The classic game of negotiation, cunning, and deceit is back. Through negotiations, alliances, and intrigue, expand your empire over pre-World War I Europe. Form alliances and unhatch your traitorous plots as you negotiate and outwit- in a delicate balance of cooperation and competition- to gain dominance of the continent. Your success hinges not on the luck of the dice, but your cunning and cleverness.

This game is fun, but it will make you hate your friends. Breaking trust is a fundamental part of this game.
Well, the game is aptly named; it is the archetypical game of diplomacy. Some people like diplomacy games, some don't. I used to like it, but these days, "diplomacy" to me mostly means broken promises, pathetic whining, backstabbing, lying, and that stuff just isn't as fun as it used to be. Still, I can't deny that the game is a pretty nice piece of game design.
2013-12-24 :I don't get why people call this a friendship killer - there are plenty of screw-your-friends games out there which are a lot worse2018-05-11 : Another 7-player FTF game of it has convinced me this game is past its due date. It just takes too long for what it is and the same feeling can be gotten from playing much more thematic games like Sword of Rome or Game of Thrones, which also happen to play in half the time.
--Jan2005-- Enjoy it a more when not playing with friends. Hmm...
