irregular burbling

Have at you!

November 4, 2003

I've been engaged in a play-by-email game of Diplomacy. Muttley, the chap running the game is currently changing jobs, so it's going pretty slowly by necessity at the moment but I'm really enjoying it rather a lot at the moment.

As you can see here, I'm playing Austria, which is the most exposed and vulnerable power on the board. As a result, I'm having to make all kinds of deals just to stop myself being squeezed out as Russia and Turkey drive into central Europe. The diplomatic aspect makes it even more fun than "Axis and Allies".

It's the first time I've played. They're going to whoop me, aren't they?

If I was you, I'd sign something semi-permanent with the nefarious Turks as Russia will start nibbling at you instead of Germany if you're not careful...this makes Germany a goner, of course. You're doing ok: you've got the whole of Italy to plunder. Getting the Turks on your side will let you do that in peace. Not that I've misspent hours of my life playing this game or anything.

I'm trying to. I have a non-agression pact with Germany and hopefully I should be able to keep La France out of Italy so that I can concentrate on bolstering my eastern front. I reckon with Turkey's help I can take Ruddia down or at least carve her up with Germany and the Turk.
