Diplomacy 1: Learner Game

Diplomacy is a strategic board game. Its main distinction from most board wargames is negotiation: Players spend much of their time forming (and betraying) alliances with other players. Set in Europe just before the beginning of World War I , Diplomacy is played by seven players, each controlling the armed forces of a major European power.

Oh I see, the Alliance with Austira is over. The attack from the Poop Brown Nation into Russian territory, unprovoked, shows the integrity of Austria and the lack of character of their people. It is unfortunate that Brennor was unable to remain loyal to an alliance while enemies of that alliance still remain. Tsk Tsk. A test of his character proven to be greatly lacking.

Oh, I thought a fleet could go from sea to sea through Con.

You prove to be correct. Russia welcomes all Turkish refugees with open arms, and clothes pins onour noses.

Sorry you feel that way, V. I did warn you of the attack at least.

Consider the alliance terminated. It was going to happen shortly regardless. Australia will not be able to stand against the combined might of Italy and Russia.

I tell you, I will continue to NOT attack Austria. I made a pact, and I stick to them. Mother Russia is nothing if not loyal to their true friends and allies. It is unfortunate that you felt you had to raid my BMW factories in Berlin, we would have gladly given you as many free cars as you wanted.

I suggest you do not assume Italy and Russia would have attacked you. As once the Axis of Evil was dead, a three way victory rally was in order. Russia could share Europe, but Austira clearly could not.

(besides warning me after orders were sent in is not what I consider good conduct of an ally)

So what happens to Amari's builds? She has +2 this fall, but only 1 home town region. Does she simply loose the other build? That's harsh if so.

No, as there is only one home province free, she can only build one. She can build more next year.
