Diplomacy is a board game first published in 1959 that is more popular today than ever before. Players play major European powers in the years leading up to World War I and strive to be the first to control most of the continent with their armies and navies. But here's the twist: there are no dice, no cards, and nothing random in the game. It all comes down to making (and breaking!) alliances with the other players.
