Air Sea Diplomacy Demonstration Game

 

Air-Sea Diplomacy adds a few new elements to Regular Diplomacy. New units are the airplane and the submarine.

There are still 34 supply centers. However, instead of building one-for-one, each supply center has an economic value of 7. Each unit has a cost of 4 economic points. Therefore, at start, each power starts with 5 units, while Russia starts with 7 units.

The submarine may do everythng that a fleet can do, and may also be ordered to the sub-space of each body of water. Submarines may capture supply centers. The airplane has a movement factor of 4 and an attack factor of one. Planes cannot capture supply centers.

At-start builds are all optional. Planes can exist in a province with any other unit. No others units may share a province.

Planes of different nationalities, even enemies, may share the same province. If three or more planes attempt to land in the same province, all are eliminated.

The creator of this variant, Buddy Tretick, and his son Jim played a few turns to demostrate the various units and possible moves. A full set of rules will be provided later.
