute there. Razz
 
Diplomatic rule #1 - make sure you know who you're talking to.
 
You'll be happy to note that I'm in fact not urging Rumania to go for you - in fact, I'm hoping he'll attack the Ottomans with me, but since Serbia is hoping to carve up Greece with him, it wouldn't have been particularly diplomatic of me to say so.  You were just the only other plausible target I could put in there.
 
While you might not be so happy about the reported rumour - which I did make clear was just a rumour - my passing it on shouldn't come as a surprise.  If Serbia falls, I start to look vulnerable to attacks from behind (unless I was the one the make him fall!).  Could I urge you to reconsider, if it is true, and to attack Italy with Serbia?
 
Ross
 
(Bulgaria Very Happy)
 

 

 

Ross,

 
In your position I'd be suggesting to Rumania that I'm vulnerable.  No offense taken.  Just got a good laugh about it.  you know, Garry's suggesting a central alliance, what's your interest there?

In AD 1867, war was beginning...
*EXPLOSION*
Greeks: What happen ?
Ottomans: Somebody set us up the bomb.
Ottomans: We get signal.
Greeks: What !
Ottomans: Main screen turn on.
Greeks: It's you !!
BRS: How are you gentlemen !!
BRS: All your base are belong to us.
BRS: You are on the way to destruction.
Greeks: What you say !!
BRS: You have no chance to survive make your time.
BRS: HA HA HA HA ....
Greeks: Take off every zig !!
Greeks: You know what you doing.
Greeks: Move zig.
Greeks: For great justice.

Well - folks - I *think* this game is over? I received so many public
annoucements of draw votes and political campaigning, many of which
requested to be official and final - I can barely make sense of it
all. I *do* believe that everyone voted in favor of the 3-way BRS
draw.

***IF THIS IS NOT THE CASE - and I made a mistake confusing public
propaganda with official votes - please read no further and email me
immediately (forwarding me your evidence)***

Otherwise...speaking of for great justice - by virtue of the fact that
this occurred in Fall 1867, we actually have no eliminations in this
game. The Ottomans and Austrians would have been eliminated by their
disbands this winter, but well, fall ain't winter. So the Greeks,
Ottomans, Austrians, and Italians will be credited with survival, and
the Bulgarians, Serbians, and Romanians share in a 3-way draw.

***I would VERY VERY MUCH appreciate your EOG statements, especially
with constructive criticism of how the variant could be improved. I
have saved many of your notes from throughout the game, and would like
to specifically raise the issues of improving the Austria/Serbia
alliance option, and a discussion of the northern coast of Turkey
(needs redraw, or no?) Plus of course anything else you feel needs
work. And if you have anything nice to say about the variant, good
publicity is always appreciated too Smile***

PLAYERS:

ITALY: Adam Levy
AUSTRIA-HUNGARY: Allen York
SERBIA: Garry Bledsoe
GREECE: Nigel Phillips
ROMANIA: Mike Sims
BULGARIA: Ross Webb
OTTOMAN EMPIRE: Gregory Bim-Merle

Here then is the final adjudication. Assuming I have interpreted the
draw votes correctly, I thank you all for a very smooth and easy game
to GM, and for our survivors for fighting to the very end. It pleases
me greatly to see you rewarded with survival points rather than
elimination.

Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
