My Diplomacy Page

I have had an interest in the game of Diplomacy for many years. I played on some of the electronic Judges in the early 1990's while doing my MSc in Atmospheric Physics at the University of Toronto. I don't know how I managed to get involved in it, but I typed in the Diplomacy A-Z and the Variants A-Z for Mark Nelson, also in the early 1990's. In March of 2000 I completed a large map for the Colonia-VIIB variant. Unfortunately, a lack of time due to work and a growing family has kept me away from "The Hobby" until recently (May 2002). This page is a result of my return (for what it's worth), as a replacement for China in the game (Sometimes I feel like) Fletcher Christian run in the zine The Abyssinian Prince.

Check out my test game of A Merry Mixup, and on the completed game of Harem Scarem!

February 24, 2008: Downfall XIII rules and maps have been added to my site. I took it upon myself to make a better map than was available. I also prettied-up the rules page.

Diplomacy Links

Not much to report on here, as the biggest and best place to go is the Diplomatic Pouch.

The Diplomacy Archive has a wealth of articles and other stuff about "The Hobby". Some of the people involved have been playing for a long time...

The Abyssinian Prince is one of the longest-running "szines", and issues starting from #190 are on the web at the above link. Game deadlines are every three weeks, and the szine comes out about every 3-4 weeks. Well worth the read!

(November 3, 2002): The long-awaited HTML version of the Diplomacy A-Z. Comments, updates and additions are needed and welcomed!
