I played my first game of Diplomacy tonight; since we were all beginners, we very quickly got into a stalemate situation. It ended up being Russia and Austro-Hungary vs. England and France. I have a few questions:
1) Do any of you do PBEM Diplomacy? Does it work fairly well?
2) Can someone explain how coastal zones work for fleets? We were never sure when you could move between sea areas and coastal areas, or which ones you could go into and leave, etc.
3) How does the game balance out Russia’s initial starting army advantage?
