The game of Diplomacy (mafia players read)

How do you keep score in this game? If it's just a post showing what cities every country controls, couldn't we just keep track of 2 games in 1 thread? 3 weeks is a long time to wait for a 2nd game if there's already 14 people willing to play.

The red dots on the map are 'supply centers' (I think that's the name...) and, if you have a supply center, it can support one army or fleet. Each unit (fleet or army) needs the support of another unit to 'push' another country's units out of the space. This support can come from your own guys OR the guys of another power, if you can convince them to help you. The centers are added up every other turn so if you gain or lose them, your army will get bigger (and more overstretched) or smaller (and more compact...).

I would think that a separate thread for each game might work a bit better to keep them straight.

I don't see a problem with starting up a 2nd game if there are enough players.

edit: what we could do is have one game where everyone uses aim and another game where no instant messenger is allowed.

I just don't know if the mods want both a mafia and 2 diplomacy threads up at the same time.

I have Yahoo IM, but that's the only one. I'm willing to download if it helps, though.

I'm sure if it gets out of hand they will just add another forum and move our threads there.

I have IM if you're splitting the game up that way.
