...I'm not entirely sure how this stunt's going to work with only five countries, I'll be honest. Unless we're also playing a variant map?

Chuckle - don't worry all will be clear soon.

I'm not answering anything else until I send the instructions out. Hopefully by then we will have a thread and I can set up the necessary domestics.

Ok we are live - all players will have PMs by now

The game can be viewed at http://www.playdiplomacy.com/game_play_details.php?game_id=31753

No more posts here please as I'll set up some more relevant threads

Good luck

I could not reply to your message - got an error report saying you had disabled private messages...

That game is the visible board for a forum game http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=325

Because there is a separation between those "Ruling" and ordering the troop movement it isn't possible for either to enter the moves. However I wanted to use the engine as this halves the work involved in moderation

So I checked out (Rick and Pedros) if I could set dummies up. What happens is:
The Rulers (one per country) tell the generals what to do
The Generals (who can units for multiple Rulers) send me the moves
I submit them all (in the various dummy accounts)
The Game engine does the stuff and we move on
