New Variant: Dawn of the Enlightenment
It is on a temporary homepage, http://davidecohen.wixsite.com/diplomiscellany, since I am having a bit of trouble editing my main website. Please take a look. I would love to get comments, suggestions and criticism.

A suggested change
It would be nice if eliminated players would be displayed in the order they were eliminated in, not alphabetically.

Cold War Tournament
I am looking to start a rated Cold War tournament consisting of group and knockout stages. Groups of 4 will face each other twice, once as each country. The top two (or three, pending interest) from each group will move on to the knockout stage, with each matchup lasting two games. Users will play as each country once. If tied 1-1, an additional two games are played until a winner is determined.

Hi, if I use countryswitch in a non anonymous game, will the temporary players ID be visible instead of mine? The question in another way: will the other players see that the owner is temporarily another player?

Soon on vDiplomacy: Canton Diplomacy
After trying three excruciatingly long games of Colonial Diplomacy and seeing its annoying lack of balance by myself, I decided to revive Paul Webb's 'Canton Diplomacy' from the depths of the internet. With Oli's help and blessing we'll be playing it quite soon!

Feature Request: Friends List
Similar to how the site already has functionality for muting and blocking other players, we should be able to add them to a friends list so that tracking them down to send PMs is more convenient. It would also make hosting games with players you know you enjoy playing with much easier. I don’t believe that this feature is currently in the issue tracker, and it seems like it would be very easy to implement given the current muting and blocking features already in place.

New Variant: Manifest Destiny III
Hail diplomats,

Yet another variant is coming: Manifest Destiny III. It's set in North America during the conquest of the Wild West.
Enriador (1451 D (B))

The original was done by Morg. It's a simpler version yet one that offers excellent opportunity for intrigue, diplomacy and backstabbing!

P.S.: It starts in Spring 1841, it's Build Anywhere, and victory is by taking half the centers of the board.

Im not a critic,but spain/cuba seems pretty damn underpowered.The only scs it can get in the first year are Flo and CAm.Usa can easily take Flo and mexico has a chance of bouncing CAm even if cuba gets two units there.Mexico also gets just one guaranteed sc,but it at least has an easier way to get to new scs.

@Nuclear Surok, thanks for your feedback!

Did you notice Spain's Fleet Mid-Pacific Ocean? Spain can make a supported attack on Florida, or Central American, or gun for both, all the while using F MPO to take a number of safe neutrals in the Pacific coast....

Two little things I forgot about 'Manifest Destiny':

2) The IA_smallmap.png file was done and ready (it allows the Interactive Map feature), but I forgot to upload due to some strange mystery. Here it is: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mwalwcla7ycwkp7/IA_smallmap.png?dl=0

Is it just me or is anyone else troubled that you can only play as white people in this variant about a violent conquest over indigenous peoples?

Personally, I am troubled that in Classic I can only play as white bourgeois and make a violent slaughter and explotation of the working class, while completely ignoring the Russian Revolution.

Goddamn variant creators.
Enriador (1451 D (B))

I guess the Atlantic variant also ignores both the genocide of Native-Americans and the brutal butchery that the Atlantic slave trade represented.

Oh well...

PLEASE use a different colour for Britain here and Austria in Edwardian - it is impossible to see movement arrows AND make the unit colour different... picking them out is difficult ... especially with strong primary colour. I'm having to refer to the typed orders !
Enriador (1451 D (B))
30 Apr 18 UTC
Thanks for pointing it out @Chumbles, we will work on it right away!

'Edwardian's unit icons look better on big map. The small map exists just for existence's sake, as it's far too small and there are far too many small spaces around.

30 Apr 18 UTC
(It will may take a while to upload the new colors. Meanwhile, if you really dislike the old color please use Big Map as your reference as much as possible)
That's not where Ottawa belongs. Maybe call it Thunder bay or something local.
Britain starts out slow if it doesn't attack the US, kinda suggestive yet perhaps historically based.
Enriador (1451 D (B))
05 May 18 UTC
Well observed @Kingmaker. Ottawa is where Toronto is right now.

I am not a specialist of Canadian geography, so if anyone has any suggestions I would be thankful.
Like I said Thunder Bay. It's on the N W coasts of Lake Superior right near where your dot currently is. I am born in Ontario and raised in Alberta.
Enriador (1451 D (B))
06 May 18 UTC
Thunder Bay didn't exist in 1841, it was a 1970 merger of two twin cities, Fort Williams and Port Arthur.

The area covering both cities was informally known as "Lakehead", so perhaps that's better?
Enriador (1451 D (B))
06 May 18 UTC
The bay was calles Thunder Bay though. So perhaps it would fit after all.

Lakehead can be "LAK", Thunder Bay "THU". I think I like the latter better. What do you Canadian folk think?


I like names that are valid for now as well as the time period of the game. That's more educational about geography.


I can't see the yellow support arrows over a yellow country like US.
Enriador (1451 D (B))
11 May 18 UTC
We will overhaul the color schemes to avoid this problem. Meanwhile, rely on the big map where it's easier to see the arrows.
tantrumizer (1434 D)
11 May 18 UTC
I'm enjoying this variant a lot. One thing though if you're changing colours (and sorry if I missed it above), but the dark blue US units are very difficult to see against the US territories' background. I got totally surprised by a US unit "hiding" in Florida some time back, because I thought the territory was empty.
Enriador (1451 D (B))
12 May 18 UTC
It's an annoying shade of blue, that's for sure. Thanks for the feedback!

Imbalanced map?
It seems as if several maps need some balancing work. For example, England* v Turkey is skewed toward England, and in Rinascimento, the French are virtually at the hands of other players’ wills.
