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.

Realpolitik

Postby egrai057 » 25 May 2008, 16:13

I wasn't sure where the best place to post this was, but this seems as good a place as any. Back in the day when my friends and I played diplomacy alot, I had a simulator similar to realpolitik that didn't require you to have the game to run it. It was useful for solving crazy stuff like convoys breaking support of a supported hold and other random monkey business because we had lost the rule book ages before. Anyone have any idea what I was using?

What do you mean with "that didn't require you to have the game to run it"?

I use Realpolitik, and it doesn't require anything but 5 MB of hard drive space.

I believe you needed the actual Diplomacy game in the original Realpolitik...don't know how it is now.

Right now, I would strongly recommend using jDip as a tester. It is a lot better than Realpolitik in my opinion.

Most Diplomacy simulators require that you own the board game in order to legally use them. I haven't heard of any reinforcement, but it's still a requirement legally.
