Tiger King themed game
Hi folks - started a new game that I'm keen to get people's thoughts on...

So I've already created a game at https://www.vdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=44419, but its gunboat and if people think press would work better with the concept, I'll create another one.

Played on a Divided States board where players are randomly allocated it is like a normal game BUT needs a little blessing from above (the Mods) to allocate bonus vDip points at the end if any of the named players achieve their special goal:

Oklahoma (The Tiger King) - survive the game holding OKC and ARD (I think the location of the GW Zoo borders both of these territories on the Divided States map) AND also own TAM in Florida so you successfully take over Carole Baskins' Big Cat Rescue. Bonus points if at some stage during the game you successfully own Los Angeles (so you can burn down Rick Kirkham's studio)
Florida (Carole Baskins) - same in reverse,survive the game holding TAM in Florida (Big Cat Rescue) and take over OKC and ARD (the GW Zoo)
Nevada (Jeff Lowe) - survive the game holding Las Vegas (LV) and take over OKC and ARD (the GW Zoo)
South Carolina (Doc Antle) - survive the game holding MYR (Myrtle Beach Safari) and take over TAM (Big Cat Rescue). Bonus points if you manage to somehow sleep with at least 3 players of the opposite sex in the game
California (Rick Kirkham) - yeah I know Rick is from Oklahoma City, but that is Joe's country to play, so as he was a Hollywood producer I'm giving him California. His points conditions is to ensure Los Angeles (the studio) never falls to Joe, he survives the game and he or another Tiger King playing player eliminates Joe from the board

Open to other ideas that are in keeping with the show's theme.

Who's with me? Any mods open to allocating bonus points if any of the conditions are met?
Late suggestion: If Joe Exotic/Tiger King/Oklahoma takes Washington DC (his Presidential run) he also gets bonus points at the end.

Maybe this game would work best as unrated so other players can jump in and assist with where things go, knowing that only players who are playing the Tiger King sub-game get special Mod points at the end.

I went to sign up but was sad to see it was gunboat. This game cries out for some sort of press (public or full) presumably all in full and glorious character.

I think you're right Scuba. I set up the game, then realised typing the forum message that press would be better. Happy to start another game if there's enough interest.

Also as its a bit of fun, maybe it needs to be unrated. That would also help with Dave's suggestion about nmr's.

Need some help with understanding the 'extends due to missed turns' mechanism
Hi All!

So, I have a turn I just missed (I'm a bad person). What surprised me is that the turn processed with all of my units having "hold" orders.

Black Lives Matter
I saw that WebDip has put a little header on their website in support of Black Lives Matter and the protests in the United States. I thought it was a really good way to use their platform for good and I was wondering if Vdip could do something similar?

What is a "turn"?
I was just wondering what counts as a turn, for example for "extend the first X turns". Is "Spring 1901" a turn, or does it count all phases, or does it count the movement and build phases but not retreat?

Suggestion: Close chat option
On large variants, having lots of chats open makes the mobile interface quite cumbersome. It'd be nice if we could close chats, or if chats with dead people closed automatically.

New Concept: Squadrons
This is just an idea I had: What if there were squadrons (a group of planes) in vDip?
They would be able to go on both land and sea territories, but of course there's a catch, or they would be OP.
The catch: They would not be able to capture territories.
Any thoughts?
