Diplomacy 3 - Gameplay

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.

Someone must be building a nuke, that's what is taking so long. I say we drop it on Berlin to test, you know, just because ;)

Allright - I am on board again and just need an answer to a question from England. As soon as I get that, the Spring moves will be official.
Thanks

Bah, you're all just afraid of the Russo-German Empire. And the nukes are only for personal use. I swear. :twisted:

Okay a few questions...

First Turkey's Army in Constantinople can't support the Fleet in Smyra, Smyra didn't hold, it supported an attack into Syria, two spaces away. What gives with that?

Second why did Austria loose her army in Syria.

Austria F(Syria) - Smyrna
France F(Eastern Mediterranean Sea) s AUSTRIAN F(Syria) - Smyrna

2 on 1

But then this happened...
Turkey A(Armenia) - Syria Move Succeeded
Turkey F(Smyrna) s A(Armenia) - Syria
A(Constantinople) s F(Smyrna) - This move should fail...
Rules wrote:A unit ordered to move can only be supported by a
support order that matches the move the unit is trying to
make. For example, an Army in Bohemia is ordered to
support an Army in Munich in its move to Silesia (A Boh S
A Mun–Sil). However, the Army in Munich is ordered
to move to Tyrolia instead (A Mun–Tyr). The support order
fails because the move it's supporting isn't the move that
was ordered. This support order doesn't become a support
order to hold.
So Smyria takes it 2 on 1, and Austria's unit should move into Smyria? If this isn't the case, then I think I've been playing this game wrong the whole time. Not sure why one set of the same orders would work and another wouldn't. Seems like to me Austria's unit should move, and Turkey's unit should move into that unoccupied space now.

Leaving Austria in Symra, Turkey in Syria and the Fleet in Symria disbanded.
