New Game: Lecrae14 (14/14) - RESERVES WANTED

Postby attitudes » 08 Mar 2013, 21:16

New variant based on the following thread: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=413&t=34931. Now taking player signups.

Lecrae14 is a new variant for 14 players. The map has been modified from the Standard map and uses standard rules.

It will be 72/36/36 deadlines and nation selection by Blind Auction - so no discussion of what you favor.

Countries

Ankara - light blue
Athens - white
Berlin - gray
Brest - red
Brussels- orange
Bucharest - tan
Copenhagen - yellow
Dublin - dark blue
London - lime green
Madrid - magenta
Moscow - purple
Rome - dark green
Vienna - salmon
Zurich - violet

Rules

Standard Diplomacy rules are in affect unless otherwise noted. DVFG's standard House Rules are in effect unless otherwise noted in these House Rules.

There are 40 supply centers. You must control twenty-one (21) SC's for a solo win.

This is a build anywhere variant.

Deadlines

We are running a 72/36/36 game. I will allow 3 days for the first Winter season and 4 days for the first Spring season.

I will try to send out a reminder email with 24 hours to go. If you send in provisional orders early, I will not send you a reminder email.

I will also run speed deadlines for any season where all orders are in early. If you do not want me to use your orders for speed deadlines, put "Provisional" in the message, so I know that. I will treat all submitted orders as finalized unless you specifically say that they are not. You can change your orders any time up until I post results. Sometimes I will be a little late in adjudication, so you can even change/place orders after the deadline as long as I have not posted results. Keep in mind, I am usually very prompt in posting results at the stated deadline.

NMR's

If you NMR for the blind auction, I will remove you.

If you NMR for the first season, I will remove you.

If you NMR 2 turns in a row I will remove you. If you NMR 3 turns period I will remove you. I count NMR's for build and retreat phases the same as movement phases.

Please don't NMR, if you need out, let me know so I can try to find a sub.

Orders

Please send me orders with the following in the subject line. "Lecrae14 - Spring 01 - London". Those can go in any order, but I really need all three things, just so I can make sure I got all my orders and keep them separate from my other forum games. If you just want to ask a question, the subject should be "Lecrae14 - Question". This way, I can distinguish orders from questions and better be able to help you.

Draws

All draws must be made either on the most recent thread, or PM'd to me. They cannot be proposed until after the 5th build season. Draw proposals are only active during the season in which they are proposed.

Blind Auction

Countries will be decided by a blind auction. No player should say anything (publicly or privately) from this moment on which gives any indication of how they are thinking of bidding; any breach of this rule will result in the player being ruled out of the game. Each player has 280 points to bid. Maximum bid on any one country is 200. You must bid at least 1 for every country. Country choices are:

    Ankara - light blue
    Athens - white
    Berlin - gray
    Brest - red
    Brussels- orange
    Bucharest - tan
    Copenhagen - yellow
    Dublin - dark blue
    London - lime green
    Madrid - magenta
    Moscow - purple
    Rome - dark green
    Vienna - salmon
    Zurich - violet
Further clarification on blind auctions can be found at: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=148&t=20967

Questions

Any questions let me know either via PM or posting on any current thread.

Game will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis but the GM reserves the right to deny entrance to the game. Players that have a storied history of NMR's in previous DVFG's need not apply. New players to DVFG's are most welcome. Players that have previously posted interest from the games in development thread will be given priority.

I think this looks awesome, but how do builds work, and where can you build units?

Build anywhere. I will edit the OP.

I tried to adjust the colors of some of the countries. Looks like I will need to adjust Vienna again though. Too similar to Brussels when I look at the map now.

Awesomeness; looks like fun.
I'll have to think about whether or not I can make time for this game.

No Northern Ireland land bridge like the 1900 variant has?
