Be realistic. Consider what blue (in this case) sees as 'his right' and then see if you have any wiggle room.

Also consider the quality of the player. With most good players nothing needs to be said..he'll leave you alone if he realises that taking on you will allow red to gain a decisive advantage.

Yet if you are a new player, he will probably worry that YOU will screw up (and may take you out for safety's sake). In that case, you would be wise to try a little diplomacy, if only so he knows you are not going to blow the game by attacking him and giving it to red.

Is breaking a truce against the rules or just bad play warranting a bad rating?

Bad rating. Truces (making or breaking) aren't an official rule. But for those who say that truces aren't part of "world domination" - you're being unrealistic. Nor were truces against the rules in the original Hasbro, tho Hasbro's changed its rules from time to time as the years pass.

Truces are good, how else are you going to take out a player who's grown too strong? By fighting another player? GET REAL; unless of course you can finish that player off to take his spoils.

As for asking about a truce, I like your idea of making him come up with something.

You: Red is quite powerful
Him: Yup
You: I don't even want Canada, fighting over this continent means nothing to me.
Him: maybe you could pull out to fight red.
You: Hey, good idea! (lol, idiot)

DON'T! Asking for a truce is a desperate cry for help. According to the rules it can only be proposed in open game chat. By doing this you acknowledge your own weakness and inability to win on your own. Most likely you are wimpy and have no friends. A weak alliance with a random person over the internet is the closest thing to a buddy you have ever had. Admit to yourself you have no hope and simply surrender! NOW!

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

Truces are an excellent form of strategy, being able to negotiate with other people is what separates playing against people and playing against machines. People who don't like truces are probably people who have no diplomatic skills.

The main thing to watch out for I would say is being absolutely clear of what your proposing, for instance with a truce give parameters, either set an amount of turns it will last stating the round it ends on or make it continuous with one turn to break for example.

In your case a simple "i'm not interested in canada and will withdraw my troops next turn" will do, it doesn't require an answer that way and blue can do as he pleases. This offer isnt a truce however so there is every chance your just feeding blue a bigger army that will come after you.

Don't take it badly if an offer is refused, if somebody breaks an agreement don't bother getting into a verbal rally just state in the chat your truce has been broken and make use of the feedback system to discredit the dishonesty

If you have something of legitimate value to offer Blue in the truce, just lay it out. If you don't, then I would not bother - you are not asking for a truce, you are asking for pity.

For example, if Blue is going to waste valuable resources attacking you, simply say something along the lines of "ya know, Blue, I really don't have much of an interest in Canada here, and I know it would be good for you to have. If you hold off for a turn, I will pull out of here, allowing you to take it with fewer losses".

Truces can be very powerful in these games, if used appropriately. Even though I am new here, I would still advise to follow the posted rules - if you go for the truce, do it in chat. It is not impossible to do so - it is the equivalent of making truces in an actual board game version where everyone is in the same room listening.

Look at the game chat and game logs of Game 7161863. Really good example of how I went from 6 troops to winning the game with truces (I didn't have to break any truces to win the game either :D ). Diplomacy is key the game. Read my blog on how to get to colonel in under 100 games for more info about truces. Look at my score if u don't believe my way works.

Seriously if you actually want a truce, ask for it. This offends some players, but if you think it's OK it's OK.

My way would usually be more subtle -
"I'm not proposing a truce, a deal, or anything - but I'm gonna do x, I'm not gonna do y unless you do z. So you might want to hit player a not me."

Or occasionally I will propose " I won't hit a from b while you're there, if you won't hit b from a. This lasts all game, but we can attack each other elsewhere, or hit a and b from another direction."
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.
