Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 30&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.
Posts which break these rules will be subject to editing or removal; see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 13&t=42845

In the newest version of the board game, which I own, there is a canal from Hel-Bal. I just tried this move in my first game on this site and it did not work. I just want to know if that is legal in some games or not legal in most games or what. I just want some clarification. Thanks

I assume you mean hegoland and Belgium?

No they should not be linked, and were not anyway in the original. So no, its not possible on this site.

Hope this is what you mean

Kiel is special in the way, that you can move HEL-KIE and then KIE-BAL, which saves you a step or two from going though DEN or SKA.
But you can't go from HEL to BAL directly. You have to stop in KIE too.
