Diplomacy (PC)

 

The original incarnation of Diplomacy is regarded as one of the greatest strategy board games ever made, and as a result, it has been translated to the computer on several occasions. But somewhere along the way, those versions lost some of the board...

An exercise in backstabbing!

The Classic Board Game Goes Digital...

Curve: 8 – In the heavily saturated strategy game market it is nice to see that someone can get back to the basics and make a game that is more about planning a strategy than memorizing hotkeys and map details.

Play nice with your neighbors... at least until you're ready to betray them!

Now, that is a very watered down description of the gameplay. The strategy involved in playing Diplomacy is actually quite complex and can involve a long list of checks and balances to ensure that your support is there when you need it, since support...

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'Nice doggie' until you can find a rock.

As an avid boardgamer, I have a great respect for the classic strategygame, Diplomacy. Its simple and elegant rule set immediatelyhighlights the most important aspect of the game—negotiation. Diplomacy is all about forging alliances, soothing potential...

A solid, faithful port of the classic tabletop game of negotiation. Single-player mileage may vary, but the language-independent multiplayer opportunities will allow Diplomacy fans a much-needed chance to find opponents.

Diplomacy - The art and practice of conducting negotiations between nations

I have to say that I really enjoyed playing Diplomacy, and that this game can only get better if I was playing against humans rather then the computer-controlled AI. If you are a big strategy buff then this is a game you should check out.

Asa game, Diplomacy has been around since the 1950s (as my brief researchreveals) in tabletop format, though the concept of diplomacy -- workingout potentially violent situations with treatise and talk rather thanbombs and bullets -- has been around...

Diplomacy is pretty much a straight computer port of the venerable old strategy game, so if you played the board version then you pretty much know what to expect from this game. For the rest of you I'll begin with a brief introduction to how the game...

Diplomacy is one of the finest board games ever created. Set during the tumultuous years prior to the Great War, it's a seven-player game of trust and deceit, where the aim is to take half of Europe by force. The drama, however, lies not in conquest...

Product Specifications

May your wit be as sharp as your sword, because Avalon Hill's DIPLOMACY has captured the true spirit of the legendary board game. You'll start as one of the seven pre-WWI superpowers, England, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Turkey, and Austria-Hungary. These political boundaries will become your prey as you negotiate your way to the top. Beg, threaten, plead and argue your way past nations where friends become pawns and enemies become allies. You'll have to be cunning, smooth, and deceitful. This is a game that can't be left to chance.
