Getting Started

If you're new to the game, Diplomacy is all about communication, cunning, strategy, and treachery. Oh, the treachery.

Diplomacy is a game that pits players against each other as they vie for control of pre-WW1 Europe. However, unlike other similar games such as Risk, Diplomacy is every bit about negotiating with other players as it is about militaristic strategy.
