Diplomacy, The Brain... and Ghandi

Oooft.

I wrote an actual Diplomacy article...

Mostly based on my musings with V!

Any resemblance to any real life Diplomacy Players is entirely coincidental.

Witty, clever, and fascinating read. I found myself nodding and learning as I scrolled down the page. For those - like myself - who are on a losing streak, we can definitely learn something here.
Dipomacy is a beautiful game. Mostly. It has to be played beautifully.
