Diplomacy has taken the plea ‘Please let me win’ to its extreme. To win the game you simply have to convince everyone else to let you win the game! If you are not very persuasive you might find that rather than 10 pieces to move you are left with a solitary army in some North African desert. Diplomacy is a unique game as you cannot win without help from other people, there are no dice and there is no luck in the outcomes. Once you have worked out the possible strategic moves it is question of talking everyone else into letting them work. Diplomacy is a seven player game designed to reflect the political situation in Europe during the First World War. There is a two player version of the game Intimate Diplomacy.
