New to PlayDip! Could use some guidance

Hello All!

Found PlayDip over the last week or 2 - haven't played the game in years - happy to have this accessible!

Wondering - I require some rules on a 7 plyr version of chaos. This is a variant that I thought I was familiar with but apparently my confidence exceeds my knowledge base =)

Anyhow! Quick intro - older (but not that old), still have a copy of the board version from the 80's, live in Canada, looking forward to meeting you all in games!

My recommendation is to join a Mentor game. They are run by experienced players who introduce the playing interface & principles of Diplomacy. I had a long break from playing, mainly due to the challenge of getting 7 Dippers in a room simultaneously, when life is so busy. It was a great reintroduction to the game for me when I joined PlayDip.

Welcome, Ick!

On the Home Screen go to Guides / Game Options and I think you will find answer to your question. And as V said, you might want to start with a Mentor game.

Thanks for the reply gents! I did check out the rules, but those are specific to 34 player bout. I am in a 7 player match - have 4 SCs in fall including on original, 3 units, but not allowed to build. Sooo - I figure there's something missing (at least to me!!)

Hello Ick! Welcome!

What country are you in that match?
