Database of Games?

Postby DirtyHarry » 05 Apr 2020, 23:29

All,

I've always wondered if there is a database of Diplomacy Games somewhere that show the final position of game. It would be nice to be able to look up German solo victories (as an example) and what the final map looked like.

Anyone know of such a thing? There are Archived games here on the site, but no way to search them by who the victors were, at least not that's exposed in UI.

Thanks,

DH

I am almost certain that such a thing exists, although I would have to imagine that the ability to search it is an admin-level privilege.

It would be interesting for anyone wishing to put the work in. That'd leave the option to do a true evidence-driven strategy.

So, since no one seems to know of a public database, I wonder then if there is possibly an API to the archived games database on this site?

Josh Burton did a couple nice articles on statistical analysis of judge games for the Dip Pouch. This one covered winning positions:
