Diplomacy 3 - Gameplay

Diplomacy is a strategic board game. Its main distinction from most board wargames is negotiation: Players spend much of their time forming (and betraying) alliances with other players. Set in Europe just before the beginning of World War I , Diplomacy is played by seven players, each controlling the armed forces of a major European power.

I used this one and it worked fine - I had it in a folder on my USB stick and then I could load the program on different PCs. You do need a special windows file (also given on the Website) and it worked well when I just copied it into the Diplomacy folder.

If we would have continued the game, betrayal would have be inevitable :twisted:
Sure, since we would basically have had to start eating ourselves, its like the last few weeks on Survivor.

So looks like there are plenty of options for programs (we should post those links to the main Diplomacy thread). If there is interest, I'll run a game. Doesn't have to be right now, think it over, let me know.
