A game of standard classic Diplomacy in which less 7 players participate. It was a term used more often in the old days when folks played primarily face to face & sometimes 7 were not available, so they developed ways in which 6 or less could still play a game, of sorts.

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.
