The Game of Diplomacy

Ah, Diplomacy. I won my first game of it, but my darling husband suggests there is more to the game than, well, just simply winning. After some research I have decided he is right. In playing Diplomacy moral posturing seems untenable and anti-social tendencies are triumphant. Diplomacy is a game of skill... the art of letting someone else have your way for you... it's like feeding a crocodile so it will eat you last and then using that time to plot how you are going to kill it before it is hungry enough to come for you (Hat tip: Winston Churchill). Posted by Hello
