Calling all future strategists! Come play games of conquest and strategy this summer. Diplomacy is a board game based on true historical events on the eve of World War I. Using alliances, tactics, and even a little betrayal, you will lead a European power in a struggle to outwit your opponents. We will combine playing our games with some discussions of strategy, geography, and history. As we progress throughout the week we will explore different variations of the game while also mixing in some other competitive and cooperative strategy games like Risk! and Pandemic. Come try your hand for a week in the delicate balance of cooperation and competition that is Diplomacy.
