In this game, it's your diplomatic skills, not merely your military prowess, that count. It's the early 1900s, and World War I is looming on the horizon. Use your flair for negotiation to decide the fate of the world as you deal with the world's major powers, including Austria, Hungary, England, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, and Turkey. Study detailed maps of North America, Europe, and the Middle East to see where military forces are positioned. Your goal: to outsmart your opponents through cooperation.
Anything that introduces Diplomacy to the next generation is to be welcomed, but this game is a bit week. I would suggest getting the board game instead and joining in one of the many e-mail games on line. You will enjoy it more without this interface.
