At the risk of asking someone to explain the joke... could someone explain the joke?

This is the standard Diplomacy Board:


I had assumed the paranthesised comment was because Egypt isn't even on the board, although it's probably on some of the variants.

If we can't handle the Royal Navy, then options 1 & 2 are a no-go. That only leaves Egypt.

Too bad there isn't a fourth option... spend a few years building up the French Navy.

Although a victory in Egypt would allow us, perhaps, to play in the world of Empire*, I will advise to risk our strength neither in England nor in Egypt. Stay where we are. 43 and wait for a better opportunity.


* A French comic where Napoleon succeeded in Egypt and is now battling Wellington in India. Also, moderate steampunk - the French have steam tanks and are introducing armed dirigibles, but the Brits supplement their thin red line, gurkhas and turbaned lancers with steam bazookas and their battles are plotted by a steam computer operated by Mary Shelley.

Let's brush up on our Egyptian Arabic.

Good one to use when Napoleon is out with his rich girlfriend

Also, as you rightly noted, I couldn't be bothered with the rest of the convoy orders.
