14 player Versailles

Could we get a 14 player version of the Versailles variant?
I know it would be unbalanced but it would make for interesting games.

I too think a 14-player Versailles would be fun. If it were AoE it might be better balanced.

Just to clarify, I think what you mean is you would like a Diplomacy map variant with standard rules and 14 players using the V map, yes? Obviously all the Versailles 'specials' would not apply since they are all as a result of having two countries in V.

Would be really fun to run a 14 (or even more) player match. Especially if everyone started with just 1 or 2 centers.

How hard would it be to convert the Versailles map into a 14 player game?

Playing Versailles with 14 individual players is something that could simulate the online experience in a non-anonymous email or F2F format.

With only seven players, you have to make the major/minor country pairings public, but with 14 players secretly paired up, you wouldn't have that problem.

I'd be down to play a 14 player game even if there were no teams ;D Just to get 14 players on map I think would be fun.

Yes, 14 individual countries would be quite exciting

There is a version of Dip where every SC is a separate power. Crowded?

That’s often called “Chaos”, but it’s not related to the “Chaos” variant option currently supported on this site.
