Spring 2004 Movement Issue
Scott Webster & Randy Lawrence:
About The Diplomatic Pouch
We are back! Hopefully we will not have to use the SET ABSENCE command again!
David E Cohen:
Design of a Variant: Maharajah's Diplomacy, Part III
David explains some of the changes, additions, removals, extras, etc.,
he's made to his Maharajah variant. A must-read for any fan of this brilliant design.
Solution to the Curious Case of the False Start
Manus, finally, provides us with the solution to his perplexing, profound,
puzzling problem. I'd suggest you set up the board to follow along, you'll need it!
Is IT Broken?
Randy, co-editor of the 'Zine, provides us with his educated,
intelligent, well-founded view of the Italy-Turkey alliance. (Hey,
if you can't pat yourself on the back when you write the introduction
for your own article, when can you?)
A fascinating look at a recent Dip variant, taking place around the
ancient Mediterranean lands. Definitely worth a read, and then a game.
Those Who Can, Teach
Alastair takes us on a journey through the ins and outs of the TeachMe
format for Diplomacy. Let him teach you as to the merits of this idea
(I had to try to make some joke, give me a break!)
More News From The Italian Front
Sergio takes us on a thrilling ride through the changes wrought in how the Machiavelli
variant runs in various Judges, and gives us a crash course in the many bugs fixed.
Eva provides us with some, umm, interesting parodies of famous Beatles songs
(yes, I know "famous Beatles songs" is rather redundant).
Seriously, these are a lot of fun.
Interview with Alain Tésio
Millis Miller provides us with an insightful interview with
the creator of the floc.net mapper, Alain Tésio.
