Canton isn't eight-player, and it isn't particularly well-balanced either.

It needed to be 8-player becuase there is only one Australia map.

Ok all, the games will begin soon!

I will start them up on Monday afternoon (AUS time), and then PM you with the join code and game you're in.

Applications are still open, and will remain as such until the games start. If you were on the list, but couldn't make it into the games due to numbers (needs a multiple of 8), I will tell you.

I bid you all the best of luck!
Sounds good to me, I'm looking forward to it starting.

The game is up now and post of you should have received the code (I know there was a spelling error in that message, it doesn't matter). Some of you haven't yet, it is coming, I just need to sort a few things out first.

Good luck!

As our tour continues, we move east, to the continent (and country) of Australia.

It's the smallest of the continents, but is the largest island in the world (it's where I live too). Some people consider the continent to also include New Zealand, Indonesia, and some pacific islands, but that's up to you. It's a lot less diverse than Africa, especially if you consider it only the island. Once home to home to hundreds of indigenous tribes, this map puts us right before the federation, when tensions are heating.

The game can be viewed here:
gameID=41594

Bets of luck!

Variant development questions (Scottish_Clan_Wars)
Hi, I've looked at Spain in the classic map, and there are three territories: Spain, Spain (NC), and Spain (SC). The first has only land-links and the latter two have only sea/boat-links. I've recreated this in my map, but I don't think it's formatting the same as Spain in the classic map. How do I make a North/South coast divide?

Saga of the Nine (r2) Recruiting (Discord game)
Last year, we held the first playtest of new variant "Saga of the Nine" on Discord, using the PlayDip forums as a permanent hosting site. "Saga of the Nine" is an alt-history alt-geography variant for nine players based loosely on Norse mythology.

My co-designer, Aeschines, is running round two, and we're recruiting for it now. Details to follow in this thread.

Adjacency Championship
I'm interested in finding what territory has the most adjacencies in all of Vdip. Why? For fun.
If you find a new winner, please type in the Variant's name, the territory name, and it's terr-ID (this makes it easier to find).

Mongolian Empire
Just to nip this in the bud, this should be 100 years later than the start time (1320 start NOT 1230 start) and it should be 14th century on the map.

Other than that - looking forward to seeing how this plays out! :)
