Russia Rules

By far Russia has been the best to me. especially after that sweet alliance with Turkey. Austria was easily taken out.

Best alliances


Though triple alliances are by far the best and most fun

Italy is the hardest to play since there are no easy attack options, only through an early alliance can Italy survive.

Though the same could be said of Austria but I play Austria pretty well.

Italy attacks France

If I were to attack France with Italy what would be the best first two season moves.

reply to tim's "best alliance" question/post

1 is the best alliance; here's how good i think they all are:
3)helpful.but mostly pointless
4)can be very useful, but the otperson is too likely to attack you
7)theres no one left to attack but russia and italy so it gets boring

The name of the Italian game is "Patience."
If there was a 2nd word, it would be "Timing."

Agreed, if you can slip AVenice into Trieste in Sp01, then go for it. Also, if you know that neither Venice nor Tyrolia will be attacked then slide your 2 armies into both on Sp01.
Whatever you do, KEEP TALKING. If you can't manipulate the game from the "weak" Italian position, then you can't do it from anywhere!!!

PS Breaking into the South of France is a lot easier than it looks... you just need the right friends.

I play Diplomacy in school and allying with Austria against Turkey is suiside. In my experiance moving to to Tyrolia and Venice on the first turn to attack Austria is the best move for Italt.

I recently had the misfortune of getting Italy as my power for my very first game. I was new to Diplomacy but I had heard Italy was the worst power to be. I didn't panic and I decided to get help, and I fopund it. Turkey fell into my back pocket. I then persuaded him to let me convoy to Greece by Fall 1901. This left me Tunis for the next fall. I then attacked Austria from the south and then from the west. After they were finished. I turned West to France and Turkey turned to Russia. I then won by collecting 18 centers from the already defeaten Germans and the stuggling French and English. Basically, dont panic if you are assigned Italy. It has the unique advantage of being able to be involved in both the main theaters(West and East)

It seems to me that theres a whole lotta ways that Austria can end up dead in this game. Me personally, i enjoy the fun of the constant risk, let alone the skill that it takes to be an international diplomat with your surrounding nations. I still stick by my previous post though, if Germany and Austria ally (for real) and know what theyre doing, they pretty much can easily destroy the opposition.

I am damn new at this game (I'm still on my first), but I am finding Italy to be hella enjoyable. I'm making assumptions here, but in a game with a bunch of newbies, grabbing marseilles is really easy, and a smart Italy (with Brit. help) should be able to divide France (if you count Spain and Portugal as french, which they might as well be) in a decent way so as to not be at each others throats while being powerful enough to kill most everyone. And if the mediterranean can be turned into an Italian Lake, losing should be really hard.
Perhaps this only works with the new and inexperianced (or not even, since my France killing attempts failed), but it is fun. Italy is perhaps the most needed ally after a country is destroyed, and can through around quite a bit of weight when it needs to.
Besides, being the fun nation doesn't require winning. It just requires ruining the well laid plans of others.
