    Diplomacy

    anyone here play diplomacy? it's like the game Risk, except it's not a game of chance. it's all about diplomatic actions to keep your country safe while getting more territories (starts in spring 1901 and each turn is 1 season). so, anyone here have experience from it? i just started (we have a game going in my school) and im england. so far from the online helps i read the most threatening enemy is france (which actually one of my best friends...) so i don't know if i should go and attack him or not, because to attack france i need at least an alliance with germany.

    for more info and rules, go to http://www.diplomacy-archive.com

    Re: Diplomacy

    since you are england, i would suggest you make an alliance with germany and russia. get russia to attack bulkans to keep the turks from expanding since this is in the interest of russia, support germany's takeover of holland, leave belgium to france, or else france will compain. and try to take over norway and sweden since russia won't object... and then contest denmark with germany later on. if u give denmark to germany, then try to take portugal.. give france spain for now, because it will be easy to take if you have more fleets. also try to convince italy and austria-hungry to compete with russia and ottoman for bulkans.

    Re: Diplomacy

    so you've played it before? interesting idea. but what should i do with france? it seems to be the most dangerous enemy right now because all it has to do is to send a fleet in the english channel.

    well right now, i have an alliance with germany for sure, i have an alliance with italy for sure. im pretty sure russia and turkey will form alliance because they're friends (the players) and russia has invite me to join (haven't joined yet, because i see no reason other than to divide up scandinavian)... we (me, germany, italy) talked to france regarding an alliance and attack the eastern countries (austria, russia, turk) first, but i don't really like this alliance because france has to boarder with any of those countries so it will have to go over either german or italian territory just to get there. what i want is have germany and italy on my side and attack france immediately after the game starts, make DMZ on english channel with france, and somehow convince russia and turkey to attack austria (so they can fight their own little war).

    what's your opinion?

    Re: Diplomacy

    since you are england, it's NOT possible to form alliance with france, i tried before, and it didn't work... forming an DMZ in english channel works sometimes, but not always. if it works, YOU have to be the one to break the rules first and attack france first, the best is to ally with italy and take marsiele from the south, and let france take it back so you can attack northern france which is more important with germany together. scandinavia is very important, if you take it, it makes sure germany can't backstab you. since russia and turkey are friends, get them to compete with austria, tell russia that invading germany and scandinavia is no good, bc u can help germany to secure north, and turkey can't help russia in germany. but they can help each other in austria. it will be hard to finish france right away, but with 3 powers it could be done, just make sure germany don't backstab you. try to just take one of hte supplies in france, the important thing is spain and scandinavia. once those are taken, germany can't backstabe you and you can get in the mediterian without going through france, so later on you can attack italy from the south, which is easier.
