See the revised game start announcements below!
Check out the connections in the Diplomatic Pouch with all of the information you need to play Diplomacy on the Internet at:
I also have taken over the Postal portion of the Pouch: http:/
and TAP on the web is there at:
where the szine resides in html format. Presently, issues from #190 to the current issue are there, and I will be updating the back issues gradually someday. Also, check out Stephen Agar's more extensive efforts at: and
Peter Sullivan's subszine is out of stasis, and all the back issues can be accessed via :
Peter was saying that he would be unlikely to be starting any new games in the Octopus until "at least the start of 2002." He had been hereby declared to be in official indeterminate stasis and that date was now a "whenever". But Peter is now clearly back and appears in most issues!!! In the meantime, Rip Gooch and Dave Partridge had been picking up the choo-choo game slack in TAP. But Rip also has been missing in action lately, I don't have an update but he and Dave Partridge communicate. Contact Rip at xyropedes of or Dave at rebhuhn of for more info.
The TAP mailing list has moved! It now is even BETTER protected than it was. I even have a bit of trouble posting to it. To post to this list, send your email to: tap of But this is completely moderated, it won't go out to the list unless I approve it. In general, I intend to keep traffic down to just the szine, as we've been doing.
General information about the mailing list is at:
You can sign up from there, or send E-Mails to: Tap-request of; with the word `help' in the subject or body (don't include the quotes), and you will get back a message with instructions. You must know your password to change your options (including changing the password, itself) or to unsubscribe. Normally, Mailman will remind you of your mailing list passwords once every month, although you can disable this if you prefer. This reminder will also include instructions on how to unsubscribe or change your account options. There is also a button on your options page that will email your current password to you. A big, big thank you for Millis Miller for setting this all up!!

There is a very special "search for" coming up in issue #300, and I'm going to offer a hundred buck reward for that one, so I'm also going to up the ante on Kevin through issue #300 to $1 billion dollars.... no, make that $100, can't quite afford to be THAT generous. There have been some recent "sightings" of Kevin Tighe. And he's the reason I first started this feature (for those of you who don't recall) and he's the one I continue to be most interested in finding. This may take a bit of real detective work, but as a hint, like many of us Diplomacy players, I believe he is out there making money on some of the poker circuits. I also would like ALL of the previous found people who are still getting the szine to write me SOMETHING for the 300th issue for this section. I know I've been having Doug Beyerlein write me lots of little notes along the way, not all of whom I've been printing, and so I have some things from him already. But he may want to send me something else. What should you write? Something on what you've been up to, a reminiscence of Diplomacy times or friends past, whatever, it's up to you, but I want something from as many of you as possible. While we're at it, some of you other old timers still getting the szine (you know who you are, but I'm thinking most particularly of people like Tom Nash, Dan Stafford, Bruce Geryk, and Steve Hutton, most of whom were once szine editors) also should write me something!!! I plan to have issue #300 be the first issue of 2006, so you have the rest of the year. I'll save them up for that issue, but get writing now!!!

Feel free to spend the time looking for some of the backlog. Let's get Derek, Sylvain, Steve, Ed, Tom, Bill, Gregory, and ESPECIALLY Kevin found too!!! This is a regular continuing feature of the szine and I will be introducing a new "search for" every five issues. Moreover, you can win a $25 prize for finding some previous target who went unfound in the original $50 period. That means that if Steve Heinowski or Ed Henry or Tom Hurst or Bill Quinn or Gregory Stewart or Derek Nelson or Sylvain LaRose or John Smythe is "found" from now on it is worth $25.

Winners will receive credit for Dip hobby activities that I will pay out as requested by the winner. Subscribe to szines here or abroad, run your own contests, publish a szine, finance a web page, GO TO A DIPLOMACY CONVENTION or whatever. Spend it all right away or use me as a bank to cover hobby activities for years. What must you do to win? Get me a letter to the editor for TAP from the person we're searching for.
This is very important, just finding them doesn't do it. They have to write me a letter. The final judge as to the winner of any contest will be the target himself and I reserve the right to investigate the winning entry. When you find someone I'm looking for, you should ask him to send me a letter for print that includes a verification of who "found" him.

The British representative is the editor of Mission From God, John Harrington. John may be contacted at 1 Churchbury Close, Enfield, Middlesex EN1 3UW, UK.
E-Mail: fiendish of, John.Harrington of
Please include the full name and address of the foreign publisher with your order, if possible, as well as the szine title. Make your check in US dollars out to me personally or in GBP to John if you're doing things from that end. I will conduct business for Canadians as well, if I can, but prefer to deal in US dollars with them if possible, or Canadian dollars cash. To subscribe to American szines, the system works in reverse.
We have closed the European continental branch, as I think most of you had figured out.
And the ISE in Australia hadn't had much real action in recent years, and Brendan Whyte has moved on to Jerusalem!!! Brendan still produces what I find to be the most readable small szine in the worldwide hobby. Did you all realize that? Write to Brendan at his new Jerusalem address and ask him about subscribing, I'm not sure what the new deal will be. Department of Geography, Faculty of Social Sciences, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Mount Scopus, Jerusalem 91905, ISRAEL. His travelogues are wonderful, I particularly enjoyed the recent one describing his trip to Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius and the areas around and in-between. You all know what countries those are right? He also had a wonderful experience in a few hours on Belarussian soil stuck in a border crossing.

WorldMasters 2002 Email Diplomacy Tournament Finals are over, and in a game that went to 1914 (nice idea here to let the finals go on for longer, a feature of WorldMasters that I applaud) Julio Pereira gets to 14 centers as Russia and TAKES the 2002 WorldMasters Tournament. Congratulations to Julio, and salutes and felicitations to the growing impact of the Brazilians in the Diplomacy hobby. Julio is a fierce player and a good guy to boot. See for full details. Since I didn't get sufficient interest to get a team in for 04, I am back on the WorldMasters Tournament Management Committee again. See:
for details on that, the Round 2 draws are out and games are going.
I got called in as a STANDBY for Turkey in game WM04R221!!! Now I'm negotiating with Lee-Man (G), Buffalo (E), Glenn (F), Dan (A), Urco (T), and Ian (I). This is fun, let's see if I can shake the game up a bit. Right now Ian, Buffalo, and Glenn are leading with Lee-man looking like the first one out, likely two of those three will go on to the semis. More on that as the game develops. I've been hearing that Dave Partridge's game is pretty interesting too, but haven't seriously looked in on any of the others.
It is helping now that I've joined the Yahoogroup WM04-Chat where this discussion is happening. You can join too! But most of the talk there has been about Yann Clouet and the French Hobby's new "World Palmares Evaluation" of FTF Diplomacy Play. Of course, Yann Clouet comes out #1, further backing up winning the John Koning award, and I am 1442nd (in a tie with Mark Nelson and Tony Dickinson, among others!). This uses lots of tournament results, more than 750 of them, and really is quite comprehensive. See those rankings at:

DIPDOM NEWS SECTION (with letters)
Obscure and not-so-obscure ramblings on the state of the hobby and its publications, custodians, events, and individuals with no guarantee of relevance from the fertile keyboard of Jim-Bob, the E-Mail Dip world, and the rest of the postal hobby. My comments are in italics and ((double quotation marks)) like this. Bold face is used to set off each individual speaker. I should also make a note that I do edit for syntax and spelling on occasion.
The game Diplomacy is a copyrighted product owned by Hasbro and all reproductions or other use of that material in this szine is intended to be personal use and not infringe on those rights in any way. All reproductions are done at a heavy financial loss to the editor and thus are without the remotest possibility of commercial intent, except to promote THE game, the Game of Diplomacy, which you all should purchase from Hasbro or other duly licensed distributors.
Stephen Agar has matched the Hasbro rule lists and more with some of the even older rulebooks. Check these out if you like:
Nice of them to make BOTH of these available. And all seven different US rulebooks for Diplomacy can now be found here courtesy of Stephen Agar (relatively new address for this):

Also, I'd be interested in hearing any Hobby Award Nominations for:
The 2005 Don Miller Award for Meritorious Service;
The 2005 Rod Walker Award for Literature;
The 2005 John Koning Award for Player Performance;
The 2005 Fred Hyatt Award for GM Performance;
A 2005 Kathy Byrne Caruso Award for Lifetime Achievement (if warranted).
The award ballot for this year will be publicized in my Issue 300 in January.

Diplomacy World Issue Deadlines:
Deadline Winter 2005, Issue #96: December 1, 2005
I have this issue in my hands and I intend to publish it as soon as I get this issue out. I shouldn't be surprised to learn that Tim Haffey has resigned as lead editor, which casts us back into oblivion, for what? The 20th time in 96 issues? Something like that anyway. What we really need is another good lead editor who wants to push this for the next year or so to issue 100, or maybe we should just bring it down now? I told people to contact Tim and come forward, and no one really did. My sense was that DW was being read, just no one was writing for it. That is a shame. But I ***KNOW*** I cannot be lead editor for two szines, I just can't. So if no one steps forward, the soon to be published Diplomacy World 96 will be the last. But it has been said before, and it has been resurrected, so we'll see what happens now.

ATTENTION: There is a new company doing a new PC Diplomacy game:
This game is out and available. You all should read the interview in the Spring 2005 movement issue of the Diplomatic Pouch (and I mean ALL!!!!!!! of you!!!!!) that I think you can find at:

David Hood (Fri, 28 Oct 2005 20:30:31 -0400)
Time to start making your plans to attend the 2006 North American Diplomacy Championships, held February 24-26, 2006 in conjunction with Prezcon in Charlottesville, VA. The Diplomacy tournament will be run by David Hood using the Dixiecon/Prezcon system that has been utilized in several past Dipcons. There will be four Diplomacy rounds beginning on Friday night, with no time limits except for the Sunday round.
Dipcon is always a highlight of the Diplomacy circuit for the year - get more information now at and or you can email the tournament director at davidhood of for specific information. The Prezcon folks are committed to making this a very special Dipcon, with a specific Dipcon registration fee and T-shirt, so check out their site for more information. The Dipcon committee of David Hood, Michael Lowrey and Andy Marshall has many years of Diplomacy tournament direction experience between them, so screw-ups are extremely unlikely. And Director of Fun Andy Marshall has guaranteed you WILL have fun at this Dipcon, or your money back.
David, davidhood of

Tell me anything you like about the recent past in music. List a top two, a top ten, or a top 100, I don't care, just tell me something!! We're beginning to gear up for a "best of 2005" section.

((This letter is a general update from Doug Kent, since it is a bit bittersweet and he has lots of friends here I'll print it all, I think he wanted me to.... and besides, we're quiet otherwise.))

Doug Kent (11/25/05)
Dear Jim, I'll try to write something for #300, but it probably won't get done until Xmas or New Year's weekend if that is still in time. ((Absolutely, all of you thinking about writing something, issue #300 is going to come out late January, so you have some time!!! I've got some really good things so far, but need more. I like these issues to be around 100 pages, so I need about forty more to make my day....)) I am looking forward to getting out of here in March. ((That's tremendous, I somehow had thought it was another whole year, best of luck staying on schedule to get out.)) Anybody know anyone hiring in Dallas? I'll send them a resume, as it looks like I won't be going back to AmeriFleet. ((I kinda doubt it, I don't think I have too many readers in the Dallas area, but I'll print it, you never know.)) Lots of stress lately about that, plus my Dad passed away on November 9th from respiratory failure after a long series of illnesses (diabetes, Parkinson's Disease, strokes, etc.). I didn't get to go to the funeral either, but that's the way it goes. ((My condolences, I'm sorry to hear that.)) Go Giants (football), Texas Rangers make any moves lately? ((Not that I've heard directly, but they are said to be seeking pitching and willing to trade some offense as they finished second in the deal that the Red Sox made for Josh Beckett. I think they might trade Soriano's relatively poor defense for a good starter and they're trying to sign Paul Byrd, who I like. Late word, Soriano goes off to DC and they ALSO finish second with Paul Byrd, who signed with Cleveland. I wonder if there is any chance they will trade with the Red Sox for Manny? I don't see much else earthshattering that the Rangers can do. Sorry!))

"So I called up George and he called up Jim, I said let's make a deal.
He said he'd talk to him. Gonna start a church where you can save yourself,
You can make some noise, When you've got no choice...
You told me useful things, what people think of me, I guess I should thank you.
It's true, then I agree... I'm all alone, I've got no choice,
I'm all alone, I've got no choice."
From "Got No Choice" by the incomparable Mark Cutler, from the CD Mark Cutler and Useful Things.
If you want to submit orders, press, or letters by E-Mail, you can find me through the Internet system at "burgess of". If anyone has an interest in having an E-Mail address listed so people can negotiate with you by computer, just let me know. FAX orders to (401) 277-9904 if you let me know in advance to be sure the fax machine is set up.
I am continuing to note cut or failed support orders with a small "s" instead of a capital "S". This will make it easier on the E-Mailed version of the szine to see what happened, since the italics don't show there. The italics DO show on the web page just fine.
Standby lists:
Mike Barno, Dick Martin, Brad Wilson, Jack McHugh, Glenn Petroski, Steve Emmert, Mark Kinney, Vince Lutterbie, Eric Brosius, Paul Rauterberg, Bob Osuch, Doug Kent, Sean O'Donnell, Vern Parker, Heath Gardner, Paul Kenny, Jeff O'Donnell, and Dan Gorham stand by for regular Diplomacy.
Let me know if you want on or off these lists, especially OFF. Standbies get the szine for free and receive my personal thanks.

We've got lots of openings in the subszines, check them out!!! Especially, contact Rip Gooch for Railway Rivals, see Rip's subszine elsewhere in most issues of TAP. Come on, help me out!!! Contact Rip Gooch directly at xyropedes of Rip has been a bit missing in action lately, but I am assured that he SHALL return.
I'm ready to start a new Breaking Away game, who's interested??? Challenge David Partridge again as he is in, so are Brendan Whyte and Alexander Woo. Anyone else?
I am willing to open another new game if there is enough interest!!! Also, is there any interest in another game of Nuclear Yuppie Evil Empire 7x7 Dip? I know it may be getting tired, but I really like it. We have Karl Schmit and Sean O'Donnell on the list, let's get seven!! It's FREE!!!
I also am starting a game of the variant I designed, Spy Diplomacy. Signups for that are now open. I'll publish the rules shortly or you can look at them at Bruce Edwards and Eric Ozog are signed up. I'll try to remember to punch in the rules in the next issue.
John Harrington is offering to guest GM a game of Office Politics. Any interest in that?? Let me or John know! Jody McCullough and Bruce Edwards are interested, anyone else?
And since Colonia is over, Harold Reynolds is looking to start something else.
Also, I am going to design some postal rules for Devil Take the Hindmost, and we have an opening here: Bruce Edwards, Mike Barno, and Eoghan Barry are signed up. Postal rules from me will be forthcoming shortly, on my never ending to-do list. I will get them in SOON! I'm more likely to get these things started if I see some interest..... I've GOT to do this now, Eoghan is getting tired of waiting....
Right now, the other thing going is the Modern Diplomacy game with Wings. Sean O'Donnell, Bob Holt, Rick Desper, Alexander Woo, Dave Partridge, and Eric Ozog are signed up for that. I will start it when I get a full complement of players, the other Modern game is now done!

I'M TRYING TO TAKE OVER Phil Reynolds' two regular Diplomacy games somewhere in TAP. One is going to Harold Reynolds' subszine, since Colonia is over and I'll take the other. I am calling for orders from everyone NOW, and whichever game looks easier to start I will give to Harold, but I'm getting no response. Should we just shut these down?? I have Phil's last issue, #44, but that was published way back in December of 2003. I'm not sure if people have moved or whatever in that time, so a little help would be appreciated. And I hope everyone comes back, but I might need some standbys. I'm going to start nagging so I can get these restarted. Please let me know if you care playing, thanks to Karl Schmit for responding each time that he's in....
Us and Them: Winter 1901 was published and it was early on, but I think I can find all the players. Hank Alme (Austria), Karl Schmit (England), John Power (Germany), Tim Snyder (Italy), and Fred Wiedemeyer (Russia) are all here already and Paul Boymel (Turkey) and Marc Ellinger (France) are locatable. Please let me know if you plan to continue!!!
We are the Champions: This one is even earlier, ONLY Spring 1901 had been published. But again, most of the players are around here, and I've located Paul Boymel (Italy) and Marc Ellinger (Turkey). Dave Partridge (Austria) is here of course, Graham Wilson (England) is just joining us, Fred Wiedemeyer (France) and Kevin Wilson (Germany) are here. Paul Risner probably is not going to be able to continue in the game.
You can find that last issue of Phil's szine at:
Call for orders is NOW, the next season after the results above. You should already have submitted these before. Then I'll give one of the games to Harold. I'm not getting any traction or writebacks on these games, does everyone just want to abandon them???

Game Notes:
1) Terry is still having some medical problems, but rather than hold up the game anymore, Eric Ozog has agreed to pay attention to the game and negotiate and submit orders for Terry. We all hope this will be a brief interlude. Eric originally brought Terry into the Diplomacy hobby all those many years ago, and so I'm glad he's agreed to do this.
2) I have a discrepancy on Buddy's cell phone number. Note above I have x5771, while below in his press he says it is x5571. One is a typo, the other is correct. Could Buddy or someone please clarify? Thanks!

(FRANCE to THE BOARD): I had to put Kathleen in the hospital, and that took all of my time. flying high to Morocco caused water to settle in her legs and feet. That depressed her and she did not feel like eating. The body looks for something to do, and without food in the tummy, will process toxins. There goes blood poisoning.
She became excessively weak, pale, and lost 20 pounds in a week. I had to pull her, dead weight, wet and cold, out of the bathtub, causing me to fall hard against the wall so I did not drop her. I found her on the floor between her swivel chair and an end table, and had to keep stuffing pillows under her to get her elevated.
She is home now, since Friday. I feed her, clean her, change her, and everything else, being sure to walk her once an hour around the house to build up her strength. She is 90 years old.
In the meantime, I am in a new house. I was without a telephone for a month. My printer and scanner quit, so I had to order new. Those are nice, with a lot of features.
Ready to go again.
(BUDDY to DWAYNE): Glad to hear from you.
(STAR TREK PRESS): Note the following message from Captain Pike to Gul Dukat, "Thank you for the gift of Deep Space 9, I look forward to future cooperation between the Federation and the Cardassian Empire."
(FRANCE to BOARD): I can not receive mail at my new house yet. No trash pickup either. I am receiving mail at my previous address, and packages at my new address. My cell phone is 1-540-226-5571 ((See above note on the phone number, is this right?)). My new house phone is 1-540-898-3386. Cheaper for me if you call the house phone. Waiting to hear from you, Jeff. Oh, more than 10 inches of snow last night.
(MATT'S MUSHROOM WAFFLE WORKS-WORLD): Oof. Bad hallucinations in the south.
(FRANCE to ITALY). I say, ole chap! Get that threatening army out of North Africa, or I will.
(ELFERIC-UNCA BERNIE): I am sorry, Dear Uncle, but the Toadfather's armies were milling around in a coffee-clutch and France was looking so ripe for an invasion.
(JIM-BOB to UNCA BERNIE): And that is the way of the world. We don't want to be in the way of an escape from boredom!
(FRANCE to GERMANY): Glad to be playing with old friends.
(ERIC to JIM-BOB): Terry wasn't able to make our Deadwoodcon last weekend because he was back in the hospital. I'm going to call him to see how he's doing. Tom Howell, his girlfriend Barb, and John Biehl were here.
(JIM-BOB to ERIC): We're all sorry to hear that. I hope they can get things under control soon! Send him our best wishes if you talk to him!!!
(FRANCE to TURKEY): If they can't get you out, I will have to come in after you. How did you think you would be able to keep Bulgaria, anyway? Think! I will be advising my allies, and that will smart.

Game Notes:
1) Everything sailing along here - well, maybe not see the press and I had complaints from people in this game about problems updating the web page. I've solved those now so these should be up promptly.

(AUS-TUR): I am on the front lines, I need the extra units, including for the ser centre. Turkey having serbia was not part of the agreement. you are to cruise the south seas. that's why I build armies and you the fleets.
(ENGLAND): Hoping at least a couple of these work.
(BOOB to KARL): Nay sorry, no such luck, just one succeeded, to be precise.

Game Notes:
1) The FREGT draw is rejected, there are no new proposals. We're off the draw clock, as seems clear at this point.
2) Dan Gorham is taking over as England, but complains that none of you responded to his messages. Thus, I am granting his request for a delay. If all of you would be so kind to welcome him to the game BEFORE you snub him, I would appreciate it. There will be no further delay, fall orders will be due Christmas Eve. I have orders on file for most of you, check with me if you're unsure of what they are.
